Overview

Precision Multiband Plug-In

Original UA Design Featuring Five Spectral Bands of Premium Compression, Expanding, or Gating.

The Precision Multiband is a specialized mastering tool that provides five spectral bands of dynamic range control. Compression, Expansion or Gate can be chosen separately for each of the five bands. The unparalleled flexibility and easy to follow graphical design of the Precision Multiband make it the ideal tool for the novice as well as the seasoned mastering engineer.

Use the Precision Multiband for anything from complex dynamic control to simple de-essing. Two filterbank modes offer precise linear-phase or minimum-phase gain control; use the linear-phase option for perfectly phase-coherent results, or minimum-phase for a more “analog” sound. Both filterbank modes achieve the magnitude response of a Linkwitz-Riley filter and provide perfect magnitude reconstruction.

    Very intuitive plug, needs sidechain!
    by R. Barley (Sunday 27 April, 2014)

    I use multiband for a variety of reasons, both live and in studio, for mix and finalization. It all just depends on the need. All in all I like this plug, with one caveat: it needs the ability to accept sidechain on individual bands. To my knowledge the C6 is the only other multiband compressor that … Read More

    3 words: Vital For Mastering. This is an incredibly transparent, 5 band Mastering Compressor with EXTREMELY good GUI and controls and features such as soloing bands while tweaking. Did I mention the EXTREMELY good GUI and EXTREMELY transparent sound? You must have this! … Read More

    Great for loudness maximizing without adding to many extra artifacts. The degree of control and type of metering really help get everything dial-ed in and sounding great. … Read More

    So many noble efforts by highly respected developers have been laid to waste by this plug-in! Nothing comes close to the intuitive ease of use -- and most of all the sound -- of the Precision Multiband! I can get it to tickle or whup-butt as needed, and it goes right where I tell it to, gets the … Read More
