ClipShifter is a wave-shaping clipping-style limiter that can be used in various points of a mix. It is now in AAX and RTAS beta.
LVC Clipshifter - Free Version
ClipShifter uses what the developer describes as ‘a unique threshold control to change the clipping threshold dynamically based on the transient characteristics of the incoming audio.’
The clipping distortion can be altered to offer various effects ranging from hard, brickwall-style clipping, to softer saturation with compression. Get in deeper and tweak the sdditional parameters to control the even- and odd-order components of the saturation.
ClipShifter is released as a free and paid-for plug-in.
LVC Clipshifter - Paid Version
The paid version adds
- oversampling (2, 4, and 8 times) with selectable double processing,
- mid/side processing, and a 3-way multiband frequency control.
The multiband frequency control can be used to apply clipping to certain frequency bands independently, while the free version applies the audio clipping to the entire frequency spectrum.
