It includes the following features:
- Input gain control (+/- 20 dB)
- Limiting threshold down to -40 dB
- Hard clipping threshold from -40 dB to 3 dB
- Release control
- Input, output and gain reduction metering
The limiter is a 'soft' limiter in that it does not provide 'brick-wall' limiting. The input signal can exceed the limiting threshold but usually no more than about 0.3 dB. Use the 'Clip' control to set a hard limit at the required threshold if necessary. Set the 'Clip' control below the limiter threshold for some hard-clipping distortion or set it to +3 dB to deactivate it completely.
The limiter uses a 'look-ahead' buffer to manage the incoming signal which introduces a fixed latency of 1.5 ms into the plugin's signal flow.
