I've been using this on my main buss and it's been stellar. Very nice to have a mix control - very handy, indeed. I'm not using it for pumping or deep compression effects, just as a nice gentler 2:1 before the Limiter and it's fantastic! I've been able to achieve a nice balance of headroom and volume.
I can highly recommend the precision buss compressor, Its one of my favorite plug ins to use on drums. I make a lot of deep/house records, and for me the biggest sell point is the ability to control your compression with the smoothest of controls! .
Perfect for glueing sounds, New york/parallel Compression, among other sonic duties like mastering.
i call it the soft touch compressor cause it gives a soft touch to everything it touches... works well on raw ruff mixdowns and smoothes out the kinks
As always, it does precisely what it says on the tin...
...however, I'm now beginning to think I should've bought the Precision Limiter instead.
This plug-in operates near silently, unless you really push it to stupid limits, but I still can't tame some snare shots without compromising the track's overall sonics.
That's probably more a criticism of me and my choice of sounds during tracking than with the UAD Precision Buss Compressor.
Ah well, always learning...
I have a beautiful Yamaha C7 piano in my studio that I record often, and I've tried many different compressors on it, but they all have issues. The Precision Buss Compressor is the only plugin that I have found that will tame the dynamics of a performance on my piano without poorly affecting the original signal. I highly recommend!!
My favorite mix buss compressor by far! After trying a hanfull of the popular competitors, I've finally settled on the UAD Buss comp! It doesn't have that "hard" SSL style sound or a round sound..or any kind of sound for that matter, it just stays out of the way and does what it's supposed to. You get precision control over your transients with virtually no coloration. Only the essential components and knobs with no gimmicky features, which makes it a snap to use!!
Great for NY style parallel buss compression and I also use it on the master from time to time.
I had this plug in for over a year now. I tried it in different situations and with diverse styles of music, I have settled for using it in the main out bus during mixing. As a main bus compressor this plug-in is excels regardless of the music style or instrumentation of the band. I use it for rock mixes as well as orchestral film scores. The sound is clear and transparent and it responds gently to gentle changes in the threshold and attack parameters. I have tried many bus compressors while mixing, including the SSL emulations, I honestly prefer this one. The only reason I do not give 5 stars is because I rather reserve that rating for plug-ins that are out of this world. This one is not quite out of this world, but I use it all the time and it always delivers.
I compared this to the SSL Bus Compressor and this is more transparent and maintains the quality of the audio better than the SSL.
Try for yourself and see.
If you want to hear a mix where this was used on the master, check out www.reverbnation.com/rialety. "Steppin Out" track.
I still haven't figured out exactely what to do with it...

This thing is amazing! Works very well on vocal and guitar busses. Really helps glue things together in the mix.
I find this buss compressor very usefull when gluing things together. A lot of options and still very simple. Gotta love this buss comp.
I tried the demo first and was full convinced to grab this plug, and couldn't be more pleased. Perfect for drums and vocal busses, and what makes this stand out is the ability to adjustable low end frequencies to let the kicks sneak through.
On drums this is an awesome tool, especially if you work in dance and urban music where you need your drums to really pop out in the mix yet still have controlled compression to tame all you're throwing at it.
Can't say enough good things about this Buss Compressor, love it.
The right thing! From now on, an indispensable tool of my mix chain. Extremely transparent, clean and very usable.
Compressor for each recommendation.
Whenever the subject - "Buss Compressor" - is approached, the SSL 4000 compressor comes up. I have the SSL duende mini with the Channel Strip and the Buss Compressor and I like better the UAD Precision Buss Compressor because it sounds more transparent and have more options. The low end filter and the mix knobs were great ideas ...
... This is not just a Buss Compressor is a swiss army knife of compression that can be used on any type of material.

The Precision Buss Compressor Plug-in, is a one of a kind, that compensates all needed limiter and compression in a controlling a mastering or an individual instrument.
It is one that I found that does what it is design to do, plus.
A great plug-in.
awesome bus compressor !
i really love it and use it on all my bus/groups.
amazing on drum bus , super transparent and clean.
love the built in parallel compression option with the mix knob and the filter section for reducing sensitivity of the compressor to the low frequencies,just genius.

It reminds me of a rabbit hewing my socks when I'm not at home.
I'm still learning the Funtions and knobs on this device but ,just dumbing down and using presets for a quicfix, does nice results. I also like the fact that you can mix in the compressed signal , which basically achieves parrellel compression without creating a addition aux bus!
