Old fashioned limiter. Display not working from new.
JCP 01, 10.02.2021
I respect TC's products and have used them successfully for over 25 years. The Brickwall HD is a great concept and for me, the tactile and effortless hardware integration is very valuable, but there are three issues with this product as it currently stands, 1. The lack in Q.C. My unit was faulty and I have understood that several other users have experienced the same issue. 2. The hardware controller is too much like a toy. The buttons have no sense of authority and the display (when it actually works) have a lot of bleed and is therefore hard to read. The whole unit is also simply too small. 3. The actual limiter I found close to unusable as a mastering limiter on 90% of the material I've tried it on. Sonically it's nice and warm and the soft clipping feature handles the audio nicely when used in moderation, but the long release times on the limiter means that even at 1dB gain reduction you can hear it pumping. The algorithms used supposedly share genetics with the System 6000, but to my ears that is a many many branches away on the family tree. It is of course possible that future updates will improve this plugin and thus provide users with an adequate tool that can compete with likes of Ozone and PSP, but right now, it's a gimmick and have therefore no place in a professional studio.

Licht und viel Schatten
Florian800, 24.11.2020
Zunächst mal: Der Limiter ist klasse. Der Algorithmus aus dem TC 6000 ist noch immer auf der Höhe der Zeit. Zusätzliche Features wie LUFS-Messung/Automation - grandios.
Wie mein Rezensionskollege hier auch schon geschrieben hat, hatte auch mein Display beim Erstgerät einen Wackelkontakt. Und was für einen. Es kann sein, dass meine Version aus einer Charge stammt, die an dieser Stelle fehlerhaft war/ist und ich hoffe, dass das Ersatzgerät diesen Fehler nicht mehr aufweist. TC electronic war für mich immer eine Marke der obersten Liga und hat sowohl Software-seitig wie Hardware-seitig großartige Produkte hergestellt. Sowas sollte eigentlich nicht passieren

Update: Thomann hat das defekte Gerät ausgetauscht. Jetzt läuft alles wie geschmiert. Für mich ist der Controller mehr als nur ein weiteres Gimmick auf dem Arbeitsplatz. Es ist, wie das DVR 250 (ebenfalls von TC), eine willkommene Erleichterung im Produktionsalltag und ein gut funktionierender Controller. Einziges Manko: Die Knöpfe könnten einen wertigeren Druckpunkt haben. Die Potis sind aber sehr wertig.

Enttäuschung
Georgyj, 25.10.2020
An sich ein feines Produkt für alle, die gerne Knöpfchen drehen. Gute Optik und Haptik, nur leider....... Der Sound. Klingt wie 15 Jahre zurück in der Zeit. Im Vergleich zu einem aktuellen Limiter, wie etwa Fabfilter L2 oder Ozone hat das Teil ganz einfach nicht annähernd eine Chance. Pumpen bereits bei sehr geringem Ansprechen, Bässe weg, Snare verschwindet und alles klingt flach. Bei meiner Remote hat noch daz das Display einen Wackelkontakt.

Excellent Limiteur
kirkounet, 11.02.2021
J'utilise ce limiteur sur tout: Drum, Mix, Mastering

Il est transparent et conserve les transients mieux que mon vieux limitless, je l'ai aussi testé contre le limiteur de Izotope, la même chose le HD-DT est celui qui maintient dans mes écoutes le mieux les dynamiques et la clarté.
L'effet de pompage peut se ressentir légèrement lorsque le limiteurs est poussé à fond et le fait d'avoir inclus le clipper dans le HD-DT en fait un outil redoutable, ce dernier permet de détendre le limiteur, de gagner en volume tout en conservant l'intégrité global du son.

La possibilité de définir un LUFS et de laisser le limiteur faire le travail pour vous est un game changer! Pourquoi tout les limiteurs n'ont pas cette fonction?

Le contrôleur du fait de sa simplicité permet de porté des modifications les yeux fermé et de ne se concentrer que sur le son.
A vrai dire Je ne peux plus m'en passer

Un point que je demanderais à TC pour ce limiteur c'est de nous donner la possibilité d'aller plus loin dans la modification de la Release

Je suis hyper convaincus et je pense me pencher sur d'autre produits TC de ce style à l'avenir.
