Limiting without limits
Like any other fabfilter plugin the first thing that stands out is the beautiful user interface. The visuals in this plugin are so helpful, especially if you're not a limiting expert you can see very clearly what is happening to your audio signal. Not going into all the different functions of this plugin i'm going to say this limiter can sound very transparant and can go very loud without clipping. Although it doesn't have the loudness comparison function the Slate Digital FG-X which is fantastic the fabfilter limiter has my vote. I tried the sonnox limiter, fg-x and some of the well known UAD plugs but the fantastic interface and clean sound make this my go to limiter.
Easy and Visual
This limiter is easy to use and I like it because I can see exactly what I am limiting. It has oversampling that is a must for accurate limiting but which also puts a load on the computer processing. The display scrolls across and shows me the peaks I am limiting and also the average level so I can gauge the loudness I am achieving with it. I generally push 6 or 7 dB into it and shoot for a 2dB max peak reduction. This thing lets me see what I am doing and I like that. Like all fabfilter plugins, it has an impeccable design in my opinion, with knobs and features that feel intuitive. A great product and I recommend it.
