Best brickwall limiter plug for Nuendo/Mac?

Anything on par with the Massey L2007 for PT?

I think there's some kind of echo in here?

It would be great if someone did a similar shootout like Sound on Sound did in May/Juni 2006, but for AU/VST Plug-ins on the Mac.

Pro Tools Mastering Limiter Shootout - Part 1
Pro Tools Mastering Limiter Shootout - Part 2

If you want to have a cheaper alternative for the Sony/Sonnox Oxford Limiter, you could demo CrySonic SpectraPhy LE.
It goes for $45 until 15 August 2007... after that it is $59 but it's still on their website for $45...

by a long way the best plug in limiter (oooh, oxymoron) would be the TC electronics powercore based MD3. THEN all the others. The MD3 is a dynamics package plugin in another league. Yes, i know, you need a powercore. The results are astounding though. All i can say is check it out - its the same plugin package available on the 6000 series. By far and away the best plugin Multiband and Limiter.

In the native world (except sonnox which is becoming native lately), Voxengo Elephant, Izotope Ozone and CrySonic SpectraPhy are not bad.

@Marco, I agree on Elephant (don't know the CrySonic SpectraPhy, PC only?) but Izotope Ozone falls flat on its face. ;-)

CrySonic SpectraPhy is PC only for the time being, but CrySonic SpectraPhy LE is now available for the Mac.

oh man

I second the vote for the MD3....

pick up a powercore compact on ebay w/ VSS3 for like $499...

then get the MD3 package

You will not be disappointed.

How does the duende sound?

I don't see this one mentioned so often, but I think it's worth a look.

In the New Product Alert! forum there is talk of a limiter by Flux where the last bug are currently being fixed for the Audio Unit support.

More information about the new Flux Limiter here.

And as far as I know it will be included for free in all bundles.

I'm going to get the mastering bundle. Fairly expensive plug-ins though..

This may seem weird, but putting the Waves Ren Comp before the L2 can sound very similar to the Sonnox limiter.

that sounds very wired, because the L2 clips the signal and does not look for intersampling peaks..

I will have a try

there's something that bothers me about the renn comp, for some reason i get this low freq modulation on many sources. when i put it on the master buss it just doesn't handle well

I was very disappointed by the sony limiter. I prefer L2/L3 anyday of the week. I primarily mix and master hiphop.

Thanks

I never use the Ren Comp as I have so many others to choose from, although I've never noticed any LF problems with it. Also, I would never use the Ren Comp/L2 combination to replace the Sonnox... I just thought it would be interesting to mention. I might, however, use the L2 at times over the Sonnox. I like experimenting with plugs to see how similar I can make them sound. This may at first seem odd, but it is actually a great way to become familiar with their strengths and weaknesses. I'm looking forward to see what Sonnox is working on next.
