W1 Limiter is a "brickwall limiter"
that is a clone of Waves L1-Ultramaximizer, with
"identical output" and an approximation of Waves L2.
Waves' L1 (and thus W1 - for compatibility reasons)
uses three times longer actual release time than the
standard RT60 metric. This means that if you set
50ms release in the limiter, it will actually yield
with 150ms standard RT60 release time, but users of
L1 should be familiar with it.
Starting from version 2.0 W1 Limiter also contains
adaptive release logic. The author tried to emulate
Waves L2, however could only do this approximately.
Also, unlike Waves, W1 allows changing release time
while in adaptive mode.
W1 Limiter is free.
