Whilst Elephant is undoutably a great limiter I always find it is in second place or when my primary limiter is not quite working out. It has a rather thick character to it to my ear and audio sounds a little different when its running through which suits around 10pct of material IMO. I use it as an effect limiter. It is certainly a contender for best value limiter thats out there.
Props to Aleksey for it.

I will have to have a listen to the Pro-L limiter at some point.

I'm still liking this limiter as much as when I first posted but have discovered a glitch, at least with my processing setup (Mac G5 Dual/PTs 8/RTAS).

When I recall a setting, the volume doesn't always go to where it was saved. A mouse click on or near the volume display restores it to where it was saved. This doesn't happen with any of the other saved settings.

Anyone else notice this?

I received a email from the Pro-L guys and thought I should post it in case I am not the only one who didn't notice this!

Hi Andy,

Ah, I think I know what you mean now! Smile At the top of Pro-L's interface, near the Help button, you see a little lock icon. That's the 'Lock Output Settings' button. If it's enabled, all output settings (like Output Level and Gain, but also Dithering and Oversampling etc.) will -not- be changed when loading presets. This makes it easier to compare how different settings work on a piece of audio...

So if you disable that setting, Pro-L will load all parameter as you expect, also the Output Level.

 I notice that on my system when you alt-drag the threshold slider (so the output is correspondingly reduced and you can hear the effect of limiting without a change in loudness) the linkage only seems to work in an upward direction: when you pull the slider down with alt still held the output doesn't go up but stays at the lowest point. I think the two should be linked in both directions, I don't imagine it would be hard to program.

This must be a bug. It works here as intended, alt-drag simply reverse links the gain and output controls and works both ways.

I've got this working on both Windows 64bit and 32bit in Reaper and Wavelab 6 (can't stand the new version 7.. what a mess).
