Analog Limiter
« on: April 06, 2014, 07:29:21 pm »

Don't know if you've seen this retro analog limiter yet. One of the professors at school sent it to me and asked how well I thought it would work. What do you think?

Looks like an early DJ attachment.

It's set too high for DJs!

Ya, Whatever. Just throw a '57 on it, and get off my stage.

Amusing, but surely the most likely effect will be the channel faders all residing up near +10?

Perhaps the output faders should be moved ABOVE the limiter bar. Would that make it an Un-Limiter?  :o

Looks like someone was cranking tight on that screw.  They meant it not to move.  :P

This reminds me of a comment on a photography forum about using an enlarger to make prints smaller than the negatives.  Someone suggested that what they really needed was an ensmaller.

That would reduce the chance of speaker damage due to under-powering.   :)
