Introducing Limiter...

A limiter plugin in VST 2.4 format for Windows 32-bit and 64-bit hosts.

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.
