View Full Version : MD3 and Brickwall Limiter - How to prevent bus clipping?

Hi there
When I use MD3 and Brickwall Limiter one after another on a bus, I have to lower the output of the MD3 and add gain again at the limiter input stage. Otherwise the bus gets overloaded. But this approach reduces the resolution - is there a better way to daisy-chain these plugins?


Or is the Pro Tools bus so high-resolution that it doesn't matter when the MD3 is driven less "hot"?


I'm using PT 8.1.1 on HD 3 Accel

Hi,

Any plugin will have to have a level of at least -0.1db or ideally -0.2db below -0dbfs when feeding another plugin or going out of a channel or aux. providing you do this nothing should peak or clip etc.
