Where does the limiter sit in your mastering chain? Can you use more than one limiter to master? How much level should you push into the limiter when you master?
Watch and listen to Episode 4 of ‘Are You Listening?’ as professional mastering engineer and iZotope direction of education Jonathan Wyner demonstrates different modes of limiting, why level matching is important and how to do it, how limiters affect sound quality, level considerations for streaming platforms, the importance of IRC (instant release control) limiting modes in Ozone’s Maximizer, and more.
Note: Some audio examples you hear have been altered from their original recordings to bring attention to the core concepts highlighted in the ‘Are You Listening?’ series.
