Anders, for a limiter that is is simple and memory free see the
description of DBX Type IV at http://www.dbxpro.com/white.htm and select
the "Type IV Conversion System" from the listbox. From the paper it
seems that it just uses a logarithmc table which maps -4 dB to +12 dB
into the region +4 dB to 0 dB.
