Need live recording limiter plugin
Hey gang, what's a good live recording limiter to get (in the form of a plugin)?

Glenn Chan April 1st, 2005 11:14 PM

What exactly are you looking for?

A hardware compressor/limiter to use so your inputs don't overload for live recording. The RNC Compressor from FMR audio is very nice... $300USD or so and very transparent compression/limiting.


A plug-in for use in a computer audio program.

prorec.com has great information on either. It has a review of the RNC compressor (and others) and also reviews of various compression plug-ins.

(To clarify: A limiter is just a particular form of audio compression. The compression I'm talking about is dynamics/volume compression and not to be confused with the other kind of compression like mp3s.)

Glenn, I am looking for a plugin to use with windows based audio editing and compositions programs.

I use a dbx over-easy, cheap (under $200).

What I use:

pzm -> preamp/phantom -> dbx compressor -> canon XL-1 -> Scenalyzer (for the other sound channels) -> premiere pro -> (sometimes audition) -> encore
