Real True Peak Multichannel Limiter
Elixir v3 is carefully designed to accomplish a true natural sounding result preserving the natural timbre of the audio material, meeting the broadcast, post-production and mastering industry norms with real True Peak output in accordance with the ITU-R BS.1770 and EBU R128 norms, with up to eight channels for multichannel/surround.
True Peak level metering and limiting – ITU-R BS.1770 / EBU R128 Compliant
Up to 8 channels Input/Output
Input / Output Gain (-12/+12 dB) applied to the limiter input and to the output stage of the limiter
Multistage processing, providing the option to set the algorithm to perform the limiting processing in multi-stages, in order to achieve even more precise and natural sounding results.
True bypass control routing the incoming signal direct to the output for a smooth transition between clean and processed signal.
Preset and Parameter Handling
To enhance the workflow the two Preset/Parameter slots, A and B, can be loaded with two full set of parameters at the same time. Apart from saving each preset, a “Global Preset” containing both the A and B settings, and the position of the “Morphing Slider”, can be saved.
Quick and easy setup
Elixir’s straightforward user interface makes it exceptionally easy to achieve great results, even under a tight deadline.
Simply set the input level, adjust the Threshold according to the amount of limiting desired, and finally enable Make Up for gain compensation and loudness addition – That’s it!
For truly delicate and fine processing tasks, Elixir v3 presents a new innovative concept called Stages, providing the option to set the algorithm to perform the limiting processing in multi-stages, in order to achieve even more precise and natural sounding results.
Example: If the threshold is set to -3 dB and the ‘Stages’ parameter set to 3, the first stage will limit at -1dB, the second stage will limit at -2dB and the third will limit at -3dB, with analyzing performed in each of the three stages.
Dual Preset Slots and Parameter Morphing
The built in preset manager and the preset morphing slider, provides instant and intuitive control of all parameters and controls. In a second, with a simple one-click operation, everything is copied from one of the two preset slots to the other, even during playback.
The two Preset/Parameter slots, A and B, can be loaded with two full set of parameters at the same time, and except for only A/B comparing two sets of parameters, the morphing slider will allow to mix them, and to record the morph with the host automation.
