Sony Oxford Dynamics
« on: January 21, 2015, 06:50:09 PM »
So now that I'm getting my Mix3 system up and running and loading it up with tons of plugins, most of which I'll probably never use ::)... I started thinking about some plugs that I really like... one of my 'go to' plugs is the Sony Oxford Dynamics  but I was thinking that there wouldn't be a OS 9 version. Did a quick search and found this SOS link that mentions PT TDM/ RTAS OS 9! I'd LOVE to have this on my PT system!

Anyhoo... Has anyone here used this in PT 5.1.3/ OS 9??

I have the full version with no need for iLok. Don't know if it's the last OS9 version though.

WOW Knezzen!!! Now you've got me all excited!!! And NO ilok!!!


ugly lookin isnt it? :D


As I said, that's one of my 'go to' plugs so it's not ugly at ALL to me, but rather BEAUTIFUL!!!! ;D

I'm just thrilled to know that it exists for OS 9 without Ilok. If that should happen to show up here I'd be jumping for joy!! ;)

BTW... I think Knezzen is by FAR the MOST handsome member here!!!!!!! ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Hi, guys! My first post here!
Glad this site exists!! I am using os9 for my Mix+ system.
Anyway, back to topic:
I have Sonnox dynamics, eq, inflator working fine in demo mode for 2 weeks. Then they stop working. I just load into OSX and run Ilok reset soft. Then restart in OS9 - next 2 weeks of heaven for free :) Same process for Waves Shell Dae.

Sure.
My system is dual boot.
I have these Sonnox plugs in os9. Fully functional demo mode. When I start them, there is this window and I press Try. The windows shows number of days left for trial period.
In Osx i have this Ilok reset utility.
When time comes i boot into Osx, start disc utility, select os9 partition and close startup disk without restarting.
Then launch Ilok reset, click Manual Reset and system restarts into os9 with renewed Ilok date.

this sounds right. but, everyone, it is not guaranteed to work when you have newer pace products for OSX (which you bought) on the same machine. so use this method on OS9-audio-only machines.

Correct, I don't use OSX for anything but This procedure. So I don't know how it impacts plugs in OSX. If any other info needed from me, let me know.

@Sanek:

Is OSX in same drive and partition than OS9?

I have a panther Install on one drive and OS9 on another.

I guess your method involves having both on same drive and partition.

Example: To have on a drive called MacDrive 2 system folders, one for OS9 and another for X.

If this reset method works, finally, we could have the same plugs on OS9 and OSX and do a real benchmark between PT5LE and PT6LE. I mean, the Digirack II, Waves 4 and Oxford. Enough tools to make anything

I guess you have a bad memory then. I uploaded ALL my plugins to ADrive. DieHard didn't want to post the whole plugin pack, so that's why it has been some time I guess.

Pretty much all the plugins in the TDM downloads are from my plugin pack.

Folks, We still haven't publish that Sony/Sonnox demos for OS9

Here you can't find them http://www.sonnoxplugins.com/pub/plugins/support/demos.php
Quote
We offer free, fully-functional, 15-day demo versions of Sonnox Oxford plug-ins.

Please note, all Sonnox plug-ins (including demo versions) rely on using an iLok smartkey for authorisation.

Native 64-bit Audio Units, VST and AAX DSP and AAX Native versions of Sonnox plug-ins require iLok2.

More information on iLok can be found at :

www.ilok.com


Click on the 'More information' link below to obtain your free demo.

These are for UAD-2 http://www.uaudio.com/store/mastering/oxford-inflator.html. No OS9 happiness...  :(

These ones from wayback machine (internet archive) don't work:
http://web.archive.org/web/20070429175457/http://www.sonnoxplugins.com/pub/plugins/support/demos-le.htm

Please, it is just a demo, not your credit card security numbers... Can we share?

Only ProTools Plugins I ever saw uploaded were from Mix Mod and I posted them... so maybe you deleted them before I saw them ?

You may as well delete it.  As stated about a hundred times before... each plugin should be in a folder, with a text file and a screen shot, if you are too busy to do that, then delete it, I am sure the other PT users will understand  ;)

200 plugins zipped together with no explanation is just a meaningless archive

So it's better to delete several hundreds of plugins than posting them in a bunch and help people in their search? Makes a lot of sense ;)

I'll get to the job of sorting them then... Damn. I need to build myself an other PT rig to do this. I wont mess with the production rig.

EDIT: Just looked though the folders in my plugin pack real quick.
There are 440 TDM & RTAS plugins in there. Will take some time to get them sorted. Just so you know.

Don't no if this helps - I use Sony Oxford EQ and dynamics on my mix plus 5.1.3 and on my OS 9 only drive I run a software called Filebuddy - you basically delete 3 hidden files using this software, restart and the demo period starts over.

I don't have the installer but if you're interested I can try and find it.

agreed... if this was the amount of effort all of us were investing in this site..
the site would not exist.. and it would be totally useless.. and non-educational.
this goes inline with what i said to IIO when he posted a million things in the vault..
one or two well explained things far outvalue 1000 unexplained things.

Knez u were the one who said over a year ago that u were going to sort them all immaculately
+ post them all.. and then Syntho ended up doing the work. (somehow? i dont even know how that happened)

i was only making the point that doing things 1 thing at a time slowly over time.. its alot better then trying to upload 1000 things at once.. because we are all focused on other things aswell.. and can only chew one biteful at a time.

he is right it also works manually. it is different files on every computer. i dont inow by heart but i think its all in root/hfsextenttables/. check this with resedit or any other app which lets you browse invisible folders, then just watch out what the installer adds to it.
(and again: dont delete anything inside this folder of which you dont know where it belongs to in case you also have also bought products which use the same method.)

Thanks ferridirection (and welcome by the way) for your pure OS9 method to reset iLok plugs.

Thanks Sanek for your OSX method.

We got the OS, the machine and the reseter. What am I missing? Oh, yeah.

Will anyone of you be so nice to send us the demo? This is like having the keys of a car, all the fuel desired and no car.

Sonnox Ltd. has evolved out of Sony Oxford, which in turn traces its history back to a group of five dedicated audio professionals that first worked together in the early 1980s. These engineers spent many years together designing analogue and digital consoles for Solid State Logic, and subsequently left to start a new Company in 1988 that was called Oxford Digital. Over the following few years the team slowly expanded, until in 1993 it became Sony Oxford. The major product design from Sony Oxford was the OXF-R3 Digital Mixing Console, commonly called 'the Oxford Console'. This high end digital audio console was conceived by Oxford Digital in the late 1980s and productised for commercial release by Sony in the mid 1990s.

Quote
All hardware and software, all audio i/o, all system architecture and cosmetic design, and all audio algorithms and signal flow were designed by the engineers in Oxford, including an audio DSP chip (at that time it was impossible to buy DSP technology with enough power). Even a bespoke microcode compiler and router were developed from scratch. Although software maintenance of the OXF-R3 continued for some years, the core activities of the group diversified. Sony Oxford became the world leader for development of 1-bit audio processing (DSD, the basis for SACD), and additionally a variety of R&D contracts were undertaken on behalf of various groups in Sony. As technology became cheaper with increasing power, a group formed in Sony Oxford that began to focus on how best to re-purpose the Oxford technologies into audio workstations. This group became a development partner with DigiDesign and began work to create the Oxford EQ for Pro Tools. At the same time, work was started on the infrastructure for an e-commerce scheme that would become instrumental for sales and registration of the new software products. In September 2002 the CD boxed versions of the OXF-R3 EQ started selling around the world. This was followed by a port of the EQ to TC Works PowerCore, a version of the OXF-R3 Dynamics section, and then two newer plug-ins (the Inflator and the TransMod), which didn't feature prominently in the Oxford console and needed significant re-working for the plug-ins market.These early products were followed with a Reverb and a Limiter, and the platform base was broadened to include native hosts such as VST and Audio Units. By 2006 this plug-ins software initiative was operating as an almost self-contained business unit within Sony.

Quote
To stimulate the business and allow it to thrive, the business unit was spun out of Sony in April 2007 and became a new and independent Company called Sonnox Ltd. Looking to the future, Sonnox is committed to expanding its plug-ins business with frequent introduction of new products and support for a wide range of platforms.

Shit, the Sonnox os9.rar files appears as 2 folders, the 3 files, a finder.dat file and a RESOURCE.FRK folder with the 3 files.  How to recover this?

It is supposed to be the demo installer or the actual plug to place on DAE/Plugins?

just place them in DAE / plugins folder.

