Eventide / Newfangled Audio Elevate

It's taking me some time to learn when the limiter section on this works and so far not finding much use for the drive clipper section.

But the transient part is kinda great on some electronic stuff. Just mastered a minimal trappy sub bass donk edm pop type track with it and used the transient section only with a modified version of the EDM master preset (still the same bands, but more adaptive band independence, not so much emphasis on the lowest band and a little less on the total amount slider) then fed that into my usual go to clipper to limiter combo for edm. Absolutely killed it on this track. Sounds huge, without blowing up the LUFS.

Very happy with the purchase if only for this kind of limited use.

Having spent even longer with it yesterday - and working predominantly on electronic stuff - I'm pretty sure that's how I'll use it too. As it is, the actual limiter is only useful for the most absolutely bass-heavy material; adaptive gain = goodbye bass. Even setting up a band or two at say 0-20Hz and 20-40Hz to try to stop it sucking out too much of the desired low end doesn't help as much as I had hoped. I'm going to say it (sorry); it needs a weighting control a la Limitless.

But: the transient section, however, is borderline genius. 100% worth the price of admission. Superbly implemented and sounds great in tests so far.

I went IN on it yesterday, and have a few (IMHO!) useful suggestions for Dan. I'm a bit worried I'm being really annoying though, so if you'd prefer it off this thread Dan, then let me know.

Also sorry for talking a fair bit about other limiters on this thread, kind of hard not to!

I started it, so please blame me....
Edit: no, it was Reynaud in fact. So blame him...

The more I use Elevate the more I get used to it (man, I should finally buy it...).
I do not know your way of working, but I do work "into the limiter" while mastering. And I think it will make a big differences in those comparisons as its all about the chain.
I decided to give it some real world use within the next days as I always need some time to see what aspects Im able to handle within the process and what aspects are annoying me over time.

Yep I agree with this assessment. Ozone 8 in general has this warm natural laid back feel in contrast making Elevate seem hyped. I still havent fully wrapped my head around each parameter of Elevate so Im sure I could get further varying results once Ive grasped it. Im enjoying both.

Totally agreed - I work into the limiting too, that decision is usually made very very early in my process.

Loving the transient part feeding Limitless though. Very nice indeed.

Hi Macc,

I take suggestions wherever you want to leave them, PM, email, or here. And this is y'alls thread, not mind; talk about what you want.

If you're having bass fade with particular settings, did you try bringing these back up in the EQ section? This is exactly what it's for.
