In the past while mastering music, I’ve used Logic’s native Adaptive Limiter plugin. I created a Gain stage before it, drove in some gain, and then used the Loudness plugin to check for LUFS, and then tweaked the gain accordingly until I hit my target of -12dB LUFS.
Today I bought Wave’s L3 plugin and I’m not sure how to handle this. I’ve been told in a tutorial I’m supposed to lower the threshold until the Attenuation starts hitting around 3. Easy to do, but makes the song super loud, more like -8dB LUFS.
So how do I then export at a lower volume like -12dB LUFS?
