OVC-128 is a massively-oversampled soft/hard clipping effect in AudioUnit, AAX and VST plug-in formats for professional music production applications.
A common use for this plug-in is hard-clipping before the final peak limiter. This is an effective approach in contemporary electronic music when loudness is boosted using a clipper plug-in while minor excessive peaks are absorbed by a final peak limiter that applies no additional gain itself.
Clipping the tracks via OVC-128 is practically similar to clipping using high-quality outboard analog gear. At 44.1kHz source sample rate, the internal audio sample rate of OVC-128 is a whopping 5.6 MHz!
A perfect combination for contemporary electronic music production is OVC-128 followed by Voxengo Elephant mastering limiter in EL-C mode. This combination produces both energy and smoothness.
Note: OVC-128 is a relatively CPU-demanding effect plug-in, it requires a higher-end processor for comfortable use. Performing 128X-oversampled clipping on a single stereo track is computationally similar to performing simple clipping on 1000 tracks.
