About FabFilter Pro-L

The limiter is an indispendable tool in modern mastering and mixing, and there are a lot of different flavors available on the market today. Some limiters try to be as transparent and 'safe' as possible, while others are designed to just go loud. One limiter may work best on rock music, while another performs best on electronic dance music.

FabFilter Pro-L is a professional brickwall limiter, that combines all these flavors and qualities in one plug-in, making it suitable for any type of music/audio. It can be as transparent as needed, and can go as loud as you want it to go. Equipped with excellent metering, oversampling and dithering, Pro-L is everything you need in a limiter.
