Description: Voxengo Elephant is a PC VST mastering limiter. The most important characteristic of this software limiter is its limiting algorithm, which is characterized by maximum transparency. Unlike many existing limiters, this one does not flatten (does not smooth) the dynamic structure of the processed audio material, but gently peaks the signal and maximizes the volume of the sound without distortion by the “pumping” effect.
With the release of version 2.0, Elephant has become a highly competitive audio mastering product. It offers comprehensive settings for level measurement
limits and several signal limiting algorithms. Built-in linear-phase oversampling (oversampling – signal sampling at an increased frequency) – is the new standard in peak limiting and loudness maximization. Elephant also introduces a high-quality signal bit converter – Dithering with additional noise-shaping (noise-shaiping) – a method in which digital overtones (quantization noise) are removed using additional (most often high-frequency) noise.
