LA school esquire limiter is a envelope / pumping limiter.

The esquire limiter uses two algorithms to process sound; A standard "envelope" mode as well as a "pumping" mode which allows some very unique effects.

Designed to be fast and easy on the CPU; The envelope Mode uses at most 1.2% of Your CPU while the Pumping Mode 1.8 - 3.2%.

In pumping mode; at low threshold and ratio tolerances, the Esquire reacts much like a peak limiter in that it aggressively reduces volume. This however can be a great strength to create both effect and a more pleasing variety of normalization.

A smooth and sweet sound allows this limiter to be used at either the forefront in the master channel or track by track with little coloration and dissonance. Do be careful of the pumping mode however due to its intolerance of gain variance.

I was using this for a while, keep trying different mastering stuff. I keep them on on my master channel in ableton then master the track when done. This one is great, sounds great and you can really push your levels into it and get a clean sound out. Careful when you do that, if you turn it off and the "real" volume level is super loud, it will jump up in volume, fast, and LOUD lol

A fine free limiter, as good as many you have to pay for

Really really really like it, though it seems to have a neutral character, pumping doesn't make any difference. 64-bit?

I hope you enjoy this limiter. It has a realtime peak monitor which allows you to quickly see where all Your levels are at. The next version will have more presets and you'll be able to turn off the meter.
