Precision Multiband is a specialized mastering tool that provides five spectral bands of dynamic range control. Compression, Expansion or Gate can be chosen separately for each of the five bands. The flexibility and easy to follow graphical design of the Precision Multiband make it the ideal tool for the novice as well as the seasoned mastering engineer.

Use the Precision Multiband for anything from complex dynamic control to simple de-essing. Two filterbank modes offer precise linear-phase or minimum-phase gain control; use the linear-phase option for perfectly phase-coherent results, or minimum-phase for a more "analog" sound. Both filterbank modes achieve the magnitude response of a Linkwitz-Riley filter and provide perfect magnitude reconstruction.


  • Five bands of Compression, Expansion or Gate.
  • Gain, Ratio, Threshold, Attack, Release and Bandwidth.
  • Filterbank modes: Linear Phase and Minimum Phase.
  • Band bypass, solo, mute, global parameter copy.
  • Visualization of input levels and dynamic EQ response.

A Note about UAD Powered Plug-ins
UAD-2 and UAD-1 Powered Plug-Ins run exclusively on Universal Audio's UAD DSP Accelerator Cards. All available Powered Plug-Ins are included in the UAD Software Installer/Updater Package; and every Plug-In title has a separately activated 14-day trial -- so users can try before they buy, at their own pace. Once a user decides to purchase a Plug-In, they can click on the Plug-In toolbar "Buy" button, which automatically takes them to the www.uaudio.com website and carts the plug in; or this can be done manually via browsing our webstore. Once the purchase is complete, a downloadable Authorization File is made available. Users simply drag and drop this Auth. File into the UAD meter, and the Plug-In is authorized. UAD-1 users can transfer Plug-In licenses to UAD-2 format for free (one time only). Via Customer Support, Universal Audio also allows registered UAD owners to sell their UAD card(s) with Plug-In licenses, transferring the licenses to the new card owner (subject to Universal Audio approval).

Huge latency makes it unusable for real-time use. Unfortunately, this is the only multiband compressor available for the UAD platform.
