Hi Alexsey, I've always been reading these forums as im interested in Mastering Plugins,and im wondering if you have any plans to compete with the new UAD Limiter in the sense of retaining Better Bottom end as well as being able to get as much level with your Elephant Plugin as i've used my friends UAD Limiter (Demo) and Your Elephant2 (Demo) and to my ears the UAD Retained more overall sonics than the Elephant2 as it handled the Bottom end better. Love Your pricing don't mean to start a war or anything but im wondering if you have got something under your sleeve comming up to compete and wipe out UAD's New monster.
Im a Fan who will be waiting for your next Gem to buy!!
I'd like to confirm what fac said... Soniformer is particularly good because you can very easily tweek the input slope setting to adjust the overal bass/treble balance.
Given that you probably need some form of compression before you limit, Soniformer is an excellent choice.
Is UAD Limiter multiband, because that could make a difference, or at least many think so?
One final thing with Elephant, if you use the DC filter, set it as low as possible, because even though it has a steep filter slop, it will still eat into your bottom end a little. I usually use values between 16 and 20.
And for my $0.02 regards to Elephant itself, I like the clean sound. I am not going for 'loudness at all costs' but boosting around 6dB I find excellent. Minor tweeking of the input dB is all that is required to match loudness across tracks without effecting the overall sound. I am lazy, so I mainly use AIGC3. 6dB should be about twice as loud in theory, so that is probably enough in my books.
