EDINBURGH, Scotland, March 5th 2019.  Scottish developers Signum Audio are proud to announce the release of the BUTE Limiter plugin, the latest and most versatile addition to their range of the advanced loudness solution, BUTE. The best part? Until the 19th of March, you can get it for the very reasonable introductory price of £29.

Signum Audio’s new high-end limiter promises to deliver “high fidelity, ultra-transparent audio quality with incredibly sleek usability”.

Ultra-Transparent Limiting

Bute Limiter is driven by a new audio limiting algorithm using a novel approach that claims to be “the most transparent limiter around”.  It delivers limiting with a pure, smooth sound that stays faithful to the original while True Peak limiting.

A Smooth, Versatile Experience

The BUTE Limiter prides itself on how minimalist it is. Signum Audio’s signature approach to “clean yet comprehensive” UX design makes the BUTE Limiter incredibly simple to use on individual tracks for mixing or on your final master bus. The graphical user-interface provides extra peace of mind, giving users in-depth analysis and readings for True Peak, Threshold and Gain Reduction. Alternatively, you can collapse the plugin to a numerical data-only view to save on valuable screen real-estate.

For more creative applications, there is a useful Pre-Gain to push or reduce the incoming signal’s volume, meaning that the plugin can also function as a maximiser. Included are 5 different release modes to choose from including Linear, Transparent and Pumping, with the option of automatic release time calculation depending on content.

Overshoot Proof
