Question

Hi,
How it works exactly? Is it like a limiter??

Yes. You could use it as a simple True Peak limiter (with input gain and TP ceiling).

But FinalLoud is more: it brings the current loudness level to a certain target level (by gain matching) while maintaining the specified True Peak ceiling.

Most of the plug-ins can do only one part out of the two:
1) Limiting: maintain a certain TP ceiling, but loudness level is hard to control
or
2) Loudness Leveler: leveling to a defined loudness level, but TP ceiling is out of control.

I don't understand the "gain matching".... Matching the gain of what?? This plugin is not designed to finalize the master of a track you made??

As said before FinalLoud is a simple limiter with input gain (control) and TP ceiling.
If you change the input gain the overall loudness of your signal will change.
Lets says you track has IL of -19.2LUFS. If you change the input gain to +4LU IL will be -15.2LUFS, right?
The match button helps you to calculate the required gain to reach e.g. -14LUFS.
In our example match will calculate 19.2-14.0 => 5.2.
So this simple gain matching. And the TP limiter of FinalLoud ensures that the TP level does not exceed the TP ceiling.

IL stands for Integrated Loudness (EBU R128), explained in the manual

OK but this plugin is designed to obtain a loudness for different streaming platform or something like that?

Yes, this is one use case.
E.g. people use FinalLoud to polish their audio files for Amazon Alexa (-14LUFS, -2dBTP).

OK! Don't need that finally! Izotope can do the job for me... Like LoudMax plugin too!!
Thank you!

Well, If you are just looking for a Limiter, there is not much to add.

Thank you.
Yes, set target to -8, method to RMS IL, True Peak to -0.1.
You may render and match the gain (match target) several times (relative mode).

Well, if your mix has already hit your TP ceiling, more gain than just the difference between current and target loudness is required to reach the target loudness.

But "Match target" just calculates the pure gain difference between current and target loudness...

Would this be suitable putting after another limiter to catch true peaks - as a safety measure? How transparent would it be in that scenario? (let's say -0.3db ceiling after Limitless or Elevate also at -0.3db, no input gain so no extra limiting and volume added, just anything above -0.3).

Is it completely alias free? Oversampled?

Hi TBProAudio, does it support multi-channel/surround? How would you describe any advantages of FinalLoud compared to Waves WLM+? Thank you.

You could do this, but what is the idea behind?. At least Limitless seems to support TP limiting...

FinalLoud uses the TP limiter from LAxLimit. TP Limiting as such is not completely alias free, but FinalLoud/LAxLimit uses a low alias design. FinalLoud does not use additional OS.

FinalLoud does (not yet) support multi channel, only 1.0 and 2.0.
I´m not an expert of WLM+, but it seems that both could do the same:

so this is like

and izotope final mix (discontinued)

or izotope RX loudness control (349 USD) but at a tenth the cost?

is there anything missing?

Hmm, it seems that iZotope supports only AAX/RTAS. FinalLoud supports VST2/VST3/AU/RTAS/AAX x32/x64.

Otherwise iZotope seems to be similar to Finalloud.

Please get more information and demo here: Professional Audio Tools
