    Pendulum Audio ES-8Published on 02/21/10 at 14:33
    The Pendulum Audio ES-8 is a stereo, tube based limiter. It is made up of analog parts and will take up two spaces in a traditional rack casing. I don't know what types of connections it has since the one that I used was already racked up in the studio that I was using it in.

    UTILIZATION

    Each of the two identical channels on the Pendulum Audio ES-8 are generally easy to follow and to use. It has parameters in the form of knobs for input, threshold, output, mode for the attack/release, and depending on which way you set the mode, you've got both a knob for preset attack/release and for manual of each. It also has switches for linking and bypassing the channels. If you've used…

    UTILIZATION

    Each of the two identical channels on the Pendulum Audio ES-8 are generally easy to follow and to use. It has parameters in the form of knobs for input, threshold, output, mode for the attack/release, and depending on which way you set the mode, you've got both a knob for preset attack/release and for manual of each. It also has switches for linking and bypassing the channels. If you've used Pendulum Audio gear in the past, this is a fairly standard configuration. I haven't seen a manual for the ES-8, so I can't say how helpful it would be or not.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The Pendulum Audio ES-8 is simply an outstanding sounding limiter through and through. Not only do you have complete control over your sound, but all of the sounds have a very pristine quality to them. It's versatility allows it to be useful for limiting any type of signal from drums to vocals. It also works very well as a mastering stereo limiter if you want to hit your overall levels with it. The ES-8 is definitely one of the cleanest sounding limiters I've had the chance to use.

    OVERALL OPINION

    With great quality just about always comes with a great price in terms of the amount of dollars spent, and the Pendulum Audio ES-8 is no exception. It will certainly cost you a pretty penny to get your hands on one of these, so unless you're a professional with some dough to spend on a new stereo limiter, this will probably be outside of your price range. If you can afford one of these, you know you have a lot to choose from up in this price range, but I'd highly encourage you to at least do some research on the ES-8, as it is definitely up there with the best of them.
