Sonnox® Oxford Dynamic EQ
Sonnox Oxford Dynamic EQ
Vocal Tracking Chain Complete!
Bought this based on a few UAD user reviews and glad I did. I'm using for tracking vocals just to dynamically tame the lows and highs. I find being able to visually see it work while tracking has been a confidence game changer for me.
Great sounding Equalizer, I do however think Uad need to put the sidechain option like the Native version asap. its such a shame it doesnt have this option. The Native version is pretty CPU hungry but with AMD coming in with insane processing power for affordable prices I won’t be surprised if products like this gets absolute when not on par with the native version. There simply is no reason to buy this if you can get the full option version with side chain and resizable plugin window. Never the less great plugin from sonnox.
Come on where is the native sidechaining? Urgh I’m so disappointed. Please include it.
comp. eq. If these two things don't solve it...?
It works smoothly without being rough, so you can work while maintaining the original track tone.
When the desired thing is not made well by using comp or eq
Using Oxford Dynamic EQ, how is this?
i a have VST Dyn-EQ for sidechain work in my DAW...this one i wanted for real time tracking through my Apollo Twin, and it's perfect for that, ( for De-Essing, and as a dynamic gain stage )....
what i was getting at, with the Ducking Compressor Idea, is; i don't want coloration in ducking side-chain compression...so the Obvious Solution, for ducking, is a Purely Digital Side Chain Ducking Compressor...
just Side-Chain Source Routing, With 3 Knobs < and that's it....the 3 knobs are Freq, Q, and Level, ( just like one band of a fully parametric )...so anyway; the side-chain frequencies then would be simply subtracted from the subject, there by doing the ducking by carving their own custom frequency hole into the subject material..
maybe that idea would be best implemented as a LUNA plugin, or part of the LUNA console...
i can build something like that, for myself, in reaktor; just haven't gotten around to it yet..
does what it does good.
i will put up a review on this latter...
i just wanted to get the digital frequency carving sidechain idea across to UA.
What a EQ
This eq is smooth like butter . And makes anything your working on from vocals to instruments sound better. Could use a side chain , that would be my only issue .
speaking of side chain compressors !!! ( the idea )
the purely digital approach would be the key there, but unlike this unit as well...
or why no one has thought to put a filter, and level, on an alternate track side chain, and just digitally subtract those frequencies, in the adjusted amount, from the subject ???
get it ???
Love it...but where's the side chain?
Very natural and easy to manipulate each band. However not having an external sidechain option is a major flaw. Therefore I give it 3 stars as opposed to 5. UA, please update. =)
I would love to use this plugin because all Sonnox plugins sound awesome but unfortunately, with the UA-version you can´t pick an external source for the sidechain which I use very often. I hope you guys are working on this!
Can't believe how clean it is
I demoed this when I ran out of ideas for suppressing room resonance, and wow, Sonnox's dynamic EQ works so cleanly! Very satisfied with the artifact-less result. Definitely added to my arsenal.
Works great as a gate for eliminating background noise in a noisy room in realtime
I demoed this and set it up for voiceover work where the fan on my CPU was making me crazy. Really easy to setup a threshold in the high frequencies so that only the vocal comes through. Now that being said.. I am sad that this doesn't have sidechain. If it had sidechain it could replace the Fab Pro-Q 3 in a lot (but not all) instances and I would give it 5 stars. I pray your engineers are hard at work on sidechain for this and LUNA.
The most gentle and natural dynamic
I do lots of audio-post production where I use constantly dynamic EQ like Izotope Neutron EQ to control the resonance without changing too much the timbre. sonnox Dynamic EQ is so gentle and transparent! Maybe the smoothest one of all. It’s great addiction, Even if it has only 5 bands, it’s worth it at 50% it will be always on my chain alongside of the Izotope one!
Like all the other UAD products, it's well worth the investment.
The Oxford dynamic Eq works effeciently on all my tracks and mixes.
This is a must. Come on.....
Will y’all please add sidechain???
Please add sidechain support to this plugin
Making buses bounce
this is a great plugin. Only missing the sidechain external source. Please
Great dynamic EQ
This is a great dynamic EQ plugin. Of course it is a shame that there is no external side-chain support and therefore its use is limited on the UAD platform, but it offers great control and sound quality if the use case does not require an external key signal. Hoping that they will deliver external side-chain support one day.
Excellent comme tout UAD
