HorNet launches a Brickwall limiter
HorNet adds to its processing collection the Magnus plug-in, a two-stage brickwall limiter for Mac and PC.
Magnus features a first clipper stage with hard or soft option, for cutting small peaks, then the signal goes to the limiter stage, which threshold is fixed to -0.2dB. Two gain stages are included, the first is very short and the second is longer so that the plug-in can quickly recover from sudden peaks while avoid pumping effects.
The GUI offers a knob for each clipper and limiter feature and you’ll find a release control with values ranging from 1 to 500ms, a tempo-sync Auto-Release button if you’re not familiar with the release feature, a 2x or 4x oversampling switch and meters for the RMS output, the input level of each stage (60 segments) and gain reduction for each stage (10 segments).
Magnus is a VST2/3, AU and RTAS 64-bit plug-in for Mac OS X and Windows, it has a price of 19.90€ and you can download a trial version at www.hornetplugins.com.
