Sonnox Weekend Workshop

MusicTech has teamed up with Sonnox to offer you the chance to bag yourself some new plug-ins. Our Weekend Workshop teaches you how to use Sonnox’s Oxford Drum Gate and by sharing your results in our Creator Community Facebook Group, you could win a plug-in bundle worth over £900.

We’ve extended the deadline to midnight Sunday 5 July, so make sure you enter!

This Weekend Workshop is an exploration of creative gating techniques using Oxford Drum Gate. Check out the workshop here, submit your results to the MusicTech Creator Community Facebook Group and you’ll then be entered into the competition.

The prizes

The overall winner will receive the Sonnox Elite bundle and Oxford Drum Gate collectively worth over £900. The Elite bundle is comprised of Sonnox’s legendary, industry-standard Oxford plug-ins, including Oxford EQ, Dynamics, TransMod, Reverb, Inflator, Limiter and SuprEsser.

Five runners-up will receive a copy of the Oxford Drum Gate plug-in which they will have the opportunity to use in the Workshop, on a 15-day trial. We praised the Oxford Drum gate in our review, granting it an MT Excellence Award. You can read the full review here.
