When you load up FL Studio or Cubase (or whatever) it's pretty standard these days to listen back to the mix with and without a mastering limiter on the main outs - at least for bedroom producers it is.|
Skip back 15 years and you'd never mix through a limiter - that stuff was strictly for the mastering engineer. On a normal analog / digital desk you'd be working with huge headroom and the mix would not sound ACE until the mastering engineer did their bit.
