Sonnox Oxford TransMod V3
Harden or soften attacks and transients
Modify the transients in your tracks by either increasing or reducing their attacks. Bring transient events in the programme forward, or push them to the background, such that the attack of instruments can be accentuated or softened depending on the settings provided.
Modify the transients in your tracks by either increasing or reducing their attacks. Sounds simple, though Sonnox's bespoke adaptive process working in the background is anything but. Fortunately the interface keeps things straightforward, with two main controls quickly allowing you to bring 'soggy' drums to life or give more punch to a bass.
But TransMod is just as relevant to any electronic sound as it is to acoustic ones - pulling transients forward in your mix, or pushing them further back by making the ambience around them more evident. And all this is accomplished without the tonal changes associated with compression.
The Sonnox Oxford TransMod is an application that allows the dynamic level of signals to be modified, over time, by transients in the programme material. The effect is to bring transient events in the programme forward, or push them to the background, such that the attack of instruments can be accentuated or softened depending on the settings provided.
The application was developed to address a common situation where there is a need to selectively tighten up percussive instruments or soften the unwanted percussive effects of acoustic musical instruments. Such effects are easily achieved with the TransMod because its purpose designed adaptive processing acts on differential information in the programme, so that the overall long-term programme level is minimally affected, and sensitivity to control parameters is drastically reduced.
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 weâ€™ve 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.