I will try to explain better. The RAR file is unrared with unRARX on 10.6.8. That gives me a folder with name Sonnox_Os9 that contains 4 files called SonyOxfordDynamics_OS9, SonyOxfordEQ_OS9 ,SonyOxfordInflator_OS9 and FINDER.DAT. Also a folder called RESOURCE.FRK that contains 3 files SONYOX'1, SONYOX'2 and SONYOX'3.

I think the resources are broken, because they are in a different folder. I can't expand the files in other way. Stuffit in OS9 makes the same thing.

Sanek, can you install  FileType and tell us what type and creator they have in your DAE/Plugins to work?

Someone has recovered resources in RESOURCE.FRK to the files in OS9?

All I found is a UNIX terminal app without GUI https://www.safaribooksonline.com/library/view/mac-os-x/0596009437/re80.html

If your 3 files are mean to be placed on DAE/Plug folder, they are the plugs themselves.

The best solution to transfer those files is to make a .sit file of everyone, and that file encode to .BIN

Moderators have included those methods on some post, but I cant find them.

.RAR and .ZIP are standard today, but they are hard to manage on OS9.

I tried both MacRAR posted on http://macos9lives.com/smforum/index.php?topic=2214.0 and noon works for me...

Placed the files on plugs folder, protools load them when opening but they do not appear in plugins list or Audiosuite...

Maybe is a trouble related to LE systems.

By the way, the files from the rar have surname OS9 and the sit files got OSX surname

i am not sure if inflator existed at all in OS9. the two others do. the reverb was for PTHD only, and the restoration was TDM only. after restoration everything was OSX only.

Thanks, MacTron!

They haven't that resource fork trouble!

I have tested them 3 on Protools LE 5.2.1, and the 3 are seen as Plugs for PT (It says me that is a 15 days demo on all plugs load at start) but only Oxford EQ&Filters seem to be RTAS compatible, at least with Audiomedia III. I will test on Digi001 soon. I hope someone could test it in Protools Free just for the sake of Free users
I have also checked AudioSuite, and only EQ&Filters appear.

Should I delete preferences or something to try if they "appear" in plug list? I never needed to make that to make plugs compatible run.

It is strange, because, normally, when I load a TDM only plug the machine froze s.  And I have restart the machine and take the TDM plug outside the plug's folder to run PT LE. But these 2 do not froze the machine, but simply, aren't available.

Shame Inflator! Shame Dynamics! You should be RTAS!  >:(

Probably all TDM users are LOL XD   ;D  ;D  ;D

Here are 2 methods AFAIK:

So ...

Filebuddy 7.6 on Mac OS 9.2.2
files are :

TheVolumesettingsfolder
Desktop DB
Desktop DF

after this you got 14 days to compress and equalize properly
Sure.
My system is dual boot.
I have these Sonnox plugs in os9. Fully functional demo mode. When I start them, there is this window and I press Try. The windows shows number of days left for trial period.
In Osx i have this Ilok reset utility.
When time comes i boot into Osx, start disc utility, select os9 partition and close startup disk without restarting.
Then launch Ilok reset, click Manual Reset and system restarts into os9 with renewed Ilok date.

I got to say that I tested OSX version and get outdated in only one day, after using the ilok reseter tool on Panther.

Can Greg's browser see hidden folders?

Did you tried the hidden files method?

What was the OS9 method you mention as non working, MacTron?

The deleting hidden files method doesn't work.

The reinstalling DAE folder and iLok extensions method doesn't work.

The erase the full HD partition and reinstall everything from start doesn't work.

May be the re-format/re-partition the full HD may work, but I haven't tried it yet ... LOL

The erase the full HD method always worked for me on Panther. Maybe if this don't worked for you is because it writes something in the ApplePartitionMap itself.

I guess our best method is to build our own instant DAW with all plugs but these iloked demos. Restore the instant DAW and install the demos. It is not the worst workflow every 15 days. In fact, Protools 6 OSX users have to do it every 15 days or use ilok resseters.

There are 2 ilok resseters Panther compatible AFAIK. I have to test the second one.

 
What is the path of these 3 hidden files?

he is right it also works manually. it is different files on every computer. i dont inow by heart but i think its all in root/hfsextenttables/. check this with resedit or any other app which lets you browse invisible folders, then just watch out what the installer adds to it.
(and again: dont delete anything inside this folder of which you dont know where it belongs to in case you also have also bought products which use the same method.)

