Hello Composers! Mike here, with a quick guide on the Best Limiter VST Plugins. =)
Modern music production requires you to not only be aware of the dynamic range and average loudness level.
You must also have maximum control over the peak output level, so that it does never exceed a certain threshold, or even worse…clip!
The champion effect for this is the Limiter. Sometimes it is called a brickwall limiter, simply because it will never let the audio waveform above a certain level.
It can even be called a maximizer, if you intend to push the average level of your music up. Regardless, a high quality limiter plugin is essential to have in your music production arsenal.
But which Limiter VST Plugin (or plugin bundle) should you choose? Well, here is my complete list of recommendations for you (in no particular order):
