FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FabFilter announces Pro-L limiter plug-in
Following the highly acclaimed Pro-C compressor and Pro-Q equalizer, FabFilter now expands their line of professional mastering and mixing plug-ins with the introduction of FabFilter Pro-L: a top quality, feature-packed limiter plug-in suitable for both mastering and mixing. Pro-L delivers sophisticated limiting algorithms, highly accurate metering, linear-phase oversampling and dithering, but above all, the uncompromising sound quality and innovative interface design that you've come to expect from FabFilter.
FabFilter Pro-L offers four advanced limiting algorithms, all with their own distinct character. Some are designed to be as transparent as possible, while others may add a nice punch or flavor to your music. Together with the adjustable look-ahead, attack, release and unique separate channel link settings for both transients and release, the limiter can be fine-tuned to achieve both maximum loudness and the highest possible transparency at the same time.
With its highly informative real-time display and excellent meters, the innovative and clutter-free interface makes working with FabFilter Pro-L a breeze. Different meter scales, including the three K-System scales (K-12, K-14 and K-20), will help you to get precise control over your levels. Of course, you can easily disable all metering if you want to judge the sound by ear only.
By enabling Pro-L's accurate inter-sample peak detection, the output level meter will reconstruct the peak levels likely to occur after D/A conversion, helping you to choose an appropriate output level. In addition, the linear-phase oversampling feature minimizes possible aliasing and inter-sample peaks to achieve maximum loudness in the safest possible way. With excellent dithering and noise shaping added to the already impressive list of features, FabFilter Pro-L is the complete limiting solution for every mastering and mixing job.
FabFilter Pro-L is now available for EUR 169, USD 229 or GBP 149, supporting both Windows and Mac OS X in VST and VST 3, RTAS and Audio Units plug-in formats. Bundles with FabFilter Pro-L and other FabFilter plug-ins are also available. See www.fabfilter.com/shop.
