KClip has become a top producer’s and engineer’s choice in pop, rock, hip hop, EDM, audio post, sound design, and audio forensics.

Works well with my limiter

It's taken a while to get my head around how to set KClip up to work with a limiter (I'm using Pro-L) in my mastering flow. But after a lot of listening I think I have a chain that works well for me now - basically KClip in front of Pro-L with KClip shaving off enough to leave the limiter to shed about 2db when necessary. The limiter sounds better and because it's not working too hard it creates less out of phase bass energy to muddy the bottom end. So looks like KClip is staying in my Wavelab montage output now.

Really effective bit of kit!

This plugin is an absolute steal for the benefit on your mix!

Don't over compress. Us the KClip3!

I have just discovered the power of clippers for cleanly maximizing the loudness of your mixes and I'm blown away. This is the only clipper with a link function that I am aware of. The link function alone is well worth the price of admission. This plugin has found it's way on every single one of my mixes since I purchased it and I can't recommend it enough.

Great Clipper!

Love the sound characters of the KClip3! Wonderful clipper and loudness Maximizer indeed!
