IK Multimedia is currently offering an 85% discount on MixBox, a versatile mixing and creative effects plug-in. Normally priced at $199.99, it can now be purchased for just $29.99. This deal provides an affordable opportunity for music producers and sound designers to access a comprehensive suite of over 70 effects derived from T-RackS, AmpliTube, and SampleTank.
MixBox is designed to streamline the mixing process by allowing users to create custom chains of up to 8 effects. It also comes with over 600 presets for a quick start. The plug-in can be used within a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) or as a standalone application, offering both sound quality and flexibility.
One of the key features of MixBox is its simple interface. All effects share the same controls, including a low-shelf and a high-shelf filter, eliminating the need to learn different knobs and buttons for each effect. Users can easily drag and drop effects to change the order and save the chain for future use.
MixBox offers an extensive range of effects, catering to various needs and styles. These include EQ, Dynamics, Channel Strip, Filter, Modulation, Saturation, Reverb, Delay, Distortion, and Amp effects. It also introduces four new reverb algorithms for hall, room, plate, and inverse. The plug-in uses high-quality models of renowned mixing gear such as the LA2A, 1176, 1073 EQs, 4000-series channel strips, along with creative effects like tape saturation and amp distortion.
This plug-in enhances the workflow by displaying all parameters in a single window, which negates the need to open and close different plug-in windows to adjust effects. It also provides a Dry/Wet slider on every effect to control the application level. Users can save their own presets or use the ones that come with MixBox.
MixBox extends its functionality by allowing users to control the gain and dry/wet mix for each effect, similar to real hardware. It also supports a side-chain input to trigger effects like compression from another signal, which can help tighten up drums and basses or create pumping effects on the master bus.
In its standalone mode, MixBox can be used to mix live with up to 8 racks of 8 effects each. Any audio source can be connected to the computer and MixBox can be used as a mixer. All 8 racks can be controlled from one window, with the ability to load presets, add or remove effects, activate side-chain, and adjust input/output channels and gain for each rack.
Given the comprehensive feature set and the current discount, this is an opportune time for those interested to consider adding MixBox to their audio production toolkit. Expires September 27th.
