Default Brickwall Limiter - Shootout

Hey guys,

Another post had me debating comps. So, I thought I'd head home and run a shootout to have a listen.

I imported a song from Norah Jones at full res(16bit/44.1) and cut out a section to test.

I tested each limiter with a ceiling of 0db and a threshold of...
-6db (first link)... giving me around a 3db gain reduction average.
-10db (second link)... giving me around a 7-9db gain reduction average.

I used in this order

Waves L1
Waves L2
Waves L3LL Ultra
Massey L2007
Digidesign Maxim

They were all RTAS plugs (bounced real time) on the multi-channel setting.

The file from the link below is in the order above, with the original audio first, and about 5 second gaps between each.

I know this is a post forum, and the material is music, but thought it was academic at the very least.

Have a listen
