Zener Confidence and Purpose
Using the Zener Limiter Plugin allows you to musically command and control a lot of dynamic situations with real artistic purpose with great ease and speed, knowing that the sound instills a sense of confidence and quality as you aim towards the final result. Given the recent honour of mixing an album tracked by the great Jim Scott it was such a pleasure to drive the drum room mics through the Zener to hone in on the ambient vibe of the overall kit during the context of the whole mix.
What I had been looking for:)
I wanted a limiter to glue my mixes and the the Zener does it with character! I love its color. The comp modes are also great on guitar busses.
True power,wont regret!
Subtle and transparent
Using this on my master bus now and I love it. The mid-side function really opens up the image, making the mix glisten.
Although I only try it a couple of times, I like it very much. I believe it will be staying in many of my buss tracks.
Fantastic and over the top
Sounds great but not for everything
One of a kind
It really has it's sound... It's not the piece you through on anything and everywhere. But wow... it sound so good when you want it!
One of a kind that I think is worth the money.
This thing sings!!! Parallel anything with it. Obviously it rocks on drums but it enhances ANYTHING you run through it.. good grief what a sonic beast!!
I am a big fan of the hardware. This emulation is excellent. I love it on most all analog sources recorded tracks... vocals the most, acoustic Instruments, Percussion etc. I know alot of people love it on a mixbuss or bkv buss etc. I'm sort of set in my ways there and love the SSL GBuss there. I happen to love UAD SSL emulation as well. Its outstanding.
Unbelievable good on drums!!
I demoed this beast out on a few mixes and what it did to my drum bus was unbelievable - the THD sounds great and will fatten up even the wimpiest sounding drums. Also sounds great on bass tracks, leveling out/controlling the signal/focusing the sound and adding a great tone. Actually I'm really really surprised just HOW great this plugin sounds. It is that kind of plugin that you just can't live without once you've tried it. Seriously!! This is absolutely one of my best buys this year - highly recommended! It's a true five star plugin! ★★★★★
Great sounding limiter
Using the lomiter for almost everything, from drums guitars master you name it, it just works awsome
Beatles Drums. Yes please.
I wanted a compressor to replace my old 32 bit compressor by Abbey Road for that over compressed drum sound. Well step on stage Zener. I produce a lot of retro-sounding music and this is killer for that type of music.
Great sense !
Excelent sounding !!

Great stuff, Really get a job!
Needed a bus/mastering compressor and I demo'd quite a few. Precision Bus, API 2500, UA 175B/176 (not really designed for stereo bus but I tried it anyway), and this. All nice, but I quickly narrowed it down to this and the 2500, and ultimately the Zener won out. It just has a warmth and character the others don't - similar to the Chandler Curve Bender. They make a great match on your stereo bus. Easy to "overdo" (always tempting to unlink the channels for a spacey gooey stereo image), but even with conservative settings this thing is magical. I can't imagine using anything else for mastering and I'm sure I'll be using it on subgroups as well. Very pleased.
Great on drum bus
I’m using this on my drum bus now. Quite amazing! It really changes the perspective of things, and opens up the sound a bit more for other instruments imo, and still makes things right and punchy. I like it!
This thing is a beast!
Cleanest sounding limiter I've heard from UAD. The type of compression it does is unlike anything else. Overall, very musical, and ahead of a modern plug-ins time.

Fantastic tone and character at bus in parallel, and colour for stereo bus.
For Parallel drums and vocals, there's nothing better. Great modelling too..
