Sonnox® Oxford Envolution
Sonnox Oxford Envolution
Sound Design Essential
OK - So it's not an 'essential' as I lasted so long without it - but having acquired it I don't know how I did without it for so long. It makes explosive sounds completely controllable and endlessly adaptable - from the unlikeliest of sources. If this sounds a little cryptic it's because I don't have room to list all its possible uses!
Desert Island Plugin
THIS is the best sounding and most comprehensive TD plug out there. Forget everything else. This one plug can do so much to everything from your kick and snare to toms, bass, synth, vocals ARGHH everything!! And it is super easy to use. It just works.
Endless Creativity For Drums And Other Instruments.
I've got UAD Sonnox EQ and Inflator before but I haven't got any transient modulator from any brands before. So having this is an addition than a normal transient modulator. If you also haven't got any transient modulator in your plugin library, I highly recommend it to catch up with this new audio technology :)
Amazing make drums and hihats sounds like heaven, the best transient out there for sure
this on really saved a mix of mine. i was looking for something to get rid of a lot of cymbal bleed and this really helped out. use overtime now on drums. a must have
Cannot believe my ears....
Previously unusable drums and synths now suddenly have the punch they needed all along. This is a God-send. Great job guys! :D
Excellent On-Every-Mix Tool !
Use it to clean samples, make room between dif elements by controlling attack and sustain with frequency flexibility! A must have and own for clean & punchy mixes! Very useful tool for drums, guitars, pianos, you name it! Even on reverbs to control the tail of a certain frequency - for example tight lows and open "sustainy" tops! Great use for removing unwanted sustain on drum samples, or use it before an 1176 on a parallel compression send to add amazing snap to drums! Endless uses! Go nuts! Great tool UA!
Even On A master Buss
I threw this in the master buss just to see want subtle transients I could affect in the mix... It works there too!!!
Very usefull for critical material
I like every thing from Sonnox (Sony Oxford) very much.
The Sonnox Oxford Envolution Plug-In is the most advanced Plug-In in these category.
Really like on Drum tracks and so to give BD, Toms and Snares more Attack and so.
Re Animator II
Transferred Black Face ADAT recordings of direct guitars, digital modelling amps of the late 90's, electronic drums... Great performances and bring out the detail/articulation, adding dimension that was never heard before. Giving a real shot at a great mix!!!
So many great uses including salvaging location recording. A great and flexible tool from subtle to extreme.
Best Transient plugin out there!
Spent a morning with the top 3 transient plugins put there. Tested the Oxford extensively against the SPL & NI Transient Master. The Oxford seems to give more punch to the dynamics that the other 2, and allows more control too. The NI Transient master was my 2nd choice, with the SPL coming third. With that said, because I already own the NI version, I couldn't make the case to buy this at full retail but will wait for a sale.
Order of favorites:
1. Oxford Inflator
2. NI transient Master
3. SPL Transient Designer
Perfect transient designer
Amazing transient designer for most everything. Specially what I like is the EQ and the programming. Is the hiding weapon for accuracy and precise shape, sustain, thickens and body ... Drums, ambients, OH..and more.
Great on Drums!!!
A transient designer with bells on!!!
Brilliant on all kit mics but especially useful on room/ambient mics....can change the size of space of the room with one plugin!!!
To my knowledge, it's simply the most precise and versatile transient shaper out there. And it does it in a very transparent way, as compare to multi band shaper. The only transient shaper i would recommend.
Even the dullest Kickdrum is now in use
If you like and use the Transient designer but in those rare occasions where the Transient Designer does not do it for you, this Envolution will make your world go sunny.
I complete tool for envelopes on just about everything.
A mixengineers must have.
