Arie Ardiansyah releases Aradaz Simple Look Ahead Limiter (SLAM)

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Nov 17, 2009 - comment 0 comments

Arie Ardiansyah has announced the release of Aradaz Simple Look Ahead Limiter (SLAM), a free maximizer effect plug-in for Windows.

This is another maximizer VST plugin for you limiter freaks. The plugin is based on my older maximizer the Aradaz Maximizer, I just simplified the limiter algorithm, add the look ahead adjustment parameter and replace the character parameter to release.

Honestly, the older Aradaz Maximizer is more transparent than this, but the look ahead feature is very useful especially for bass range music (just set the look ahead to large sample e.g >100 samples and then release at 0 s).

Aradaz Simple Look Ahead Limiter features

  • Maximize, up to 20 dB.
  • Look ahead, up to 1024 samples.
  • Release, from 0 to 1 second.
  • Ceiling, down to -20 dB.

Aradaz SLAM is available as a freeware VST effect plug-in for Windows PC.
