Tape-Wärme im Mix – jetzt gratis von Apogee

Published 1:35 pm on Monday 11th July 2022 by Beat Magazine

Now Apogee has faithfully recreated Soft Limit as a virtual effects plug-in and is giving it away for free. With Soft Limit you bring the warmth and character of analog tapes into your productions. In the original the threshold was fixed, but the plug-in allows the whole range and settings from down to -18 dBfs. If you activate the Makeup, the level is automatically raised when the soft limit threshold is lowered. More saturation is brought into play by the Drive control with level adjustments of 18 dB. The Output knob controls the output level. An Input, Soft Limit and Output meter provides visual information about the level. The tool also offers up to 16x oversampling rates. If the maximum value is set, the CPU load should still be low.

Price and availability

Soft Limit can be downloaded now for free. It supports VST, VST3, AU and AAX formats.
