Mixbus limiter
Hi Andrew, thanks for doing this! Your Mix With the Masters and Puremix videos

Since it came out I'm using the Newfangled Audio Elevate Limiter. It's a 26 band limiter with transient reconstruction. Basically it's the most transparent limiter I've found.

Quite often my mixes will go through mastering as a flat transfer, possibly with a small level adjustment for context on the record. As far as RMS I have no idea but I'm sure it's way too much most of the time...
