  • Fitted with an intuitive, easy to operate control panel
  • Enhances the perceived loudness, warms up and brightens the audio signal, depending on the DRIVE settings
  • Has an independent control over DRY and WET signal
  • The signal path is 100% analog, but all the signal switches and potentiometers are digital
  • The LINK option allows the control of both channels through left channel only
  • The 1% potentiometers used guarantee precise concurrency of both channels
  • EMPEROR LIMITER is an analog device, accurate and reliable
  • EMPEROR LIMITER is an analog dynamics processor, which depending on the settings can work as a compressor, limiter or harmonics distortion generator. It was designed for creating the original, vivid, analog sound for instruments, subgroups and the whole mix

    The very core of the EMPEROR LIMITER is a FET transistor responsible for sound reduction and introduction of a small amount of low order harmonics, and itís design is inspired by the limiters and transistor compressors from the 60-ties. Apart from that EMPEROR includes many original solutions stemmed from a long-term experience of Looptrotter in construction of dynamics processors, which guarantees unique sound.

    EMPEROR LIMITER is equipped with two, independently working filters embedded in the control circuit. This gives the possibility to create the timbre without unwelcome phase shifting: in case of cutting the low frequencies in the control signal, the EMPEROR acts more transparent and natural with the signals rich in low frequencies like kick drum, or bass guitar. This can decrease the distortion of low frequencies and the pumping effect; while boosting the high frequencies in the control signal the EMPEROR acts like an analog de-esser, or very fast compressor for bright and dynamic instruments.
