Go beyond traditional multiband compression.

The Sonnox Oxford Dynamic EQ plug-in for UAD hardware and Apollo interfaces gives you high-level control over the frequency content of your audio, helping you tackle the most demanding production challenges whether you’re mixing or mastering.

The first dynamic EQ on the UAD platform, the Sonnox Oxford Dynamic EQ plug-in is an excellent alternative to multiband compression, allowing you to sculpt and shape your sources with unending precision.

Now You Can:

Apply EQ that’s triggered by the level of particular frequencies or by onset (transient) detection

Use dynamic tone shaping to tame boomy or harsh vocals, guitars, cymbals, and more

Process your audio using up to five fluidly overlapping frequency bands

Easily execute complex EQ tasks with the intuitive user interface

Dynamic Performance

Dynamic Performance

The Oxford Dynamic EQ plug-in gives you the best of both worlds — the precision of a static EQ, and the responsiveness and flexibility of a multiband processor. It also lets you dynamically shape the tone of your music without any of the phase artifacts or latency issues common to multiband compressors.

Fully Overlapping Bands

Fully Overlapping Bands

Unlike multiband compressors, which use crossovers to rigidly split up the frequency spectrum, the Oxford Dynamic EQ’s five frequency bands can overlap fluidly, giving you greater flexibility for both character modification and corrective processing.

Onset Detection

Onset Detection

The Oxford Dynamic EQ plug-in’s Onset Detection lets you set the EQ processing to be triggered by transients. This provides you with a new level of precision for boosting or cutting percussive sources and even for controlling vocal sibilance.

Total Control

Total Control

The Oxford Dynamic EQ offers multiple ways to refine and target its processing, giving you unprecedented flexibility. For each band you can choose stereo, mono, or mid-side operation, frequency-specific or onset detection or both, upward or downward compression or expansion, and independently adjustable side chain filters.

Ease of Use

Ease of Use

Despite all its power and tweakability, the Oxford Dynamic EQ is as easy to dial in as a traditional EQ plug-in, and its user interface is logical, intuitive, and non-intimidating, whether you’re an experienced pro or a studio novice.

Features

Powerful dynamic EQ with signature Oxford professional-level transparency and control

5 bands of 'R3 Type 3' proportional-Q dynamic equalization with optional shelf type

All bands can overlap fluidly and process and/or detect from mono, stereo, mid, or side channels

Flexible per-band side chain controls

Allows up/down compression and up/down expansion

Optional onset detection for very precise transient processing

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?

perfect

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. =)

External sidechain

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!

Sonnox

Like all the other UAD products, it's well worth the investment.
The Oxford dynamic Eq works effeciently on all my tracks and mixes.
Great tool!

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.

Fast super

Klingt top und ist schön übersichtlich.
ABER: Unter Verwendung mit dem Apollo Twin ist es nicht möglich, die Frequenzkurve einzuschalten! So wird das EQing zum Blindflug und das Plugin dementsprechend unbrauchbar. Sehr, sehr schade!
Und leider immer noch keine Alternative oder ein Update in Sicht.
