Transparent, mastering-grade brickwall limiter with k system peak/RMS meters and EBU R128 / ITU-R BS.1770 compliant ISP/true-peak limiting.


TB Barricade is a simple yet very effective and transparent brickwall limiter that is suitable for individual tracks as well as mastering work. It supports digital peak meters, RMS meters, and gain/attenuation meters, all with peak hold functionality. The meter scales also support the k-system (k12, k14, and k20) layout and ballastics. Last but not least, true peak / inter-sample peak (ISP) detection circuits that are in line with EBU R-128, ATSC A/85 and ITU-R BS.1770 allow to generate true-peak compliant audio signals.
