Sonnox have released their first Oxford plug-in in over a year and it seems like it’s been worth the wait. Envolution is a frequency-dependent envelope shaper with separate transient and sustain sections to radically re-shape the envelope of your instruments or audio.

Use a broader tilt mode or the more parametric-style focus mode to choose which frequencies are processed.

Insert on a track, bus or even master output to add presence/distance to drums, piano, guitar and any other percussive content. Boost sustain to make the ambience around a recording bloom, or cut it for quick and precise gating.

We love the more creative and extreme side of the plug-in too; like using the DIFF button to generate negative ratio compression effects!



Frequency dependent control of Transients & Sustain

Tilt/parametric targeting of frequencies to process

DIFF button to solo the effect

Use in parallel without phase cancellation

Warmth control for:

– Harmonic saturation/tone shaping- Prevention of excessive output levels

Many great presets to get you started

A few quotes from those who have tried it:
