Nothing wrong with mixing into limiter, LOADS of us do it.... comes off when it goes to mastering though....

Analogue limiter maybe, why mix in to a digital limiter?, it brings nothing to the game except destruction.
I just can`t see one single point of doing it.

I don't mix into a limiter myself, but I do know an/the advantage... you can hear which frequencies are too loud as they start to distort in the limiter. I.E. your subs are too loud / out of balance with the rest of the mix - when you pump them into a limiter on the master channel this becomes very obvious.

Subs will always take precedent though as they contain the most energy, it`s not an accurate way of judging your spectral balance.

Only time a limiter should be on a master bus at production stage is when all is "done" just to see how the mix holds together if it's being pushed two - three dB. Spot any problems if any then adjust and take away the limiter.

After some time, the more experience you gain and the more you learn, the less you will need to utilize that technique.

I never mixed into anything on the master. On the other hand I don't give a shit if people do so.

Like GG Allin said: No Rules !!!!
