Sonnox® Oxford Inflator
J'adore ce plug simple et efficace, je le recommande à tous
Flavour,pressure and magic for your mix or your bus :-)
This magic plugin gives your tracks pressure, flavour and control. The Sony Oxford console stands for this kind of maximizer. It really gives your track or your mix a cool attitude. I prefer to use it on a drum bus... makes it much easier to feature the drums inside a mix.
The Secret Sauce
A little can go a long way here! I feel it's easy to overdo, I find myself using the Max Loudness Smooth preset, but I drop the input to -4.54 and so far that has worked perfect for me not too much but just right. I throw that last on a bus that I combine the vocals and chorus together on. -Faust- (ThePrince)
Alternative for parallel compression
For me, the inflator is a instant alternative for parallel compression in which, is subtle, but brings up juicy tone of the stem or track.
Best secret weapon for presence and warmth, always stuck in my mix buss chain.

This thing is insane!
I just love this plugin! It works perfectly on almost anything! Brings up all the good things in any sound source if you don’t over do it. Highly recomended.
Not your traditional limiter, it is better.
I have this at the end of every chain. It just does something special beyond a typical limiter.
Must have plugin
Stellar......what else can I say.Been using this plugin for so many years and now on the UAD format.Buy it now!
Magie à l’audio
Ce plugins est vraiment extraordinaire et simple a utiliser. Ça donne de la chaleur au mix , je l’ai utilisé en mastering et c’est très convaincant.je ne regrette pas son achat.
A processor unlike all others
I love Paul Frindle’s work, the stuff he did at Sonnnox is amazing. The Inflator is a one-of-a-kind processor.
Inflator is being used on every sessions here !
I love this plugin,I also use it to correctly increase the volume and highlight a certain track)
A must have!
Works great on percussive material, I love it on the Drum Buss for getting punch, old stuff but still one of the best!
a mostly underrated plugin
You can use is everywhere for a little lift/ excitement. Give you more life in your audio.
What is it?
What is it? Harmonic plugin, distortion, compressor or ...? It doesn't matter, it sounds really good. On individual tracks, on the bus, on the complete mix. What do you want more?
Simple but effective
Im pretty sure this is just a parallel compressor with a scooped eq curve but it does a darn good job of bringing a sound to the front. Great for individual tracks as well as the mix bus.
What's not to like?
A friend mine recommended this one, though of course it's well known. I'm loving it so far on drum bus. Instantly adds excitement and punch at the same time.
Ugly Lil' Bastard Sounds Good
I'm not crazy about the way this plugin looks (never been), but I'm crazy about how it sounds. And THAT should be enough. =)

Really really helpful!!!
Every single time I drop it in the whole mix or in a single channel, it makes Bigger and phatter the track, it also makes something to the harmonics that I just love.
Didn't know what I was missing before I bought this!
Instant loudness machine without obvious compression artefacts. This is such a simple thing that no other plugin so far seems to get right!
