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.

Now You Can:

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

The best inflator for the mix bus. You can get a rounder sound.

Great Plug

It’s a really beast. I worked over years with the Great OXFORD-Console from Sony, but there‘s 95% no difference to the original beast.

Must-have for modern music making

Drastically increases perceived loudness. Gives you that three-dimensional feeling and you mix. But don’t overdo this))

Love it.

It’s not often I find a “gotta have” piece of gear or plugin, but I really like what this thing does. A little goes a long way, but it can really give a mix an extra lift, and it shows up in clients’ comments!

True magic sauce, but beware of aliasing

A classic plugin that "beautifies" the 2-buss! The amount and curve have a lot to play with. The harmonic saturation is magical.

However, unlike many UAD plugins, this one does not have any anti-aliasing processing at all. For the best results, I prefer to run it at 96k or up to reduce the digital artifacts. Fortunately, this is a 2-buss thing and I can just apply it after exporting the mix.

Awesome

Just Perfect

It’s like magic

Don’t know what this does under the hood but it makes the audio sound much louder than it really is (makes it sound louder without adding much gain)...don’t know if I am tripping...but my meter is not going in the red.

My conclusion....I am loving it!!!

The Fastest Mixer Fixer

We record all shows and rehearsals direct to two track L-R from our A&H GLD board. I usually take the mix, drop it in to Logic, put the Oxford Inflator on it and call it good. The results are immediate and the effect on the mix is dramatic. This is a no-brainer at $89.00.

This Plug-in makes everything sound thicker. Great for everything!

Good for adding presence

I use subtly when I want something upfront. Needs a bit of care when adjusting by listening not to add too much distortion.

Simply the best

Saturation has become essential to me when mixing and mastering. This one does it in a very fine adjustable way and only distorts at high settings. Brings instruments or vocals or whole mixes forward.

This is significant!

So far I’ve only used this while mastering and it is outstanding..it won’t replace traditional mastering but when used judiciously it gets the job done! I own many fine plug-ins but this is the first that compelled me to write a review...
