Limiter settings

  • Threshold - the level (in dB) at which the limiter becomes active. The limiter will reduce the picks above the specified threshold.
  • Post-Amplify - the amount of post-amplification used after the limiter has been applied. This will allow you to restore the original sound level after applying the limiter.
  • Equal gain for channels - this option allows you to apply one and the same gain ratio to all channels. Enable it to avoid changes in the stereo balance of the output audio.
