The Loudness Police will be after me, but if 'loud' is the son du jour I clip the TC6000 a bit before Pro-L, and that probably achieves a similar result to Ben Subvert. I've found hard-clipping the TC to be quite effective, don't know if this is some function of its 48bit processing but it sounds as good as one could hope.

FWIW, Pro-L hasn't replaced Ozone's loudness maximizer for me, but is another good tool in the box. I use them each about half the time depending on which is working best for the material.

I'm going to go on the record as saying the Pro-L is gorgeous to look at but I'm not sure it's transparent - and I'm talking at just clipping the tops of things.  I have to do more tests.  Likewise, I've been trying the Pro-Q because I just love the interface, but I'm not sure it's as high fidelity as things like the Algorithmix Red/Orange... TBD

I don't think any limiter is transparent, as well as isn't clipping. The thing I like about Pro-L is that it has various completely different sounding modes which can work really, really well.

I have the Elephant 3, and they work together very well.

But just recently I crushed the crap out of something with the HEDD, and it sounded really good. Whatever works.
