The Sonnox Oxford SuprEsser plug-in gives you the functionality of multiple plug-ins in one! Featuring a de-esser, compressor, and dynamic EQ, the Oxford SuprEsser provides different modes for both quick sonic fixes and more detailed fine tuning of your tracks. You get three listen modes and a practical FET display to be able to find problem frequencies aurally as well as visually. This plug-in is incredibly effective at pulling out only the frequencies that offend, and the addition of Automatic Level Tracking, Wet/Dry blend, and linear phase filtering make the Sonnox Oxford SuprEsser an essential tool in your processing arsenal!Sonnox Oxford SuprEsser De-esser/Dynamic EQ at a Glance:
- Two essential processors in one must-have plug-in
- The only de-esser you'll ever need
- Intuitive display lets you make critical decisions
- Enhanced compressor lets you smooth out your vocals
- Very easy to use
The Oxford SuprEsser is both a very highly featured professional de-esser and a dynamic EQ. There is a simple mode for quick fixes but also an advanced mode for increased functionality and fine tuning. The combination of an intuitive FFT display and three listen modes enable the user to easily see and hear exactly where the problem frequencies are, allowing the rapid reduction or removal of the offending audio. As well as being able to trigger the full-band compression, only the offending frequencies can be carefully carved out. Since the SuprEsser can operate at all frequencies, plosives and other annoyances can also be removed effortlessly, making it more than a simple de-esser.The only de-esser you'll ever need
As a de-esser, the Oxford SuprEsser is designed for the treatment of sibilance and fricatives in vocals and the treatment of unwanted whistles and spirant artifacts associated with wind instruments. However, it can equally be applied to removing low-end plosives and thuds from over-close vocal work, without affecting components nearby in the frequency spectrum, keeping the low-end in tact. For the most natural sounding results, the SuprEsser de-esses only the frequency band you set, so you won't end up with an over-de-essed lisp-like voice with all the top end gone!Intuitive display lets you make critical decisions
Detailed visual feedback is provided, thanks to the highly intuitive graphical display, allowing quick identification of the frequencies that need treatment and where to set the threshold. The threshold level and peak hold levels of the user-definable band are shown on the graph, alongside the FFT display of the narrow band signal, which includes retention of the peak level and the frequency containing the most energy.Enhanced compressor lets you smooth out your vocals
At the heart of the Oxford SuprEsser is an enhanced version of the compressor section of the Oxford Dynamics plug-in, which is renowned amongst professional users for delivering precise and transparent control of peaks. Around this is a pair of crossover filters to make the compressor react only to the defined frequency band. These linear phase filters are modelled on the filters from the Oxford EQ, making the SuprEsser useful for precise mastering work as well as mixing work. Three listen modes allow the user to listen to the mix, the output of the bandpass filter (inside), or the output of the band-reject filter (outside).Very easy to use
Careful thought has been put into making the Oxford SuprEsser extremely easy and quick to use. Once the frequency band has been defined, simply lower the threshold fader until the gain reduction meter starts to kick in. The plug-in then automatically tracks the general signal level, and the threshold follows accordingly so that it gives the same relative amount of gain reduction as the signal level rises or falls. This is perfect for vocals where, for example, a vocalist is louder in the chorus than the verse, but you want to apply the same relative amount of de-essing, and not over de-ess in the chorus. With its Auto Level Tracking mode, the SuprEsser does all the hard work for you.
