Today we’re going to be trying out two wonderful new products (at least new for me): the Sonnox Inflator and the Sonnox Limiter.
The best thing about these plugins is that you can enter to win 1 of 3 copies above! (Scroll up to enter!)
If you’ve seen any of our reviews/demo’s in the past, you know how we do these things. I open up the plugin for the first time, put it on, and try it out. This way, you get my real reaction to using this plugin. My first experience will be your first experience!
We’ve had a chance to try out some Sonnox plugins in the past, and we love them! I’ve heard really good things about the Sonnox Oxford Limiters! Whenever I would talk lovingly about L2’s people would say “oh yeah the L2 is great, but you’ve got to try the Oxford out!” – Which makes me even more excited to try these out!
If you’re interested in learning more about the technical aspects of these plugins, you can read more under the video below or you can visit their website!
Using The Oxford Inflator
The Oxford Inflator is awesome! I’m no expert – as you know, but it feels like I’ve got a parallel compression of energy coming out from underneath that is not affect the overall output volume.
Using the Oxford Limiter
I’ve heard so much about this plugin and I’m not disappointed! The Sonnox Oxford Limiter is dirty. I love what does to the bass. It’s dirty, it’s mean, it’s disgusting, it’s distorted, and it’s enhancing.
All I can say is Remarkable!
These are going to be go-to plugins for me moving forward!
I’d like to thank our friends over at Sonnox for letting us review these and letting us give away 3 copies to our amazing community!
The Sonnox Oxford Inflator
A unique and powerful Plug-In to increase loudness, without sacrificing sonic quality or dynamic range. Add power and presence to your mix without the pumping of compression, or use on individual channels to bring them forward and add weight. Perfect to help vocals cut through the mix.
When driven harder, Inflator delivers tube-like musical warmth and provides the ‘sonic glue’ you need to gel your mix together!
“Inflator is a rare Plug-In…I can’t live without it. It simply makes everything sound better…”
“Just the right amount of Inflator will breathe life into anything you run through it!
The Sonnox Oxford Limiter
Having crafted and refined your mix, join the growing number of professionals who’ve chosen the Oxford Limiter v3 to deliver maximum loudness, density and presence – whilst retaining the kind of clarity and transient detail that conventional brick-wall limiting can’t.
The Plug-In is a true peak limiter that offers recently enhanced levels of processing and metering accuracy. The result is that you get to see and automatically correct otherwise invisible reconstruction overloads – and conform to the accepted industry ITU-R BS.1770-4 standard.
Whether you’re after the Oxford Limiter’s hallmark transparency or heavier creative effects, its advanced look-ahead processing and unique Enhance function provide the sample-value limiting and musical boost needed to reliably avoid clipping and confidently increase apparent loudness.
The price of the v3 Limiter hasn’t changed from that of the original Plug-In and the upgrade is free to registered users of the Native/HDX Generation 5 (G5) products. If that’s you, then download the new installer here.
