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.

an other limiter
The combinations of the features is unique.
It sounds good, or better it can. The downside : not set and forget because if you dont tweak it can also distort.
A different taste to the Precision Limiter, witch is not so dense but set and forget.
The native version could be the better choice.
Sonnox Oxford Limiter v2 - the best you can buy
Seriously, as with every purchase I tend to do systematic research before I buy stuff. This is very important last piece of puzzle for my master bus. This limiter doesn't create any unnatural artefacts and this is exactly the quality i was looking for. Done! :)
Excellent comme tout UAD
Formidable pour les détails ! Une précision formidable !

Great for mastering
Great sounding limiting for mastering, with great analog punch. Would recommend!
Nothing beats it. I've tried Ozone, Fab L, Waves and more.
Best. Top plugin!
Fantastic, I don't understand how I could work without this unique tool
Very happy with this Limiter, It's crazy cool how good it is, I have a hard time making it sound bad haha Just what I needed, I have other Limiters, and this is my new GO TO PERIOD.
I love this on bass. I'm still learning the ins and outs of this one but, it's top of its class!
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!
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.
