Sonnox Essential : moosers's user review
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.
