True Peak Limiter

Postby Larry Elliott » Sat May 25, 2013 06:38

To those of you doing post work - what are you using as a True Peak Limiter? I am mixing the audio for concert video and want to be certain that TP does not exceed 1-dB FS. Many thanks
Larry

Hi Larry,

I've been using the Flux Elixir for a while now, and it's excellent. I haven't heard any unpleasant side-effects, and while you probably want a fairly powerful computer to run all 5 bands, it works just fine using fewer bands.

Cheers,
Tom

I've found that Voxengo's Elephant to be effective and very transparent. While it's not a True Peak Limiter per se, it will not pass any peaks above the set level, provided you apply any amount of Knee.

A thrifty alternative...

The Flux Elixir is a true peak limiter and shows the least timbral shift of any that I've tried. It's only shortcoming is that it doesn't 'soften' transients when being pushed into several dB of sustained limiting, so can sound harsh under those circumstances. FabFilter Pro-L and Elephant are better at this but they both also have a 'sound' that I don't always want.. My context for this is mostly applicable to ultra-loud pop music.

Hi, all,

I agree with Mister graemme. Flux Elixir (French Company :D ), very good, "natural" but I do not know limiter 100% natural.
(A little Info: in a few months, there will be new excellents VS3 Flux plugins).

Best regards,

Bernard
