Flux Elixir Limiter
Elixir is a kind of program limiter designed to accomplish a natural sounding result without altering the nature of the audio material and its timbre.
Intended to fulfil the requirements of the broadcast, post-production and mastering industry, Elixir provides real True Peak output level in accordance with the ITU-R.BS 1770 and EBU R128 norms, and for surround/multichannel operation Elixir provides up to eight channels of simultaneous processing.
User Interface And Workflow
Elixir’s interface lets you set the input level, adjust the Threshold according to the amount of limiting desired, and enable Make Up for gain compensation and loudness addition.
For delicate and fine processing tasks (mastering etc.) Elixir presents a new concept called Stages, providing the option to set the algorithm to perform the limiting processing in multi-stages, in order to achieve more precise and natural sounding results.
Example: If the threshold is set to -3 dB and the ‘Stages’ parameter set to 3, the first stage will limit at -1dB, the second stage will limit at -2dB and the third will limit at -3dB, with analyzing performed in each of the three stages.
The algorithm uses an oversampled representation of the audio sample as reference when defining the gain envelope, while the actual processing is applied only to the original none oversampled data, in order to reduce artefacts (like aliasing).
In addition to Stages, Elixir present the option to run the algorithm in a higher resolution mode with more detail put into the processing, at the cost of additional CPU-consumption.
