Standard Hard Clipper


This block clips off portions of signal voltages above and/or below certain limits. In other words, the circuit limits the range of the output signal.


Click the icon to switch among the clipper options: Hi, Low, or both. Enter upper and lower limits in their text fields. This algorithm can be grown to support multiple input/output pairs for multi-channel audio.
