The much acclaimed plug-in suite for Digidesign entry system 04/12/03
Sony Oxford - nice box of tricks
In a move designed to bring the power and flexibility of Oxford Plug-ins
within the reach of home studio-based producers, engineers and artists, Sony
Oxford now offers a full line of plug-ins designed to work with Pro Tools LE
systems. In addition to introducing the full range of individual Plug-Ins,
EQ, Dynamics, Inflator and Transient Modulator, the LE versions feature an
extremely cost-effective “Bundle” combining three primary tools: EQ, Dynamic
and Inflator Plug-Ins at an attractive price.
“Sony Oxford Plug-ins have earned a reputation for exceptional performance
and sound quality,” said John Richards, Senior Manager at Sony Oxford. “The
Pro Tools LE versions now provide the same extraordinary mixing flexibility
and sonic advantages to a much wider segment of the pro audio market.
Additionally, for the first time we are offering a bundle comprised of EQ,
Inflator and Dynamics Plug-ins for the LE user,” Richards concludes.
Sony Oxford Plug-Ins for Pro Tools LE include:
Based on the exact same novel processing algorithms as Sony’s highly
acclaimed OXF-R3 flagship record/mix console. It includes a 5 Band
Equaliser, with additional variable slope HP and LP filters. Control
coefficients are calculated in real time, allowing quantization-free and
noise-free operation. Four EQ characteristic types are included. It sounds
and feels like an analogue EQ combined with the ‘pin-point’ accuracy of
Also modelled using the algorithms from the extremely flexible dynamics
processor used in the OXF-R3. It features Mono and Stereo Channel Dynamics
with separately controlled sections for Compressor, Limiter, Expander, Gate,
and 2 Band Side-Chain EQ. A ‘Warmth’ feature allows variable harmonic
enhancement, providing extra loudness, presence and ‘punch.’
Significantly increases the loudness of virtually any material regardless
of prior processing, such as compression and limiting, without going ‘over’.
The Inflator is a real-time process which adds power, presence and warmth
without those pumping effects associated with compressors and limiters,
where time constants are involved. Enhance a full programme mix or
individual instruments with its tube reminiscent character.
Oxford Transient Modulator
A powerful new resource for bringing transient
events in the audio program forward, or pushing them into the background,
enabling the attacks of instruments to be dramatically accentuated or
softened depending on settings. Radically modifies the dynamics of
individual instruments or use it to revitalize whole mixes without negative
impact on original artistic intent.
Oxford LE Bundle Combines the Oxford EQ, Dynamics and Inflator at an
attractive package price of three plug-ins for less than the price of two.
