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.
