Limiters, we all love them! We use them on the master, on voice overs, on solo tracks, on everything. WE WANT it to be LOUD! I always was a fan of the L series. The L1, L2, L3 i use and used them in every session I did in the last 10 years. They are tight, easy to use and give a punch like nothing else in the world. In my opinion, they got better and better and the L3 is a monster!
What Limiters do you like? What do you use?
There is a ton of great plugIns around these days, combi stuff like the Izotope series, old analog emulations like Kramer or SSL, the Sonnox Oxford Series, the Maxim + some on board digidesign compressors have additional limiter functions, focusrite d3 can be used as limiters…..and not to forget the T-Racks Brickwall Limiter by IK Multimedia.

Might the battle begin!

    My fav FabFilter Pro-L is missing here 🙁

    • Sorry to hear that, Pete. But that’s why we added other as possible answer. It would be an endless task to list all the limiters. At the end, there’s a lot of personal taste when it comes to chosing the right limiter.

    I do like some of the Waves, but my favorite (I use it on every single thing I do!) is the Massey L2007. Amazing limiter!
