The Rockruepel limit.one is a neo classic: A transformer-based analog limiter! Brickwall-limit, level control for mono or stereo tracks and new sound shaping capabilities in one device. This new limiter circuit design improves control over high and widely varying audio levels. Designed to get the most out of the momentum while keeping the signal's waveform intact, the limit.one is made for the 21st century and its new audio formats and platforms like iTunes, Spotify or YouTube.
Rockruepel adapted and optimized the use of a current-controlled attenuator, which sits between two Pikatron transformers. This element limits the signal but retains its original waveform. In order to be able to set the threshold in the wide range from + 2dBu to over + 22dBu extremely precisely, a 10-turn potentiometer is used. The output recovery gain of up to 5dB and the 4 reset times from slow to fast are realized by means of Elma rotary switches. The device can be used in mono or stereo and has a relay based bypass. An additional output allows the additional execution of the signal in mastering applications.
Rockruepel started with the successful tube compressor series consisting of comp.one and its successor, the comp.two. These boutique compressors were insider tips for recording, mixing and mastering and have been nominated several times for prizes. The ultra-high-quality sound and manufacturing quality that comp.one and comp.two users already know and love, is now available in a completely new kind of audio tool that balances loudness and dynamics in the user never before possible.
In our revision of the limit.one we added a new feature called ED-Mod (inspired by EDM). 225Hz with a 6dB slope in the side chains allows for more consistency and transparency in the bass frequencies. The limit threshold will now only increase frequencies for tone and dynamic control. Specially in bass heavy mixes you will enjoy this feature! For brick wall limiting you need to select the limit mode!Key Features:
