A dramatic update to one of the world’s favorite professional limiter plug-ins.

The Sonnox Oxford Limiter v2 plug-in for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces lets you increase the volume, density, and presence of your tracks without losing all-important transients or dynamics.

Featuring the latest generation of Oxford Limiter's inter-sample peak (ISP) detection — introduced for the first time on the UA platform — this powerful plug-in is an essential tool for engineers looking for an uncolored, precise limiter for their masters.

Now You Can:

Get maximum loudness without losing essential transients and dynamic impact

Increase density, presence, and clarity on group buses and masters

Audition and apply TPDF dither for 24-bit and 16-bit output word lengths, with four types of variable noise shaping

Prevent distortion during post-master processing stages such as MP3/AAC encoding

A World-Class Mastering Limiter

A World-Class Mastering Limiter

Conventional limiting in mastering applications has a number of benefits. However, there are less helpful consequences, such as a loss of clarity and detail of transients. The Sonnox Oxford v2 plug-in delivers the hottest levels possible while keeping your dynamics intact.

Goodbye Inter-Sample Peaks

Goodbye Inter-Sample Peaks

Inter-sample peaks are introduced by post-master lossy compression, like mp3 conversion, and sub-optimal listening devices The Oxford Limiter v2 is the only UAD plug-in for loudness enhancement that incorporates the most modern standards for inter-sample peak detection and correction, going way beyond standard brick wall limiters.

Final Fit and Finish

Final Fit and Finish

A final stage processor must provide a comprehensive set of dithering options so that the engineer can monitor in real-time the effects of dithering, and then apply it to their final mixdown. The Oxford Limiter v2 provides both 24 bit and 16 bit output word length selections, using high pass TPDF (Triangular Probability Density Function) dithering, plus four types of variable-depth noise shaping.

Key Features

Professional mastering-grade peak limiting with attack, release & variable soft-knee
Enhance section to increase perceived loudness without gain pumping effects
Recon meter shows reconstructed rather than sampled signal
Auto Comp fixes reconstruction errors without losing overall loudness, while conforming to the industry's true peak measurement standard (ITU-R BS.1770-4)
Comprehensive high-quality dither and noise shaping options
Four variable-strength noise shaping modes for use with highly dynamic program material
Great library of factory presets to get you started

OVERALL RATING

fire and forget

always nice smooth and shiny. does not kill drums' dynamics, but always kills some roughness. In my opinion a bit sweet even with enhance slider @ 0. Good for radio hits, but independent artists would find it difficult to achieve some moods. In some cases Precision Limiter from UA or other limiter may be more suitable. I would give 4,5, but no 5.

L3.. You're fired

Have been looking for a replacement for Waves L2 for years: Something transparent, that just brought the final mix up to todays levels
At first I thought that might be the L3, but sadly both of the "L"s just batter the "L" out of the mix if hit too hard.

Dabbled with others, but none stayed.

Then cometh the Oxford. Oxford stays. L's fired.

I only say wow!

I have tested this plugin on the master of a song and compared it with waves L3-16. This plug-in can make Songs even louder and using it alone, it does the job even better adding magic to the bass. This without eating any native computer ressources. I guess it's the next must-have plugin.

Best limiter

The ISP and transparency make this my go to limiter for itb mixing. You can push levels without crushing dynamics.

great limiter

for louder level without lost sound balance.

Musical sound

Oxford Limiter sounds best when it's limiting up to 6-8dB's worth of peaks. Push it much further and it begins to distort. If you're looking for a surgical peak limiter to drop across your 2.0 for meeting broadcast requirements, iZotope Maximiser is probably a better route, with its selectable algorithms and overall greater sonic transparency. But the Oxford is more musical and warm, and has its own character. I've found it very useful as a pre-limiter for excessively peaky signals going in to a compressor, such as hand claps and small percussion. Oxford Limiter combined with the UA API 2500 compressor is pure magic.
