BRAINWORX releases a FREE TDM plug!

A new (free!) TDM plugin from BRAINWORX! brainworx-music.de

You asked for it- so here we go... to celebrate the birth of our own inhouse TDM-team we are releasing our FREE control listening tool bx_solo.

The new 1.0.2 installer includes TDM - RTAS - VST - & AU and is available for MAC and PC. The same will go for all BX TDM plugins for the future.

We will be releasing ALL BX-TOOLS in TDM format during the next few weeks, bx_control will be ported to TDM next (scheduled for a release on Dec 8!)

YES, there will be fair UPGRADES from NATIVE to TDM for all customers and all plugins!!

Cheers from Germany, Dirk Ulrich & BRAINWORX. Website: MS-Mastering Tools by Brainworx-Media

Cheers for that!

I use BX solo in every song, but I am no big fan of RTAS, so this is great news! Kisses,

I'd love to try it, the video of your other products look quite impressive, but I'm on PT 6.4.1 cs3 on OSX 10.3.9 and its not showing up in the plugin list.

arg !! just went to check...

Mac:
  • Intel or PPC CPU (we recommend at least 1 GHz)
  • 256 MB RAM
  • Mac OS X 10.4 or higher
  • Pro Tools 7.0 or higher or a VST / AU compatible host

what a shame, I was in need of a plug like this...

Anyway, great job and yey for freebies !!

AND each (stereo) instantiation takes up 1% of an accel chip and does plugin sharing! Howsabout that?

from BX

Thanks for your nods, guys...!

Regarding the RTAS (PT6.4) issue:
all of our tools need PT 6.9 or higher, BUT there is a TRICK:

You can try to use the VST version in Pro Tools with fxpansions VST2RTAS wrapper!
I have heard of customers who got away with that solution....

Then again... with PT8 knocking on everybodies´ doors it might be time for an upgrade anyway...

Cheers, Dirk / BX.

from bx

One more thing... many people emailed me with ilok names and questions about ilok protection for bx_solo...

bx_solo DOES NOT NEED ANY LICENCE.
Just download and rock - in any format.
Even the TDM version is completely FREE & unprotected.

Cheers, Dirk.

I recently downloaded the bx_solo plug-in to help simplify the process of m/s decoding. First off I must confess I'm new to the m/s technique to begin with but feel I have a pretty good handle on the key points.

What I'd like is some clarification on is how to set up the tracks to record.
Do I need to record a stereo track with Mid mic panned hard left and Side mic panned hard right?
...or is it still necessary to record two mono tracks, Mid and Side, and bus to a stereo Aux with the duplicate of the phase corrected Side signal?

Since I didn't come across a quick tutorial on the plugin I wasn't sure. It seems to me that the purpose of the plug-in is, of course, to simplify the process by being self contained within one stereo track that the two mics are recorded to directly.

Thank you for your enlightenment.

2bit, go to the Cascade Microphones website and under products click Fathead and then under documentation there is a nice, simple 1 page guide that covers recording and decoding in ms.

this is a nice plug! put it on some stereo strings in a pop song at 150%, sounds huge when they come in.

Thank you sevendaysoff for the reference material, however, my question still stands...

Here's the scenario; my Mid mic is on CH1, my Side mic is on Ch2

Do I, 1: Send both channels to a stereo track, record, and then apply bx_solo plugin
Or 2: Record CH1 & 2 on separate mono tracks, replicate and phase correct the Side signal, bus all three tracks to an Aux stereo track and then apply bx_solo plugin

Again, my question is purely in context of properly setting up the tracks whilst using the bx_solo plugin.

Thanks again.
