The idea of saturation in a limiter may seem a little odd, but the XL circuit has a very clever algorithm that subtly does a lot to help perceived loudness. No more limiting the full bandwidth… I now can control xo two brainwrox over… Read More. So, yet another great Brainworx tool, and at a braainworx price too. As a front-end to a more coloured compressor it gives you more control over your compression characteristics, and as a creative tool you can get some pretty extreme effects when you push it.

Let’s look at some of the limiter controls, starting with brainwlrx row of knobs at the top. Perversely, it has the habit of adding clarity to the high-end of sources and can be quite a ‘sound saver’ in certain situations. Manuals Manual English, 4.

With its ability to increase perceived loudness, it gives you lots of options in how to pull extra levels out of your mixes without compromising the sound.

After spending a considerable amount of time with this limiter I have to say that it’s grown on me. That said, you can crank it up for some pretty dirty sounding results, particularly when you dial-in some extreme limiting. Use it to separate the kick drum so you can limit it differently from the rest of your mid signal. System Requirements Display resolution: Often these peaks can be very large, so the resultant overall volume loss is big.

This is what brought it all together for me. These effects can also be blended with the mix control to add some colour and punch. A Master… Read More.
