cpu friendly peak limiter ?

    hi,
    I'm looking for a peak limiter, for protecting 14 output channels from clipping. I've tried the komp-multichannel patch from the examples - but couldn't get it to work as a brickwall limiter. omx.peaklim~ is too cpu-expensive, because I would need 8 instances...
    It doesn't need to sound very good and using the sum of all channels as a sidechain input (like komp-multichannel) would be ok. It's just for safety...
    Any ideas ?
    cheers, jan.

      have you tried limiting your signals using lookup tables?

      like putting linear growth of db values as a condition to check --- for substracting db level after that positive condition occurs ?

      Provided your signal levels are already 'in the ballpark', you might even consider overdrive~. Should be pretty easy on the CPU at least...
      Edit: just realized the OP is now pretty old...
