    Hi
    I want to set a “limiter” for the LR out.
    So i select the LR and setting the compressor threshold 0db and ratio inf.
    But i realized that this affects only the input singals to the LR, and when i raise the LR fader the output signal “exceeds” 0db.
    Probably this is normal, but is there any way to do it?

    ps. i feed active speakers and i don’t have an external processor or limiter so that’s re reason i want it.

    Thanks!

    It is simple. Just don’t do that :). You are just creating makeup gain. Leave the master alone unless you need it. Let the comp/limiter handle to signal hitting the mix buss.

    GCumbee yes that’s true but i’m refering to accidentally raise of the LR fader.

    Pull the compressor threshold down to -10dB, then the +10dB gain on the fader brings it back to unity…

    Personally I’d put a soft knee on it as well, I just prefer the slightly gentler approach to limiting.

    FWIW, if you’re just looking not to bump the fader past a certain point, a piece of gaff tape across the main fader track works great.

    Like I said just don’t do it. I fly airplanes. There are things you just DON’T touch or move.

    …. A piece of gaffa above a fader… Really? We’re in the digital time now… Moving-Faders!

    Agree with GCumbee: Don’t touch it or get another limiter between Qu and the Speakers!

    LOL… Yeah, my bad, forgot about that. On my Presonus SL (no flying faders) I did this. The drummer threw a towel across the stage once during setup while mp3’s were playing and happened to hit the master fader perfectly. That’s when I put tape over it.
