Everywhere you read, you read of a switchable soft limit. But where is it?? Can't find it in the manual and in none of the menus!
MichaelDow do you mean a “limiter” like a compressor?
From the Addendum to the manual for firmware 4.5.1:
“Adaptive Soft Limiter Algorithm
“All outputs feature a build in soft limiter algorithm. The sophisticated algorithm prevents the Virus from clipping in case an output exceeds its headroom. The algorithm works transparent and doesn’t color the signal unless it clips. It won’t do magic though - heavily clipped signals cannot be repaired and will continue to sound distorted. Mildly clipped signals will remind you of a smoothly clipping valve instead of a harsh digital clipping.”
You can’t control this effect. It’s automatic.
I see, thanks. I never found that part. Just read loads about a "switchable soft limiter" I've had this for at least a decade and never thought of it until i read it a few times recently.
Cheers for clearing up
