As I said in my previous Plug-ins I Love For Post article, there is no one clear winner in the limiter category for me. I use both the Nugen Audio ISL2DSP and the Avid Pro Limiter. Especially in the early days of AAX and the lack of DSP plug-ins the Avid Pro Series was a lifesaver and so the Pro Limiter became my preferred limiter and It is on so many of the shows I mix and master.

In the previous part in this series I started to share how my current studio was designed and built, learning from previous mistakes. In this article we are going to delve into the maths of acoustics and get deep into spreadsheets.
The pro audio industry has changed out of all recognition over the last 10 years, no, make that 5 years, or is it 2 years? What ever timespan you consider, the changes are significant!

When it comes to limiter, there is no clear winner, I have two limiter plug-ins I turn to, the Avid Pro Limiter and the Nugen Audio ISL. Both are true peak limiters but until recently the Nugen ISL was not a DSP plug-in. With the release of the AAX DSP version of ISL2, this is back in my favourites list again.
The negligible latency while tracking through UAD plug-ins combined with the quality of the sounds on offer means that for me, plug-ins are no longer a convenient compromise. They can sound better than my amp. Lets look at the options available for bassists.
