Universal Audio Precision Buss Compressor
Typical U-Audio everything works perfect.


See above.


The Precision Buss Compressor is a dual-VCA-type dynamic processor that yields modern, transparent gain reduction characteristics. It is specifically designed to “glue” mix elements together for that cohesive and polished sound typical of master section console compressors. A flexible and intuitive tool, the Precision Buss Compressor is intended primarily for controlling the final output of your mix, but can be usefully applied to a variety of sources from drum busses or overheads to vocal groups, or even as a channel compressor on individual track inserts.
The Precision Buss Compressor’s control set features Threshold, Ratio, Attack and Release, with all parameters specifically tailored to buss compressor usage. The Release control includes a multi-stage Auto Release also designed for a wide variety of program material. Input and Output Gain control is offered with metering for input, output and gain reduction. A high pass Filter is offered for the internal control signal sidechain to reduce the sensitivity of the compression to lower frequencies while retaining them in the output sig- nal. An automatic Fade feature is included, which allows the user to set a cus- tom fade-out or fade-in of the mix between 1 and 60 seconds long. Rounding out the feature set is a Mix control that allows the user to achieve “parallel” style dynamics control, without the need for a second buss or channel.
When Ratio is changed, the Threshold value is updated accordingly:
When Ratio is set to 2:1, the Threshold range is –55 dB to 0 dB.
When Ratio is set to 4:1, the Threshold range is –45 dB to +10 dB.
When Ratio is set to 10:1, the Threshold range is –40 dB to +15 dB.
Slower release times can smooth the transition that occurs when the signal dips below the threshold, especially useful for material with frequent peaks. However, if you set too large of a Release time, compression for sections of audio with loud signals may extend to lengthy sections of audio with lower signals.

Universal Audio Precision Buss Compressor
UAD is therefore exemplary of simplicity


I spent much time looking for a compressor vst drinking, I really tried a lot, and I must say that I finally find my happiness!

it is absolutely wonderful, Completely transparent, much more specific on the Waves SSL (I mean not even the API), music and much more intuitive than the Sony Oxford Dynamics

the others are very good at FTD but also much less versatile (because very typs)

also a big plus: it offers 2 rglages hyper practices: the adjustable filter which does not touch the bottom of the mix signal and the dry / wet compression for PARALLEL without unnecessary routing


Mieu is the advantage of a promotion compatible with this plugin in the shop UAD (they change monthly)

I could pay $ 120 instead of 200, but even that price when you see those waves or else worth
