The guys will be releasing the finished version of their ISL True Peak Meter at IBC tomorrow and we have been given the exclusive heads up of the release of their True Peak Limiter plug-in which has been in public beta for a while, and has become my limiter plug-in of choice. This is what they say…
Finally, there is no need to second guess your sample-peak limiter time and time again, or deliberately increase headroom to avoid a downstream problem. Now you can simply dial in your True-peak limit and let ISL take care of the rest.
ISL is a transparent look-ahead limiter designed to allow you to get on with creative audio production while it takes care of True-peak compliance for you.
ISL uses the standardised True-Peak algorithms of ITU-R B.S. 1770 and related standards and is suitable for the control of audio for Post Production and Broadcast applications. True Peak limiting can also be used to ensure that down-stream Codecs (mp3, AAC etc.) do not introduce distortion into the signal.
- Loudness compatible limiting
- Protect against distortion introduced by lossy codecs
- Don’t guess, set TP limit directly from the specification to ensure compliance
- Mix with your ears, ISL takes care of the rest
This is what I said about it…
‘It simply does what it needs to do without fuss and without colouring the sound. I have recently finished a “Between The Ears” programme for BBC Radio 3 and as it involved a lot of sound design it was an excellent programme to try the ISL limiter out - its great and completely transparent. I deliberately tried pushing it hard and it just works even with way more gain reduction than I would normally ever consider using in this context. The NUGEN Audio ISL True Peak Limiter is now my limiter of choice for all my broadcast work.’
I have made two videos for them to use on the stand at IBC but you don’t need to go to Amsterdam to see them, they are here on Pro Tools Expert. The first one, at the top of this article, is an explanation of what intersample peaks are about and an overview or how the plug-in works. The second video below shows how you can use the plug-in in a range of workflows.
