Sonnox’s range of innovative and award-winning plugins are used in a wide range of audio applications including mixing, mastering, live sound, broadcast, TV and film, and even scientific and forensics projects.

Their legendary Oxford OXF-R3 digital mixing console became widely accepted as the first ‘musical’ sounding digital console, as the Sonnox team ported the revered DSP algorithms from the console to develop Oxford EQ and Dynamics plugins.

Since then, Sonnox have continued to build on the Sony Oxford heritage as well as adding a range of Toolbox plugins designed for speed and simplicity.

“It is an absolute pleasure to welcome Rod and his entire team to the Focusrite Group,” said Focusrite Group CEO Tim Carroll.

“Sonnox products are globally recognised as best in class, making them a natural fit in our stable, and we are all excited about the opportunities and possibilities that lie ahead.”

Rod Densham, Founder and Managing Director of Sonnox added: “We believe that by joining Focusrite with their scale, industry expertise, and range of premium brands, we can continue to grow and deliver innovation and excellence to audio hobbyists and professionals alike. 

“Focusrite has a proven track record of achieving this in our industry, and we are very excited to become part of their Group.”
