Using multiband limiting

Multiband Limiting splits the input audio signal into multiple frequency bands, each with its own Limiter. The main advantage of a multiband is that a loud event in one frequency band won't affect the gain reduction in the other bands, that means if something like a loud kick drum will cause low frequencies to be limited, but the Mid and High-frequencies won't be effected. This allows you to get a more controlled hotter signal with far less limiting with the typical Single-band Limiter. Here's how it works. In this case we're going to be looking at a Waves L3 MultiMaximizer, and, as you can see, it's broken down into five bands: 2, 3, 4, 5.

And we have Very Low, Low, Mid, High-Mid, and Highs. Now the first thing we are going to do is set our Output Ceiling, I like to set it -0.2 because I like that extra little bit of headroom that you get from it. And you don't hear the difference anyway so that kind of works from me better. But -0.1 is what a lot of pro-mastering engineer...
