What does that mean?
-60 dB is almost silence.
"multipler" is not an English word.

What's the job? Sometimes we can get it that way. It's not useful when somebody posts with detail analysis of the tools...and nothing else.

Audacity doesn't do anything while you record, so if you're looking for a recording limiter, you may have to look somewhere else.

Totally. The new Limiter effect is a lot fancier and better sounding than the old ones. The harder you make it and working up through limiter and clipper the more intense and stiffer the sound. I've been recommending the soft limiter for AudioBook readings along with some other custom software. It can gently reduce peaks so they don't go over -3dB (the audiobook limit) and nobody can hear it working.

If you need a stiffer sound, you may need one of the other options.
