I'm still learning the Funtions and knobs on this device but ,just dumbing down and using presets for a quicfix, does nice results. I also like the fact that you can mix in the compressed signal , which basically achieves parrellel compression without creating a addition aux bus!
Discrete, gentle compression. Works nice just before my L2 on the Master Fader. Works well on mix busses too. Like the Mix Knob (dry/wet) a lot. It's a subtle plugin but does its job well.
Good compressor and you can use it like bus or single track this is very cool and the the usage dsp for are very low so you can have more than one in your project .
Got this to mix through. Adds a certain tightness and punch to my mixes. The mix control is a useful feature as is the filter to stop bass heavy events pulling the rest of the mix level down. A/B'd it to the SSL, and found it to be cleaner with less 'mojo' - I know 'mojo' s preferable in a lot of situations, but when everything in your mix has already plenty, what you need is good clean control. and that's exactly what the Precision Buss compressor gives you.
a nice "glue" compressor, clean and transparent ...
one of the things I appreciate most about this plugin is that preserves the stereo image, unlike other buss compressor software.
As always, it does precisely what it says on the tin...
...however, I'm now beginning to think I should've bought the Precision Limiter instead.
This plug-in operates near silently, unless you really push it to stupid limits, but I still can't tame some snare shots without compromising the track's overall sonics.
That's probably more a criticism of me and my choice of sounds during tracking than with the UAD Precision Buss Compressor.
Ah well, always learning...
I had this plug in for over a year now. I tried it in different situations and with diverse styles of music, I have settled for using it in the main out bus during mixing. As a main bus compressor this plug-in is excels regardless of the music style or instrumentation of the band. I use it for rock mixes as well as orchestral film scores. The sound is clear and transparent and it responds gently to gentle changes in the threshold and attack parameters. I have tried many bus compressors while mixing, including the SSL emulations, I honestly prefer this one. The only reason I do not give 5 stars is because I rather reserve that rating for plug-ins that are out of this world. This one is not quite out of this world, but I use it all the time and it always delivers.
