Sonible claim that smart: limit is more than just a limiter plugin.

Smart: limit allows you to monitor the dynamics and choose the appropriate loudness for publishing on different media and streaming platforms, reports

Using artificial intelligence, Sonible’s smart: limit motto of “Set – Check – Publish” is truly possible. The smart: limit feature set starts with monitoring tools for loudness and dynamics. There, “Instant Impact Prediction” allows you to avoid restarting the loudness measurements every time you manipulate a parameter. The changes will be reflected in real-time without you having to play the entire input signal again!

Smart: limit’s “intelligent limiter logic”, as named by Sonible, uses profiles based on genres to identify the correct limiting approach. You can also input your desired amount of limiting. Thre are also different limiter characteristics available to you, and you can import a reference track too.

The onboard tools for quality checking give you interactive tips in regard to which limiter parameters should be optimized before publishing the track!

There are also four more tools for fine-tuning the sound even further. The Style parameter dictates how aggressively the plug-in will handle your audio. Saturation increases the loudness as well as density of the output signal without actually changing the signals peak level. Balance improves the spectral balance, and the frequency-selective bass control optimizes the low end of the frequency spectrum.

smart: limit is available now for EUR 89 until January 10th 2022 as an introductory price. After Jan 10th the regular price will be EUR 129.
