Clipping Sound
If internally Digital Audio programs can manage any normalized signal (thanks to floating point numbers in particular), this signal has to be bound at the output, in order to be sent to D/A converters or mass storage devices.

In the first Digital Audio programs, the signal was not lopped and we got a "digital distortion" due to computation overflow. This used to produce big clicks in the sound. The signal was corrupted.

Others, as shown below, used to manage computation overflow through some sort of mathematical modulo or value rotation.

Finally systematic lopping has been implemented today in most audio software.

This is a simple truncation that simulates pretty well a basic C-MOS analog distortion.


BrickWall Sound Limiter.

C-Limiter is an and powerful Compressor/Limiter working with an automatic elliptic compression algorithm and a null limit attack time. It means that C-Limiter does not generate phase shifting and can be used in a multitrack session. C-Limiter is fast and should become your favourite pocket Limiter.

  • Quick Documentation (overview).
  • Specifications.
  • How to buy !?.

  • C-Limiter includes a new type of compression : the automatic elliptic compression. Following the transfer graph above, this pure compression without threshold is able to boost the signal by increasing the power of the sound.

    Predictive Limitation.

    Dedicated to the master output, the predictive B-Limiter is a new class of limiter between the envelope follower and AGC (Auto Gain Compensation).

  • Quick Documentation (overview).
  • Specifications.

  • Predicting levels by delaying the signal allows level limiting while keeping a better sound integrity.
