Sonnox Essential
Sonnox Oxford Essential Native is a bundle of plug-ins that I am currently running in Pro Tools LE.  The bundle comes with four different plug-ins including EQ, dynamics, reverb, and superesser (which is a desser).  Each of these plug-ins has a top notch tone quality and a user friendly interface that is not only easy to use but also versatile.  My favorite of the bunch is probably the EQ, but all of the plug-ins are definitely helpful and great to have around.  I run the plug-ins on a Mac Book Pro that has a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 4 GB of RAM that runs with a Digi 002R audio interface.  I've never had any problems running any of these plug-ins within this configuration and as long as you have a system that can run basic plug-ins, I don't think you'll have much of a problem running these either.  While you can buy all of these plug-ins on their own, you really do get a huge discount if you buy them all within this bundle.  All four of the plug-ins in this bundle are absolutely top notch as these are some of the best plug-ins out there in my opinion.  The EQ is super clean and has enough bands that you can use it on just about anything.  The dynamics plug-in can be used as a compressor, limiter, gate, or expander and the reverb is also extremely versatile.  I believe that even if you just had this plug-in bundle to work with, that you would be able to get some good mixes as these can really carry you a long way.  This is definitely a great bargain and is one of the best plug-in bundles out there in my opinion.  The Sonnox Oxford Essential Native bundle is the perfect bundle for home studio owners.

Sonnox Essential
The installation is done it without problems?

Is the cross and banner for the installation, you must register on the site Ilok, if not already doing, and take the steps to follow, very very long for my taste.

The general configuration is easy?

Yes really, if you have ever used a compressor / gate / limiter!

Have you experienced any incompatibilities?

No no, the plugins are compatible with ALL formats (VST / RTAS / AU)


What is the configuration of your computer?

Mac Pro dual core 2.66GHz 8 GB RAM + Leopard + HDD 10000trs for Macosx and MOTU 24io on LOGIC PRO 9

This software + hardware is stable?

Yes quite, but the plugins are pretty greedy

What performance?

I'm not the best, but it will come, but it manages the dynamics of "A to Z".


For how long have you been using it?

3 weeks

Did you try many other models before getting this one?

Yes, and still use today, SSL, and neve at DSU, they are all very different, and works on everything, but I wanted plugins very surgical, and stay music, and it the case.

What thing do you like most/least about it?

It is a true Swiss Army knife, very comprehensive (Dynamic / EQ / Goddess / Reverb ...), plenty to do

What is your opinion about the value for the price?

This is the black point of the beast, paid dearly, and we did not have the right to a DVD and a proper packaging, I had right of the license on a piece of paper, and Sort this out to me for download on the site, RIDICULOUS! I had this impression of being a cash cow, because in addition to that, you have to buy a key Ilok !!!!!! These are honest people who pay their license toast, as always !!!!!

Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...

Yes, despite the black point quoted above, but in the Powercore version, which I intend to do soon, to use the resources of the mac for Logic.

Quality level, they are incredible, do not hesitate!, It goes very well with the duende and uad
