Compressor/expander designed for an extremely transparent action with natural and silky response.
The L1V is a professional limiter/maximizer plug-in.
This unit provides extremely transparent action with a natural and smooth response allowing it to be used both to control the dynamics of single tracks and to maximize the level of the final mix.
Particular care has been taken in creating an algorithm that assures high precision limiting action.
- extremely transparent limiting action
- 64 bit internal precision
- highly optimized DSP code
- ultra clean and noiseless processing
- look-ahead function
- delay compensation on hosts supporting PDC
- hard/soft knee
- factory presets
- parameter values can be entered manually
- fully automatable (depending on host application)
- stereo output (stereo->stereo)

A limiter adjusts the audio signal to ensure that the processed output does not exceed a specified level. The high precision algorithm of L1V warrants that the output level never reaches a value beyond the set threshold and this is done maintaining transparency and warm tonal response.
Used as a level maximizer, the L1V makes the mixes sound louder with the punch so often required in contemporary productions.
I’m really impressed by the transparency this compressor has. With this plugin it’s so easy to compress; unnoticeable, very good.
Nice looking and easy to use interface. Great compressor!
Wow, I had no idea the plug-ins were this great! I have worked with them on a 1 minute drum track for a few hours and I am amazed at the quality. I am sold, these are the plugs needed to create pro sound within host recording apps.
What’s most impressive about the CX1V is the transparency. This is not a compressor that encourages “squashing”-type special effects, but you can easily restrict the dynamic range of everything from individual instruments to program material while retaining a very natural sound…if you crave a quality compressor, check out the demo of this fine plug-in.
…ANWIDA delivers what it promises…The sound is consistently transparent, and the signal dynamic range compresses smoothly even at extreme settings. In our tests, for example, we found that the CX1V is effective in softening transients, such as from drum kits, without adding any coloration. Sometimes the transparency was so effective overall that we often checked to make sure the compressor was active…Since most musicians are usually concerned with compression rather than expansion of dynamic range, it is easy to forget that the CX1V is also an expander. However, the expansion capability worked just as well and displayed the same virtues of transparency and smoothness…In addition, the demand on CPU usage is very low, which means that on most computers there should be little problem running as many instances of the CX1V as needed for multi-track recording. In general, this uncomplicated, straightforward compressor/expander is a reliable workhorse. It does the job it’s supposed to do, and it does it very well.
I wanted you to know that they are fantastic! Just what I need for the voice work that I do. Thanks for making me sound GREAT!
Beautifully conceived, Anwida plug-ins never disappoint. Highly recommended!
- Fixed: rare UI glitches on some DAWs (e.g. FL Studio)
- Fixed: blank UI with custom display scaling on HiDPI monitors
- Improved: new demo mode (sine tone replaced by silence)
- Improved: smoother parameter changes
- Improved: performance optimization
- Fixed: low volume level on some DAWs (e.g. PreSonus Studio One)
