Full Screen mode and resizing

With just a click of the Full Screen button at the top-right corner in the interface, FabFilter Pro-L 2 will fill up the whole computer screen so you can get the most out of the level display and make ultra-precise gain adjustments.

To exit Full Screen mode, just press Escape or click the Full Screen button again.

In addition to Full Screen mode, you can also customize the normal interface size using the Resize button at the right of the bottom bar. You can choose between Compact, Small, Medium or Large. Once you have selected a size, it will automatically become the default size for new plug-in instances.

Compact view

Some people like to judge their limiting by ear only. For that purpose, FabFilter Pro-L 2 offers a 'Compact' view mode. To switch to Compact mode, click the resize button in the bottom-right corner of the interface and click Compact in the menu that appears.

The Compact view doesn't offer the real-time level display, but its level meters have more detail than the Normal view and it offers a large Output knob.

In Compact view, you can adjust the gain and the output level also by clicking and dragging on the level readouts below the Gain and Output knobs. Like with any knob, double-click here to type a value directly.


  • When using the VST3 plug-in, you can resize the plug-in interface by just dragging the window edges to any size you like. Of course you can always go back to one of the predefined sizes with the resize button.
  • The Medium and Large interface options will be greyed out in the Resize button menu if the current display is too small to support them.
