The New Loud V2!
bx_XL is an M/S stereo mastering limiter. Its main purpose is to help you get your mixes loud while keeping them clear (undistorted). As loud as any major label production - but less squashed than many of them.
While we developed bx_XL V2 we found ourself wondering why it seems to be a “must have” in the audio-world today to “limit” your mixes to the extreme. While you can do so with bx_XL V2 we truly believe that there is a certain stage at which you should STOP to squash your mixes more and more to eventually achieve “huge loudness” or volume.
bx_XL V2 is based upon the M/S technology taken from our “modern classic” M/S EQ bx_digital. We developed this hi-end analogue EQ 2006/2007 and we have offered a plug-in simulation of this EQ ever since. Engineers and magazines around the globe rave about bx_digital so we decided to develop a limiter that “teams up” perfectly with our EQ in mastering situations. bx_digital V2 was voted "Plugin of the Decade" by FutureMusic UK!
