 Audio Limiter

Q: What is the limiter and how does it work?

The limiter is a feature in VirtualDJ that helps prevents excessive sound output levels that can cause distortion and poor sound quality.

It will apply if the song output level exceeds 0dB. This will occur if either too much gain or positive EQ has been applied to the song. Unlike a traditional analogue mixer, digital sound cannot exceed 0dB. This will result in distortion and poor sound quality. The limiter helps avoid this by automatically reducing the output level where necessary so that it does not distort the audio and protects your sound system.
