Anaheim, CA (January 18, 2008)–Sonnox has announced the imminent launch of its first new plug-in since the company became independent in April 2007. The Oxford SuprEsser joins the existing range of audio processing plug-ins in the Sonnox lineup.
The Sonnox Oxford SuprEsser is both a professional De-Esser and a dynamic EQ. There is a simple mode for quick fixes and an advanced mode for increased functionality and fine-tuning. As well as being able to trigger full band compression, offending frequencies can be carefully carved out. Since the SuprEsser can operate at all frequencies, “plosives” and other annoyances can also be removed. Additional features include Automatic Level Tracking, Linear Phase Filtering and a Wet/Dry blend control for final balancing.
“The R&D and market-research process for our next plug-in convinced us that there is room for a truly professional De-Esser,” says Sonnox sales and marketing manager, Nathan Eames, “so it was an obvious move to fill this void with a fully spec’d, high-quality plug-in, which has actually evolved in the development process to become a whole lot more than a simple De-Esser. The Advanced mode, for example, which is essentially a linear phase dynamic EQ, is extremely versatile–I can see it being used in a creative capacity as well as its more obvious corrective usage.”
Sonnox is previewing the Oxford SuprEsser plug-in at the Winter NAMM Show at Booth 201-18 (Room 201) on the Anaheim Convention Center’s second floor. The company will award four Native Oxford 6-Pack bundles in a prize drawing for show attendees, and special “NAMM Deal” vouchers are available at the booth. The SuprEsser is expected to ship in March 2008.
