LA school esquire limiter is aenvelope / pumping limiter.
The esquire limiter uses two algorithms to process sound; A standard “envelope” mode as well as a “pumping” mode which allows some very unique effects.
Designed to be fast and easy on the CPU; The envelope Mode uses at most 1.2% of Your CPU while the Pumping Mode 1.8 – 3.2%.
In pumping mode; at low threshold and ratio tolerances, the Esquire reacts much like a peak limiter in that it aggressively reduces volume. This however can be a great strength to create both effect and a more pleasing variety of normalization.
A smooth and sweet sound allows this limiter to be used at either the forefront in the master channel or track by track with little coloration and dissonance. Do be careful of the pumping mode however due to its intolerance of gain variance.
