All-in-one Visual Limiter

SSL X-Limit is an easy-to-use and visual limiter for increasing the loudness of your tracks and buses without the fear of clipping – featuring multiple set characteristics ranging from extremely transparent to colour and glue, a standard-compliant True Peak algorithm for precision processing, and useful feedback about the limiter’s impact on the stereo image of your signal.

The all-in-one left-to-right waveform visualisation lets you set the limiter threshold and ceiling against the incoming signal – then dial in the gain to increase loudness while catching peaks.

X-Limit includes 4 preset styles – Transparent, Glue, Punch and Auto – that adjusts the ballistics under-the-hood to achieve different characteristic responses for any given situation. Use in Punch mode to smash a drum bus, on vocals and acoustic guitars in Transparent mode to catch peaks, or Glue mode on a sub-group for a unified sound. The Auto mode provides a set-and-forget options that adjusts the time constants    depending on the transient content of your signal.

The unique Steering and Ducking meters indicate how the limiting process might influence the stereo image of your signal, and to provide feedback to minimise stereo degradation using the Channel Link control.

In addition, X-Limit provides several workflow enhancements such as Gain Lock, I/O difference auditioning, Gain Match – as well as a Mix control to dial the original signal back in, especially when using X-Limit to add punch and character rather than catch and control peaks.


  • Maximise your tracks and buses - Smooth and musical limiter plug-in for controlling peaks and maximising loudness with minimal latency

  • All-in-one visual limiter - Use the all-in-one waveform visualiser and threshold/ceiling slider to set the response of the limiter against the incoming signal

  • SSL’s True Peak, standard-compliant limiting algorithm - See momentary and max True Peak value readouts, and ensure that inter-sample peaks are effectively and efficiently limited with intelligent oversampling

  • Transparent, Glue, Punch and Auto modes - Pick from 4 carefully designed limiter characteristics for quick and versatile processing to suit a wide range of material

  • Ducking and Steering meters to minimise stereo degradation - Use Channel Link and observe the meters to visualise the effect of limiting on your stereo image

Key Features & Benefits

  • Pick from 4 carefully designed limiter characteristics – Transparent, Glue, Punch and Auto
  • True Peak mode engages SSL’s True Peak algorithm to ensure that inter-sample peaks are effectively limited using intelligent oversampling
  • All-in-one visualiser and threshold/ceiling sliders let you easily set parameters against the incoming signal level
  • Set the Ceiling in True Peak mode to prevent your signal from exceeding a maximum level
  • Pull down the Threshold control to control when limiting kicks in
  • Auto style automatically adjusts the ballistics on the limiter based on the transient content of the signal
  • Auto Release overrides the release time, automatically shortening for transient peaks and prolonging it for sustained sounds
  • Use the advanced fade-in Lookahead algorithm to smoothly catch transients
  • Accurate momentary and max True Peak value readouts
  • Use on the master bus to transparently add loudness to your mix
  • Channel Link blends between stereo or independent left/right limiting
  • ITU-R B.S. 1770 and Apple ‘afclip’ True Peak detection standard compliant
  • Minimise stereo degradation using the Steering and Ducking meters
  • Gain Match allows you to preview the effect of the limiter without the psychoacoustic effect of the signal level increase
  • Use Gain Lock to maintain the applied gain to quickly demo different presets and styles on your source material
  • Mix control to dial back in the original signal when using the limiter to add punch or character rather than catch peaks
