I have just discovered the Input Gain setting, and suddenly the Saturation button makes sense...

Is this similar to a Soft Clipper... in that it is adding harmonics as the sound approaches maximum?

(I am trying to get a handle on this, and I am using Elephant as well, comparing the too and using them together.  I found the loudness maximiser preset on CurveEQ.)

Is anybody else using CurveEQ as a volume maximiser?


In my opinion Saturation (and Input Gain setting) are pretty weak features of CurveEQ and I wanted to remove them in v2.0, but after some requests I left them as they are.  Saturation is not a brickwall limiter like Elephant, but is look-ahead type too.  Indeed it works more like a soft clipper (maybe a bit too soft).

Well, I am driving it pretty hard (well if +6db input gain).

I'll just have to keep listening but it seems to be working with the music I am mixing.

It can sound quite loud without clipping, thought I course I can tell that it is not transparent like Elephant, but at this stage I am messing around with colouration.

Thanks for the reply.


No problems as soon as it sounds right to you!
