I already have studio quality plugin limiters that I use, but I'm looking for a zero latency limiter more as protection when playing virtual instruments in a live setting. Any suggestions? PSP just came out with one, and I might just go with that unless convinced otherwise.
Zero-delay (brick-wall) limiter is a sort of clipper!

having no clue as to what limiter lives inside your DAW
LIVE10; it's native limiter has a 0ms latency setting
and it's designed for a "live setting"

One of my favorite limiters, but it has 120 samples of latency so I don't think it serves the purpose of this thread.

AFAIK actual zero latency limiting does not exist - physically impossible. You can have low latency or clippers tho.

In the past Loudmax was a 0 latency limiter (like up to version 1.22 or 1.23), I don't know why it has latency added now.

The most likely reason is that it actually had latency, it just didn't report it.

Go with a clipper on your main out. It will at least protect your circuitry. That being said there are lot’s of limiters with no latency, they just can’t have look-ahead processing. It’s as simple as that.
