Audio examples

Whether you want to crank the last drops of gain out of your track or just want to control a few loud peaks, a Limiter can be the weapon of choice.

By looking a little bit into the future, a limiter can make sure your signal never goes louder than you want it to without distorting or destroying transients. Even with the knob turned to 11.

Limiter is one of the devices in the Kilohearts Toolbox bundle.

Product details

The Limiter will prevent the audio volume from going over a certain threshold.

  • Threshold - The maximum allowed volume.
  • Release - The release adjust how quickly the limiter returns the volume back to normal after limiting it due to a peak in the input volume.
  • Input gain - Gain to apply to the input signal before limiting.
  • Out gain - Gain to apply to the input signal after limiting.
  • Current Gain - Displays the limiter's current attenuation.

The Kilohearts Toolbox

Limiter is one of the devices in the Kilohearts Toolbox bundle.

The Kilohearts Toolbox devices all do one thing each, and they do it well. The philosophy behind this is to give our customers access to the building blocks of sound design and from there you can combine them into really interesting effects. In fact, many more esoteric RE:s are basically a few of these effects combined.

If you own a few, or all the Kilohearts Toolbox devices be sure to check out Kilohearts Toolbox Refill, a big pack of diverse combinators exploring the possibilities of the toolbox.

Usability standards

Kilohearts aim to provide Reason users with a wide range of audio effects that all utilize a common form language and interaction model. This allows for a great user experience that is really valuable when working with with big projects.

Stack 'em up!

We have taken a lot of care to make all Kilohearts Toolbox devices as lightweight as possible. This way you can combine many, many effects without taking up too much screen space, or CPU.
