The Bettermaker Mastering Limiter is an analog stereo VCA Limiter for studio and broadcast featuring full analog signal path. The audio processing in the Mastering Limiter isn’t done by any digital hardware nor software, it is a DSP unit. Only the control of the parameters and on-board measuring tools are digital.
The Mastering Limiter offers two soft clip + hard clip stages of hardware clipper that allows working on the transients and also protects the following ADC stage from the overloads.

On-board adjustable harmonic feature, consists of two adjustable stereo harmonic generators for even and odd harmonics content. Each generator has variable DRIVE, FREQUENCY and AMOUNT settings to enrich the processed sound.
The digital data for all the measurement tools implemented into the Bettermaker Mastering Limiter is converted by an internal 24bit/96kHz ADC.
The unit can be connected to the host computer (PC/OSX) via the USB. This allows user to control the unit from the Pro Tools session (or any other DAW with suitable plug-in).
The Bettermaker Mastering Limiter can sync to the host session tempo (to set the release time automatically) and transport controls (makes the LUFS measurements easier and more precise). Of course, the unit can work in the standalone mode too, as all the settings are accessible via the touchscreen.
