Liquid Mix as brickwall limiter

Hi,

Is it possible setting a wall? Anyone use it?
I'm looking for both a limiter for my drums (snare) and a bus limiter for "mastering".

Thanks
Fred

I've used it for this application, it sounded good.

Hi, thanks for answering!

Any particular emulation?
Also, how did you set a wall? As I can see there's no way to set a brick wall limit so that the signal doesn't go higher than f.i -0.3dBFS

This is an old old post... but for anyone wanting the liquidmix to act as a limiter as well as comp/EQ you do this by going to its offline settings or 'Liquidmix manager' as its called from Start menu on windows, and checking 'clip at 0dBFS'.

This doesnt give you much room to move as you dont have the option to change the limiters settings but it does brick wall with 0 attack, effectively. I've pushed the signal with drums, snares etc pretty hard and yeah it does sound quite good.... Also I'm not sure whether with different emulations the sound of the limiter changes. I strongly doubt it as Focusrite would have made a point about it emulating comp + limits.

anyway just happened to plug-in the LM today after a few months of no use... and mannn I love this thing :D

mine's always glowing away even when I power down the studio - the daw stays powered up 24/7, so does the liquid mix therefore.

makes me happy to see it glowing when I come in late at night

I think the Liquid Mix has some excellent emulations, but since I got the 2011 imac Using the firewire port for an Apogee duet means that I can't use the liquid mix. I've been waiting for a thunderport adaptor to come out so I can use it again, but nothing so far. I really miss it, it seems to have something that many of my plugins can't match.
