Is the Boss LMB-3 a compressor?

Despite having ‘Limiter’ and ‘Enhancer’ in the product name, the Boss LMB-3 is basically what we would normally refer to as a bass compressor pedal.

What’s the difference between a compressor and a limiter?

The ratio is the main difference between a compressor and a limiter. A compressor has a low ratio that turns down SOME of the volume when it goes above the threshold. A limiter has a huge ratio that turns down ALL of the volume that goes above the threshold.

What does a limiter guitar pedal do?

A limiter is just a compressor with a high ratio, and is used to make sure a signal doesn’t get much louder than the threshold level. Remember that a comp/limiter works by turning down the volume, so softer background sound will be ducked, which may make the compression more obvious.

Should you mix with a limiter?

If you limit while you mix, you will end up fighting with the limiter. You will have a skewed idea of your dynamics, and musicality can easily be lost. This isn’t a good thing. Don’t make things harder on yourself by putting a limiter where it won’t shine.

When should I use a limiter?

Limiters can be used in any situation where you need to cap the intensity of a signal at a defined level. For example, they can work well on percussion in situations where some hits are much louder than others and need to be tightly controlled.

How do you set a limiter?

To set a limiter, first identify the loudest section of a song. This is the part where the limiter will react most drastically. It is best to check for distortion in this area. Once you’ve found the loudest part of the song, insert a limiter of your choice on your master bus and listen to your recording.

How does a limiter make things louder?

A limiter is a compressor with an infinite threshold, and the reason it sounds louder is because you CAN turn it up louder without it clipping using the gain makeup.

Should you master with limiter?

What is an exciter pedal?

Aphex has done a recent redesign of their guitar pedals, streamlining their Bass, Acoustic, and Guitar Xciter pedals into one unit – now simply called the Xciter (MSRP $249). Designed to add clarity and tightness to your guitar sound without altering the tone, the Xciter acts as more of an enhancement than an effect.

What should I set my limiter to?

The more gain reduction you have, the more you’ll hear the artifacts of your limiter. In a good master, you don’t want to hear the limiter working; therefore, ideally the gain reduction limit you have on the limiter should be no more than 2.5 dB.

How do I use the enhancer and limiter?

The Enhancer amplifies the signal a little to avoid volume drops caused by the Limiter. The LEVEL knob sets the overall level of the effect. The ENHANCE control adjusts the intencity of the Enhancer and makes the sound clearer and sharper. The RATIO control sets the compression of the Limiter.
