I would like to introduce Sir Elliot’s Master Limiter
Sir Elliot’s Master Limiter offers a pre-compressor to fine tune the dynamics to achieve the best quality in terms of sound when maintaining the levels within a certain decibel range.
Like the Universal Compressor, the Master Limiter is optimise to perform best on higher (88.2, 96, 192, 384 kHz) sample rates files however, will have no problem operating on lower sample rates such as 48 and, 44.1 kHz
The Master Limiter offers no delay, which makes it ideal for mixing in real time using digital production consoles that accept VST plug-ins and, Live Professor.
Power consumption is 3.5% using a 44.1 kHz wav file and, 8.0% on 88.2 kHz residing on a Pentium 4, 2.8 GHZ CPU. The concept of Sir Elliot’s Master Limiter is to achieve a loud master without your computer overloading during the process due to excessive CPU usage.
The video below shows how the Master Limiter performs on Rock Material driven to its limits.
Such levels are not my cup of tea. Having the continuous average levels offering – 6 dB will offer the best sound without any distortion. However, if you must know how loud the Master Limiter can go on Rock Music, this video will show you.
As with any audio amplifier, the harder the Master Limiter is driven the louder it will become with added distortion. I would imagine how much distortion one is willing to tolerate in order for a few extra decibels is solely on his or her judgement.
If you would like to use Sir Elliot’s Master Limiter, you are more than welcome to use it as long as you like.
