imgScotts Valley, CA (April 18, 2014)—Brainworx, a Direct Developer partner with Universal Audio, has released three new plug-ins for the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform and Apollo audio interface. The plug-ins, the Chandler Limited GAV19T Amplifier, bx_refinement, and bx_saturator V2 plug-ins, are part of new UAD Software v7.6 and are available on Universal Audio’s Online Store.

Available exclusively for UAD-2 DSP Accelerators and Apollo-equipped workstations, the Chandler Limited GAV19T Amplifier Plug-In is an emulation of the dual EL84-powered boutique guitar amp. Inspired by British classics such as Vox and Marshall—and lesser-known ones from Watkins and Selmer—the Chandler Limited GAV19T Amplifier plug-in offers features not found on the original hardware, such as an FX Rack with an onboard noise gate, host-syncable lo-fi delay, Power Soak, and pre/post switchable EQ filter controls.

The Brainworx bx_saturator V2 Plug-In is a multi-band M/S (Mid/Side) processor that allows users to add saturation, drive, and distortion as desired. It features Brainworx´s “True Split” crossover technology, which ensures that the Mid and Side channels are in phase.

The Brainworx bx_refinement Plug-In allows mixing and mastering engineers to remove harsh, hard edges of their tracks, reportedly without dramatically altering the character and tone of their source material. Designed by mastering engineer Gebre Waddell of Stonebridge Mastering, the bx_refinement plug-in is based on a combination of time-tested approaches, modern techniques and more.
