Sonos 4 is a software real time multiband FM processor for broadcasters. With a suitable sound card it is possible to turn a Windows PC into a broadcast limiter. The processor achieves its loudness through the use of a unique distortion masked final clipper (a distortion cancelled clipper). The sound quality and loudness is close to industry standard Optimods and Omnias.
