> analogue peak limiter (gangable for stereo)

<<Make this digital. With 24 bit, a limiter is redundant as you can have
several bits of headroom. For those rooted in analogue recording,
provide a limiter but one which can be "undone" digitally. Avoid a
hole after a peak by making recovery fast which is possible digitally.>>

A digital limiter would be post conversion, therefore missing the point of =
a limiter entirely, which would be to avoid crashing the ADC. It would need=
 to be analog to be of any use.
