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

Mind Blowing On Vocals

Whatever magic this plugin does, it’s absolutely astonishing on vocals. Perhaps it was meant for something else, but I find it great for just that.

Great sound and value

I was personally really impressed with the clarity and loudness this plugin instills with ease. It's basically a LUFs knob but also so much more than that. Worth the price!

Some Kind of Magic

I don't know how they do it but this plug-in drastically increases the perceived loudness without compromising the dynamics of the track. The perfect tool to create loud, yet not squashed-sounding mixes.

Stunning

Inflator manages to give the audio material a touch and a surprising presence.
I tried both the native plug in and the UAD one and I must say that the UAD one sounds much better, it produces a clearer, more powerful and brighter sound!
A really great plug in.

A little goes a long way

Love throwing this on Drums and Bass guitar, but when My vocals aren't sitting right I use this and a little does go a long way, after that, I slap it on my Stereo bus and just a tad bit for the magic, loving this Plugin

Still the best for Tool to prevent getting caught up in the loudness war

Simply put you can increase your overall loudness without having to run into that brickwall that kills the mix.
I own lots of maximizing plugins, have tried many tools to get a fuller mix and the Inflator is the only that I tend to reach for.
So naturally I had to take advantage of being able to run it on the UAD hardware and I was very happy when it performed as it did natively while also freeing up some CPU cycles.

It's worth it.

Permanently on my master bus. Don't know if it's just volume, it should have level compensation. In any case, one of the better plugins you can buy.

So simple, so subtle, so good

This plug in instantly makes just about any track sound better. Sometimes it can be extremely subtle, but it seems to make everything about an instrument stand out just a little bit more. Can be used on just about everything and find myself using it more and more.