I have no product bought but the Digi interfaces (001 and AM3) and the Logic XSKey. I doubt changing root/hfsextanttables could damage anything in the hardware side.

I got no licenses of software but the Protools LE ones.

Restore the instant DAW and install the demos.


the other option is not to use these few plug-ins affected by the "not available problem".

or buy them... as for waves 4, i think it should be possible to buy a license today for around USD 100 for the whole bundle.

there are plug-ins like antares filter where the demo period is only 7 days, do you really want to reformat your harddrive every week?

i am not talking about hardware, i was talking about other demos and/or licenses you may have bought. there are several folders there for different products.

We start from the premise than we want to use SonyEQ&Filters for more than 14 days.  ;D

How to keep using those demos without having to format the partition/drive every 14 days?

Restore the instant DAW and install the demos.


or buy them... as for waves 4, i think it should be possible to buy a license today for around USD 100 for the whole bundle.


I would love to have a market were Waves 4 would cost 100 USD. I see more like 1000$  ;D

They have declared them obsoletes or abandonware.

I am reading betwen the  lines that every file in

Filebuddy 7.6 on Mac OS 9.2.2
files are :

TheVolumesettingsfolder
Desktop DB
Desktop DF

after this you got 14 days to compress and equalize properly

Are iloked products that maybe are working and I didn't realize they were working.

i am not talking about hardware, i was talking about other demos and/or licenses you may have bought. there are several folders there for different products.

So you sugest to be careful with the content of these and delete them one by one having a backup elsewhere just in case other plug already authored ask for auth. , don't you?

If it allows me to use in Protools Waves 4 and Oxford EQ on OS9, I wouldn't mind if iMovie 2.0.2 ask me for the serial number each time it prompts, for example. What are your concerns about that, IIO? Yours answers seem to tell that we are playing with dinamyte or antrax... Most of us are musicians/enthusiast just focused on make music with the most tools available

well, you gave the best example yourself: you installed the sony demos and tried to reset them after only one day, and now they are gone.

so my general advise is that if you want to use software more or less without problems, use either freeware, fullcracks, or buy it.

or, alternatively, know what you are doing.

in the case of sony, we dont know what we are doing. there is no easy how-to from a trusted source. nobody can give you a guarantee that you dont knock out another product if you fiddle with these funny pace folders (or the later partition map stuff)

Yes, that happened to me on Panther trying that app that have an ilok inside an trash can.

With that app, Echoboy 14 days of demo do not get reseted. And Sony directly says Demo run out. It should work with oher plugs, but I am afraid my OSX reseter is not the tool everybody out there uses.

I want to get the ferridirection approach-method on a OS9 only partition in a drive with Panther, Tiger and Leo partitions... Yes, I know is the worst possible scenario to make tests.

I have done this just to try to help (or may be just for fun) , because -as everybody knows - I don't care a shit about Pro Tools. And of course I know what I'm doing. I'm using one MDDs that I usually use for testing purposes, so no problem into reformat the full system or disassemble it up to the power source.
To isolate the study I only have in this Mac a startup volume with a basic System folder Pro Tools Free and the Sony Oxford plugins.
... so my conclusion is that there is no iLok demo reset on Sony Oxford plugins on Mac Os 9. Unless you reformat your entire hard disk and erase the NVRAM.
I hope this help to prevent some people into breaking his head with no senses like erasing the TheVolumesettingsfolder, Desktop DB, Desktop DF...

If some one wish to really solve this in Mac Os 9, they have to begin with MacBugs, HexEdit and memory dumps.

If iLok reach the NVRAM level... Maybe the reseting PRAM and the CUDA button on motherboard can do something...

What damage (aside the bought iloked licenced software) can do to a pure OS9 install to delete those 3 folders?  Is it something like rebuilding the desktop?

You got more clues than me, maybe you are just not combining those methods: Delete the 3 stuff+PRAM reset+CUDA reset+some prayers...  ;D

When you say reformat the entire HD is because you already tried t wipe a partition?

I wonder if something get written in the same APM or in the PRAM or NVRAM.

Thanks for your efforts, MacTron. We all know for you is disgusting to handle digidesign stuff. Thank you.

Soon we will have a time for the true/truth post of yours.  :D
