Blue Cat Audio Releases Protector – Brick Wall Limiter Plug-In For Windows
Blue Cat Audio has released Blue Cat’s Protector, a stereo brickwall limiter plug-in for Windows with adjustable dynamics response. It is designed to drop into the master bus of your DAW to protect your audio output from overshoot, limit the general volume and improve the perceived loudness.
Despite its very simple set of controls, it offers a wide range of sounds and it is also suitable as a track limiter for more creative effects such as distortion, pumping or heavy limiting. Beyond its dynamics processing features, Protector also offers side chain capability with its MIDI CC output. This unique technique not only lets you do side chain limiting but also parameters modulation: control any parameter of any plug-in to create powerful side chain effects in real time.
