Amsterdam, Netherlands (December 5, 2017)—FabFilter is now shipping the Pro-L 2 update to its Pro-L limiter plug-in. This update offers new limiting algorithms, a true peak limiting mode and other new features, including compliant loudness metering and surround support.
FabFilter Pro-L 2 offers four new limiting algorithms. According to the company, Modern is an overall algorithm that improves upon the Transparent and Allround algorithms from version 1, while Aggressive is designed for maximum loudness and Bus is designed specifically for drums and limiting of individual tracks. Finally, Safe is designed with the intention of avoiding distortions.
The new true peak limiting feature in FabFilter Pro-L 2 is designed to hit a maximum true peak target. Combined with improved true peak metering and extensive loudness metering that’s compliant with the EBU R128, ITU-R BS.1770-4, and ATSC A/85 standards, “Pro-L 2 is the perfect fit for any loudness normalization job,” reports FabFilter.
FabFilter Pro-L 2 is now available for $199, supporting both Windows and macOS in VST and VST 3, Audio Units, AAX, RTAS, and AudioSuite plug-in formats. Bundles with FabFilter Pro-L 2 and other FabFilter plug-ins are also available.
