Sonnox is excited to announce the launch of its first new plug-in since the Company became independent in April 2007. The Oxford SuprEsser joins the existing range of highly regarded audio processing plug-ins in the Sonnox line-up.
The Sonnox Oxford SuprEsser is both a very highly-featured professional De-Esser and a Dynamic EQ at the same time. There is a basic mode for quick fixes, but also an advanced mode for increased functionality and fine-tuning. The combination of an intuitive FFT display and three listen modes enables the user to easily see and hear exactly where the problem frequencies are, allowing the rapid reduction or removal of the offending audio. Rather than simply allowing a frequency to trigger full-band compression, only the offending frequencies are carefully carved out leaving the rest of the mix untouched.
Since the SuprEsser can operate at all frequencies, ‘plosives’ and other annoyances can also be removed effortlessly, making it more than a simple De-Esser. Additional features include Automatic Level Tracking, Linear Phase Filtering and a Wet/Dry blend control for final balancing.
“The R&D and market research process for our next plug-in convinced us that there is room for a truly professional De-Esser,” says Sonnox Sales & Marketing Manager, Nathan Eames, “so it was an obvious move to fill this void with a fully spec’d, high-quality plug-in, which has actually evolved in the development process to become a whole lot more than a simple De-Esser. The Dynamic EQ section, for example, is extremely versatile and I can see it being used in a creative capacity as well as its more obvious corrective usage.”
Sonnox will be unveiling its new Oxford SuprEsser plug-in at the Winter NAMM 2008 show in Anaheim, on January 17-20. Stand 201-18, Room 201, 2nd Floor. The company will also be giving away a Native Oxford 6-Pack bundle, (worth $1,250) each day at the show, and attendees will be given a voucher entitling them to a special NAMM deal.
