Brainworx bx_console Focusrite SC

Posted on: Friday 19th of July 2019

Brainworx Audio has unveiled the bx_console Focusrite SC, a plug-in inspired by two channel strip modules – ISA-110 and -130 – which featured on Focusrite’s rare Studio Console (only 10 were ever made), originally designed by Rupert Neve.  The ISA-110 featured a transformer-coupled mic preamp, a four-band EQ as well as high- and low-pass filters, while the companion ISA-130 module was a compressor, limiter and de-esser combined. ISA rack-mount units were the first products manufactured in 1989 when a new company, Focusrite Audio Engineering Ltd., headed by Phil Dudderidge (of Soundcraft Electronics fame), continued to develop and manufacture Focusrite products after it acquired the assets of Rupert Neve’s company.

bx_console Focusrite SC continues the tradition started by Brainworx with the SSL 4000 plug-in, in that it offers 72 channels based on Brainworx’s patent-pending Tolerance Modeling Technology (TMT). Every one of bx_console Focusrite SC’s 72 channels offers a slightly different sound by modelling the channel-to-channel variances amongst the analogue components. The plug-in adds several additional controls in the EQ and Dynamics sections.

In addition to the usual channel strip controls, Brainworx has thrown in two variable controls: Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) and Virtual Gain. THD is designed to dial in colour and saturation, while Virtual Gain can be used to add simulated noise independently to each channel, giving you an extra dose of analogue vibe.

Focusrite announced that the Brainworx bx_console Focusrite plug-in (retailing for $349) will be free to all Red and Clarett interface hardware owners.
