Sonnox® Oxford Dynamic EQ
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
Take a Listen
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
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.
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.
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
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.

I'm new to UA but have been doing home recording for 3 decades (Cakewalk/Sonar). I've learned UA is big into recreating vintage high-end studio gear but I've never even been in a high-end studio so most of the hardware is foreign to me so I have nothing to compare it to. BUT when demoing many of the plugs I was very bummed to learn that most of the old hardware had little visual feedback, you had to use your ears - not with this one, at least not so much. This gives me that FabFilter Pro Q2 look and features plus adds compression to selected frequency ranges - brilliant! I'm glad I waited to invest in the world of UA Apollo as I see many of the newer plugs are more visual which takes advantage of the computer age. Well done and bring us more!
One suggestion - it would be nice to have the option of different sizes of the on-screen plugs, sometimes they are so small I can barely read the little text near the knobs, etc. Also, it would be nice to have the option of going deep into the plugs to see more full sized controls like the Waves HReveb which has a button for an expanded view. The bourgeoisie want More buttons!
Best De-Esser I have used.
The review title says it all! On top of that ypu can use this plug for 10 000 other situations too!
Dynamic EQ offloaded to DSP
Happy to have a dynamic EQ that doesn't eat up my computers processing power
