Sonnox Ltd. is the leading designer of innovative and high quality audio processing plug-ins for professional audio engineers. The Oxford Plug-ins are used in an extraordinary range of audio applications including mixing for music production, live sound, broadcast, TV and feature film audio post production, and even scientific and forensics projects. The Sonnox design team can trace its heritage back more than twenty years to the development of the legendary Oxford OXF-R3 recording console, which was quickly adopted by major recording studios worldwide. With the music production process shifting to digital workstations, the OXF-R3 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 in intuitive and novel user interfaces. The Sonnox design team has forged a select group of powerful plug-in tools, many of which are award-winning. These include: The SuprEsser, a highly efficient de-esser and dynamic EQ; The Restore Suite for sophisticated audio restoration; and most recently, the revolutionary Fraunhofer Pro-Codec, a real-time plug-in for auditioning and encoding audio to multiple formats including iTunes.
