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.

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

Meter with professional accuracy using Bob Katz's "K-system" metering specs

Excellent

A friend who's producer and live act as well recommended the precision limiter to me and i tried it out right away and loved it so much that i ended up buying it. Now after one month i can say that compared to many other limiters from any company it has a beautiful sound and works very reliable. My personal recommendation is using it along with the precision maximizer ;)

Great Tool. One Missing Feature.

I'm happy with this purchase. No question. It has replaced most of the "other" limiters I was using with relative ease, HOWEVER, it is missing one feature. The ability to link input and output gain is kind of a necessary feature in the digital domain because I don't have 2 hands in my computer. In the rack, no problem. In the computer, not so much. That annoyance aside, its just a good clean limiter I will continue to use a lot of on every session. I'm still happy to have added to my collection. :)

Your bass, pour piano, your voice, your drums don't find its place in the mix ?
The answer is : Precision Limiter.
One knob to turn, and your instrument pops up ! Magic !

Good limiter

Works well in a processing chain for Voiceover and master bus. Adds a nice warmth when driven which is what we use it for. Kind of like a fancy saturator but for €99 it’s worth the money.

Final track

This limiter has become my standard for the final mix insert on my output from my daw. It keeps everything in check and has a few useful presets.

Precision limiter a precise plug in

The sound of this plug in is perfect, it improves the detail by highlighting the peculiarities of the sound. Consequently I often use it also on the voice at the bottom of the plug-in chain in order to highlight the detail with excellent quality.

This totally caught me by surprise...

Wow I did not expect that I would enjoy this plugin so much. I just wanted a limiter to put on my master bus temporarily. My plan was to jsut have something there that would prevent clipping, and then as a last step, I would replace it with a "better" limiter. I rarely find it necessary to replace this. Its stupid simple, but I think thats what makes it great. I love that it doesn't take up much screen space. I loge the meter. And i love that I dont get stuck tweaking a bunch of nonsense parameters. This thing is a limiter. And its transparent. Thats it. Don't get fooled by other limiters that have fancier UIs and tons of parameters- all of that is unnecessary.

Ace!

This is one of, if not the finest mastering limiter I've ever used. Musical, no lousy artifacts, while remaining up in volume. A must have!

Essential

Use this on main outs for every song prior to mastering. Doesn’t seem to overly colour at all. A must have…

Perfect!

Чистый, прозрачный и в тоже время агрессивный ограничитель. Просто великолепно! Хорошо отрабатывает транзиенты и ровно усугубляет звук.
UAD, как всегда отличная работа!!!

UA PRECISION LIMITER

Excellent produit, permet de niveler le mix sans nuire à la dynamique du volume tout en évitant la distortion. Bon plug-in et bon rapport qualité|prix (surtout quand on l’achète avec un code promo).
