Easily enhance high frequencies and
breathe new life into dull tracks.

The Precision Enhancer kHz plug-in for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces is a sophisticated tool with a simple control set designed to bring dull or poorly recorded tracks to life. However, with five distinct Enhancement modes, the Precision Enhancer kHz will find uses on virtually any source in any type of mix.

The Precision Enhancer kHz plug-in can minimally massage the middle and upper frequencies of a mix, or drastically alter the presence or dynamics of individual tracks or groups. Unlike other enhancers that function by frequency delay or filtered clipping, the Precision Enhancer kHz works on specialized techniques of equalization and dynamic expansion that can be used as a highly versatile effect.

Now You Can:

Intuitively make small repairs or drastic alterations to single sources or an entire mix

Choose from five enhancement modes to suit any source, from vocals to drums and bass

Use the Blend control for simple parallel processing

Gently refine vocals and their all-important treble frequencies

Mastering enhancer

Before you are done with your mastering squeeze a little extra precision from your midrange with this easiest to use little tool ! All mode ( all on) gives your track that little extra edge. I heard it first on a mastering demo and it does what it promises : enhance your tracks ! All you have to do is decide how subtil this is going to be :)

Precision Enhancer kHz Plug-In

This is a game changer. It just works, and with little to no diddling you can add air and three dimensionality to a mix. I have used BBE and Aphex hardware units for years and this plugin does the job with less artifacts than either of the hardware units. Job well done UA Folks!

Amazing at Vinyl Record Restoration

The Precision Enhancer kHz has become an indispensable tool in my vinyl restoration chain. Removing vinyl crackle and clicks is a delicate thing, and even though I audition these processes to make sure none of the actual music is being removed while applying these processes, the reality is that some of the crackle and clicks from the original vinyl transfers do interfere with the upper frequencies of the recordings, so some of the brightness is lost (especially when trying to restore records where the crackle is almost as loud as the audio).

This tool adds additional harmonic content to the upper frequencies in ways that you can't get by using any single EQ or Dynamics Processor. Highly recommended for this type of restoration work!

It does what it has to do

I never used a lot of enhancing plugins on my projects... Not that i don't have them, but they were sounding a bit like "metal" i think... If i compare this one with the air enhancer, standard in pro tools, then i have to say that this one is not comparable... It is easy to use and does what it should do: enhancing your tracks with precision, and sounding very clear. It gives your vocal recordings a sheen and polish that i have never seen in other enhancers. A wonderful tool, i use it a lot, most of the time on vocals.

Okay - depends on your needs

I bought the kHz since the price was so good. I don't see using it too much though. It is probably good for tape restoration and maybe drum overheads, but it adds a high frequency expansion that in the digital environment seems too much. In fact, I am often doing the opposite - high freqeuncy compression of drum overhead mics (or de-essing),
The quality of the plugin is good; it's just that I don't have much need for it.
I find occasions where, if I need to present the highs better, I usually use the SPL Vitalizer (highly recommended - that combined with the K-Stereo is a good way to save MP3s).
Good product - depends on needs.

I should have known better than to purchase this product. It does exactly what it says it does, but what it does, I do not need. Perhaps it will be useful on the day I get tracks to mix that are really dull or problematic, but until that happens, this plug will not really be pulled out. It is not subtle enough to use on well-recorded material. I never liked hardware "aural enhancers", I should have known better than to purchase a software "aural enhancer".

A very fast and easy way of finding that sweet spot that’ll make the difference. Thanks a lot UAD you keep on digging into my bank account.

Not much use

Haven't found much of a use for this, it may be for technical heads more than the average person who relies on his/her ears. I'd rather use an eq. instead of the precision k. This may be a worthless review as I clearly don't know it's proper use - but to my ears, it is not a necessary tool.

Great plugin!

I'm almost at any time will think of him, he let me live tracks, and flat tracks, plug in after him, just like women do, like beauty, before and after great!

Try as I might, I've not been able to justify this purchase to myself. I compose for film (shorts and documentaries) and instrumental jazz and also produce vocal pop/rRnB.

I guess I thought this might have been a tool similar to an Aural Exciter, that might give a little bit of shine or sparkle on an otherwise dull sounding track (say, a vintage synth patch recorded dry, and buried in the mix) without having to resort to EQ and disrupt the sonic balance already in place.

I'm a composer, not an engineer, so perhaps a deeper list of presets might have helped showcased better this plug-in's abilities, which I bought on impulse, partly due to its low price, and partly because of the reputation of UA; I never thought I'd get a dud for my money here, but there it is.

Master Enhancer

It really opens up the mix. It's very clean and it really brings out the high frequencies on a master track. You can't go wrong with this.

Great For Vocals, Spoken Word, Reading, Podcasts

I've used this little dude on so much! It has a way of making my music shine, especially Vocals, with very little messing about. I won't go into this much because it has already been covered by everyone here, but this plugin has a way of pulling out highs and refreshing dull tracks. I also do audio books and a podcast, and I use it on my voice in both cases to give the sound of my voice more sparkle and appeal. Yes it is easy to over-use it, so don't kill your mix with it. Add it in a dash at a time and listen in amazement as it comes to life! A very useful tool that I'm glad I found! Give it a try in demo mode and I bet you will wind up buying it as well!

That Little Bit of Sparkle

Throw this on a bus and dial in just the right amount of sheen to lift that vocal (or anything else) up to sit on top. I know we've also go the Precision Enhancer Hz for our lower frequency friends, but I've employed this to very satisfying results with beefier synth tracks to help them maintain some presence and identity even on smaller speakers

Very useful and good soundig plug!

I've demoed it a bit.. I used it along with an equalizer to rebuild the high frequencies and give a professional touch to some low quality loops of acoustic drums .. and.. yeah!

It is like getting extra air

This plugin is excellent on OH's when the acoustic didn't help. Is is great on vocals also, it gives you that extra air that make the difference. It is very useful, I find a new way to use it in every mix. Just go easy on the modes, some of them could be radicals, but this could be used on those synths that doesn't seems to work. Great plugin, very useful. Thanks.
