Also featured in this release is the Dangerous BAX EQ Plug-In Collection developed by the master of sound at Brainworx. UA say that “the Dangerous BAX EQ will make your mixes and masters clearer, richer, and better. Based on Peter Baxandall’s legendary 1950s EQ — a tone control that graced millions of hi-fi systems — the BAX EQ is a musically voiced “finishing EQ” that sweetens up program material by simultaneously employing broad, open curves and gently sloping cuts.
The Dangerous BAX EQ Plug-In Collection is the only circuit-accurate plug-in emulation of the original analog hardware, exclusively for UAD-2 DSP Accelerators and Apollo-equipped workstations.”
Other changes to the new 7.5 software include;

  • (Console) Plug-in windows are offset for easier viewing when multiple UAD plug-ins are inserted
  • (Console) Numeric key presses are passed to Pro Tools for improved control
  • (Console) Resolved condition that allowed session files to be overwritten without warning
  • (ATR-102) Resolved unresponsive DAW issue when Tape Delay was changed to value of 99
