Sonic Anomaly continues the freebie series with Unlimited, a great limiter & maximizer plugin for 32 and 64 bit DAW’s running on Windows operating systems.
Primarily, Unlimited is a loudness maximizer and limiter for stereo and 5.1 surround material. It also offers an ITU-R BS.1770 compliant loudness meter in addition to RMS output meters. Even though it supports 5.1 configuration, normal stereo operation is fully supported, in this case the additional channels are not in use and won’t consume any CPU.
According to its authors, Unlimited aims to have balanced characteristics: avoiding audible distortion typical to hard limiting and clipping to the extent it is feasible, yet still not sounding compressed or vigorless.
Unlimited is available as a free download at Sonic Anomaly website. This plugin is delivered as VST only (32 & 64-bit) for Windows 7 and above.
