Device Overview

Name/Version: BlastHard - transparent mixing Hard-Clipper 1.0
Author: Crampe  
Description: Those ultra-fast peaks that even your dog can't hear and that eat decibels of your precious headroom. Do you even know they exist?

BlastHard is here, simple, elegant, effective, an essential mixing tool. Yes you need, clever, hard-clipping!

You're not supposed to hear its effect, you're supposed to gain headroom transparently - it's about 1 to 2-3dB (already a lot!) for every track where the device is used. You'll be surprised by the cumulative effect.

Neat Push mapping indeed ;-)

You need Max 8.1.6 minimum or you'll miss the cute scope.

The device has been tested in L10 and L9, but maybe it even works inside L8.

Ok, how s that big coding companies make worse clippers than you ? You have nailed it in max ! Awesome tool man, I ll test it out in the studio today and will support you if I keep it in my racks !

Compared to one of the most used clipper I got and really expensive, your m4l device keeps more lows and definition, this is definitely a best kept secret plugin I ll use ! Glad I found it ! Direct Support !

Maybe a clean limiter in the future ?

I gotta say this is super handy and quality. well done.

Hey buddies!

So cool and fun to read your nice comments!

This is the most simple piece of DSP ever, there's no secret sauce in this one actually, so it's quite cool that you're prefering it over expensive plugins... and quite alamring too about what's really inside these expensive plugins!
A clipper shouldn't be expensive, the hardest part is the GUI design :-)

If you have a minute, it'd be great if you could rate the device at its Gumroad product page, that'll be much appreciated!

There's zero chance I'll do a "clean limiter", sorry. Live's one is good enough for me, and I even have a couple 3rd party ones if I want to go fancy on a cloudy day, so I really don't need one more... and I only patch M4L devices that I need in the first place. Sorry.

take care
