The HD version, electronic download of the ML8000 Advanced Limiter V6 from McDSP uses two completely separate stages of processing for peak-level audio adjustment. It can be utilized on Mac and Windows computers by producers, engineers, and musicians for applications such as recordings, films, broadcast TV, voice-overs, post-production, and more.
The first stage of the ML8000 features a multi-band limiter with 8 bands of active processing. Each band has its own gain and threshold control. Additional overall band controls include release-time and limiter modes, which are calibrated similarly to the modes of the ML4000 limiter. An additional focus mode provides articulation changes on how each band tracks and limits the incoming signal.
The second stage of the ML8000 is a Master Limiter that recreates a ML4000 limiter algorithm. It also includes a filter design to reduce peak distortion. The 8 bands of processing are controlled from the response plot, large gain faders, and convenient threshold markers for each band's input meter. In addition, visual feedback, multiple metering sources, and an intuitive user interface make the ML8000 an easy choice for your engineering needs.
