Sonnox Oxford EQ Plugin
Sonnox's Flagship EQ
Classic 5-band parametric EQ with variable-slope HP/LP filters
A great sounding EQ is essential to any mix. Which EQ to use can vary depending on artistic requirement, but quality and flexibility are both critical at all times. What if there was one Plug-In with four distinct EQ types - from surgical to musical - with a track record of being used to mix the biggest hits, films, and live shows?
Enter Sonnox's flagship Oxford EQ, a Plug-In that traces its heritage to the original EQ section on the acclaimed Sony OXF-R3 digital console. Hallmark sonic transparency meets a simple and interactive interface - resulting in quick, confident and great sounding mix decisions.
The Oxford EQ and Filters plug-in draws on the considerable experience in professional audio and studio systems earned by the Oxford Team, the team that designed the OXF-R3 console system. The Oxford EQ plug-in is based on the OXF-R3 EQ section and provides a truly professional EQ processor for Pro Tools, VST and Audio Units users.
The Oxford EQ is a fully functional 5-band application with selectable shelf settings on LF and HF sections. Additionally, separate variable slope low pass and high pass filters are provided. The EQ also features four different selectable EQ types that cover most of the EQ styles currently popular amongst professional users, including some legacy styles, which are renowned for their artistic capability. The use of novel coefficient generation and intelligent processing design provides unparalleled performance that surpasses analogue EQ in both sound quality and artistic freedom.
An optional 5th EQ type is available for Pro Tools HD and HDX users - an exact emulation of the highly regarded GML-8200 EQ hardware unit.
Originally designed in collaboration with George Massenburg for the OXF-R3 console, the GML Option faithfully reproduces all the control ranges and responses of the classic analogue original -even delivering centre frequencies up to 26KHz to provide a smooth airy top-end to your tracks.
Imagine your Pro Tools HD session loaded with fully endorsed GML-8200 EQ emulations, with that sound, multiple instantiations, recall and complete automation.
The Oxford Range
Oxford Plug-Ins are used in an extraordinary range of live and recorded applications throughout the music, broadcast, film and games sectors. Even scientific and forensics projects have benefitted from the sonic surgery characteristic of an Oxford product.
Rather than releasing a vast number of Plug-Ins Sonnox instead concentrated on doing a few things really well. Staple, everyday tools that any engineer can reach for with confidence, sure in the knowledge that using each one's intuitive GUI will result in quick, confident and great sounding mix decisions.
