VST BrickWall Limiter

Download the VST Plugin (version 0.8 - 23/05/2010 - 188kB) :

For the reason that the plug-in development uses the JAVA framework you need to have an installed JAVA Runtime Environment.
If you don't have the JRE (JAVA Runtime Environment) installed then you'll get it here:

Plug-in Installation:

Windows VST:
Just unzip the dedicated ZIP-File and copy the plug-in folder into your VST plug-in directory.

Input Gain:
Increasing the input gain drives the limiter into limiting

The maximum allowed signal level. It is good practice to choose at least -0.1dB instead of 0dB to provide some head room for later audio compression (MP3, AAC, etc.).

The time the limiter takes to go back to a gain value of one (0 - 1s).

Gain Reduction:
The indicator shows the amount of gain reduction applied to keep the signal level below the selected threshold.
