Hi all, I have released a new UGen called SafetyLimiter, check it out:
SafetyLimiter is a “true peak” limiter with 4x oversampling used to compute the signal peak. You can configure the hold and release times to control the tradeoff between recovery time and pumping distortion. Unlike Limiter, it is zero latency and therefore no lookahead (may be a future addition). The DSP behind SafetyLimiter is not complex or magical, but I’ve found it does the job well and sounds more transparent than Limiter especially when pushed hard.
Here’s the Amen break:
First audio amplified 10x and put through a Limiter:
