Top 5 Multiband Limiter Plugins 2023

Top 5 Multiband Limiter Plugins | Integraudio.com

Today’s article will discuss multiband limiters, the differences from multiband compressors, how they work, and our top 5 picks for multiband limiter plugins in 2023.

What Is a multiband Limiter & How Does It Work?

A multi-band limiter is a signal processor used for mastering that divides the frequency spectrum into independent bands. You will be able to split your spectrum by staging a crossover between the bands.  This plugin is used to get a smoother limitation and avoid distortion or saturation when limiting.

The difference between a standard limiter and a multiband limiter is that the second allows you to limit each frequency range separately. In contrast, the former will limit the whole signal equally.

In a multiband limiter, you will find the same parameters as a regular version: threshold, out ceiling, attack, release. The main difference is that you will have to stage a crossover to split the frequency spectrum and limit the EQ bands individually. Once divided, you will get dedicated limiting settings for each band. Using these kinds of limiters will give you more control over your tracks and provide a cleaner result.

But, how do you use a multiband limiter? Once you’ve placed the plugin in your track, you will have to split the spectrum with a crossover. Some limiters will have a fixed amount of bands, while others will give you the freedom to decide how many frequency ranges you want to have. Each track has different needs; however, we advise you to set a minimum of three frequency ranges, lows,  mids, and highs. After staging the crossovers, you will have to set the threshold, attack, and release time for each band to apply the desired limitation. Lastly, don’t forget to set the out ceiling at -0.3 dBfs or less so that your track doesn’t clip.

Multiband Limiter Vs. Multiband Compressor

The main difference between a multiband compressor and a multiband limiter is that a compressor will reduce the amount of signal exceeding the threshold. In contrast, the limiter will not let any signal trespass it.

In a more practical sense, we use a multiband compressor to reduce the dynamic range, whereas you will usually use a limiter to increase loudnessIn a more practical sense, we use a multiband compressor to reduce the dynamic range, whereas you will usually use a limiter to increase loudness. A limiter will not include a ratio knob or slider because the bands have a fixed ratio of inf:1 which means that it will compress every signal above the threshold by an infinite decibel.

1. T-Racks Quad Lim By IK Multimedia Review

T-Racks Quad Lim By IK Multimedia Review - Top 5 Multiband Limiter Plugins | Integraudio.com

IK Multimedia offers a multiband limiter with a transparent sound and mid/side functionalities.

The T-Raks Quad Lim is a multi-band limiter developed by IK multimedia. It comes with a transparent style of limitation and up to four adjustable bands that can be limited separately. Each band has a threshold, attack, release,  and gain knob that you can tweak individually or together if you press the “link bands” button.

This limiter is part of the T-racks Quad family that features four multiband plugins: A limiter, a compressor, a stereo enhancer, and a de-esser.

Key Features:

  • Brickwall button
    Quad Limiter features a brick wall button that will ensure no signal goes above zero dBfs no matter how loud it is. This functionality is handy, especially when you are mastering because any peaks above zero dB will translate as distorted sound.
  • Adjustable slope
    This plugin will allow you to create up to four independent bands and adjust the crossover slope that divides them. You can modify the slope between 6, 12, 18, and 24 DB/oct depending on how smooth you want the division of the spectrum to be. A higher slope will cut the frequencies harshly, whereas a lower value will create a flatter division, and the limiter will act more musically.
  • Meters
    Quad Lim comes with individual gain reduction meters for each band created and a global stereo meter for the total output signal. The meters are very reliable and will display the information in real-time.
  • Mid/side limiting
    This multiband limiter will allow you to process the signal in stereo or mid/side mode. If you select the latter, you will have the possibility to apply different limiting values for the mono and side channels. Mid/side limiting can be helpful if you want to apply a lighter limitation to the central channel but compresses the sides’ signal.
  • Solo/bypass
    A great feature of this plugin is the possibility to monitor in solo or bypass each band. If you select one band and press the solo button, you will listen exclusively to the chosen band and monitor the amount of limitation you are applying. In a multiband limiter, where different limitation is happening simultaneously, soloing each band can be a gamechanger. Additionally, you can bypass the effect over each band to A/B without turning on and off the plugin.

