The Flux Elixir V3 Multichannel Limiter Native AU/VST/AAX Plug-In is a true peak limiter designed to increase output level in compliance with ITU0R.BS 1770 and EBU R128 conventions for broadcast, post-production, and mastering. You can select the type of algorithm to do the limiting, and break up the process into up to 4 distinct limiting stages for even more precise control. Input and output gain controls allow you to adjust the levels before and after the signal processing.
A bypass button routes the signal directly to the output stage to transition between the limited and unprocessed signal. To improve workflow, the plug-in features two preset slots, A and B that can be loaded simultaneously with a set of parameters and morphed between using a slider. A global preset of both slots and the position of the morphing slider can also be saved.
The plug-in is built around a 64-bit architecture and utilizes the OpenGL graphics standard to make the most out of your computer's GPU. To reduce artifacts like aliasing, the algorithm utilizes an oversampled reference of the audio to define the gain envelope and then applies the processing to the original signal. It supports sample rates up to 384 kHz, and up to 8 channels of processing at a time.
