Description : Blue Cat’s Protector is a stereo brikwall limiter with adjustable dynamic response. It usually finds its place on the main bus of your DAW in order to protect the audio signal from overload, limit the overall volume and improve the perceived loudness due to the very transparent frequency response and low-level function.
Despite a very simple set of controls, it offers a wide range of possibilities and is also suitable as a track limiter for more creative effects, such as distortion, pumping, or strong limiting. Its large colorful gauges, as well as a dynamic user histogram, provide excellent visual feedback and make it an ideal tool for monitoring and controlling dynamics on the main bus. You can also check in real time the increase in volume obtained with the help of a limiter.
In addition to powerful dynamic processing features and, like most of our plug-ins, Blue Cat’s Protector also offers an original sidechain thanks to MIDI CC output. This unique method allows you not only to have a side chain limiter, but also to modulate parameters: control any parameter of any plug-in to create powerful side-effects in real time.
