Sonnox Announces Compatibility With Avid’s New Pro Tools HDX System

OXFORD, UK: Over the past four years, software developer Sonnox has consistently produced innovative plug-ins to meet the needs of music producers, engineers, TV/radio broadcast and feature film soundmixers. This year, the Sonnox Fraunhofer Pro-Codec (developed in collaboration with the original mp3 inventor) was introduced. Designed to provide real-time auditioning of audio codecs within a DAW environment, the Pro-Codec is considered by many engineers to be a truly game-changing plug-in.

Sonnox has now revealed yet another important advance – compatibility of Oxford plug-ins with Avid’s new Pro Tools|HDX system launched at the AES Show this week. In making the announcement Sonnox Managing Director Rod Densham remarked, “We’re extremely pleased to be an early adopter of the Pro Tools|HDX platform. The new AAX format will undoubtedly become an established plug-in standard, just as TDM has been. In recent months we have doubled the size of our development team to meet increased demand, and we are working overtime to complete the transition to AAX as soon as possible.”

Avid’s new AAX (Avid Audio eXtension) advanced plug-in format, offers improved workflows and sound parity when sharing sessions between DSP-accelerated and native-based Pro Tools systems. The format comes in two versions: AAX DSP plug-ins compatible exclusively with Pro Tools|HDX (TDM is not supported in Pro Tools|HDX); And, AAX Native plug-ins, compatible with any system running Pro Tools/Pro Tools HD 10 software.

“Sonnox consistently sets the pace for superior-sounding, innovative processing for Pro Tools, and we are thrilled to see their portfolio coming to AAX,” comments Ed Gray, Director, Partnering Programs at Avid. “Sonnox plug-ins running on a Pro Tools|HDX system will provide a winning combination for the next generation of audio professionals. We can’t wait to see what Sonnox brings to our users next.”

The highly acclaimed Oxford EQ and Oxford Inflator are the first in a line of many AAX plug-ins from Sonnox. They will be available when Pro Tools|HDX ships.
