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

Guter dynamischer EQ - ext. Sidechain fehlt leider

Dieser dynamischer EQ arbeitet und klingt gut. Benutze ihn vor allem für Vocals und Subgruppen.
Bitte fügen Sie die ext. Sidechain Funktion hinzu! -> diese fehlt leider

It is okay

It does what it is supposed to do. Not a great sounding EQ by any means, but it helps taming some frequencies here and there. This is the only plugin that consistently made LUNA crash, but I expect that to be fixed. Try the demo first. Nor my finest purchase in the UAD store.

Nice dynamic EQ

Good dynamic EQ, good precision and transparent, but the i prefer a Fabfilter for utilisation on the other hand The sound is better !

Great plugin, but go for native

This is a really clean dynamic EQ and definitely not just for surgical removals! Feel free to explore presets and use it as an enhancer. The Mid/Side is killer. However, I'd recommend buying native because UAD platform doesn't support Side Chain and there's little reason tracking with this.

No external sidechain ???

No external sidechain 2021...??? What a joke... Love the EQ but it's unusable in a lot of situations with the lack of this feature.

The best sounding DynEQ

This guy is my startup on every vocal chain, so every comp after is stressless. Hope UA adds soon the sidechain option.

Super tools for your vocal strip

Use the Sonnox Oxford Dynamic EQ as my go-to plugin for vocals. Great to use as a super solid foundation for any additional plug-ins - highly recommended!

No external sidechain function since 14 Aug, 2017 ???

Here is a quote from Sonnox website from 14 Aug, 2017:

"If you've enjoyed using the Oxford Dynamic EQ for Native and are considering purchasing it for UAD, it's important to note that the UAD version of the Oxford Dynamic EQ does not include external sidechain support."

Why is there no info about this issue on the product page here?
Why is there no progress with it still?

I just bought it and got very disappointed, external sidechain is crucial for my work.

Smooth Operator

I have multiple Dynamic Eq plug-ins as my “go to” and never needed, nor looked for adding another one to my tools. I was recently working on a very challenging mix. Non of my dynamic eq plugins could fix it to a satisfactory result. As a last resort I downloaded the “UA Sonnox Oxford Dynamic Eq” for a trial and to my surprise I was able to resolve it so quick with an amazing smooth sounding finish. I just had to purchase it. It’s now my only “go to” dynamic eq plugin.

I love the smoothness in the frequencies, however, i do not like the functionality of the knobs.. comparison to Fab, I prefer Sonnox, but with Fab's knobs..
