Sonnox® Oxford Limiter v2
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
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
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
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.

The Band Can't get enough of this
The band wants me to slap this on all our older mixes now, thanks UA, I love the clarity and can't wait to try on mix groups too!Read More
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

This is the best limiter I’ve used, it leaves the others in the dust. Cons: the GR metering could be improved - most audio pros are not applying 18db of GR, we need metering showing the first few db’s of GR in closer resolution. Shame it doesn’t have a equal loudness bypass feature like others on the market. But that said it’s simply the best so these things are very minor observations.
Makes mixes loud and beefy. Tonal variety with the knee and enchance faders.
A Must have Bench Mark Limiter
I am still discovering all it can do comparing to my other limiters, it stands in a very special category. More transparency more punch was what I was searching for. It is a real good sounding limiter that I can really on. It is slowly becoming my go to Limiter.
How did i mix till now ?
Can't understand how did i mix till now without this buddy on the master.
I think this is the best that can be used to edit loudness and peaks.
Disappointed that I have not tried it before.
da kann man nicht mäckern.. ich liebe ihn
als Master Limiter erste Klasse
Surely the Best limiter on the market...
Nice plugin I used at the end of mastering process
Just getting to know this excellent plugin from Sonnox. Seems to be more than capable of taking your mix to the next level. Very pleased so far.
Best transparent limiter in the game
While Fab Filter L2 is an amazing limiter, this one takes it to another level it is my go to Limiter for my Mastering Chain.
Warm and flexible limiter
The best thing about this Limiter is you can adjust the relative loudness to match your songs with each other while keeping the same overall output level (for loudness penalty).
I tested this plug-in on my mixing bus while I was on the look-out for a new limiter - with transparency being the single most important requirement for me. While, with regard to medium and low frequencies, the Sonnox OL V2 is absolutely transparent, it does add a tiny amount of treble to the overall signal - unfortunately.
"In your Face"
Wow, make the sound more open and louder without making the sound dead.
This is the Plugin you all searching for.
