SaschArt introducing LufsLimiter concept: The Ultimate LUFS-Based Limiter Audio Plugin!

Experience the Future of Audio Limiting with lufsLimiter - Unlock the Power of Loudness Balancing!

lufsLimiter is a free groundbreaking VST plugin designed to revolutionize audio limiting by introducing a new approach based on Loudness Units Full Scale (LUFS). Unlike traditional peak-based limiters, lufsLimiter offers precise control over loudness levels, ensuring your audio maintains optimal loudness while preserving the dynamics of tracks.

Key Features:
LUFS-Based Limiting: lufsLimiter utilizes LUFS measurements to live adjust audio levels, allowing for more accurate and natural-sounding limiting.
Optimized Loudness: Achieve consistent loudness levels across different audio tracks, live representations, podcasts, or mixes, enhancing the overall listening experience.
Dynamic Range Preservation: Maintain the integrity of your audio's dynamic range, preventing increases as well as decreases in loudness and ensuring clarity and detail of your tracks.
Real-Time Monitoring: Visualize LUFS levels in real-time, providing valuable feedback on your audio's loudness characteristics.
Perceptual Volume Balancing: In addition to its innovative LUFS-based limiting capabilities, lufsLimiter also offers advanced perceptual volume balancing functionality. This feature intelligently analyzes different parts of your audio track and dynamically adjusts their volume levels to ensure a balanced and cohesive listening experience.
Multi-Instrument Volume Balancing: In addition to its perceptual volume balancing capabilities, lufsLimiter introduces an innovative feature for balancing the volume of multiple instruments simultaneously within your audio tracks. This advanced functionality allows you to achieve a harmonious balance between groups of instruments, ensuring that they blend seamlessly together in the mix.
Customizable Parameters: Tailor the limiting behavior to suit your specific requirements with adjustable threshold, release time, and other parameters.
Low CPU Usage: Enjoy smooth performance without compromising on processing power, thanks to efficient algorithm implementation.

Music Production: Perfect for mastering engineers, producers, and musicians looking to achieve professional-grade loudness and dynamics in their music.
  1. On master: this program can be used for the master's but for small attenuation.
  2. On set of tracks: you can use it on sets of tracks to limit the loudness of some sets of instruments. Thus, the volume of these instruments self-balances. Do not use Look ahead on this.
  3. On tracks: you can use the program on tracks to limit the loudness for an instrument. Do not use Look ahead on this. Specifically, it is used a lot per track and allows greater attenuation.

Live Representations: Many times the loudness balance in live performances is very difficult to achieve. Often sound pieces appear with a loudness that is too low and sometimes too high. Because it offers you a live loudness normalizer, it can help you enormously to balance the loudness in a great way.
Podcast Production: Ensure consistent loudness levels across episodes, enhancing the listening experience for your audience.
Broadcasting: Ideal for radio stations, TV networks, and online streaming platforms seeking to comply with loudness standards while preserving audio quality.
Film and Video: Maintain balanced audio levels in film and video projects, enhancing dialogue clarity and overall sound design.

Key Features at a Glance:

  • Input gain, attack and release knob.
  • Look ahead to prepare the envelope before the lufs peaks appear. Look ahead feature mean delay on input, use it only on master.
  • Knob to set the size of window meter.
  • Out limit knob to set the maximum output of track Lufs.
  • Graphics of input loudness, envelope after attack and release, output loudness and the attenuation. The graphics are dynamically compressed to fit less than 600 pixels, don't expect them to be very accurate. Also for this reason, the curves will fluctuate when there is a lot of data that needs to be compressed, trouble that disappears when we press stop from the DAW button.
  • Three buttons for graphic: lock the data on start playing, reset the data and create graphic data only at DAW play.
  • Slider to change the attenuation target.
  • Maximum attenuation and integrated Lufs displaying.
  • Few presets.

Tips for use:
  • Definitely lufsLimiter monitors momentary lufs for prompt reaction. Also for a quick reaction and correction, narrow measurement windows are used that can be modified for a good correlation with the dynamics of the track.
  • Theoretically the attack, the window size for measurement and the release are smaller as the dynamics of the track are more pronounced.
  • It is good that the attack is shorter than the release for a quick response.
  • This program reduces the LRA, so it's very useful for loudness balancing especially when there are too big differences between minimum and maximum.
  • Instances on the track support greater attenuation than the master. The attenuation on the master shouldn't affect the rhythmic part. We can't say exactly how much attenuation should be, it depends on many factors and only experience can determine the optimal settings. As a guideline, the attenuation on the master shouldn't exceed 2dB, and per track it shouldn't exceed 4-5dB. Of course, there are exceptions.
  • When we have graphs and the button 9 in the image below is active, we can get detailed information about the values in the graphs if we hover the mouse to that position.
  • Auto scroll is enable by default, click right on the scroll to disable. When auto scroll is enable the scroll will follow the loudness curve.
  • You can discover valuable information by hovering over the knobs with the mouse.
  • For keyboard input: hover over the knob, right-click, input the value from the keyboard, then press enter
  • To reset to the default value: double-click on the knob.

User Manual:
lufsLimiter - User Manual
  1. Input Gain knob to add loudness to the input and to easily set the proper attenuation.
  2. Look Ahead knob to prepare the envelope before the lufs peaks appear. Look ahead feature mean delay on input, use it only on master.
  3. Attack knob to to create the monitoring envelope.
  4. Release knob to to create the monitoring envelope. This envelope must be correlated with the dynamics of the track.
  5. Window size for Lufs metering.
  6. Out limit knob to set the maximum output of momentary Lufs. Do not expect the maximum momentary lufs to be exactly this value, there is an envelope and the attenuation is in decibels, but an approximative result can be obtained.
  7. Button to lock or reset the data on start playing.
  8. Button to reset the data and graphic curves.
  9. Button to create graphic data only at DAW play.
  10. Slider to set the attenuation target. This is only to warn the user if the attenuation exceeds a certain limit.
  11. Informations about maximum attenuation, maximum momentary lufs and integrated lufs
  12. Curve for attenuation.
  13. Curve for input loudness.
  14. Curve for output loudness.
  15. Limit line for out loudness.
