I hear lots about PRO-L
being the best for all genres. I wasn't able to demo FG-X
, Compassion and Pro-L
at the same time so no idea what is the best on sound quality but the most fun to work with was FG-X
. All three kick the crap out of the limiter included in Ableton Live 8.
I use FG-X
for EDM and Rock nothing to moan about sound wise, I'm not an expert at mastering so I trust the recommendations of it from the forums.
It's just great to mess around with very simple and fun tweaking the sound with it. Does what it says on the tin.
DMG Audio Compassion has a limiter built in that does the job very transparent I use this on a mix while trying things out because FG-X
will crash Ableton Live 8 or 9 64bit If you have a few sampled instruments loaded. So I can only use FG-X
when final mastering with just the imported final WAV file. There wouldn't be enough CPU to run FG-X
and the mix synths and effects anyway.
Now if the compressor within FG-X
had it's own makeup gain knob and additional dll just for the compressor it would be a no brainer.
Live 9 has Cytomic The Glue for limiting going to give that a go. Anyone tried Cytomic The GLue for limiting and making it a bit louder?
