What is a limiter?
A limiter is a compressor with greater than a 10:1 ratio. The ratio is the strength of the compressor. Limiters are the best way for engineers and producers to stop peaks from going beyond a defined audio decibel ceiling and above 0db. The most common use of a limiter is to put it at the end of the mastering chain to bring up the average level of you mix while limiting the peaks of the master. For a more in depth tutorial on limiting and how to use, it, check out this tutorial.
