Signum Audio releases BUTE Limiter ultra transparent true peak limiter


Signum Audio has announced the release of the BUTE Limiter plugin, the latest and most versatile addition to its range of the advanced loudness solution, BUTE.

BUTE L Atmos

Signum Audio’s new high-end limiter promises to deliver “high fidelity, ultra-transparent audio quality with incredibly sleek usability”.

Bute Limiter is driven by a new audio limiting algorithm using a novel approach that claims to be “the most transparent limiter around”. It delivers limiting with a pure, smooth sound that stays faithful to the original while True Peak limiting.

The BUTE Limiter prides itself on how minimalist it is. Signum Audio’s signature approach to “clean yet comprehensive” UX design makes the BUTE Limiter incredibly simple to use on individual tracks for mixing or on your final master bus. The graphical user-interface provides extra peace of mind, giving users in-depth analysis and readings for True Peak, Threshold and Gain Reduction. Alternatively, you can collapse the plugin to a numerical data-only view to save on valuable screen real-estate.

For more creative applications, there is a useful Pre-Gain to push or reduce the incoming signal’s volume, meaning that the plugin can also function as a maximiser. Included are 5 different release modes to choose from including Linear, Transparent and Pumping, with the option of automatic release time calculation depending on content.

Signum Audio’s algorithm guarantees no true peek overshoots and the highest quality linear phase upsampling. This makes it particularly useful for broadcasters and anyone serious about loudness.
