Default Signum Audio Release BUTE Limiter 2

EDINBURGH, Scotland, July 1st 2020*Scottish developers Signum Audio are proud to announce the release of BUTE Limiter 2, a major upgrade and redesign of the widely celebrated BUTE Limiter.

BUTE Limiter 2 delivers “high fidelity, ultra-transparent true peak brickwall limiting with a streamlined and sleek user interface”

Video Overview:


Ultra-Transparent Limiting

BUTE Limiter 2 is driven by Signum Audio's novel limiting algorithm which is specifically designed for utmost transparency. For version 2 the algorithm has been further refined to deliver even better performance at extreme settings. Improvements to the algorithm include better bass response and support for shorter release times.

BUTE Limiter 2 features advanced adaptive auto release. The optimal release is calculated by analysing the audio input and dynamically adapting the release time. The auto release length can still be configured to fit different types of audio best, similar to traditional limiter release settings, but sounding much more natural than a fixed release length.**

As a result, BUTE Limiter 2 delivers smooth and ultra-transparent limiting that keeps the character of your master while taking care of any inter-sample peaks.

Comprehensive yet flexible UI

Whether you’re looking for an in depth analysis of your master or a compact readout - BUTE Limiter 2 can do it all.


BUTE Limiter 2 Features a resizable history view which lets you interactively examine true peak, gain reduction, threshold and output readings - you can choose to see an overview of your whole master or zoom in to a particular part. If any true peak overshoots are introduced via the post gain functionality, BUTE Limiter 2 will flag them prominently in the history with warnings. The history also supports re-metering via automatic DAW sync and will get updated if you change your limiter settings so you can see how your new settings affect your audio.


BUTE Limiter 2 also offers a meter bar view and for those with limited screen estate a very compact readout view.

Support for multiple workflows


BUTE Limiter 2 includes a Pre Gain to push or reduce the incoming signal’s volume before Limiting as well as Post Gain that will be applied after limiting.

The plugin can be configured to highlight either the limiter output or the overall output, that is limiter output with applied Post Gain. So whether you like to push the limiter via Pre Gain like a maximiser, or limit your signal and then use Post Gain to make up for the change in volume - BUTE Limiter 2 provides you with a streamlined display for your workflow.


Evenmore, Post Gain is complemented with an automatic Max Target functionality that allows you to set a maximum output target that you would like to reach once the limiter hits the threshold. The BUTE Limiter 2 algorithm will make sure that you never go past this Max Target.

Free Upgrade / Pricing

The plugin will be available for free to both BUTE Limiter and BUTE Loudness Suite users.

BUTE Limiter 2 is FREE for anyone who already owns BUTE Limiter or BUTE Loudness Suite.
