Post production super bundle for TDM systems.
Sonnox Post is an uncompromising plug-in solution for audio post-production. It includes the award-winning Sonnox Restore suite which features the DeClicker, DeBuzzer and DeNoiser audio restoration plug-ins, along with the classic Oxford EQ and Dynamics algorithms from the OXF-R3 digital console. Also included are the versatile Oxford Reverb, Limiter and SuprEsser dynamic EQ - making Sonnox Post the ultimate post-production super bundle.
With the plug-ins' detailed visual feedback, Sonnox Post will help get the job done faster!
The Oxford DeClicker has three main sections: DePop, DeClick and DeCrackle. These three sections deal with events that are up to 10ms, 3ms and 0.4ms in duration, respectively. Each of these sections has a threshold and sensitivity control, and an excitation profile which shows the residual signal left after harmonic content is removed. The excitation profile represents how much the signal deviates from the predicted signal.
The DeBuzzer has three modes, Fast, Auto and Freeze. By default the plug-in assumes Auto mode, continuously hunting either side of the nominal frequency for a peak profile. Once the lock strength rises to be above a certain level, the plug-in automatically sets the nominal frequency to the frequency of the peak found. If the hum is wandering in frequency, the detector will follow. Auto Mode is suitable for tracking a weak, slowly wandering fundamental and operates over all three frequency bands. Fast tracking mode allows the removal filters to automatically follow a quickly wandering fundamental.
The Oxford DeNoiser removes wide-band noise from audio material using a variety of sophisticated techniques. The key to good de-noising lies in helping the user produce pleasing and accurate results, rather than encouraging the over-aggressive use of controls. The Oxford DeNoiser is based around the concept of a 'noise profile'. The noise profile is used to gate-out components of the frequency spectrum that are below it, and keep the components that are above it. There are several methods to arrive at an appropriate noise floor.
The renowned Oxford EQ is based on the original EQ section of the Sony OXF-R3 large format digital mixing console. It is a 5-band EQ with selectable shelf settings on LF and HF sections. Additionally, separate variable slope low pass and high pass filters are provided. The Oxford EQ also features four different EQ curves that cover a broad array of styles, including some legacy styles which are renowned for their artistic capability. The use of novel coefficient generation and intelligent processing design provides unparalleled performance that surpasses analogue EQ in both sound quality and artistic freedom. The Oxford EQ truly is four equalisers in one plug-in and will provide all the EQ you’ll ever need!
The Sonnox Oxford Dynamics plug-in is modeled on the extremely flexible and capable unit used in the Sony OXF-R3 professional mixing console. Resulting from many years research into professional dynamics applications, it offers separate Compress, Limit, Expand, Gate and side chain EQ functions, with full independent control of all parameters. Features such as selectable time constant curves and variable soft compress functions allow the user to confidently tackle all common uses of compression, from subtle unobtrusive level control and mastering functions to the production of great artistic effects. The use of a feed-forward architecture with logarithmic side chain processing, making use of look-ahead techniques, ensures exemplary sonic characteristics and dynamic accuracy, with an artistic capability simply unavailable from other single units, analogue or digital. This highly sophisticated and professional product has the power and flexibility to obviate the need for many of the separate applications most users keep for specific uses.
The Sonnox Oxford Limiter has been developed from decades of professional audio experience to provide a very high degree of quality and facility in program loudness control and limiting functions. By employing highly accurate logarithmic side chain processing, along with innovative adaptive timing functionality using look-ahead signal acquisition, the limiter provides exemplary performance, whether one is seeking general transparent level control, program loudness maximization or heavily applied artistic sound effects.
The Oxford SuprEsser is both a very highly-featured professional De-Esser and a Dynamic EQ. There is a simple mode for quick fixes, but also an advanced mode for increased functionality and fine-tuning. The combination of an intuitive FFT display and three listen modes enables the user to easily see and hear exactly where the problem frequencies are, allowing the rapid reduction or removal of the offending audio. As well as being able to trigger the full band compression, only the offending frequencies can be carefully carved out. Since the SuprEsser can operate at all frequencies, ‘plosives’ and other annoyances can also be removed effortlessly, making it more than a simple De-Esser. Additional features include Automatic Level Tracking, Linear Phase Filtering and a Wet/Dry blend control for final balancing.
The Oxford Reverb plug-in is a highly flexible stereo reverberation generator, designed to complement existing Sonnox Oxford applications in providing the user with the highest technical and sonic performance coupled with artistic and creative facility. As well as providing stunning presets, the user has full control over all of its many parameters, including a very comprehensive early reflections section, and integrated 5-band EQ. The Sonnox Oxford Reverb allows the powerful facility to create virtual spaces freely, depending on artistic need, ranging from dry reflection ambiences, room and hall simulations, sound effects, all the way to wide open reverberant spaces with a very large range of possible texture and spatial character.
NOTE: Sonnox plug-ins require a 2nd Generation iLok for authorization.
