Signum Audio has announced the release of the BUTE Limiter plugin, the latest and most versatile addition to their range of the advanced loudness solution, BUTE.
Bute Limiter is driven by a new audio limiting algorithm using a novel approach that they claim to be "the most transparent limiter around. It delivers limiting with a pure, smooth sound that stays faithful to the original while True Peak limiting."
Signum Audio's design approach is intended to make the BUTE Limiter simple to use on individual tracks for mixing or on the final master bus. The graphical user-interface gives users in-depth analysis and readings for True Peak, Threshold and Gain Reduction. Alternatively, a user can collapse the plug-in to a numerical data-only view to save on valuable screen real-estate.
For more creative applications, there is a Pre-Gain to push or reduce the incoming signal's volume, meaning that the plug-in can also function as a maximiser. Included are 5 different release modes to choose from including Linear, Transparent and Pumping, with the option of automatic release time calculation depending on content.
Signum Audio's algorithm guarantees no true peek overshoots and the highest quality linear phase upsampling. This can make it particularly useful for broadcasters.
