AES144 | Meet the Sponsors! Sonnox

AES144 | Meet the Sponsors! Sonnox

 Sonnox is the leading designer of innovative, high quality, award-winning audio processing plug-ins for professional audio engineers. Oxford Plug-Ins are used in an extraordinary range of audio applications including mixing for music production, live sound, broadcast, TV & Film, and even scientific and forensics projects. 

 
The Sonnox design team traces its heritage back to the 1980's, to the development of the legendary Oxford OXF-R3 digital mixing console. With a base price of $1 million, the OXF-R3 was installed in major recording studios worldwide, and became widely accepted as the first ‘musical’ sounding digital console.
 
As music production began shifting towards digital workstations, the console inspired a series of unique software developments starting with the Oxford EQ and Dynamics plug-ins.
 
The expanding family of Oxford Plug-Ins quickly acquired a reputation for excellence among leading engineers worldwide; a reputation that was earned through a no-compromise attitude to audio performance and a desire to push the boundaries with intuitive and novel user interfaces.
 
Sonnox continues to develop unique, high-quality plug-ins for audio production, embracing new technology and formats with partners such as Avid, Universal Audio and Fraunhofer.

AES144 | Meet the Sponsors! Mathew Lane

Mathew Lane audiotools are innovative new solutions, created when no other hardware or software could be found suitable for the task.

The DrMS spatial processor is Mathew Lane's first product, already widely accepted by audio professionals as a unique plugin. It's being used by top producers and engineers on songs by well known artists such as Black Eyed Peas, Coldplay and many others. Legendary mix engineer Dave Pensado is a fan and has been showing the use of DrMS on several of his Pensado's Place Into The Lair videos.

DrMS is a unique spatial processor, available as AAX/RTAS/AU/VST plugin, with a wide range of applications for mixing, mastering and post production - going from simple MS (Mid-Side) encoding/decoding, over stereo field width and depth enhancement, to fixing mono compatibility issues and more.

DrMS now also has little brother called StereoDelta. And even more, Mathew Lane has recently gone hardware by introducing the OnTheMoon SPACECRAFT, a unique analog spatial processor based on his spatialising technology.
