LA xLimit II is an advanced look ahead, wideband linked-stereo limiter including ISP (inter sample peak) detection and oversampling. LA xLimit II is the successor of LA xLimit, our very popular look ahead limiter. It offers more control over transients and adaptive release curves. It also adds a second limiter stage for better performance in ISP detection mode. The goal of the design was to cover a broad range of limiting applications in today’s mixing and mastering situations with strong focus on low aliasing.
LA xLimit II is specifically designed for mastering, digital editing, multimedia, and any application that requires limiting of the digital signal with top notch quality and lowest aliasing. LA xLimit II guarantees ultra fast and overshot free response by using advanced look ahead algorithms.
In order to fulfill today’s TV, broadcast and music production requirements LA xLimit II offers True-Peak limiting (ISP) based on ITU-1770 specification and on top of it up to 8x “real” oversampling. Combined with True-Peak limiting reaches even highest production standards.
LA xLimit II includes an advanced adaptive release control system which reduces massively artifacts caused by fixed release times. In order to increase limiting sensitivity both stereo channels can be freely linked/unlinked.
LA xLimit II is designed to be used as last plugin in the processing chain (brick-wall limiting).
