Mastering Limitless Intelligence

New FAST Limiter plugin and FAST Bundle.

By

29 July 2022

The Collective from Focusrite is a creative hub aiming to provide top quality plugins to its users and assist them in their music making. Completing the FAST Bundle is the latest addition, the FAST Limiter. The plugin is designed to help musicians finish music and get their tracks to a release-ready standard thanks to a powerful AI and deep controls to craft their sound. This is a mastering tool that avoids presets by using AI to apply settings to the track’s overall sound.

The AI analyses audio to carefully select settings unique to the sound’s characteristics. The ‘Reference Mastering’ feature allows users to take the key sonic characteristics of a favourite songs and apply them to their tracks. Users can also implement AI to get a solid foundation, then dive deeper to take a mix further by adjusting ‘Gain’, ‘Saturation’, and ‘Resonance’. 

With AI doing the heavy lifting — by setting the parameters unique to the track’s characteristics — users can quickly get the most out of the mastering experience via simple adjustments of Bass, Resonances, Saturation, and Transients settings. 

‘Detailed’ view presents the full controls with FAST Limiter providing a solid AI foundation, and letting the user focus on Gain, Limit, and Speed settings to adjust the limiter and volume output. Recreate the sonic characteristics of the user’s favourite tracks with ‘Reference Mastering’ and adjust the parameters in ‘Detailed’ view to achieve the desired sound. 

There is a choice of three unique flavours — Modern, Neutral, or Aggressive. These change how FAST Limiter influences the track’s sound. Users can see how the plugin shapes their sound with FAST Limiter’s intuitive graphic visualiser which responds to changes in real time allowing for quick, well-informed decisions to be made.
