FabFilter announce the availability of FabFilter Pro-L 2, a major update to the Pro-L limiter plug-in
Known for their powerful audio plug-ins, Amsterdam based FabFilter have announced their latest update for the Pro-L. The new Pro-L plug-in brings four brand-new limiting algorithms, a new true peak limiting mode, extensive standards-compliant loudness metering, surround support, and many other new features. This plug-in will definitely not disappoint those of you using Pro-L.
FabFilter Pro-L 2 introduces four new limiting algorithms. Modern is the new ‘best for all’ algorithm that produces better results than the Transparent and Allround algorithms from version 1. Aggressive is great for maximum loudness, making it suited for EDM or rock music. Bus has been designed specifically for drums and limiting of individual tracks, while Safe’s goal is not maximum loudness, but to avoid distortion.
The new true peak limiting feature in the Pro-L 2 makes it easy to hit a maximum true peak target. All you need to do is set the output level to the desired value, enable True Peak Limiting, and that’s it. There is also complete support for surround audio with flexible channel linking making Pro-L 2 much more versatile in multi-channel scenarios, while the sound quality has up to 32x linear phase oversampling. New features like a DC offset filter, external side chain triggering for stem mastering, and a Unity Gain option ensure that Pro-L 2 “is the solution to any mastering challenge.”
The unique real-time level has new display modes, including an Infinite mode that shows all audio for an entire session. Moments of significant gain reduction are highlighted with peak labels to give additional insight in the limiting process. Sounds like it could be handy!
