What is the copy protection used for the new releases?

All new Sonnox plug-ins (“G5”) will require second generation iLok (“iLok 2”) from Pace. This includes the AAX DSP plug-ins and Native products that include AAX Native.

 

I want to buy a Sonnox Elite AAX DSP bundle. Are all of the included plug-ins available for AAX DSP?

Oxford R3 EQ, Dynamics, Inflator, TransMod, Reverb and Limiter are available for AAX DSP. The Oxford SuprEsser is supplied as an AAX Native plug-in.

The new Oxford SuprEsser DS plug-in is available as an AAX DSP plug-in, for Pro Tools HDX systems and Avid S3L consoles. The licence also includes the native Oxford SuprEsser as part of the package.

 

Are user settings compatible between TDM and AAX?

Avid's advice is 'as long as you have the AAX or RTAS versions installed of the plug-ins used in the session, the processing will just translate over to the new DSP. If an AAX plug-in doesn't exist, the Pro Tools|HDX system will use the RTAS version (Pro Tools 10 only)'.
