1. Oxford Inflator V3

By: Sonnox
 
Oxford Inflator V3
 

A unique and powerful Plug-In to increase loudness, without sacrificing sonic quality or dynamic range.

Add power and presence to your mix without the pumping of compression, or use on individual channels to bring them forward and add weight. Perfect to help vocals cut through the mix.

When driven harder, Inflator delivers tube-like musical warmth and provides the ‘sonic glue’ you need to gel your mix together!

The Inflator is a unique process that can provide an increase in the apparent loudness of almost any programme, without obvious loss of quality or audible reduction of dynamic range, yet avoiding damaging increases in the peak level of the signal.

The inflator process can also bring power, presence and warmth to programme material and even provide headroom overload margin above digital maximum with a subtlety and musical character reminiscent of tube systems.

Use the Inflator to produce louder mixes than you thought possible without overloads or compression pumping, or use it to add natural warmth and character to acoustic or jazz mixes.

MAIN FEATURES

  • Fully 64-bit compliant
  • Adds presence and tube-like warmth
  • Increases perceived loudness of any material
  • Provides virtual headroom above digital maximum
  • Direct and band-split modes

2. Oxford DeBuzzer

Oxford DeBuzzer
 

Fast and effective removal of buzz, hum, whine and whistles.

Use the intuitive display to help isolate the fundamental frequency – it’ll constantly give you feedback on the top contenders – or define it manually with the help of a tone generator.

Don’t worry if the fundamental wanders, the default Auto Tracking Mode will follow it in real time. The harmonics of your problem fundamental frequency will also be tracked.

All that remains is to engage the default comb filter or the optional parametric EQ, and then fine-tune the content that’s removed using DIFF auditioning.

Features

  • Ultra high resolution detection and removal of unwanted: buzz, hum, whine and whistles
  • Separate Detect and Remove Sections for intuitive workflow 
  • Very accurate setting of fundamental over 3 frequency ranges 
  • Tracking Mode to follow fundamental and its harmonics
  • Comb filter for tight removal over many harmonics
  • Parametric EQ for more musical removal over fewer harmonics
  • Audition removed buzz for confident fine-tuning

3. VoxDoubler

By: Sonnox
 
VoxDoubler
 

VoxDoubler is presented as two separate Plug-Ins that focus on the two most common vocal doubling workflows.

Vocal performances lie at the very heart of a song. Doubling vocals is a really effective way of adding more contrast, drama and presence to the story of your song.

It’s therefore hard to imagine much of recorded popular music without the special quality that double-tracked vocals bring to a mix, either used over an entire track or just to help a chorus or key lyric connect with a listener.

MAIN FEATURES

  • Generate believable double and triple vocal tracks to create width, depth or add thickness
  • Humanise section to adjust the Timing and Pitch of the doubles relative to the original vocal
  • Depth control to push the new doubled voices deeper into the mix
  • Tone control to prevent sibilant doubles from becoming distracting, or to brighten those that are too muddy
  • Track/Aux mode allows you to apply the effect in place or, for more advanced control, mix it in parallel on an aux return
  • A more cost-effective alternative, both in terms of initial outlay and speed of use, than more complex and manual processes
  • Engineered for vocals, but try it on instruments too!
  • Hallmark Sonnox audio precision, transparency and reliability

Why VoxDoubler?

You want believable and natural sounding doubles but don’t have access to your vocalist, or the time required to:

  • Record extra takes in order to comp doubles
  • Transfer a lead take into an external editor, make copies of it and then manipulate the pitch and timing of them
  • Maybe you like the speed of using a classic stereo imager, chorus or harmonising effect, but aren’t so happy with the rather unnatural artefacts that can often occur?

Enter VoxDoubler. Bespoke designed to give you the best of these two approaches; ease of use, real-time processing and results that sound as lifelike as if the doubled parts were actually multi-tracked.

Saving you time, money and maintaining your creative flow.

Widen

Generates two new mono voices and pans them to the left and right of the original vocal.

Great for:
Widening a mono performance, ranging from subtle enhancement to a stack of hard-panned voices

Or why not try:
Manually processing the new doubled voices separately, then mixing them back in parallel with the original

Thicken

Generates a new stereo doubled voice and overlaps it with the original vocal.

Great for thickening a:

  • Mono performance, emulating the effect of singing the same part twice
  • Stereo group of voices by doubling each voice

4. Oxford Dynamic EQ

Oxford Dynamic EQ
 

The Ultimate 5-Band Dynamic EQ

Have you tried to control boomy or harsh frequencies using a traditional static EQ but found you compromised the integrity of the original recording? Then found that writing automation lost you precious time and sounded unnatural? Perhaps you’ve heard that a multiband compressor is the answer but it left you scratching your head?

Then the Oxford Dynamic EQ is the tool you need, providing just the required amount of processing when you need it and takes little time to set up.

5 bands of the ultra-musical Type-3 EQ curve can be overlapped to bring unparalleled control and characteristic Sonnox transparency to your single sources, instrument groups and 2-bus alike.

The Dynamic EQ introduces unique features such as the option to engage the effect by onset (transient) detection – very useful when working with drums and percussion. Additionally, mid-side processing can be used to enhance a vocal without affecting side-channel balance or to open up a mix by focusing low end energy in the centre.

