Logic Pro’s Adaptive Limiter is a tool for controlling the loudness of your records. It works by rounding and smoothing peaks in the signal, producing an effect similar to an analog amplifier being driven hard.
You can use the Adaptive Limiter to get maximum gain, without introducing digital distortion and clipping.
The Adaptive Limiter is typically used as the last plug-in in the mastering chain.
