What’s new in Limiter №6 1.0.2:

  • 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

[download]

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.

 

Limiter №6 v1.0.2 Windows/Mac (VST/AU) latest preview

So finally, what’s new in version 1.0.2?

  • New stereo-linking in peak limiter significantly reduced distortions;
  • Numeric parameter values now editable;
  • Less intensive animations to reduce CPU usage;
  • Subtle changes in peak limiter Type I-III modes.

Windows version (32/64-bit, both GUI included):

Mac versions (32/64-bit, VST/AU):

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/18475891/Limiter6-v102-gui2.dmg

AU version release notes:

  • in “Min. latency” mode to refresh host latency compensation you must stop then start playback;
  • if you manually enter numeric parameter value, you should click somewhere on plugin background instead of pressing “enter” key.

PS. I want to give more tests for this version, then release it!
