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.

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.

Add power, presence, and tube-like warmth to mixes

Increase perceived loudness of any source, without audibly affecting sonic quality

Get virtual headroom above digital maximum, allowing percussive peaks to pass without signal overload

Use Direct and band-split modes for maximum flexibility and optimal DSP usage

PUMP IT UP !!

Some mixes turn up a little flat and some very flat and what I mean here by flat is; lacking body or punch…. What the Oxford Inflator does is blow your mix up into a master !!

Very Great dynamic / True Color

Utilisé pour le moment qu'une seule fois mais je peux déjà affirmer que ça fonctionne très bien ! Ça dynamise le son (ou le mix) comme un maximiser.
Je pense que je vais l'inclure dans ma chaine de traitements lors d'un projet master.

Inflator adds to the final & most vital 5% needed to glue my vocal into the mix.

There's just something to it. I always say 95% of the work is often in the final 5% of the mix process. Inflator adds to the final & most vital 5% needed to glue my vocal into the mix. As I wrote, there's just something to it.

Use it on every mix

Ever since I first tried it on a Mixbus I could not let go of it. It has been on every mixbus since then. It just makes your tracks pop out the speakers more
