Solid State Logic has launched a new audio plugin that offers a quick and easy way to increase the loudness of tracks, buses and masters without clipping.

Expanding its SSL Complete subscription offering, X-Limit is an essential tool for a range of applications, including recording, mixing, mastering and live sound, given its extremely low latency performance.

“We are delighted at this robust new addition to our plug-in portfolio, giving users another indispensable mixing tool that is both powerful and simple to use.” commented Jon Sandman, Plug-ins Product Manager at SSL. “Whether you are looking for extremely transparent limiting, colour and punch, or classic SSL glue, X-Limit has you covered.”

As with other SSL plug-ins, X-Limit excels at delivering concise visual feedback as well as providing a wide-ranging feature set and sonic options.

The unique steering and ducking meters indicate how the limiting process might influence the stereo image of your signal and provides visual feedback on how to minimize stereo degradation while using the channel link control. Meantime, the all-in-one waveform and threshold display lets you easily set your threshold and ceiling against the incoming signal level.

The new plugin is available in VST/VST3, AU and AAX formats for Windows and Mac, on sale at the SSL store and from Plugin Boutique for $69.99 until August 28th, 2022 (regular $99 USD). Prices ex. VAT where applicable. It is part of the SSL Complete subscription, from $14.99 USD/month.
