Original UA design dual-VCA dynamic processor for transparent gain reduction.

The Precision Buss Compressor is a dual-VCA-type dynamic processor that yields modern, transparent gain reduction characteristics. It is specifically designed to “glue” mix elements together for that cohesive and polished sound typical of master section console compressors.

A flexible and intuitive tool, the Precision Buss Compressor is intended primarily for controlling the final output of your mix, but can be usefully applied to a variety of sources from drum buses or overheads to vocal groups, or even as a channel compressor on individual tracks.

Now You Can:

Mix with UA’s workhorse transparent dynamics processor

Set a custom fade-out or fade-in of the mix between 1 and 60 seconds long

Use the High Pass Filter to keep low-end punchy when compressing a mix

Harness the Mix control for "parallel" style dynamics control

This has become a solid go-to in my arsenal of bus comps!

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.

A really nice Buss Compressor.

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.

PRECISION BUSS COMP REVIEW

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.
Impressive!

Precission Buss Compressor

Well, I liked this one because of its versatility.
Pretty accurate like the other precission plug-ins, and you have almost the same
options that you will find in every buss compressor.
BUT, it has the FILTER that allows you to select the frequency from the buss compressor will start to compress and leave the same all the frequencies that are
under the frequency chosen on the FILTER option. IT'S AWESOME.
And it has the MIX option that lets you make a parallel compression if you want.
You can compress heavily but the signal doesn't become harsh...
The meters are very accurate and sensitive.
Excellent plug-in :D

the soft touch

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

Precision Series

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.

Best Bus Compressor

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.

2 Bus Magic

This is living on my 2 bus right now. The filter control is a great addition to leave the low-end intact, while being able to get the bounce just right on the whole mix with the other controls. I highly recommend this to anyone looking to add polish to their final mixes.

Buss is Boss!!!

New surgeon for my busses. That's TIGHT!!! Right Now I'm dreaming about Neve 33609 (be sure to buy soon), but this one saving my mixes really cool! On some buses tires works better than other members of the dynamics family.

Excellent Stereo Buss compressor

I use this plug in on the stereo outs.. Does exactly what I want it to do without killing the mix.... super flexible.. I would definitely recommend the product... I got it on sale and have been extremely pleased with the performance..

Precision Buss Compressor

Fantastic and musical stereo compressor. Great for the stereo buss and a perfect alternative to the SSL stereo buss compressor. The cool difference is that the Precision Buss Compressor has a filter on it so you can compress your mix without crush the bottom end. A necessary mix tool.

Flexible and largely transparent compressor

I have enjoyed lots of good uses for this compressor:

Firstly, its fairly transparent and doesnt colour in its compression, so its reliable to just tuck transients or as people say 'glue' elements better together.

Perhaps more importantly, I love the release flexibility on it. Because of the decent attack range and particularly release options I use this compressor on certain tracks that I want to sustain the sound through longer release times. Add to that the mix knob and HP filter, very flexible!

Its also an excellent and useful choice on a master bus to play with your incoming input and output gain control since it has generous gain knobs and good metering to go with it. Super flexible, super convenient.

Really good

I like this one. It doesn't add much (if not: any) color to the sound, it just compresses in a very accurate but musical way.
I use it for subtle compression on sums and the master but also on single signals if i just want to reduce dynamics and nothing else.
No cons.

Excellent Buss Compressor

The best Buss Compressor that I've ever used.

Transparent Bus Compression for these who don´t need colour on the buss

I bought it since I had a coupon left and always wanted it because of the transparency and the filter. Also owning a couple of free and paid buss comps from another vendors, this one does also a very good job and I like the accuracy and simple interface of the comp. IMHO I would buy it again if it wouldn´t be in my collection, so just grab when the prices are dropping and feel good with a nice and transparent compressor. Did I say transparent? Yes, TRANSPARENT!

Comp of my choice.
