Lift Your Voice
For a vocal to really cut through the mix and ride other instruments, it’s usually a good idea to make sure it’s loud and proud. However, the dynamics of a vocalist’s performance can vary wildly, from softly sung verses to strident choruses. Despite a comprehensive vocal effects chain, with careful volume-riding and compression, you’ll often need a final limiter to clamp down on fluctuating dynamics or to smooth slower phrases.
We designed Vocal Limiter to be the last step in your vocal processing chain and as simple to use as possible. It’s specifically developed to target the frequencies of vocal performances so is less affected by overly high or low frequency content. With multiple speed modes and real-time VU meters, you can use your eyes and ears to find the perfect settings… or just flick through the included presets. With Vocal Limiter you can be sure that your vocals will sit comfortably in the mix and be heard loud and clear.
You’ll probably already be familiar with the normal functions of a limiter; set the threshold to clamp down on levels above a certain amplitude. How quickly a signal recovers after this is dictated by the Speed button.
4 Release Speed Modes
Use the central button at the bottom of the interface to toggle the auto-release of the limiter to 4 speed settings. Depending on the performance of your vocalist, each of these settings will give a different effect. Use slow speed for smoother performances such as ballads and acoustic songs, and fast speed for quicker changes, perfect for vocal chops and raps. Medium speed is suitable for most other kinds of vocal but feel free to experiment and discover the best settings for your particular style. Ultra Slow speed has also been included as a bonus; useful for synth parts and other types of audio that require a more gentle, transparent release setting.
Input & Output
Adjust the Input and Output faders to balance vocals recorded at different volumes and dynamics. These parameters are also useful when used in conjunction with the click and pop-free bypass button, for accurate A/Bing in context.
The live VU meters of the interface show exactly what’s happening to your audio signal in real time. This allows for accurate monitoring at every step of the chain.
It’s easy to adjust the parameters of Vocal Limiter and since this is such a simple plugin, finding the right settings is so fast. Nevertheless, we have bundled some of the most useful combinations of settings as factory presets, easily accessible via either the browser or the arrows to the left and right of the interface preset section. Just click these for quick access to curated presets.
