MMultiBandLimiter by MeldaProduction is a brickwall limiter that pushes the limit by adding some tasty flavor. During my research, I discovered many plugins that could make music louder, but this one goes much further by increasing sound character and quality without adding a lot of unwanted goo. It not only raises the volume level, it also improves the sonic quality of a track by adding analogue-type saturation and balancing the spectrum. MMBL has a streamlined interface that features a basic page with four big knobs (drive, distortion, squash, master), a column of options (maximizers, number of bands), and an easy-to-read meter. Advanced features and micro editing are found on a secondary edit page, including one of my favorites — spectral smoothing. I wish I could trust my ears to smooth things out, but I'm a visual person. With this plugin I can see the music loudness levels and that really helps me sound design, track, mix, and master.
Bi-level interface with a simple mode and advanced "edit" mode.
Randomization, which helps generate new parameters.
Safety limiter to prevent unwanted spikes and distortion.
Easy preset management.
Lifetime free updates.
Militeristic, unattractive GUI.
When I'm on-the-fly with sparks shooting off my fingers and smoke coming out of my ears I can quickly and easily turn those big fat knobs until I get the desired results. And, when I'm fine-tuning, I can go to the edit page and tweak to make precise adjustments. This limiter is easy to use, powerful, and sounds great! What more could I ask for? It's priced fairly, and is a steal if purchased as part of a bundle. I highly recommend MMultiBandLimiter to any eMusician, producer, or sound designer, who is looking for a limiter that does more than make things louder. I give MMultiBandLimiter two unlimited thumbs up.
That was just cockpit error. I guess 64 bit means to them a 64 bit VST host not 64 bit Windows. It's a complicated beast and will take some time to master (pun intended) but using just the ultra 1 default settings I'm amazed at the equalization induced severe overdrive problems it instantly and cleanly (pristinely?) solved for me. Sale made with 5 minutes of use and it's far from cheap. A perfect example that in this domain at least you get what you pay for.
