To get your mixes to come out of the computer “loud & proud” but grooving and without unwanted distortion, it is necessary to cut off peaks and transients on all channels and stems (i.e., grouped or summed audio channels). Any pro will tell you: ”Don´t just limit on the master bus!”

Brainworx designed the bx_limiter to be used on multiple busses to smooth things out and glue them together prior to running through a full blown mastering limiter, like the Brainworx bx_XL V2.

The “Channel Link” knob is a unique and powerful feature that allows you to blend between “Linked” mode where both channels are limited when the threshold is exceeded on either channel, and “Off” where only the channel on which the threshold was exceeded is limited. If, for example, you set the blend control at 50% and a signal exceeds the threshold only on the right channel, the gain on the left channel will be reduced by half as much as the right. This creates some powerful options to maximize loudness while maintaining an even sounding mix.
