Sonnox has introduced Oxford Envolution, a frequency-dependent envelope shaping plug-in designed to radically modify the sound of individual tracks, busses and even master outputs.
According to Sonnox, Envolution boasts comprehensive and independent control of transients and sustain, with ‘Tilt’ or ‘Focus’ controls to choose where in the frequency spectrum the effect is applied. The company says this enables complete manipulation of the audio’s envelope to produce creative and even extreme results.
Transients can be boosted to add presence and punch, or reduced to create perspective, while the sustain section can easily make the ambience around a recording bloom or be cut back for quick and precise gating.
Sonnox senior sales and marketing manager, Nathan Eames, commented: “With such a wide range of potential users in so many audio sectors, from post, music to live sound, we’re excited about the creative possibilities that Envolution will bring. In keeping with all Sonnox designs, we’ve kept three core values in mind throughout the development process of Envolution – ease of use, an intuitive interface and most importantly – a great sound!”
Envolution is available in Native format – AAX Native, Audio Units and VST – at a retail price of $270 and AAX DSP format at an RRP of $435.
