In this premium video tutorial, Julian Rodgers examines the common practice of using two different compressors on a single source with each doing something different and considers how much of an effect the order of these compressors has on the effect.
They both do similar jobs. What is the difference and which should you use?
In this free tutorial Production Expert team member Julian Rodgers explores Sonnox Oxford Dynamics’ Classic mode, which some people say makes it sound like a DBX 160. While that isn’t strictly true, this general purpose mode doesn’t sound a million miles away from that, the big difference is that it can sound like pretty much any other compressor too.
In this free tutorial Production Expert team member Julian Rodgers uses a combination of Sonnox Oxford plug-ins to add polish to a vocal, including the excellent and often overlooked Oxford Reverb.
From 27th February 2019 our friends at Sonnox are introducing iLok Cloud authorisation. For new users this makes it easy and free to try demos and for existing customers these iLok licenses will be additional to their existing licences giving these users a second authorisation!
I’m a big fan of the Sonnox Dynamic EQ. it’s flexible, sounds great and the user interface just lets you get on with the job. Part of the reason why I like it so much is because dynamic EQ makes much more sense to me than multiband compression, which is limited and in most cases is difficult to use. Here are three things about the Sonnox Dynamic Eq which I think make it one of the best out there.
As a bit of fun on the team we’ve challenged one another to this; you get to keep all the plugins supplied with you DAW but then you only get to keep one more plugin. Julian Rodgers makes his choice.
DeEsser plug-ins are undoubtably essential tools to have on standby in today’s modern vocal production workflows. Every major DAW ships with at least one stock DeEsser plug-in, however, there are a number of amazing third-party DeEsser alternatives that are well worth checking out if you are plan to either swap out or upgrade your current stock DeEsser of choice for something a bit more special… or specialised…
In this list, we highlight several powerful audio restoration software packages, some stand-alone, some plug-ins and some that offer both options that you should try in your next mix.

Our friends at Sonnox have announced the release of the VoxDoubler, the first plug-In from their new Toolbox range.
An important difference between the attitudes people seem to have to software vs hardware is that while we demand endless flexibility from plug-ins we are often happy to have a piece of hardware which does one thing well, sits on the mix bus and gets used on everything. Are there any plugins which are like this? Character plug-ins which make everything sound better all the time? I think there are. Here are five plug-ins which I think come close to being that elusive “betterizer”.
Julian chooses the Sonnox Dynamic EQ as his favourite new plug-in of 2017. Great sound, flexible in use and a really streamlined interface which lets you get on with the job in hand with the minimum of fuss. See Julian's video review to see why he likes it so much.

To further illustrate the effect of Q/Gain dependency, this tutorial, originally published in October 2017 has been updated with audio examples using extracts from 'Middle Of The Outer Circle" from EAS Studios.
Some EQ designs are better regarded in some applications over others because of the way they feel in use and this is, at least in part due to the Q/gain dependency of the equaliser's design.In this free video tutorial, Pro Tools Expert team member Julian Rodgers investigates the differences between the four EQ types available in the native version of the Sonnox Oxford EQ.

Our friends at Sonnox have just announced the release of their latest plug-in, Oxford Dynamic EQ. Sonnox state that the Oxford Dynamic EQ could be the answer to common mixing problems such as controlling boomy or harsh frequencies without compromising the integrity of original recordings or saving time in situations where you may have had to write EQ automation to achieve the same effect.