Compatibility:

T-racks Quad Lim is available for Windows 7 or higher and macOS 10.9.5 or later. It comes in Standalone, VST2, VST3, AAX Native, and AU for 64 bits.

Summary:

Quad Lim is a versatile and powerful plugin that will give you complete control over your limitation stage. It offers a very detailed and precise interface that will be friendly for both experienced and inexperienced users. This plugin can be a great introduction to multiband limitation because it provides you the essential parameters for limiting and meters that you can monitor for all individual bands. So, if you are looking for a transparent, powerful, yet easy-to-understand limiter, this should be your first option.

3. Waves L3 Multimaximizer Review

More Info & Price (Trial Available)

L3 Multimaximizer Review - Top 5 Multiband Limiter Plugins | Integraudio.com

Everyone knows the quality Waves offers. This time, L3 Multimaximizer will allow you to get louder masters and a final equalization touch.

This multiband limiter developed by Waves is one of the best options you can find on the market to limit your tracks and get the loudest output possible with no distortion. Usually, mastering engineers will use this plugin to limit a master due to the transparency it offers. Additionally, the linear phase eq features a variable slope that will prevent harmonic distortion.

This plugin comes with a master threshold that will limit the whole signal equally. However, each band comes with four parameters to adjust how much limitation you will get per band. In this limiter, the level of the five bands is added and attenuated once it exceeds the threshold value. By default, the L3 will act more aggressively in the bands with the most energy; however, with the priority knob, you can adjust where you want the limiter to attenuate the most.

Each band comes with four parameters. Gain for equalizing and Priority for determining the amount of limitation you want per band. The solo will play only the selected band, and the release will set the time duration when the limiter will allow the audio to recover post-limiting.

Key Features:

  • Easy to use and flexible
    The L3 Multimazimer comes with a master threshold slider that will limit the sum of the independent bands. You can control the amount of limitation you want per band using the priority slider located next to the band meter. Also, you have an out ceiling fader to set the maximum value in dB the limiter can reach.
  • Maximization
    This limiter’s transparency will allow you to get very loud masters without saturation. We advise you to find the right balance between the crossovers and the priority slider. If you do this process accurately, your song can gain many decibels without the limited or smashed feel some limiters have.
  • Master and Individual ARC
    L3 will allow you to fix independent release times for each band or assign a master automatic release control for an intelligent release time based on your track’s peaks and dynamics. Using the master ARC will give you some gluing effect and will compact your instruments.
    You can choose between three release modes:
    1. Aggressive for a slower release time and a punchy sound
    2. Warm for a faster release, tighter bass, and less compressed highs
    3. Scaled for a medium release, compressed highs, and slightly limited bass
  • Link
    The link button will coordinate both threshold and out ceiling sliders to hear how many limitations you are applying without the volume increase. Sometimes when we push a limiter or compressor, our tracks can sound boxy and smashed: However, this option will prevent you from destroying the dynamics of your song and help you get a limited sound without sacrificing transients.
  • Linear phase EQ
    Linear phase crossovers avoid harmonic saturation and make this limiter a very transparent plugin. The slope of these crossovers can be modified, as well as the frequency values. And while the default division can be a great starting point, feel free to adjust the bands to the needs of your song.

Compatibility:

This plugin is available for  Windows 10 64 bit and Mac OS 10.13.6 or later (Intel only). It comes in Audio Units, VST 3, VST, AAX, and Audiosuite format.

Summary:

With the L3 Multimazimer, you will be able to get significant boosts in your levels without the overcompressed effect some limiters have. Splitting the limitation into bands will give you more control over your frequencies and a final touch of equalization. If you want a top-quality limiter with no harmonic distortion and a very transparent sound, this is the right option for you.

However, when you open this plugin in your DAW, it will occupy a rather big part of your screen.
  • Dynamics processor.
    You will find a gate, expander, and compressor to process your dynamics and shape your transients on each band before limiting. As a result, you may get a cleaner and smoother sounding track. In addition, the gate will help you eliminate background noises or leaked signals from other instruments; this is a handy tool, especially for live performance or mixing.
  • Peak detection
    The brick wall limiter features multiple peak detection stages to capture the transients effectively without destroying the dynamics of your track. Depending on the knee value you choose, you can get a more transparent or aggressive sound; this limiter leaves a lot of room for creativity and customization.
