TB Barricade 4 is a simple yet very effective and transparent brickwall limiter that is suitable for individual tracks as well as mastering work. On top of the peak limiter, a soft-knee peak compressor is included with adjustable ratio, threshold, attack and release times. This compressor uses the same advanced envelope tracking technology as used for the peak limiter, providing accurate and musically-sounding compression.


  • Low latency (about 3 ms).
  • Support for immersive channel formats such as Ambisonics (VST3, AAX and Audio Unit).
  • Adjustable input gain and output ceiling.
  • ITU-R BS.1770 and EBU R128 compatible true-peak (inter-sample, ISP) limiting.
  • ITU / EBU compliant integrated output loudness meter.
  • Support of all sampling rates from 32 to 384 kHz.
  • Available in VST2, VST3, AAX and Audio Unit plugin.
  • Variety of different limiter modes.
  • Automatic channel linking and lookahead.
  • Option for automatic release in the compressor.
  • Input modeller to simulate tape, analog console, etcetera.
  • Output quantization, dithering, and perceptual noise shaping.
  • Rescalable user interface with color themes to fit every screen.

Looking for the best limiter to my studio i've tested deep about 20 of them. Including Soonox, Flux, Waves and many other famous. In my opinion this is one of 3 the best.


(this is to have min. 500 charactes in opinion :-)

I just bought the blessed thing, and boy, am I ever glad that I did! I was using Kjaherus Classic Limiter, Aradaz MaXIMIZER 5, 4front W1, and a few others, but none of those were accurate nor transparent enough for me. I realize that if you want professional results, you need to spend professional fees; usually. However, after reading some reviews and comments about the TB Barricade limiter, I decided to give the trial version a go. I immediately noticed a huge difference.

Once upon a time I had a "borrowed" version of Waves L2. (Praise God, I don't use any borrowed versions of software since a few years now.) I was seriously considering saving up to buy a shiny new license for Waves L2, but decided to give TB Barricade a try since it was free trial with the only limitation being that I couldn't save my settings. Well, after playing with it for a while, it seemed every bit as clear and transparent as any of the high-priced commercial offerings. Sure, a $300 Limiter plugin would be cool to own, but for only $20, I got somethin' really, really, clear, transparent, and effective now.

I thank God for Jeroen Breebaart, Guido Scognamiglio, Bootsy, Poulin, and other developers of their ilk, who provide excellent quality soundwares for free and/or affordable prices. God Bless y'all, in Jesus' name. (yeah, I'm a preacher. . lol)

Not a Christian, but will give you an amen to that Brother Charles. I just bought the ToneBoosters All Pack, their complete bundle, and feel like I just got away with robbery. Never heard of ToneBoosters until today. I tried a handful of the plugins and am now an acolyte. Seriously, just insert one of their plugins and you will instantly have better sound. I have recently been getting very close to the quality of sound I've been seeking and ToneBoosters just pushed my sound over that edge--a blessing indeed.
