The Professional Standard for Adding Power and Punch — Without Squashing.

A longtime secret weapon for audio professionals, the Sonnox Oxford Inflator does what so many dynamics processors only pretend to do — increase the apparent loudness of your mix or individual tracks, without audibly affecting sonic quality or reducing dynamic range. The Inflator can add power, warmth, and presence to your mix, providing virtual headroom above digital maximum, while maintaining musical character.

Watch the overview video.

The proven answer to today’s heavily compressed, "louder-is-better" mixes, the Inflator can deliver louder mixes without the pumping and over-saturation commonly associated with compressors. So you can add loudness to even heavily squashed or compressed material, or add musicality and apparent dynamic range to previously clipped signals.

The Smarter Way to “Turn it Up”
The Inflator was developed for mixing and mastering engineers whose mixes have to compete on the basis of overall apparent loudness. Since it's truly a realtime process, there are no time constants involved, as would be the case with limiters and compressors. For the same reason, there is no loss of presence or flattening of percussive attack. It’s the fastest way to pump up the volume, while retaining musicality. 
 
Used subtly, the Inflator can also add a natural tube-type warmth and character to acoustic or jazz flavored mixes. Used on vocals or single instruments, it can add presence, as well as depth and softness; on drums or percussion, the Inflator can produce astonishing dynamic presence and tightness. 

With its unique feature set and easy operation, the Sonnox Inflator is a must-have tool, proven on hundreds if not thousands of hit records.

    Enormous Sound
    by J. Wharton(Wednesday 22 June, 2016)

    Great plugin which adds amazing width and depth to channel strips, bus or master channels. Only way to describe it is that sounds just become 'bigger' overall. When you then bypass it it's heartbreaking. Read More

    Essential at the mixing and mastering stage.
    by J. Ng(Thursday 16 June, 2016)

    For the mixing stage, it enhances the sound of individual instrument like violin and adds harmonic to it like a magic. For the mastering stage, it can help archieving the desirable loudness level of the overall mix. I got Sonnox EQ on UAD platform before. This one is the 2nd of the same… Read More
