If you’re using master compression on your final stereo buss those peaks can pull at the compressor and cause some nasty pumping moments, so you have to use less overall compression than you want for the sound you are chasing. This is extremely useful for mixes that require powerful bottom end such as dance, rap, techno and rock. Perversely, it has the habit of adding clarity to the high-end of sources and can be quite a ‘sound saver’ in certain situations. That said, you can crank it up for some pretty dirty sounding results, particularly when you dial-in some extreme limiting.

After a few tutorials and videos I figured how to maximize this plug in. Pros Transparent peak stop limiter. Try it and… Read More.

Release and Rbainworx Dim are pretty self explanatory as is the Mix function. On stereo sources this controls how linked the limiting is. Slightly confusing when I first used it. The reason for an output dim is just that should you be hitting 0dB, but then want to EQ after limiting, you can pull back the overall level to give the EQ some headroom. Saturation process that increases perceived loudness levels. As a front-end to a more coloured compressor it gives you more control over your compression characteristics, and as a creative tool you can get some pretty extreme effects when you push it.

This very plugin started it all. These effects can also be blended with the mix control to add some colour and punch. Very useful, particularly on pianos and drums where you want to let the individual sides ‘breathe’ a bit. Often these peaks can be very large, so the resultant overall volume loss is big. The Crossover Frequency slider determines the highest frequency affected by the mid low section. It is the possibility to work with the stereo-image that makes a huge difference.

So far this is my favorite mastering limiter I have used. View All Customer Reviews. I am completely surprised how much volume I am able to get without crushing the dynamics out of my mixes.

The idea of saturation in a limiter may seem a little odd, but the XL circuit has a very clever algorithm that subtly does a lot to help perceived loudness. Manuals Manual English, 4. Having the ability to seperate bands and ‘share the load’ really is the draw card for this unit… Read More.

Brainworx bx_limiter review | MusicRadar

As a peak stop limiter it sounds great because it has no sound – it just knocks off the peaks as you want them. All-access artist interviews, brainworxx gear reviews, essential production tutorials and much more. I was looking for a limiter for my mastering chain and I found that and more with the XL V2.


I have uset quite a few over the years, but this one is just better! Use it to separate the kick drum so you can limit it differently from the rest of your mid signal. When using multiple busses for different instrument groups which then sum to a master bus, it’s easy to get peaks on individual busses brinworx force you to pull back your overall level to prevent overloads. A simple peak stop limiter on a troublesome bus or individual track will save the day, and that is exactly what you get here.

Our Verdict An excellent low-latency plug-in limiter that does far more than its name implies.
