Voxengo Elephant 4.5 mastering limiter plugin released - Press Release
Nov 21, 2016: Voxengo Elephant version 4.5 is now available for download. Voxengo Elephant is a mastering limiter plugin for professional audio and sound production applications, available in AAX, AudioUnit, VST and VST3 plug-in formats (including native 64-bit support), for Mac OS X (v10.6 and later), and Windows computers.
The “EL-C” algorithm which is the newest addition to Elephant version 4, uses a novel approach to limiting, based on usual compression found in compressors, but applied in a special feed-forward & feedback manner. This mode has fixed internal timing constants making it very easy to setup and use. This mode is not meant to completely surpass and replace the “EL-4” mode, but in some music genres, the “EL-C” mode produces less coloration and less transient distortion. It also has a different release character.
Elephant is a highly competitive plug-in for mastering applications: it features a variety of limiter modes that can be deeply customized, and a comprehensive set of level metering tools, including headroom estimation and K-metering. Elephant's built-in linear-phase oversampling is an important element in achieving high-quality peak limiting and loudness maximization without inter-sample overshoots.
Elephant limiter can be used for mixing and mastering of both stereo and multi-channel music and sound material, at any standard sample rate. Limiting process can be visualized both as gain reduction meter and real-time graph.
