Ten of the best brickwall limiter plug-ins

Taking the opposite approach, if you are looking for a limiter that colors the sound and gets very nasty quick, the d16 Frontier does the trick. I used it on a drum bus once and it worked great. This is not a tool for transparency and subtle results. It pumps, screams, and goes nuts.
