2013-10-16 03.04.49 amFab Filter is back with a new plugin. This one deals with an area that can be very tricky to use but the folks over at FabFilter claim they’ve got a very comprehensive version. This version of a multiband limiter has their own personal twist to it giving it a global wet/dry knob, 6 bands of dynamics, Midi learn, as well as the ease of use of FabFilters product line. It definitely looks very promising.
