Sir Elliot has released Master Limiter, a free dynamics effect plug-in for Windows.
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.
Sir Elliot Master Limiter is available as a free download for Windows PC (VST).
