Awesome! Use it for my drums (I like a lot of different effects with automation clips on it). If something is too heavy, it doesn't bother my mix anymore... Love it. Simple to use! <3

Simple and intuitive. Very useful on unruly toms; drums in general.

Can't get better than this. Perfect for drum compressor popping on peeks. Put it after the comp, this will get rid of the spike pops and will not change the sound either.

When mixing rock and metal, I use this plugin on drum samples and the drum buss, with 2-3 db of gain and 25-35% softness. It also works great on distorted bass. Instead of compressing the direct signal, send the bass to a parallel track with GClip. Turn the gain all the way up, and blend it in.

All 64bt vst(s) can be easily use for video editors like sony studio (64bt). It is important that all these plugs (gvst) are so light weight and capable of delivering pretty high audio quality. Thanks for making these sweet toys for us.

As an alternative to limiting, I use it on singnals with erratic spikes such as drums. The erratic spikes use up headroom on the final mix without contributing sonically. The GClip real-time graphics really help setting the clipping so that only the random spikes are clipped. Also unlike with the various Cubase dynamic plugins concerned with limiting and maximizing, you do not have to change the overall gain of a channel to limit the signal, i.e. get the signal into the limiting range. You can simply leave the signal as it is and *lower* the GClip ceiling to cut off the spikes. But keep in mind it's not a limiter. It's a clipper which will add a lot of distortion when used in large quantities because it operates on the waveform itself and does not "ride the volume fader".

I use this as the last effect on the chain in individual channels, as well as on the master channel to see what the output is visually. Works great for clipping unwanted transients and other artifacts. Great tool in the tool kit.
