Ben... j'ai tout perdu !!!Publié le 02/07/18 à 12:22
Superbes, les plugins de Waves, bonne qualité, mais les mises à jours font de mauvaises surprises. Avec l'installation de Central V10 je n'ai plus mes plugs !!! Chez Waves, ça fait vite des centaines d'Euros... Pas très pratique et pas très sympa Me réjoui de trouver la solution...
Simple numérique limitationPublié le 14/12/12 à 19:45 (contenu en anglais)
Waves plug-ins are know for being stable, and rarely have any bugs. The 'L1' plug-in has been around a long time and has been tried and tested in all popular DAWs.
The L1 limiter is easy to use. There is 'threshold' slider to adjust how much limiting is occurring. There is an 'output ceiling' slider if you want the signal to be limiter at a particular amplitude level. If you are using a limiter as the final plug-in on your mix bus, I definitely recommend setting the output ceiling to -0.3 or -0.5. The main reason to do this is to prevent inter-sample peaks. Digital limiting prevents the digital samples of a signal from exceeding a particular amplitude. However, when the digital signal is converter to analog, it is possible that the digital samples do not occur at the true 'peaks' of your signal. Because of this, the digital to analog converter will 'clip'. If you set your output ceiling to be less than 0.0, then the inter-sample clipping can be prevented.
I received the L1 plug-in because I purchased the 'Gold' bundle from Waves. I have several other limiters (Maxim, FG-X, MaxxVolume, etc.). The 'L1' is definitely not my 'go-to' limiter on my mix bus. The 'L1' has been around a long time, and digital limiting techniques have significantly advanced since it was released. At this time, I would definitely recommend checking out some never digital limiters (L2, L3) if you are specifically looking to get a mix bus limiter.
Digital limiting with a plug-in has a unique feature - 'look ahead' limiting. This means that the processor knows what it is going to 'limit' prior to having to process it. The 'L1' limiter was one of the first plug-ins to utilize this kind of processing. I don't recommend using the 'L1' for heavy compression. I notice that this plug-in doesn't sound very good when I have to really squash a signal. If you are going to use the 'L1', I would recommend only using it subtly.
The 'L1' can also be used for dithering a signal. This is a necessary processing step if you have recorded a signal at a bit rate (like 24 bits) but your mix down needs to be a different bit rate (16 bits).
Un limiteur de classique, mais dépasséePublié le 29/06/12 à 00:52 (contenu en anglais)
Running in Ableton Live 8 on my MacBook Pro with a 2.7Ghz Intel Core i7 processor and 4GBs of RAM, Waves' L1 Ultramaximizer is as smooth as clockwork, but worry not Windows users as this plug-in is cross compatible. Being fairly light with regards to overall CPU usage, it is stable and reliable even in situations where many other effects and VSTs are operating simultaneously. As far as performance is concerned, I just through the L1 on either an individual track, my sends, or my master, and set the parameters to boost the mix without clipping. I've had the L1 Ultramaximizer for almost four months now and although it has been far surpassed by the L2, L3, MaxxVolume et. al, I certainly don't regret my purchase.
Overall you can definitely pick up something in the Waves series that is a much better plug-in for loudness, but you will be hard pressed to find something more classic. Though limited compared to today's standards, I still use the L1 as a temporary device if I need a brick-wall limiter to keep a production in the works from clipping before it is mastered. My recommendation is to get something more recent, but if you are a true aficionado, you can pick the L1 up in its Native version, or in the Mercury bundle deal. Although I wouldn't endorse it, the Native version which was originally $150, it is now on sale for $64 on the Waves website. Not that bad deal I guess, but probably still more bang for your buck if you get the Mercury bundle deal and upgrade to something much better. Then at least you have it if you wanna try it.
Le plugin volume d'origine par WavesPublié le 06/07/11 à 03:16 (contenu en anglais)
Waves is great with both performance and stability. They are awesome when it comes to stability. I've never experienced a direct crash related towards utilizing this plugin inside any of my projects. The plugin itself doesn't take up too much RAM or processing power, either. While this is usually used on the final master buss, it's important to keep the RAM and processing usage as low as possible. The plugin is also cross platform compatible, so it'll work with nearly any computer out there. There is one issue, however. This is a 32 bit plugin. In a 64 bit world, that means you need to utilize a special bridge application to use this. On top of that, it's somewhat limited compared to the other plugins that are used for loudness.
The plugin is definitely showing its age, especially considering that other DAWs have their own adaptive limiter with a look-ahead function. I've used this plugin with success in the past, and it's still one of my go-to plugins if I'm not using the standard Logic plugins. That said, it lacks the options the other ones have, and that can be a bit of a deal breaker for some.
