SSL X-Limit

PRESS RELEASE — Oxford, England — Solid State Logic continues to expand its SSL Complete subscription offering with its latest plugin, X-Limit. X-Limit is an essential tool for a range of applications, including recording, mixing, mastering and live sound, given its extremely low latency performance. Producers, engineers and other content creators will appreciate its ease of use in the studio as an effective means of increasing the loudness of tracks, buses and masters — without clipping.

Jon Sandman, plugins Product Manager at SSL:

We are delighted at this robust new addition to our plugin portfolio, giving users another indispensable mixing tool that is both powerful and simple to use. Whether you are looking for extremely transparent limiting, colour and punch, or classic SSL glue, X-Limit has you covered.

As with other SSL plugins, X-Limit excels at delivering concise visual feedback as well as providing a wide-ranging feature set and sonic options. The unique steering and ducking meters indicate how the limiting process might influence the stereo image of your signal and provides visual feedback on how to minimise stereo degradation while using the channel link control. Meantime, the all-in-one waveform and threshold display lets you easily set your threshold and ceiling against the incoming signal level.

SSL X-Limit is available now for $99, with an introductory price of $69 until August 28, or as part of the SSL Complete subscription from $14.99 per month. It requires macOS 10.15 or later, an AU, VST, or AAX plugin host, and is both Intel and Apple Silicon (M1) native.
