Brainworx bx_limiter review | MusicRadar

After a few tutorials and videos I figured how to maximize this plug in. First up is the Chan nel Link. On stereo sources this controls how linked the limiting is. Use it to separate the kick drum so you can limit it differently from the rest of your mid signal. Let’s look at some of the limiter controls, starting with the row of knobs at the top. As a peak stop limiter it sounds great because it has no sound – it just knocks off the peaks as you want them.

The Crossover Frequency slider determines the highest frequency affected by the mid low section. A Master… Read More. Our Verdict An excellent low-latency plug-in limiter that does far more than its name implies.

All-access artist interviews, in-depth gear reviews, essential production tutorials and much more. With its ability to increase perceived loudness, it gives you lots of options in how to pull extra levels out of your mixes without compromising the sound.

If peaks coincide, then resultant master level is further compromised brainaorx can cause other issues. If you’re using master compression on your final stereo buss those brainwodx can pull at the compressor and cause some nasty pumping moments, so you have to use less overall compression than you want for the sound you are chasing.


I have uset quite a few over the years, but this one is just better! I was looking for a limiter for my mastering chain and I found that and more with the XL V2. I am completely surprised how much volume I am able to get without crushing the dynamics out of my mixes.

Having the ability to seperate bands and ‘share the load’ really is the draw card for this unit… Read More. Log in or create an account to access downloads. After spending a considerable amount of time with this limiter I have to say that it’s grown on me. It braiworx the possibility to work with the stereo-image that makes a huge difference. Slightly confusing when I first used it.

When using multiple busses for different instrument groups which then sum to a master bus, it’s easy to get peaks on individual busses that force you to pull back your overall level to prevent overloads. As a front-end to a more coloured compressor it gives you more control over your compression characteristics, and as a creative tool you can get some pretty extreme effects when you push it.

So far this is my favorite mastering limiter I have used. A simple peak stop limiter on a troublesome bus or individual track will save the day, and that is exactly what you get here. Best used on master trak for final mix.

Moves from subtle enhancement to extreme manipulations with ease. Manuals Manual English, 4. View All Customer Reviews. No more limiting the full bandwidth… I now can control the two bands over… Read More. Release and Output Dim are pretty self explanatory as is the Mix function.



Saturation process that increases perceived loudness levels. So, yet another great Brainworx tool, and at a good price too.

Perversely, it has the habit of adding clarity to the high-end of sources and can be quite a brainorx saver’ in certain situations. With the Installation Manager, you can select, download and install just the Plugin Alliance products and formats you need for your system.

This is the new goto limiter for me.

Very good transparent limiter. The idea of saturation in a limiter may seem a little odd, but the XL circuit has a very clever algorithm that subtly does bbrainworx lot to help perceived loudness. System Requirements Display resolution: Very useful, particularly on pianos and drums where you want to let the individual sides ‘breathe’ a bit. These effects can also be blended with the mix control to add some colour and punch.

Installation Manager Installation Manager v1. This very plugin started it all. This is extremely useful for mixes that require powerful bottom end such x, dance, rap, techno and rock.

Pros Transparent peak stop limiter. The reason for an output dim is just that bbrainworx you be hitting 0dB, but then want to EQ after limiting, you can pull back the overall level to give the EQ some headroom.
