Ox­ford Dy­namic EQ £189

Future Music - - ROUNDUP -

Vol­ume-sen­si­tive tone shap­ing is an ex­tremely use­ful tech­nique. Tam­ing harsh fre­quen­cies from sounds with fixed, ‘tra­di­tional’ EQs is one thing, but hav­ing EQ bands which work harder as the level in­creases of­ten pro­vides more flex­i­bil­ity. The Ox­ford Dy­namic EQ of­fers five over­lap­ping bands of pro­cess­ing, let­ting you carry out any­thing from single-band de-es­s­ing to multi­band pro­cess­ing at the mas­ter­ing stage. Pre­ci­sion is as­sured thanks to switch­able au­dio de­tec­tion op­tions. ‘Peak’ re­sponds to over­all peak sig­nal level, whereas ‘On­set’ re­acts to more sud­den sig­nal spikes and ag­gres­sive tran­sients. In ‘Peak’ mode, you have a choice of ‘Above’ and ‘Below’ modes, which pro­vide ‘con­ven­tional’ (down­wards com­pres­sion/up­ward ex­pan­sion) and ‘in­verted’ (the op­po­site) pro­cess­ing. Stretch­ing flex­i­bil­ity even fur­ther, each band can op­er­ate in mono, stereo or mid/side modes too. www.uau­dio.com VERDICT 9.1
