"Employing logarithmic sidechain processing along with a rather exciting approach to adaptive timing functionality using look-ahead techniques, Oxford Limiter isn't your standard stereo single-band limiter. The designers have thought this thing through from a distinctly musical perspective not one merely set on ultimate loudness at all costs incorporating several key and innovative functions that allow you to be surprisingly creative and artistic with a limiter."more
this is a limiter in the ultramaximizer/finalizer camp (who else remembers finalizer?).... an oldie but a goodie from sony. Has its own vibe to a certain degree but all the digital brickwallers are pretty similar. It can be really useful printed hard on a mix that you fly out to its own stereo bus and bring up in parallel beneath the n-limited multitrack to split the difference and add some of the interesting oxford plugin character.... wanna get silly? try chaining it after inflater. The sony plugins have a sound that's hyper modern and yt unlike the pre-renaissance waves stuff and the McDSP stuff from the same era. I don't use them one very mix but I use them a lot. Been with the Oxford stuff since seeing them advertised in a sweetwater catalog well over a decade ago and I don't regret the expense.
