Whether you want to crank the last drops of gain out of your track or just want to control a few loud peaks, aLimitercan be the weapon of choice.
By looking a little bit into the future, a limiter can make sure your signal never goes louder than you want it to without distorting or destroying transients:
- In gain knob -Gain to apply to the input signal before limiting.
- Out gain knob -Gain to apply to the input signal after limiting.
- Threshold knob -The maximum allowed volume.
- Release knob -The release adjust how quickly the limiter returns the volume back to normal after limiting it due to a peak in the input volume.
- VU Meter -Displays the current input level, the selected threshold, and the limiter's current attenuation.
- Settings panel -Whenever you have your mouse cursor over a snapin theree is a small arrow at the top right corner (not visible in screenshot). It opens a settings panel where you handle presets.
- Enabled checkbox -The small checkbox to the left of the plugin name is a checkbox that bypasses the effect when disabled.
- Resize handle -The bottom right corner of all Kilohearts plugins is a resize handle for scaling the UI to any size. This allows you to get a good view of the controls whatever the screen resolution, and also comes in handy if you need big controls, e.g. when using Limiter as a real-time effect on a touchscreen monitor during a live set. (This is not available when the snapin is used inside a snapin host.).
