The Collective from Focusrite, a creative hub with a mission to provide top quality plugins to its users and help them on their music making journey, has introduced its latest plugin FAST Limiter.

Completing the FAST Bundle, FAST Limiter is designed to help musicians finish music and get their tracks to a release-ready standard thanks to a powerful AI and deep controls to craft their sound.

This is a mastering tool like no other, avoiding presets, and using AI to apply the perfect settings to the track’s overall sound.

AI analyses audio to carefully select the perfect settings unique to the sound’s characteristics. Musicians can use Reference Mastering to take the key sonic characteristics of their favourite songs and apply them to their tracks.

FAST Limiter features

  • FAST view gives users the best sound easily, with AI doing the heavy lifting and setting parameters unique to the track’s characteristics. Keep in the creative flow and quickly adjust Bass, Resonances, Saturation, and Transients settings to get the most out of the mastering experience.
  • Detailed view presents the full controls for FAST Limiter. Get a solid foundation with a powerful AI and move on to use settings like Gain, Limit, and Speed to adjust the limiter and volume output.
  • Recreate the sonic characteristics of the user’s favorite tracks with Reference Mastering and adjust the parameters in Detailed view to achieve the desired sound.
  • There is a choice of three unique Flavors — Modern, Neutral, or Aggressive — to instantly change how FAST Limiter influences the track’s sound.
  • Users will see how the plugin shapes their sound thanks to FAST Limiter’s unique and intuitive graphic visualizer which responds to changes in real time. Make quick, well-informed decisions, and create professional results that are ready to be heard by the world.
