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 4x ISP (inter-sample peak) detection to tame the 'invisible' peaks between regular sample peaks.
  • Transparent true peak limiter / loudness maximizer with look-ahead.
  • Simple but effective controls to fluently adjust the sound.
  • 4x Inter-Sample Peak (ISP) detection, with the same efficiency as 4x linear phase oversampling, but without any of the common downsides, such as additional sound artifacts or heavy CPU-load.
  • Compliant with the latest international recommendations for true peak detection, such as those described in ITU-R BS.1770-4.
  • 5ms latency (compensated).
  • Support for all sample rates between 8kHz - 384kHz.

Apart from L2, this is the best mastercomp I've used. It balances the mix with clarity when stressed.

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.

This is great loudness maximizer. I find this to be very transparent. I was very shocked and surprised at how well this plugin sounds..... I highly recommend giving it a try. It's a keeper for me !!!
