The heck with C6 - this could do in HOFA IQ-EQ (and I have both with HOFA #1) for me.

$230 once you are logged in. I wonder what the features will be? Either way, I hope Sonnox have an attractive upgrade path or else I'll likely stick like I did before.

Have you tried to control boomy or harsh frequencies using a traditional static EQ but found you compromised the integrity of the original recording? Then found that writing automation lost you precious time and sounded unnatural? Perhaps you’ve heard that a multiband compressor is the answer but it left you scratching your head?

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?

Looks like no upgrade/cross grade for Sonnox EQ owners :roll eyes:

That's Sonnox's preset management system. It's a Menu, undo-redo, and then + and - to increment.
