2 opinions about Limiter №6


I’m liking Limiter No.6 more and more. I just finished a test with 6 songs were I used the Pro channel eq, Sonitus comp and Limiter No.6 to master. (…) I created a patch for the eq in pro channel and used the same one on each song ( each track), then inserted Sonitus and Limiter No. 6. I’m actually surprised with how well this worked. I used the Limiter No.6 to basically reduce gain by 1 db on all 5 of it’s processors with the peaks set to zero. Nice loud, transparent, and level sounding group of 6.

(…) Okay, but how does it sound ???

To answer quickly, so-so. The compressor sounds good but the other units… not really. This thing seems to be the quickest way to destroy your signal without gaining any volume at the end. Moreover, there is way too much parameters for no apparent reasons. I mean, great mastering engineers (…) use limiting very little; Why one would need 4 stages of limiting that can apply 4db of gain reduction each in series ?

Overall, the Vladg’s limiter No. 6 did not gave me the impression of a finished product. After 30 minutes of testing, I do not recommend this unit for mastering purposes. On the other hand, I liked the compressor; I would have liked to have it as a separate plugin.I think Vladg would have benefit from taking more time evaluating the design of its unit prior to release it. It contains way too much parameters and stages for something that simply destroy your sound. I guess, sometimes, by trying to do too much, we finish by doing less…

I have my logo

Thanks a lot for all who helped me! I promised to provide my logo for pluginboutique.com at monday, but all who can help me are out for their vacations! So I was a bit in a trouble because I’m not a designer as you can see…

Thanks Peter, Fabien, R.R. Chon and Lee Maslankowski! You’re great!

This is my choice:

Simple ISP peak meter and few tests

This is simple inter-sample peaks (ISP) meter plugin. It is based on Limiter №6 ISP limiter true signal level detector in “precise” mode.

This is how it looks:

VSTGUI 4.0.1 and VST RTAS Wrapper

Developers only information. I did VSTGUI 3.5 -> VSTGUI 4.0.1 port for latest Limiter №6 version to support 64-bit Mac and I (again) have problems with VST RTAS Wrapper on Mac (with Molot I almost solved them in 0.2.168c version if you remember) and Limiter №6 v1.0 worked fine with this wrapper most of the time.

Limiter №6 64-bit Mac VST version preview

I successfully built 32/64-bit (universal binary) VST version of Limiter №6 for Mac OS X. I didn’t test it a lot and also I have suspicion it has problems with RTAS wrapper (didn’t check it yet) but if you want it you can check this version for your risk.

After the moment I can call this version “stable” I’ll update links on “downloads” page.


EDIT: just received notification about this version:

“(…) it just crashed studio one 2.0.6 mac for the first time, when I instantiated it:
I just installed your new version, gui2–no crashes before today on earlier (non64 ) version”
