Last Line of Defence
Among audiophiles, it is generally believed that many recent CD
releases sound worse than they did when this format was initially
introduced. We decided to investigate the problem, and our
engineers discovered that the reason is inadequate level
restriction in production and mastering, which triggers distortion
in broadcasting processors, data-reduction algorithms and consumer
2nd Generation Brickwall Limiting
With the Brickwall Limiter 2, you get a stunning 2nd generation processor that we designed to show if a given signal is 'contaminated' with 0dBFS+ peaks and to remove them when necessary. Built on the foundation of the original Brickwall Limiter, it offers even better protection of the downstream signal-path without sacrificing overall loudness.
The BrickWall Limiter 2 algorithm is bit transparent below the threshold of limiting, which means that you can in fact use it on an already dithered master. In other words, let the BrickWall Limiter 2 have the final word, and you will definitely get cleaner and more predictable results on CDs and DVDs - as well as data-reduced deliveries such as MP3, AAC, Dolby Digital or DTS.
