Signum Audio says that, if you're looking for high fidelity pro-audio limiting, look no further that their Bute Limiter. They tell us that it is a smooth and transparent True Peak Limiter delivers superior sound quality for use on your final master or individual tracks during mixing. Here's a description in their own words...

Designed with absolute transparency in mind, the BUTE Limiter delivers beautifully smooth limiting with no compromises. Our advanced algorithms have specifically been developed to provide pinpoint precision while maintaining total transparency, preserving the fidelty of your original audio and avoiding unwanted artifacts or alterations.

We only use highest quality linear phase upsampling in our algorithms. We have designed our novel limiting algorithms from scratch to guarantee no true peak overshoots helping make this the ultimate mastering limiter for broadcasters and producers. You can see precisely how much of your audio is being taken off on the highly informative graph.

The minimalistic user interface makes it simple to get great sound from our limiter. Easily adjust Gain and Release to tweak your audio just how you want it, seeing clear and precise readings displayed throughout. Automatic re-metering enables you to see in realtime how your output changes when you play your track back after adjustments. Alternatively, you can easily collapse the window to a numerical data-only view to declutter your session and save on valuable screen real-estate.

With 5 Different release modes to choose from including Linear, Transparent and Pumping, with optional automatic release time calculation depending on content. By using the Pre-Gain you can use it as a maximiser for extra versatility.


All of our plugins work with Mac (>10.9) and Windows (>8.1), and are compatible with 64-bit VST, AU and AAX. The plugin comes in Stereo or Surround versions, with Surround providing additional multi-channel support for up to 10 channel Atmos.
