Soft Clipper

The Soft Clipper clips the peaks of the audio signal above 0 dB in a gradual way that sounds better then hard clipping.  It can be used as a limiter or to warm up the sound.

Input Gain - The amount of gain applied to the input signal.

Amount - How soft the clipping is.  It will hard clip when it's set to zero. The LED shows when it's hard clipping.

Output Gain - The amount of gain applied to the output signal.

Input Meter - Shows the input signal level.  For stereo sounds it shows the loudest channel.


Vintage vacuum tube audio equipment soft clips loud sounds, where transistor audio equipment hard clips them.
