The Sonnox Oxford Inflator is a plug-in designed to give your sound more warmth and presence.  I didn't have any issues with it as far as installation was concerned as it only took a few minutes.  The interface of the software is one of its best features since it is so easy to follow and to use.  It simply has sliders for input, output, effect, and curve, as well as buttons for clipping and band split.  I haven't seen the manual for this plug-in so I can't say too much about it, but I don't think that one is necessary as it is easy enough to figure out how to use on its own.


I am currently running the Sonnox Oxford Inflator plug-in on a Mac Book Pro that has a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 4 GB of RAM.  I run it in a Pro Tools LE system that runs with a Digi 002R audio interface and version 7.4 of Pro Tools LE.  I'm able to use this plug-in as much as I would like within this configuration, as it is a plug-in that won't take up much processing power at all.  This of course really depends on the type of system that you are running, but if you are currently able to run plug-ins without issues, you won't have any problems with this one in terms of performance. 


While the Sonnox Oxford Inflator plug-in isn't an essential to anyone's plug-in collection, it is a plug-in that comes in handy for me.  If I don't have any access to outboard gear to fatten up my signal, this plug-in works well to help me do so.  The price is reasonable for either the TDM or native version and is definitely accessible to both professional and home studio owners.  Again, while I don't think that this would be a good place to start your plug-in collection by any means, if you are looking for some new plug-ins to spice up your sound and capabilities a bit, definitely check out Sonnox's Oxford Inflator.
