I have Waves Mercury which include L1+ anniversary edition, L2, L3 series, etc… I really like the anniversary edition update of L1.
But I also have WLM Plus. WLM Plus is nice because it’s a limiter and meter all in one.
My question is… Is there any reason not to use WLM Plus as a limiter for music? I’m not squashing my music to extremes, by any means. It’s just a bit more convenient to use WLM Plus than L1, L2, or L3. My ears can’t hear a substantial difference when used at just moderate amounts of limiting – WLM Plus seems good to me.
Is there any technical reason I shouldn’t use WLM Plus as a limiter for music I release?
I’m trying to avoid “feel” based opinions. I know the UI in L1+ “feels” like it would be more appropriate for my needs — but forget that, I mean in reality - objectively.
Is there any REAL reason I should avoid WLM Plus in favor of L1 or L2? (I don’t want or need the multiband aspect of L3.)
Thanks for your advice.
