Released an Oxford Inflator clone for linux, windows and osx


I made an Oxford Inflator clone as an exercise but also for my own usage.

You can get it here: GitHub - gaheldev/inflator: Oxford inflator clone written in faust


interesting, because i use inflator for years and find it very good for what it does.
I will test it next week. Thanks

Yeah I never bought it but always liked its sound watching other people use it.
Turns out it’s a simple waveshaper.

I’d be happy to have your feedback since you’re used to the original one.

VST version works. LV2 version wont work.

Mixbus 10.0
2024-04-28T12:42:04 [ERROR]: failed to instantiate LV2 GUI

Ardour 8.6.0:
2024-04-28T12:44:51 [ERROR]: failed to instantiate LV2 GUI

But the sound is really good in my opinion.

Win10 Mixbus 9 inflator terminates Mixbus.
Win10 Ardour 8.2 inflator terminates Ardour.

Thanks for the feedback!

I’ll probably just remove the lv2 version for the moment then

Too bad :confused:

There’s not much I can do with the current toolchain sadly. I think I know how to make it work but it will take some efforts. I’ll make an update when it’s fixed (will take a while). Thank you for the feedback!
