Peak Multichannel Limiter Plug-in

Elixir is a novel kind of program limiter carefully designed to accomplish a truly pure natural sounding result without altering the nature of the audio material and its timbre.

Intended to fulfil the requirements of the broadcast, post-production and mastering industry, Elixir provides real True Peak output level in accordance with the ITU-R.BS 1770 and EBU R128 norms, and for surround/multichannel operation Elixir provides up to eight channels of simultaneous processing.

Elixir's straightforward interface makes it exceptionally easy to achieve great results, even under a tight deadline. Simply set the input level, adjust the Threshold according to the amount of limiting desired, and finally enable Make Up for gain compensation and loudness addition - That's it!

Elixir is a novel kind of program limiter carefully designed to accomplish a truly pure natural sounding result without altering the nature of the audio material and its timbre.

Intended to fulfil the requirements of the broadcast, post-production and mastering industry, Elixir provides real True Peak output level in accordance with the ITU-R.BS 1770 and EBU R128 norms, and for surround/multichannel operation Elixir provides up to eight channels of simultaneous processing.

Elixir's straightforward interface makes it exceptionally easy to achieve great results, even under a tight deadline. Simply set the input level, adjust the Threshold according to the amount of limiting desired, and finally enable Make Up for gain compensation and loudness addition - That's it!

For truly delicate and fine processing tasks (mastering etc.) Elixir presents a new innovative concept called Stages, providing the option to set the algorithm to perform the limiting processing in multi-stages, in order to achieve even more precise and natural sounding results.

Example: If the threshold is set to -3 dB and the 'Stages' parameter set to 3, the first stage will limit at -1dB, the second stage will limit at -2dB and the third will limit at -3dB, with analyzing performed in each of the three stages.

The algorithm uses an oversampled representation of the audio sample as reference when defining the gain envelope, while the actual processing is applied only to the original none oversampled data, in order to reduce artefacts (like aliasing) and to achieve the most precise and excellent sounding result presenting none, or effectively reduced, conventional limiting pumping effects even during heavy processing.

In addition to Stages, Elixir present the option to run the algorithm in a higher resolution mode with even more detail put into the processing, obviously, at the cost of additional CPU-consumption.


Features:

- True Peak level metering and limiting
ITU-R-BS 1770 compliant
EBU R128 compliant

- Signal Processing Features
Input/Output gain controls for adjusting the levels before and after processing.
Bypass routes the incoming signal direct to the output for a true smooth transition between processed and clean signal.

- Preset and Parameter Handling

Preset/Parameter slots: To enhance the workflow the two Preset/Parameter slots, A and B, can be loaded with two full set of parameters at the same time. Apart from saving each preset, a "Global Preset" containing both the A and B settings, and the position of the "Morphing Slider", can be saved.

Parameter Morphing Slider with Automation: The Morphing Slider provides morphing between the parameter settings of slot A/B allowing for really creative and useful real-time tweaking. Enabling the Automation control button exposes the Morphing Slider to the host automation.

  • Flux Elixir Elixir v 3.0 Jan 29, 2013 MacOS X Intel
    Today, we are finally starting to release the AAX (Native & DSP) and 64-bit compatible versions of our software, built on our latest 64-bit version 3 framework, hereafter called v3. First out is the FREE BitterSweet v3 Transient Designer, and the Elixir v3 True Peak Limiter, and now when we have the framework ready, we are aiming at having all our software ported and available within Q1 this year.

    The v3 framework improves the performance dramatically (measured 500-1000 percent improvement for Elixir depending on host environment!) and for the graphic rendering the v3 framework includes our GPU-efficient 2D/3D graphic engine, first introduced in the Pure Analyzer System, based on the OpenGL standard optimizing the audio-to-visual experience utilizing the GPU on the computer's built in graphics card.

    processing Elixir v 2.3.4 Feb 25, 2012 MacOS X Intel
    New Feature - Mac & Windows - Elixir - Dynamic Channel Linking: Make the channels linkage dynamic according to the signal. It means; when On, the Channel Link will automatically move from 0 when High Dynamic (High transient) are detected and the desired value when no dynamic (low transient) are detected.
    Enhancement - Mac & Windows - Elixir - in addition to dBTP; dBFS output level is now also guaranty.
    Fixed - Mac - Elixir - Middle meter scale not displayed correctly
    Fixed - Mac - Elixir - GR meter values not visible in Logic Pro 9.1.6
    Fixed - Windows - Spat - Correct IR not always displayed
    Fixed - Mac & Windows - HEar - Can't recall some parameters on Cubase6
    Fixed - Mac & Windows - IRCAM Tools - I/O config not always reloaded correctly in VST
    Fixed - Windows - IRCAM Tools - Some plugins was shown as Trojan by some anti-virus
