It does appear to be one of the loudest limiters I know of.It relies on “Selective Oversampling” (SOS), to employ oversampling only where it actually improves the signal, and to avoid it where it has been found to compromise the sound. Coupled with its “Advanced Look-Ahead” design, it is able to deliver tighter, more accurate low end and better stereo imaging than any other true peak limiter around, even at extreme settings.
i'm not sure how that would work. How you selectively oversample?
Change oversampling frequency based on amount of high frequencies? Only oversample parts of the plugin (why would that be of any benefit)? Multi-band?
Neither of these feels like increasing transparency tho.
I tested it against Elephant and it's so close to EL-C i managed to get about 15dB of cancellation by tweaking it for 1 minute.
I don't go for limiter alone for loudness anyway, clippers and compressors before hitting the limiter always.
I also don't think it's the cleanest - compared to some Elephant and Pro-L2 algos it breaks up quicker.
I don't think it's -bad-, i just don't find it in any way special.
thanks for the correction. so it kinda boosts the level beside subtle saturation, which is why dynamic profile changes when cranking XL. Not too fond of that - i prefer gain staged saturation when mastering.
