2 LIMITER PRO TIP

IT TURNS OUT 2 IS BETTER THAN 1

MAY 08, 2018

Getting a loud mix or at least a commercially competitive mix in terms of loudness can be hard. Especially when you're just starting out.

โ€‹

I often use two limiters on my mix buss or my main stereo output when I produce to make sure my mixes are always loud. Before we get ahead of ourselves, no I'm not a huge proponent of the never ending loudness wars, I just know if I show a client or a peer a mix and it's 4 dB quieter than the music they just listened to, they might think it lacks professionalism.

You do have to be careful anytime you use a limiter on your master. You don't want to overdo it and you need to know how to mix into a compressor or limiter. But with the right settings, your mixes can be loud and clean. That's where using two limiters instead of one comes into play.
