Limiter by SoundSpot

"The Velo is just awesome! The interface is slick and easy to use, and the well thought out style options make this limiter an absolute must-have in any producers library! Amazing work guys!!”
Austin Leeds. Ultra, Spinnin, Vandit, Bedrock.

The final plugin to hit your mix will almost always be a limiter, and using the right limiter for the job is crucial to getting the impact your music deserves. The Velo is a brick wall limiter for maximizing loudness, that features different options to influence colouration and transient preservation. As Velo’s adaptive release makes the plug-in react quickly to the incoming signal, it a well-suited limiter for mastering any style of rhythmical music with pronounced transients, and for bus-processing beats, drums and rhythmical bass, guitar and synth parts.

Gain

The Gain control lets you push up the volume, maximizing your track’s loudness up against the Ceiling value.

Sensitivity

The Sensitivity control lets you adjust the range of the plug-ins adaptive release. Set to zero, the limiter will act as a hard clipper, while turning it up will increase the average release time used based on your track’s crest factor. low Sensitivity values will result in a loud and stable track but might cause subtle distortion when the limiter is pushed hard. High Sensitivity values, on the other hand, will give a smoother but less loud result, with the risk of unnatural volume changes over time when the limiter is pushed hard.  

Ceiling

The Ceiling control lets you adjust the maximum output volume of the limiter. For mastering, this value is usually set just under 0.0 dB to compensate for the small volume increase that can occur after converting your track to MP3, and to create a little headroom for intersample clipping.

Style

The Style control lets you adjust the limiters colouration, based on the amount of gain reduction produced by the limiting process. In practice, this means the limiter will attenuate some frequency ranges less and some more, subtly and gradually shaping the tonal balance of your track while applying gain reduction.  

Transients

The Transients control lets you boost your tracks transients before the limiting is applied. The intensity of this effect is dependent on the transient information in your track, as well as on the Gain setting. Keep in mind though, that the Transients feature is mainly used for material with pronounced transients, and might cause subtle distortion with sustained sounds like synth pads or string parts.

Zoom

The Zoom scrub bar allows you to scrub between a real-time fast and slow setting. When you press stop on your navigation the display feed also stops, allowing you to inspect what is happening to the signal in closer detail.

Link

The Link control above the metering, lets you turn on and off the limiter’s stereo linking. Unlinked, Velo will limit the left and right channel separately. Linked, Velo will apply the same amount of limiting to both the left and right channel, fully preserving the stereo image of your track which is important for mastering.
