2022 NAMM Show: Apogee’s New Soft Limit is Free plugin



At the 2022 NAMM Show, Apogee introduced new Soft Limit plugin. The Soft Limit feature has been found on Apogee converters since 1991, when the company released its first standalone converter in the shape of the AD-500, and now it is released as a free plugin.


This “simple but highly effective” processor is designed to emulate the characteristics of tape, adding analogue-style harmonics and subtle warmth. It works by ‘rounding’ your audio’s transients, increasing perceived loudness and taming extraneous digital peaks.


In addition, there is a Drive knob for when you want to add extra crunch and additional thickness that won’t sound harsh.


Soft Limit  Plugin will be available later in June . You can sign up to be alerted to its availability on the Apogee website.
