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.

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

A classic limiter with lots of tonal options

This is one of the first limiters that really was able to get limiting to a new level back in the day.
I bought it for my apollo because I really wanted something I can shape the limiting of but in a more transparent way. I use the native version but I really like this on my live streams I do for clients so It was a no brainer.

Why you offer a v2 plugin at a higher cost than v4 on pluginboutique?

I want my money back!!

Reference for preference

Great tool for quick demo or the mix test bounce. Lacking the options available from the competition and a bit outdated , V4 is available out there. But it was on sale and it suits my needs for a quick mixes, good presets.

love the OxLim

versatile and sounds great, I find it pretty transparent at mild limiting amounts if the enhance stuff is left off. use it on about 90% of my masters

The best limiter plugin to my ears

After trying quite a few limiter plugins, this is finally the one I use daily because it's simple and sounds the best to my ears

Oxford scholars!

Every Sonnox/Oxford plug-in I've tried has delivered uncompromising sound quality and makes what I do better. The Inflator and SuprEsser rank as best-in-class plug-ins for their applications. The Limiter v2 is just the same. There's so much flexibility and sonic richness built into it! The best way to describe it is that it "breathes" with the audio. Less than 48 hours after purchase, I used it on an editing project--bullseye. It's also wonderful that when you hover over the various buttons and controls (a feature on all its plug-ins), Oxford tells you exactly what they do and how they work. No more having to act like I know all things audio -- I'm here to learn! Great work Team Sonnox.

Exceptional Limiter

I used many other limiters from other high profile companys, but this is my favourite so far. It's extremely transparent and loud. It has superb clarity. A must have for sure.

Loud as storm!

Oh yes. This limiter pushes up the limits. You can make your mix very loud with it!

Limiter with the highest transparency.

I have used the previous version on other systems and found this UAD version to be even more transparent and articulate than the previous version.
That's wonderful.
