Main features

First, the user interface is very comfortable and easy to navigate. It was made specially to be as simple as possible. Second, the Oxford Inflator plugin toolkit allows its user to amplify the sound level of most program material you can use. On top of that, with it, you can add warmth, character, and dynamic sounds as if you were using a vintage hardware amplifier. It is also possible to go beyond the average digital maximum of virtual headroom with this plugin. If you get annoyed with frequent signal overload in other plugins, in Sonnox Oxford Inflator VST your percussive peaks will pass without issues.

One of the key features of this software is 2 flexible modes responsible for the diversity of sound. You can use Band-split and Direct audio modeling modes to get music sound the way you see it and to control the optimal DSP usage. Another feature is that you can add an extra dynamic range of sounds to previously clipped signals. If you master all its tools and controls, you will be able to add such sound effects, as subtle, tube-like harmonic sounds, with warmth, presence, and thickness, or with good old saturation distortion.
