If you look at the waveform going through the Ozone limiter on the right, there's a fair amount of headroom in the original audio. So he's only clipping a few dBs to get that 10dB of gain.

Contrary to what he says, the amount of clipping you can get away with is ALWAYS program dependent. There are other clippers, such as StandardCLIP, which I think can sound more transparent.
