When NEVE® first released their iconic 2254E™ Limiter, it was intended for the broadcast market. While it did become a fixture in broadcast production facilities around the world, it was when the Rock'n’Roll producers got ahold of it that it became legendary.
It was designed to place a ceiling on levels used in broadcast, but producers and engineers discovered that if you hit it really hard, the internal compression and limiter circuits produced a warm punchy sound that pumped up Tracks and Master Busses in a most pleasing manner.
A great example of how sometimes using a tool for something other than its intended purpose can produce great results. The Lindell 254E plugin captures the magic of this legendary compressor & limiter.
In addition, the plugin includes useful additional features like a wet/dry mix and selectable slow or fast attack times. If you’re looking to turn a meek drum buss into bombs from Bonham, the 254E might be just the ticket.
The Lindell 254E plugin gives you the tone of this classic compressor & limiter. One of the most colorful limiters ever released, it was born for radio but had rock in its soul.
