I'm a little bit confuse on the way this limiter works. I'm used to have an output setting and an treshold setting, here on the Pro L2, from what i'm reading, the two are linked.
So if i just want to set an TP celling without changing the overall gain of my mix let's say to -3db TP. I've to set the input gain to +3db and the output gain to -3db right ?
if this is right, i'm a little bit worried about the gain stage. If Pro L2 is boosting my mix then limiting it then lowering the final output, doesn't it make it limiting more than it was needed ?
On a busy part of the mix with an average level at nearly -3db, the +3db on the input will make this part go above -3dbTP thus triggering the limiter.
Am i understanding this correctly ?
