Voxengo has launched an update to its Elephant mastering limiter effect plugin that delivers limiting and loudness maximization without audible “fuzz” and “pumping” sonic artifacts.

Elephant is a highly competitive plug-in for mastering applications: it features a variety of limiter modes that can be deeply customized, and a comprehensive set of level metering tools, including headroom estimation, EBU R128 and K-system metering. Elephant’s built-in linear-phase oversampling is an important element in achieving high-quality peak limiting and loudness maximization without inter-sample overshoots (true-peak limiting).

Changes in Elephant v5.2

  • Added the “Spectrum, meter border” palette modifier and “Threshold line” color, visual features. The “Flat Panels” global settings is now a part of color scheme’s visual features. Updated palettes.
  • Made a small speed-up of GUI loading and drawing.
  • Reduced visual tearing on Windows.
  • Fixed an issue with popup-menus not functioning in Logic Pro on Apple M1 native.
  • Added the “Auto Oversampling on Render” plug-in setting which forces “Auto” oversampling in all instances of this plug-in on render/bounce.
  • Implemented “Portable Setups” support (portable settings and authorization storage), read more in the Primary User Guide.

Voxengo Elephant for Windows and Mac (VST/VST3, AU and AAX) is available from the Voxengo store and at distributor PluginFox.
