Maxwell Smart - Peak limiter / loudness maximizer
Maxwell Smart is a transparent true peak limiter / loudness maximizer with look-ahead.

It's designed to boost the overall loudness while maintaining transients without audible distortion. Maxwell Smart also has CPU-friendly 4x ISP (inter-sample peak) detection which is compliant with the latest ITU, EBU and ATSC recommendations.
  • Transparent true peak limiter / loudness maximizer with look-ahead.
  • Built-in ISP detection equivalent to 4x oversampling (without any of the artifacts or heavy CPU load).
  • Compliant with the latest ITU, EBU and ATSC recommendations for true peak detection.
  • Adjustable threshold and ceiling (-24dB ... 0dB).
  • 3 modes to control the sound: smooth, normal and loud.
  • Compensated latency of 4ms.
  • Support for all sample rates above 11.025kHz.
  • Ideal for mastering, or as a drum bus limiter for example.

This was not recognized by my XP SP3 DAW, Apparently, you need to have .NET framework which I do not have. Too bad; it gets great reviews everywhere. I went with LoudMax instead.

You know, you could probably just download the relevant .NET framework and you'd be fine.
