FabFilter has released FabFilter Pro-L 2, promising a major update to the Pro-L limiter plug-in.

FabFilter Pro-L 2

The update includes four new limiting algorithms, a new true peak limiting mode, extensive standards-compliant loudness metering, surround support, and other features.

Modern is the new ‘best-for-all’ algorithm – Aggressive is for maximum loudness, suited to EDM or rock music; Bus is been designed for drums and limiting of individual tracks; while Safe’s goal is not maximum loudness, but to avoid distortion at all times.

The new true peak limiting feature in FabFilter Pro-L 2 makes it easy to hit a maximum true peak target. Combined with improved true peak metering and extensive loudness metering that’s compliant with the EBU R128, ITU-R BS.1770-4, and ATSC A/85 standards, Pro-L 2 can be used for any loudness normalisation.

The unique real-time level display is now even more effective with new innovative display modes, including an Infinite mode that shows all audio for a session. Moments of significant gain reduction are highlighted with peak labels to give additional insight in the limiting process. Last but not least, the interface has been carefully redesigned to be aesthetically pleasing with a perfectly optimised workflow.
