"Molot" and "Limiter №6" plugins page (and Tokyo Dawn Labs stuff too)

Molot 0.3.1 and Limiter №6 1.0.2 with AU support were released

What’s new in Molot 0.3.1:

  • Output and editing of numeric parameter values. (Editing not implemented in 32-bit AU version)
  • Fixed wrong mode in some presets.
  • Fixed filter used in linear phase oversampling mode.
  • Added “dithering off” option.
  • Fixed working with VstToRTAS.
  • Added AU version.
  • Added support for 10 times attack time scaling.
  • Changed limiter code (based on Limiter No6)


What’s new in Limiter №6 1.0.2:

  • Less intensive animation (to save CPU cycles);
  • Stereo-linked mode in peak-limiter was significantly improved;
  • Numeric parameter values now editable (excluding 32-bit AU version);
  • Modes I-III of peak limiter were slightly changed;
  • AU version added


AU version release notes:

  • To refresh DAW latency compensation when plugin latency is changed, audio must be restarted (stop/start);
  • Limiter №6 changes its latency in “Min.latency” mode;
  • Molot changes its latency when switched between “HQ” and “Fast” oversampling modes.

    Hi, thank you for such a wonderful plugin!
    I always experienced slow VU graphics on Limiter 6, but now after this update i have this same problem with Molot😦
    I like the Gui very much, but for now ill stick to the GUI´less Reaper menu.
    I work with Reaper 4.32 on a Mac OS X 10.6.8

      “I always experienced slow VU graphics on Limiter 6 but after update it works just fine!” – that’s what I wish to read🙂

      Actually, this is really really strange…

    Maybe this will help you a little bit: I only gets slow when the VU arrow moves, otherwise its ok.

  4. Artyomca 2013/02/16 at 14:51

    Now the Limiter 6 works too! Thank you!
    I have tested both Gui , Au and Vst. All work fine.

    I tried 3.1 molot but I don’t think the limiter works on post version anymore, or maybe it never did – I turned it down to -12 but no change to the output (mac vst).

    • vladgsound 2013/02/16 at 22:16

      That’s not good. And I don’t have Mac around me to check it until monday. Could you: 1) open “extended parameters” and set “Limiter” to “Post”, 2) set limiter to -12 dB and output to +12 dB, 3) set compressor threshold to 0dB, 4) check that you have signal but limiter lamp doesn’t flash?

      • Artyomca 2013/02/17 at 01:15

        No problems here, the limiter section works as it should.

      • sokr 2013/02/20 at 13:26

        hmm maybe it does work, just not how i expected it to. i thought “post” would mean the limiter was after the makeup – like a standard limiter/mazimizer. I think you have it inserted after the compressor but before the makeup.
        also the numbers on the dial are kind of confusing to me – when i set it to “input” how come it goes all the way up to three in the red, when in my DAW it’s only peaking at 0?

      • vladgsound 2013/02/28 at 16:24

        Input VU meter is calibrated to 0 dBVU = -18 dBFS. Your DAW peak meter become red at 0 dBFS. I suggest to use gain staging and don’t make audio signal to reach VU meter red zone. There was long and boring thread on gearslutz: http://www.gearslutz.com/board/so-much-gear-so-little-time/463010-reason-most-itb-mixes-don-t-sound-good-analog-mixes-restored.html (also there were some short articles about this)

      • sokr 2013/02/20 at 13:47

        I just compared it to the older molot – seems like the input meter is indeed off on the new version. also i notice that both limiters when set to “pre” seem to light up even when the signal is actually around 1 or 2db lower than the limiter threshold. For example – input signal peaks at -1db, limiter is set to pre and 0db. Limiter is still lighting up.

        Hope this all helps. I think Molot is a really good product!!!

      • vladgsound 2013/02/28 at 16:17

        Limiter uses some signal level prediction to minimize latency. So it can start to operate a bit earlier.

    hey vlad!
    first, thanks for your great plugins!

    I want to report a problem i experience with Molot on OSX 10.5. the plugin is not recognized by my DAW, even though it is in the same folder with limiter no6, which does work.

    do you have any idea what i am doing wrong?
