Original UA designed, premium performance brickwall limiter.
The Precision Limiter plug-in for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces is a single-band, look-ahead brickwall limiter made primarily for use with program material. Easy to use, the Precision Limiter plug-in is a colorless, transparent mastering limiter.
No upsampling is used, nor does the Precision Limiter pass audio through any filters — audio remains untouched unless the compressor is working, in which case, only gain is affected.
Now You Can:
Use the unique Contour Mode to tweak the attack, shape, and character of a track
Easily prevent clipping on masters, tracks, and buses
Harness colorless limiting for maximum transparency

Usability and easy
I like the meter. It simply works and it´s easy to use. I use it always on Master. It only lacks the function : intersample peak reduction. It´s a little overpriced for 199€ but...Read More

Precision Limiter Rocks
I like this product so far, the metering seems to be great!. I only wish i had the option to make this and other uad plugins zoom in like the waves durrough meter. Also it would be nice to...Read More

Super control!!! For soft and gentle songs it is ideal, it would be desirable still that that on more rigid. That there would be a choice.Read More
1.5ms look-ahead, brick-wall, zero overshoot
Totally colorless limiting characteristics
Standard Peak/RMS, K-12, K-14, and K-20 metering modes
User adjustable or intelligent auto release
Unique Contour Mode allows attack shaping
Requires a UAD DSP Accelerator Card or Apollo Interface available from authorized dealers worldwide
Great sounding BUT: NO TPL -> not ready for the future!
Great sound, very little distortion, open, rich sound if you don't push it too hard. Useless for True-Peak Limiting which is getting more and more important. I never liked True Peaks on CD but it's even worse in streaming and mp3 and with normalized volumes (iTunes and others).Superloud doesn't make sense anymore, so clipping-free is the way to go. UAD please add TPL feature so I don't need my NUGEN limiter after the precision anymore!!

Clarity combined with the power at any point of the scale- is what you expect from it.. And this is what you get without unnecessary words.
Amazing Transparent Limiter .
i use it for mastering does an amazing job!!!, sounds crystal clear .
Analog Bass Digital High
Not another Limiter!!
But seriously, as a mastering engineer, I have found that no one limiter does the right job for all mixes. Some add presence that is not always appropriate; some respond to the frequency range differently from others; some have high CPU load to get the benefit of their 'intelligent' algorithms; some give up after 6 - 9 dB (a definite risk for DAC overload and a possible sign of artifacts). When you need transparent brickwall limiting (and K-14 monitoring), this is the 'go-to' limiter of the pack. And the two attack curve choices provide a good variety for different styles and tracks. Definitely a 'top three' limiter!
M, i have mixed feelings on this.
Sometimes i find this works very well, but in all honesty i think it holds nothing over logics bog standard limiter.
Don't get me wrong i think its a good plugin, but for mastering? No, it's not there yet.
I'm no mastering engineer but I can hear the difference between some of the other limiters out there, quite simply it does it's job with out adding nasty artefacts. Great tool for mixing and sending a premaster version to clients. (or they can use the volume knob!)
it's a fine limiter, but for the money the slate and oxford are superior
i´ve heard better ones...this prize is actually too high for what you get.
I´m a bit disappointed
Does what it says
The final piece of the puzzle. Is it worth $200? No, but when its $25 bucks I'll take it.
Still The Undisputed Champ
My first major purchase back when I was just starting my own shop was UAD accelerator and the complete (I think it was V5) set of UA plugs available at the time. These days I run a largely analog, very nicely appointed studio, and I have quite a range of limiters both hardware and software to choose from. The Precision Limiter is still the best of all of them if the specific goal is to leave your tracks sounding as close to a louder version of the unaltered original as possible. I've run some pretty exhaustive comparisons with it up against dozens of other brickwall limiters, some much newer and more expensive, and still to this day nothing ever beats it. It might be the only limiter you'll ever need.
ok, but not perfect.
Distortion at the Bassdrum with higher Gain reduction.
I dont have this experience with other good limiters.
not like it. i made dance music and need monstrous RMS. vote for precision maximizer!
this plug is for soft rock music for jus tcut some peaks.
Yeah people. I suggest you definately better go for the precision maximizer or even better: the Neve 33609 compressor limiter. (WHOHAAA!!!!!) This precision limiter eats up the drums and almost exterminate your kick drum totally. I used this one for more than 2 years and it really confused me and made my mixing time expand a lot.
pasta los graves
en mi opinion , aplasta los graves , esta muy bien para baladas y temas suaves pero para musica techno , disco , hip hop no vale , necesitamos algo mejor para ese genero tipo maxxbas o algo asi , gracias
