Limited-T by LVC Audio is a straightforward, yet versatile track and buss limiter that allows users to add a wide range of pleasing color that ranges from digital clarity to analog warmth via the X/Y controller. This plugin successfully captures the nuances of vintage compressors and limiters without having to heat-up any tubes. Despite its ability to add warmth, it's fairly transparent — any added tonal characteristics are gentle and help work wonders on busses. The plugin is responsive, and it's very easy to finely adjust the output ceiling to provide protection without flattening the track into oblivion. I demoed this plugin on a dynamic vocal track, and with little effort I created a smoother track with a constant level — the tracks peaks were sculpted without any obvious loss of dynamics. I pushed the levels to the extreme and avoided clipping and digital distortion. I especially like the following features:
Easy to use, yet versatile.
User-friendly, modern GUI.
X/Y Pad is fun for tweaking.
Provides the glue needed to cement busses.
Cool developer — inventive and responsive.
This might be an odd request, but how about a randomizer to generate a variety of possibilities?
For tracks and bussing, I think it's important to have the ability to make some adjustments according to the needs of that specific segment of audio. Limiting while mixing can be tricky — it creates safety, but often at the cost of musicality. Limited-T makes it easy to use sparingly or heavily after recording the tracks. Regardless of where and when — Limited-T delivers. I highly recommend this plugin to anyone tracking digital audio. For those looking for something to master with, LVC released a mastering limiter plugin that pairs up nicely with this plugin — both being sold at a great price. For performance and value I give Limited-T an unlimited thumbs up.
