In this week's Friday Free Plug-in, we are featuring Frontier from D-16 Group. A free limiter plug-in, which is easy to use and sounds as good as it looks.
What Is Frontier?
Frontier is a limiter with auto makeup gain, adjustable release and soft clipping distortion. it’s easy to set up and has a well designed UI with good metering. If you want a alternative to your stock plug-ins and don’t need side-chain filters or an external sidechain input its ideal, though as it has a switchable control input offering left, right or a sum of left and right labelled mid, I was able to set up an external side chain like signal path using bussing, though this was only possible working in mono. Still cool though.
