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.

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

Key Features

Large-format center-console-type dynamics
Auto release for transparent buss compression
Automatic Fade in or out, 1 to 60 seconds
Mix control blends wet and dry signals
Requires a UAD DSP Accelerator Card or Apollo Interface available from authorized dealers worldwide

Get some clarity and glue yer mix together

Like all Precision stuff, this compressor is hyper-transparent and does what it says on the tin. Great sounding compression with very little added character. Even has that cool Fade button, haha.

The first pluging you must have!

After working with, shadow hills, Elysia alpha , SSL, Neve, I must tell you, I beleive this is THE BEST compressor for my mastering. In my idea, there is no competitor for it. Thank you UAD for creating this amazing plugin. I really Love it!

Requested review

I like this easy to use compressor for the transparency and option to let the low end through. If I was to speak to an update it would be the option to unlink the left and right.

Good for 2 bus or master

It sounds little bit different from ssl buss comp, more transparent, which makes him better choise for mastering purposes

Very nice subtle filter with first class bus compressor.

Well worth the purchase, works very well on Logic x summing stacks as well as drum buses et cetera, nice warm transience. That said I’m also very impressed with the precision plugins.

A powerful "tool" for the learned

...Love this little worker bee. A very powerful "tool" for the learned. This plug puts that reel "sticky— icky" on your mix! It just glues everything together by adding sheen, and delivers that subtle boost. This is Precision, with lots of bearing. Thank yoU.AD!Love
