Blue Cat's Protector is a 0dB stereo brickwall limiter with adjustable dynamics response. Blue Cat say that it will typically find its place on the master bus of your DAW to protect your audio output from overshoot, limit the general volume and improve the perceived loudness, thanks to a very transparent frequency response.
Blue Cat tell us that, despite its very simple set of controls, Protector offers a wide range of sounds and it is also suitable as a track limiter for more creative effects such as distortion, pumping or heavy limiting.
Beyond its dynamics processing features, Protector also offers a powerful side chain capability thanks to its MIDI CC output. The company say that this unique technique not only lets you do side chain limiting but also parameters modulation: control any parameter of any plug-in to create powerful side chain effects in real time.
