3 words: Vital For Mastering. This is an incredibly transparent, 5 band Mastering Compressor with EXTREMELY good GUI and controls and features such as soloing bands while tweaking. Did I mention the EXTREMELY good GUI and EXTREMELY transparent sound? You must have this!
I always use this during the mastering in Logic and come to very good results with
Great for loudness maximizing without adding to many extra artifacts. The degree of control and type of metering really help get everything dial-ed in and sounding great.
So many noble efforts by highly respected developers have been laid to waste by this plug-in! Nothing comes close to the intuitive ease of use -- and most of all the sound -- of the Precision Multiband!
I can get it to tickle or whup-butt as needed, and it goes right where I tell it to, gets the job done, and has a smoke, before I finish thinking about it.
I guess this one just works the way I do, because it's like an extension of my ear/brain system. I feel very much in control of results.
This thing just makes it all better... The first port of call in my mastering chain to settle my freqs. A great multi band processor is so hard to find, but this one would have to be the best on the market. Transparent compressing is perfect for mastering and required to stay on top of the game.
Probably one of the most perfect mastering plugs you can really buy.
I've used a few MBC in my time, the one i use most is Logics Multipressor.
First things first, what do i hate about it? Actually not much! Not being able to change the crossovers via a drag is miopic (suddenly gets embarassed, can you change it like that?) Having to type in numbers is too clinical, sometimes you just wanna drag it and see if it sounds good!
Overall that is very much my view on this plug; clinical, more clinical than a room full of proctologists.
However, thats not a minus point, it's just simply it's personality.
Most of the time i 2bus through the 33609 because i'm still in awe of how it manages to reduce dynamics so beautifully, but at times i do like to have a little more spectral control, which is of course where the MBC truly comes to life.
So if it's a multiband compo you want get this one! It's pretty much as good as i have heard, just think of it more like a tool that processes sound rather than a piece of musical equipment.
PM Is one of my most wanted plugins ever, I couldn't even dream someday to get my hands on something that sounds like this little dream machine =)
When combined to Precision EQ and Limter this is all i need in the future mastering projects.
This is awesome plugin when used in mastering or as an track FX and i use it on all my mastering projects.
Thank you UA and UAD software team for making this dream possible !
I want to share an interesting experience with the precision multiband with you. Last weekend I had 2 blind musicians in my studio. One female singer and a guitarist. The singer had unbelievably fine ears. She was able to hear different length of guitar cables and recognized the shorter cables to sound more open. When we had recorded their song, we mastered the song with my Drawmer S3 and then with the Precision Multiband. They were talking about differences in 1 dB steps, when they turned the gain knobs at the S3.
They said the S3 sounds warmer and fatter especially in the bass, but they prefered the Multiband. "We cannot describe", she said, "but we like the mix with the Multiband more". Hands down, this story ist really true!!!
I really wish Universal Audio would make other multiband tools with such characteristics in the bass. The optimum would be the openess of the Multiband and the bass section of the Drawmer S3. The bass is also the problem of every other multiband compressor. If you have ever compared the Drawmer S3 with a software multiband compressor, you will know what I am talking about.
Jsem naprosto spokojen. Splnili jste mé o?ekávání. D?kuji
ATTENZIONE !! QUESTO PLUG SUONA DI BRUTTO!! SPACCA.... E' IL
MIGLIORE PLUG VIRTUALE IN COMMERCIO!
This is the cleanset sounding Multiband Limiter I tried! I use the gate for drums and the limiter on the 2 bus! A musthave for everyone - linear mode is amazing! Great work UAD!
I now use this plug-in on every album I master. It is both easy to use and incredibly effective. It is a steel at twice the price.
If there's a plugin I can not work without , this is the Precision Multiband.
It brings some magical things at the song, maybe some glue, even width..
I've never heard some multiband like this.
congrats to uad.
Uad ,you know you do great software and hardware its always a pleasure
thankyou Godders Please can make compatible with AAX for win 7
Well, I've been without a multiband compressor, for a while, and, now I thought, well, I need to order this one. I've heard so much great things about it.
Well, this IS a awesome plugin, that really response on every thing you do, and sounds amazingly good. This will be one of my plugins to go to.
Thanks for great plugin!
When mixing audio for a documentary with old recordings and some degraded audio signals, you will need tools that "do a good job" without adding color to your sounds.
The Precision Multband Compressor is one of the right tools to get it done!
His 5 Bands, the clear signal processing and that nice preview lines are just a few things that makes my life easy.
Believe me when I tell you:
"You will already have many hard work to do in this kind of job and use the right tools may turn you happy when saving your time for Beer"
Just Try!!! I'm satisfied!
ps: Wont you consider to work in a UAD Noise Reduction?? I'll keep waiting for that.
Most happy with it in my final chain. But it works great on everything I have run through it. Very nice Multi. Thanx
Excelente compresor para mastering, control y comodidad en el ataque para cada banda de frecuencia
Extremely flexible. Each band (of 5) can be either soloed, or have its effect on the mix muted. This plug is very clean & usable. Nevertheless, one must still be careful. But because of the MB gates, expander, & built-in band leveling (effectively E.Q.) functionality, this device is QUITE versatile and powerful. Be aware, it does chew up a lot of UAD card CPU.
Some use this device in mastering. I find it a bit aggressive for this use; however, it can provide good results on the 2-buss w/ practice & light settings. I prefer it for specialized channel / group tasks where nothing else works. I wish it had an external side chain; otherwise, the plug-in seems perfect & adds little color, if any.
I've tried a few different multi-band comps, and this one is THE BOMB! It is not for beginners, it is a damaging or as soft as you want it to be. I recently had to re-mix a project that had extremely inconsistent bass frequency saturations, and this plug saved the day.
It is a 'go-to' plug-in. Hands down, the best I have heard.
