Sophisticated Transparency

Designed to be an ultra-transparent master limiter, BRICKWALL HD protects your audio without ever sacrificing sonic impact. With its studio-grade algorithm built on the foundation of the original Brickwall Limiter from System 6000, it lets you increase the apparent loudness of your mix without losing audio quality.

Brick by Brick with BRICKWALL HD-DT

As a supplement to the classic, transparent limiter BRICKWALL HD sports a modern take on limiting. The loudness limiter safeguards your sonics for easy delivery to streaming services like Spotify, Apple Music, SoundCloud and Tidal. So, if you want your music make a lasting impression with casual listeners and audiophiles alike, this is the solution.

Last Line of Defense

Unlike most limiters that stop at 0 DBFS, BRICKWALL HD identifies the ever important inter-sample peaks and eliminates the risk of down-stream audio clipping. Our premium ISP limiting algorithm ensures clean and predictable results every time, and with the adaptive content-optimised limiter profiles you are guaranteed maximum sonic transparency.

Furthermore, add spice to taste with the built-in soft clipping curves. Specialized for use in the critical mastering phase, the soft clipping in BRICKWALL HD provides you with versatile performance and analog character without off-setting the balance of your mix.

At Your Fingertips

The optional hardware add-on for BRICKWALL HD gives you visual feedback for accurate signal and dynamics monitoring directly on the hardware interface. This combined with the comprehensive plug-in’s metering tools and statistics overview ensures that you will always have sufficient data to qualify your mastering decisions.