This highly-tweakable space-carving capabilities of the Dynamic EQ will be a welcome addition to your mixing arsenal.

MAIN FEATURES

  • 5 bands of the Oxford Type-3 EQ curve which offer proportional-Q, often considered the most musical EQ curve-type
  • All bands can overlap fluidly without the static phase distortion or low-frequency artefacts associated with multiband compressors
  • Each band can process and/or detect from mono, stereo, mid or side channels
  • Flexible per-band internal/external side chain controls
  • A clear and informative GUI simplifies the often-complex workflows associated with multiband dynamic plug-ins
  • Flexible upwards/downwards compression and upwards/downwards expansion
  • Engage the effect either by setting a level threshold or by using the unique onset detection feature for very precise transient processing

5. Oxford DeClicker

Oxford DeClicker
 

Oxford DeClicker

Accurately and transparently remove pops, clicks and crackle using three discrete sections. Each has a threshold and sensitivity control to define the number of events that are detected and removed. The unique Events Graph shows the level and duration of each pop, click and crackle as it’s detected in three separate colour-coded groups. 

Sometimes there will be events detected that represent audio we want to keep rather than remove. So we built the Exclude Box to further refine the number of repaired events, and also Dialogue Mode for independent control over speech in programme.

MAIN FEATURES

  • Three Dedicated Sections: DePop, DeClick and DeCrackle 

  • Graphic Feedback of the Energy/Duration of Detected Events 

  • Excitation Displays to Help Accurately Set Thresholds 

  • Exclude Box to Select Events that Shouldn’t be Repaired 

  • Dialogue Mode: Independent Settings when Speech is Detected

Three Audition Modes:  

  • Listen only to removed events 
  • Full processed signal
  • Dialogue Mode side-chain

6. Oxford DeNoiser

By: Sonnox
 
Oxford DeNoiser
 

The DeNoiser Plug-In with its integrated de-hisser delivers surgical broadband noise reduction in real-time.

The process is based on a continual analysis of the input signal in order to build a noise profile. Alternatively, use Freeze Mode to sample a section of audio containing just target noise.

Simply define the threshold below which noise is removed and use the Reduction slider to taste.

We understand the delicate balance between removing noise and retaining the character of your original recording, so have added a Warmth control to return some richness and added a DIFF function to audition only the removed noise.

MAIN FEATURES

  • Separate DeHiss, Detect & Remove Sections for intuitive use 
  • High-resolution display of input signal & its noise profile 
  • Frequency Bias Curve to fine-tune noise threshold & reduction 
  • Mid-Side mode to de-noise only side content 
  • Warmth control for sweetening after noise removal 
  • Make-up gain for true A/B comparisons 

7. Oxford Drum Gate

Oxford Drum Gate
 

Have you become frustrated with the results of unreliable drum gating using traditional tools; chatter, misdetection, choked or lost ghost notes? Are you tired of overly complex and manual workflows?

Then meet the new Oxford Drum Gate; it’s swift and logical workflow solves these problems and delivers the fastest, most musical and transparent results available. At the heart of the Drum Gate is intelligent drum-hit detection. First, the Plug-In detects them all with tailor-made transient detection. Then, you simply decide which ones to keep.

Detection

Need to reduce spill on a snare track in a dynamic mix of backbeats, ghost notes, and cross stick hits? No problem! Just click the Snare button.

Decay

Tired of fighting abrupt and un-musical gating? Do you want to keep the natural ring of toms and remove the spill around them? Easy! Use Drum Gate’s adaptive Decay section to quickly focus on the resonance of each tom, in real-time, according to the velocity of each detected hit.

Leveller

Wish you could improve the consistency of the drummer’s performance? Of course you do! Conform louder main hits and softer background articulations to two separately controlled target level ranges in the Leveller section.

MIDI

Want to augment/replace individual drums with samples and confidently retain the dynamics from the original performance? Piece of cake! It’s delivered by Drum Gate’s hit detection and MIDI triggering functionality.

MAIN FEATURES

  • Precise transient detection and intelligent drum-type matching to effortlessly separate the hits you want to keep from the spill you don’t.
  • Create custom drum profiles to isolate unusual drum types or fix the occasional kick, snare, or tom mismatch.
  • Decay curve which adapts to the velocity of each drum hit, giving you consistent spill reduction on dynamic performances.
  • Spectral decay editor lets you preserve the resonance, ring, or rattle of each drum hit while quickly clamping down on the spill.
  • The leveller’s dual target and amount controls let you improve level consistency without losing the contrast between loud hits and soft ghost notes.
  • Real-time MIDI output and MIDI file capture, for accurately triggering drum samples.

8. Oxford TransMod

Oxford TransMod
 

Modify the transients in your tracks by either increasing or reducing their attacks. Sounds simple, though our 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.

MAIN FEATURES

  • Harden or soften attacks and transients 
  • Radical or subtle changes – with up to 24db of boost/cut
  • Add harmonic enrichment for extra loudness, presence & punch allowing peaks up to 6db above digital max without clipping 
  • Increase or reduce the effects of room ambience
  • Achieve a fabulous gated overdriven drum kit in seconds
