Oxford Limiter v3

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 price of the v3 Limiter hasn’t changed from that of the original Plug-In and the upgrade is free to registered users of the Native/HDX Generation 5 (G5) products. If that’s you, then download the new installer here.

There’s something about the plug-in's low end that’s indescribable – it’s totally unique
