SSL Complete Subscription Expands With Addition Of New X-Limit Plug-In

Designed to provide a quicker and easier way to increase the loudness of tracks, buses and masters without clipping.

Solid State Logic has announced the expansion of its SSL Complete subscription with the addition of the new X-Limit plug-in, available now in several formats including VST2, VST3, AAX and AU as part of the growing SSL Complete subscription from $14.99 per/m (Ts&Cs apply).

X-Limit is the fifth new plug-in added to the subscription offering in recent months. Intended for applications that include recording, mixing, mastering and live sound, it’s designed to supply an effective means of increasing the loudness of tracks, buses and masters without clipping.

“We are delighted at this robust new addition to our plug-in portfolio, giving users another indispensable mixing tool that is both powerful and simple to use,” says Jon Sandman, plug-ins product manager at SSL. “Whether you are looking for extremely transparent limiting, color and punch, or classic SSL glue, X-Limit has you covered.”

X-Limit provides proprietary steering and ducking meters that indicate how the limiting process might influence the stereo image of the signal and provides visual feedback on how to minimize stereo degradation while using the channel link control. Meantime, the all-in-one waveform and threshold display is designed to allow users to easily set threshold and ceiling against the incoming signal level.

X-Limit Overview:

Apple M1 Native Support: X-Gate is a universal binary, and features M1 Native support.

All-in-one visualiser: The all-in-one waveform visualiser and threshold/ceiling sliders let the user easily set parameters against the incoming signal level.

True Peak: True Peak mode engages SSL’s True Peak algorithm, helping to ensure that inter-sample peaks are effectively limited and providing momentary and max True Peak value readouts.

Channel Link: The Ducking and Steering meters provide intuitive visual feedback to understand the effect of limiting on the stereo, helping guide users towards the ideal amount of channel linking for minimum stereo degradation.

Styles function: Users can pick from four carefully designed limiter characteristics, including Transparent, Glue, Punch and Auto, allowing quick, versatile options for any occasion.

Gain Lock: Allows uses to lock the applied gain to quickly demo different presets and styles for any given source material.

Mix Control: When using the limiter to add punch rather than catch peaks, the Mix control enables users to dial back the effect.

Along with the SSL Complete subscription, X-Limit will also be available at a cost of $99 ($69 until August 28, 2022). Go here for more specifics on X-Limit.
