New Precision Limiter, UAD-1 Upgrade from Universal Audio

September 1, 2004

Universal Audio announced the new UA Precision Limiter plug-in for the UAD-1 DSP Card. A fully functional 14-day demo version of the Precision Limiter is available as part of the free v3.6 software upgrade for UAD-1 downloadable immediately from www.uaudio.com. Registered UAD-1 customers at my.uaudio.com can also purchase a fully authorized version of the Precision Limiter.

"We spent considerable time researching both the audio processing characteristics and metering/ballistics of the world's best mastering limiters to ensure our own UA Precision Limiter was perfectly-tuned for maximum transparency and sonic integrity," said Joe Bryan, VP of Engineering for Universal Audio. "The UA Precision Limiter with its new, proprietary UA algorithm, leverages the floating-point, vector processing power of the UAD-1 DSP to allow up to 10 stereo instances at 44.1k, and of course, like all our other UAD-1 plug-ins, it performs its magic all the way up to 192k sample rates and is compatible with VST, AU, DX or MAS based software applications."

The UA Precision Limiter is a single-band, look-ahead, brick wall Limiter and achieves 100% attack within a 1.5ms look-ahead window, which prevents clipping and guarantees zero overshoot performance. Both the attack and release curves are optimized for mastering, along with other key features including an intelligent Auto-Release and the unique Contour Mode switching which delicately tailors the attack shape to subtly control "presentation". The Precision Limiter also features "K-System" compliant metering with simultaneous RMS, Peak Metering and adjustable Peak Hold.

The UA Precision Limiter is designed as a colorless, transparent mastering limiter and therefore no up-sampling is used, nor does the UA Precision Limiter pass audio through any filters. Audio remains pristine and untouched unless the compressor is working, in which case, only gain is affected.
