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.

Sonnox Oxford Limiter v2

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 out there

This is as close as it gets to the radio sound on masters. My mastering chain has the Chandler Tone Bender, Shadow Hills mastering compressor, SPL vitalizer and the Oxford limiter. Amazing results in the box.

Amazing Record Sound

This brings the energy out of the mix better then most others, its still important for me to have a few Limters cause they all have there own sound but this one is in my list of top 3 and i own all the other major ones. If your making serious music use a serious limiter like this one!

Sonnox Quality

The Sonnox Oxford Limiter v2 is in my ears the most transparent and powerfull Limiter ever. Also the Oxford Limiter v2 can enhance the sound similar to the Sonnox inflator (One of my favorite Plug-Ins).

Sonnox Oxford Limiter v2

The Sonnox Oxford Limiter v2 is a stellar mastering grade limiter, Besides its clarity and detail, it is ideal when transient matters, with tones of headroom and dithering features.

Very versatile and easy to get pro sounding results

You can very easily make records sound "modern" with this in terms of clarity and loudness. Easy to tweak it to get to that place without entering the zone of too much. (Of course, it's easy to get into the zone of too much, too.) There are also enough features that you can master in ways that don't sound so modern....... Really, most things tend to benefit from what it brings if used carefully. The older UA Precision Limiter is still a cool thing, for sure. In some cases, I prefer it, though it is very limited feature-wise in comparison. Funny, it almost feels vintage now and kind of sounds like it in comparison to this. Anyway, if you're looking for a final limiter for mixes, you really can't go wrong with this, in my opinion.
