Then the Oxford Dynamic EQ is the tool you need, providing just the required amount of processing when you need it and takes little time to set up. 5 bands of the ultra-musical Type-3 EQ curve can be overlapped to bring unparalleled control and characteristic Sonnox transparency to your single sources, instrument groups and 2-bus alike.

The Dynamic EQ introduces unique features such as the option to engage the effect by onset (transient) detection – very useful when working with drums and percussion. Additionally, mid-side processing can be used to enhance a vocal without affecting side-channel balance or to open up a mix by focusing low end energy in the centre.

This highly-tweakable space-carving capabilities of the Dynamic EQ will be a welcome addition to your mixing arsenal.

5 bands of the Oxford Type-3 EQ curve which offer proportional-Q, often considered the most musical EQ curve-type
All bands can overlap fluidly without the static phase distortion or low frequency artefacts associated with multiband compressors
Each band can process and/or detect from mono, stereo, mid or side channels
A clear and informative GUI simplifies the often-complex workflows associated with multiband dynamic plug-ins
Flexible upwards/downwards compression and upwards/downwards expansion
Engage the effect either by setting a level threshold or by using the unique onset detection feature for very precise transient processing"

Looks expensive compared to Fab Filer Pro Q 2 in the cart at $157.

Anyhow, let's see how it works.

Funny how the gui looks a good bit like the FabFilter eq. Sonnox stuff has always been on the pricey side so not surprised at the difference (not to mention it's a new product).

What I don't understand and makes me wonder - if AD is showing a Mac gui then why the five little circles in the upper left when traditionally there's only three for OSX?
