The Oxford Limiter has been developed from decades of professional audio experience to provide a very high degree of quality and facility in programme loudness control and limiting functions. By employing highly accurate logarithmic side chain processing, along with innovative adaptive timing functionality using look ahead signal acquisition, the limiter provides exemplary performance, whether one is seeking general transparent level control, programme loudness maximisation or heavily applied artistic sound effects. Unique processing in the form of the Enhance function provides the sample value limiting needed to reliably avoid overloads in digital workstation environments and allows unprecedented volume and punch to be applied to programme beyond that available from conventional limiting functions. Comprehensive metering is provided which displays not only conventional peak sample value, but additionally allows the user to monitor the true validity of the programme in order to avoid the generation of damaging reconstruction overloads in the target equipment which are often invisible during production (sometimes termed 'inter sample peaks'). A further function allows the user to dynamically correct for reconstruction overloads in real time, thereby achieving maximum possible modulation levels without the risks of producing illegal signals often associated with compression and limiting. Comprehensive dithering functionality with selectable and variable depth noise shaping ensures first class mastering output quality in either 24 bit or 16 bit modes.


Q for Paul Frindle

...affect the metering on the DAW in any way. However you will notice that input meters on things like the Oxford Limiter (and Inflator) do indeed go above 0dBFS, revealing that the plug-in itself has headroom that you actually use in the normal operation of the plug.. In this case it's visible and the...

Universal Audio releases Brainworx bx_masterdesk Classic Plug-In

Anyone using this and care to comment? I have coupons expiring today and may not be able to explore too much. I have the Sonnox Oxford limiter so not sure if there is a big difference between the two?
