Having crafted and refined your mix, join the growing number of professionals who've chosen the Oxford Limiter v3 to deliver maximum loudness, density and presence - whilst retaining the kind of clarity and transient detail that conventional brick-wall limiting can't.

The Plug-In is a true peak limiter that offers recently enhanced levels of processing and metering accuracy. The result is that you get to see and automatically correct otherwise invisible reconstruction overloads - and conform to the accepted industry ITU-R BS.1770-4 standard.

Whether you're after the Oxford Limiter's hallmark transparency or heavier creative effects, its advanced look-ahead processing and unique Enhance function provide the sample-value limiting and musical boost needed to reliably avoid clipping and confidently increase apparent loudness.

The Oxford Limiter plug-in has been developed from decades of professional audio experience to provide a very high degree of quality and capability 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 offers exemplary performance, whether one is seeking general transparent level control, programme loudness maximisation or heavily applied artistic audio 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 included, 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 is included, with selectable and variable depth noise shaping, which ensures first class mastering output quality in either 24 bit or 16 bit modes.

The Oxford Range
Oxford Plug-Ins are used in an extraordinary range of live and recorded applications throughout the music, broadcast, film and games sectors. Even scientific and forensics projects have benefitted from the sonic surgery characteristic of an Oxford product.

Rather than releasing a vast number of Plug-Ins Sonnox instead concentrated on doing a few things really well. Staple, everyday tools that any engineer can reach for with confidence, sure in the knowledge that using each one's intuitive GUI will result in quick, confident and great sounding mix decisions.

  • Peak limiting with attack, release & variable soft-knee
  • Enhance section to increase perceived loudness
  • Recon meter shows actual rather than sampled signal
  • Auto Comp fixes recon errors without losing overall loudness: conforming to the industry's true peak measurement standard (ITU-R BS.1770-4)
  • Audition and apply TPDF dither for 24-bit and 16-bit output word lengths with four types of variable noise shaping
  • Four variable-strength noise shaping modes for use with highly dynamic program material
  • Full backwards compatibility with previous Plug-In versions
  • Great library of factory presets to get you started
