I was shocked to see a review with only 3 points. I still use them and I'm pretty happy with them. Some years ago I might have given them 9 points, now only 7 as there might be better alternatives now. If gently driven, loudness maximization of a few dB isn't a problem and the saturation - even if it's not the best on the market - is still pleasurable. Of course they shouldn't be driven to the max but that's the same with all brickwall limiters. If you want to make a square wave out of your song, better use a Waveshaper! :p

I don't understand the hype Nomad places on these processors. Most NF plugins do their jobs well, some exceedingly well, and then there are dogs. This series is a dog.

There are two aspects to these processors - perceived volume, and tonality. Neither are very good with AMT, in my opinion.

I find the dynamic adjustments ineffective and weak. If I'm going just based on sheer volume increase, then Tomas Mundt's LoudMax, Steinberg's Max plugin, and Logic's Adaptive Limiter are far more effective. I can't get my buss mix as loud with AMT plugins as I can with the others mentioned - without distorting unpleasantly.

Tonally, they are harsh.

I have tried to stack these processors against others multiple times, and they always end up at the bottom of my tests.

I want to like them, they look fantastic, but the sound is more important and they just don't sound good to me.

This is an interesting little unit actually. Iv found when used lightly it can really ad something to a mix when mastering.
