Whether you're taming erratic sonic crests or preserving the natural dynamics of your mix, Bus PEAK lets you achieve a big, loud, and full sound while maintaining control of your transients.

Versatile sonic limiter

Add some energy to your entire mix for a polished, professional sound or get creative and apply Bus PEAK to an instrument track, like a vocal or lead guitar, to add some gentle warmth or top-end sizzle, or help it sit prominently without getting lost in the mix.

Loud and clear

Increase the overall volume of your mix without introducing unwanted distortion or sacrificing clarity. Bus PEAK ensures a sound that remains clear and defined, even at higher volumes.

Professional metering

Bus PEAK provides industry-standard loudness metering and True Peak control to ensure your audio conforms precisely to your needs.

A closer

Whether fine-tuning a home studio production or professionally mastering the next hit release, Bus PEAK is your go-to tool for shaping audio dynamics. With its intuitive interface and advanced settings, effortlessly fine-tune signal loudness and limiter processing.


The Clipper and Limiter modules work synergistically to optimize audio dynamics and ensure peak control.

Get instant results with one of Bus PEAK’s specialized presets or find your own configuration to enhance the presence and impact of your sound, or creatively introduce distortion.


The Clipper module trims audio peaks to manage dynamics, freeing up headroom for enhanced loudness.

It can either transparently manage peaks or introduce warmth, color, and distortion based on its settings.


Positioned after the Clipper, the Limiter module controls peaks to keep output levels within set parameters while maintaining clarity.

It can either transparently control peaks to preserve the natural sound or apply more aggressive limiting for a tighter, more controlled output, depending on its settings.

your way

Whether you're looking to refine the subtleties of your mix or apply more aggressive techniques, these tips will help you get started, manage transients effectively, and use specific settings to handle various musical scenarios.

General Limiting

Set the Limiter Character at 50% and adjust the Release for longer events. Fine-tune the Character for desired loudness or gentleness.This approach can be used to improve the mix balance, maintain natural dynamics and ensure compliance with loudness standards.

Aggressive Limiting

Set the Limiter Character to 100% and adjust Release to taste. This can be used to add punch and impact, maximise loudness and maintain volume consistency throughout a track. Aggressive limiting will help to achieve even greater loudness, but may also lead to some audible distortion, and is therefore generally only recommended on very dense mixes (such as with Metal music).

Creative tone control

Use the Bass limiter to pre-limit loud kicks, allowing more aggressive settings on the Clipper or Limiter for a more transparent sound. Once the kick peaks are under control, you can push the volume higher and achieve greater loudness.

mastering tool

The art of limiters lies in a delicate balance between enhancing audio clarity and maintaining natural dynamics.

Whether hardening a kick or tightening a vocal, a well-applied limiter can transform a mix, adding punch and fullness without introducing distortion or compromising the integrity of the original sound. But that’s not all, limiters can also be creatively employed to introduce controlled levels of distortion, warmth and texture.
