Top Mix EQ ⋅ bx_hybrid Manual (PDF)
bx_hybrid is a state-of-the-art Mono & Stereo EQ. It contains several unique tools, such as an internal M/S Processor (stereo version only, of course) for Stereo Width Control & a Mono Maker (a Brainworx invention that will mono out any stereo signal up to a certain user-adjustable threshold frequency with only one knob - while automatically compensating for the potential loss in the overall bass-spectrum).
bx_hybrid was designed to map any & all EQ features of the AVID / Digidesign ICON center section EQ knobs! This means 7-band EQ incl. Lo- and Hi-Pass filters with various adjustable filter orders (up to 5th order – 30dB/octave), Lo- and Hi-Shelving EQs, Peak filters, Notch-filters (with adjustable Q!), and another Brainworx invention:
The JOYSTICK EQs – BASS- & PRESENCE SHIFTER EQs (taken from bx_digital) with shiftable center-frequencies (per common request). When used with Digidesign ICON controllers these Shifter EQs can be mapped to and controlled by the Surround Panners of the ICON, making this EQ an 11-band EQ with truly unique ease-of-use! There is nothing like the Bass Shift for tweaking bass-drums, and do try the Presence Shift for accoustic guitars. A sophisticated Auto Solo Mode will solo single frequency bands and tweak Q controls - upon mouse-click or when used with the touch sensitive EQ knobs of the ICON!
With internal Double Precision calculating these EQs work with double resolution in 44 and 48kHz sessions, this way avoiding Nyquist frequency problems and allowing for digital EQing up to 26 kHz in low res sessions.
