Completing this 4 part series featuring Ozone 7’s devices is the Vintage Limiter. Watch part 1, part 2 and part 3.

The very capable Maximizer module has been the de facto gold standard for software master bus final limiting for years, and the Ozone 7 version of it got some great new features.

But the Maximizer now has a compatriot in the Vintage Limiter, an entirely new module based on the “Tube” mode found in previous versions of Maximizer.

Inspired by the Fairchild 670 hardware limiter, this module is intended for applications where a less aggressive, warm, smooth dynamic limiting is desired. Think downtempo and ambient – not your go-to Dubstep crusher.

And its not just for the master bus! In this video, Warp Academy Lead Trainer Jake Perrine walks you through using the Ozone 7 Vintage Limiter on a hip-hop sample.
