A dramatic update to one of the world’s favorite professional limiter plug-ins.

The Sonnox Oxford Limiter v2 plug-in for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces lets you increase the volume, density, and presence of your tracks without losing all-important transients or dynamics.

Featuring the latest generation of Oxford Limiter's inter-sample peak (ISP) detection — introduced for the first time on the UA platform — this powerful plug-in is an essential tool for engineers looking for an uncolored, precise limiter for their masters.

Now You Can:

Get maximum loudness without losing essential transients and dynamic impact

Increase density, presence, and clarity on group buses and masters

Audition and apply TPDF dither for 24-bit and 16-bit output word lengths, with four types of variable noise shaping

Prevent distortion during post-master processing stages such as MP3/AAC encoding

A World-Class Mastering Limiter

A World-Class Mastering Limiter

Conventional limiting in mastering applications has a number of benefits. However, there are less helpful consequences, such as a loss of clarity and detail of transients. The Sonnox Oxford v2 plug-in delivers the hottest levels possible while keeping your dynamics intact.

Goodbye Inter-Sample Peaks

Goodbye Inter-Sample Peaks

Inter-sample peaks are introduced by post-master lossy compression, like mp3 conversion, and sub-optimal listening devices The Oxford Limiter v2 is the only UAD plug-in for loudness enhancement that incorporates the most modern standards for inter-sample peak detection and correction, going way beyond standard brick wall limiters.

Final Fit and Finish

Final Fit and Finish

A final stage processor must provide a comprehensive set of dithering options so that the engineer can monitor in real-time the effects of dithering, and then apply it to their final mixdown. The Oxford Limiter v2 provides both 24 bit and 16 bit output word length selections, using high pass TPDF (Triangular Probability Density Function) dithering, plus four types of variable-depth noise shaping.

Key Features

Professional mastering-grade peak limiting with attack, release & variable soft-knee
Enhance section to increase perceived loudness without gain pumping effects
Recon meter shows reconstructed rather than sampled signal
Auto Comp fixes reconstruction errors without losing overall loudness, while conforming to the industry's true peak measurement standard (ITU-R BS.1770-4)
Comprehensive high-quality dither and noise shaping options
Four variable-strength noise shaping modes for use with highly dynamic program material
Great library of factory presets to get you started

fire and forget

always nice smooth and shiny. does not kill drums' dynamics, but always kills some roughness. In my opinion a bit sweet even with enhance slider @ 0. Good for radio hits, but independent artists would find it difficult to achieve some moods. In some cases Precision Limiter from UA or other limiter may be more suitable. I would give 4,5, but no 5.

L3.. You're fired

Have been looking for a replacement for Waves L2 for years: Something transparent, that just brought the final mix up to todays levels
At first I thought that might be the L3, but sadly both of the "L"s just batter the "L" out of the mix if hit too hard.

Dabbled with others, but none stayed.

Then cometh the Oxford. Oxford stays. L's fired.

I only say wow!

I have tested this plugin on the master of a song and compared it with waves L3-16. This plug-in can make Songs even louder and using it alone, it does the job even better adding magic to the bass. This without eating any native computer ressources. I guess it's the next must-have plugin.

"Beyond" Voxengo Elephant

Previously I used Voxengo Elephant because it is the best native limiter plug-in.
I tried out Oxford Limiter v2 and compared them. Both of them has got the same sound but this is +2dB louder.

LOUDNESS WARS MOVE OVER. I WON

So, I managed to produce a master that was easily a perceived 5db louder than the Halestorm record I was emulating for mastering tone. I began with a Neve MBP out of my Neve console, routed back into my UAD through a Manley Massive Passive, ran that through UAD's Ampeg Tape plugin, put that into Isotope Ozone for some stereo sculpting (yes, I use the NEVE SFE as well, but it only allows widening over one band or all bands. I generally narrow the stereo field to zero on everything under 180Hz and then widen the LM and the HM bands and then leave the High band alone for sparkling clarity on the top without going crazy wide). I also use the eq to surgically remove any unwanted frequency.

Finally, it all goes to ..... you guessed it... Sonnox Limiter V2.

HOLY SHMOKES ANA PANCAKE!

If the track has been sculpted correctly, I can jack this thing UP UP AND AWAAAAYYYYYY and not experience any artifacts. The "enhance" portion...GENIUS! So warm and cuddly. I tend to carve out the 2KH range in a mix to make it silky. This brings that silky finish back to flat and really shines a mix!

If you are using the Neve outboard setup, don't forget to silk your highs and your lows!

Nothing Like It

I was very skeptical at first about making this purchase. Then the magic happened.

Professional quality

I use to use waves plugin L1, L2 or L3 maximizer to do the job, when I demoed this one, to give it a try, I wasn't in a need for change but I have been amazingly surprised by the quality and the impact it can have on the track, it is exactly what I was missing for more professionnal results and I can't now do without. I brought it after the demo ends, when I realised I couldn't get the same thing without. I totally love this product !
