(OTOH, it is possible to write a DSP plugin that will cancel this limiter...)
Any chance you could build that?
This effect looks more like "Hard -6dB limiter", actually. Make sure that input signal's amplitude <= 0.5 (aka -6.02 dB FS) and the results will be much better.
hmmm, I am afraid I did not understand. What looks like "hard -6"?, The Winamp Bridge? Or the effects mentioned by the other users?
If for example I use this Winamp Bridge to load the Winamp version of the Electric-Q plugin (the other version keeps crashing all the time), would I have to "Make sure that input signal's amplitude <= 0.5 (aka -6.02 dB FS)"?
