Sonnox Oxford Limiter by Jomox
The Sonnox Oxford Limiter offers a good alternative to the other available limiter plugins on the market from waves etc.
The limiter has a good number of handy features which include: 64bit compatibility, attack, release and variable soft knee controls, comprehensive dither and noise shaping, a good number of presets and more.
I personally use the limiter on personal tracks I send out for people to listen to and friends who want their tracks to have a basic master with okay loudness, this is mainly all electronic music, I'm no professional but I do have a bit of experience.
I find the Sonnox Oxford Limiter to be very handy in getting a good amount of loudness. With most tracks I personally find it can get tracks louder than other limiters such as the L1/L2/L3 from waves and the ozone limiter etc, while keeping things nice and clean still. You can easily find the limits with this limiter as it lets you know when your pushing a track to hard as you'll hear things getting a bit to squashed and messy.
For me personally I've definitely found it to be much more clean then other plug-in limiters overall, though there is still some tracks I do prefer to sometimes use the L1 maximizer, but on most I prefer to use the Sonnox Oxford. Still some tracks I've found the Sonnox to sometimes bring the worse out of some harsh frequencies that may be in the mix no matter what settings you tweak. This can be fixed in other ways of course, but if you want to keep things simple I usually go back to the L1 or another limiter on these tracks.
I usually only use the safe mode button on it though, with a bit of attack, soft knee and of course dither, this for me keeps things nice and clean, but the other settings can come in handy depending on the track and how you work.
The main downside you could say is the price, with it costing a bit more than Waves L1, but it is a very powerful yet clean limiter and worthy of buying.
