Intuitive compression, expanding, and gating for mixing and mastering.

The Precision Multiband plug-in for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces is a specialized mastering tool that provides five spectral bands of dynamic range control. Compression, expand, or gate can be chosen separately for each of the five bands for unparalleled flexibility, and the plug-in’s simple controls make it the ideal tool for the novice, as well as the seasoned mastering engineer.

Use the Precision Multiband plug-in for everything from complex dynamics control to simple de-essing. Its two filterbank modes provide tons of uses whether you’re crafting a drum bus for maximum punch, or putting the final touches on the entire mix. The Precision Multiband plug-in is also a top choice of Grammy-winning mastering engineers such as Emily Lazar (David Bowie, Foo Fighters) and Paul Blakemore (Esperanza Spalding, Arturo Sandoval).

Everything you didn’t know you needed

Just like the title reads, make life easier for yourself and just do it already. Why struggle with the rest when you can ride with the best?

Great, but need a bigger UI

It works great, but the UI is too small. The Precision series needs a graphic update to meet the standard industry. On a modern setup, it's so tiny that I have to practically put my nose against the screen.

Great MB compressor

I only bought this plugin because WZRD BLD used it on his mix bus as a precursor to Bus compression. I can say that I like what it does in evening out the frequencies on a mix. Sure other MB compressors could probably do the same job but the added benefit of off loading processing to my Apollo makes it a good purchase for me.

Quick, accurate dynamics and eq!

After using this plug on many, many projects I have fallen in love with it. The work flow is super fast because you have dynamics and eq-based dynamics adjustments in one window. You can solo each band to quickly find problem areas and can adjust everything whilst in a band solo allowing forensic-level frequency screening. Highly recommended. UA…. MAKE THE WINDOW RE-SIZEABLE, please.

Effective and transparent

Another transparent dynamics plugin from Precision does not disappoint. Get yer frequencies under control. A solid set of basic presets to start from is helpful because the interface leaves a lot to be desired and is confusing.

Sharp as razor!

Solid and precise! Shame the window is not resizeable :(

The Good & The Bad

Quick hits to start:
#1 - This unit sounds great.
#2 - The interface is inconvenient so I don't want to use it.
Let's start with the interface. It's too small. The GUI dimensions are tailored for a smaller screen size, and so on larger displays if feels small and cramped. I would suspect it's due for a GUI overhaul like the precision channel strip (which I LOVE), and I would then LOVE this unit.

Because, it really does sound great. I plan to spend some time to see if I can get used to the small interface because it really does do a good job at it's role. Dynamic EQ? You bet. Multiband Compressor? Punchy and controlled. Everything I run through this I can gently nudge or pummel into submission and it always sounds better. Combine gates and compression over multiple frequency ranges? Yes please.

But man, that small display...

Master piece on Master Bus

I´m still learning the tool, but my first tries with this made me happy.

Let "Big Smile" preset give you just that

This thing sounds incredible, even though you can't "hear" it due to its incredible transparency. I am still learning my way around all of the controls but just the "Big Smile" preset alone makes this thing worth every penny. Glues a mix together. Gives vocals a certain realness. An all-around fantastic piece of digital kit that does what it says on the box.

Just might be the best multiband compressor out there

This thing is just perfect for precise taming any unwanted frequency range. It's fast but transparent and super easy to use. A must-have!
