The Kjaerhus MPL-1 Pro SE is a limiter plug-in made for mastering and other purposes where the highest accuracy and quality are demanded. The MPL-1 Pro SE uses an over-sampled peak detecting algorithm to ensure that even high frequency peaks are accurately detected. This result in better high-frequency performance and it ensures that no overshoot or clipping occurs in the final D/A conversion. Look-ahead and a soft release-hold assist in keeping the compression smooth and transparent, even at high compression levels. The MPL-1 Pro SE uses a new stereo linking technique that allows peaks to be limited individually on each channel, while longer lasting gain reductions are linked. This technique ensures that peaks in one channel do not produce artifacts in the other channel, while the average compression still remains the same in each channel to avoid disturbances in the stereo balance. A PDR (Program Dependent Release) function is available to minimize pumping effect and increase loudness. The MPL-1 Pro SE also offers TPDF-Dithering for 8, 16 and 24 bit output resolution. Four stereo meters show the peak input and output levels as well as compression and RMS-output. Parameters can be controlled with remote devices through MIDI-Learn.
