Sonnox announces that its Oxford plug-ins are compatible with Avid’s new Pro Tools|HDX system, which was launched at the 131st AES Convention in New York last month.
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 or Pro Tools HD 10 software.
“We’re extremely pleased to be an early adopter of the Pro Tools|HDX platform,” says Sonnox Managing Director Rod Densham. “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.”
“Sonnox consistently sets the pace for superior-sounding, innovative processing for Pro Tools, and we are thrilled to see their portfolio coming to AAX,” says 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.”
Sonnox states that the Oxford EQ and Oxford Inflator are the first in a line of many AAX plug-ins from Sonnox that will be available when Pro Tools|HDX ships.
