A.O.M. has announced the release of the third generation of the Invisible Limiter series, bringing significant updates for the fundamental limiting algorithm and oversampling engine.

Supporting modern mastering technique, Invisible Limiter G3‘s limiter features have been refined and reorganized from the previous generation.

The goal of multistage peak limiting, frequently used in modern mastering process, is flexible peak envelope control in intermediate limiting stages. Soft Limiter section is a sophisticated toolset built for control of peak envelope. Unlike a conventional compressor and limiter, the Soft Limiter has large capability and flexibleness of peak envelope shaping by analyzing direct waveform instead of signal energy. Since Soft Limiter does not enforce brickwall limiting, users can place Invisible Limiter G3 at intermediate position of their mastering chain for peak envelope control.

The brickwall limiting algoritm has been refined from Invisible Limiter G2. It reduces many undesired side-effects such as narrow stereo image, signal smearing, spatial orientation change and groove alternation. Invisible Limiter G3 enhanced its reduction curve shape adjustment feature from G2. It supports curve bending on time axis.

Invisible Limiter G3 for Windows and Mac (VST/VST3, AU, AAX) is priced 22,000 JPY ex. VAT.

Additionally, A.O.M. plugins have been updated to version 1.15.0, fixing a bug where all presets had disappeared (introduced in v1.14). The the update also includes the following improvements:

  • All Plugins: Support unbounded drag operation on knobs.
  • Invisible Limiter G2: Reduce CPU load by 37% (typical) in Modern III, IV, V modes.
  • Nu Compressor: Reduce CPU load by 4% (typical).
  • tranQuilizr G2: Reduce CPU load by 46% (typical).
