Sonnox® Oxford EQ
Sonnox® Oxford EQ
I try to set the same settings in UA plugin, and in original Sonnox Eq (from Elite bundle). I record the result, and then revert the phase. The result is - ABSOLUTE SILENCE!!
It means, that it's absolutely the same code!!
Not necessary to buy this plug if you have original from Sonnox.
The only thing, that UA Eq looks a little bit better :))
This is where I would usually get all excited about the latest addition to the UAD-2 Plug-In family. Universal Audio has been incredibly consistent with mesmerizing my mixing ears, and I would have to say that I am very proud to have quite a nice and hefty collection of UAD-2 Plug-Ins cozily nestled in my Meter & Control Panel.
This time however, I did not feel tempted to hit the "BUY" button after downloading V6.3 and giving the Sonnox Oxford EQ Plug-In the 14-Day Trial. It's been 7 days and I would have to sadly report that I cannot share that same excitement I once experienced. I am aware of the number of new features on board, however at the end of the day, it's just another EQ.
How about an old valve mic preamp plug-in next time?
If you think you might like to purchase this plug-in, save yourself both money and regret by buying the Cambridge EQ instead. If you already own the Cambridge EQ, be glad that you do, and ignore this odd misstep in a long line of great products by Universal Audio.
I agree. The native Sonnox EQ sounds as good, if not better. And for around $500 you get the EQ, Dynamics, Limiter, etc. UA charges $300 for the EQ alone?!
I am not sure why UA would want to release this plugin. If it was a free [or inexpensive] upgrade from the Cambridge, it would make sense.
I was expecting UA's next EQ release to be API. Maybe in the future. But please don't charge $300 for one EQ!
Maybe it's inherited from TC Electronic PowerCore?
Having been a long time Sony Oxford Console owner as well as long time user of the Oxford Plug in, it can't be said enough how much of a fantastic eq this is and has always been. There's a special something that can be surgical and broad with the same instance, and the filters are as good as it gets. This is a must own plug in.
guys i would just like to say i have all your plug ins bar the brainworx and this one. you see i have the native versions. imho i think you should be doing rew emulations instead of plugs which are already out there.. i would love to see a new version of nigel and a version of mic modular. sorry for the neg guys but its how i genuinly feel.. still i love you guys and the work you do.
