Maximus: Heavy weaponry for the loudness war.
Maximus is much more than a pristine quality Mastering Maximizer, it's also a Limiter, Compressor, Noise Gate, Expander, Ducker and De-esser. Maximus excels equally well as a final mastering plugin or as a per-track effect.
3 independent user-definable Low Mid High (LMH) frequency bands.
Custom look-ahead for the LMH bands and Master compression envelopes.
4 compressors/limiter: One per LMH band plus a Master wide band compressor/limiter.
Each compressor has an infinitely variable, multipoint compression curve. Create any shaped knee or special effects (limiting, compression, gating or expansion)
Fully configurable. Any of the LMH or Master compressors can be bypassed to configure Maximus to suit any compression task
Two saturation types per LMH & Master bands, with independent gain
Mixing between the frequency dependent compressors and the master, perfect for parallel & NY-style compression
4 Independent stereo separation control per band
price: 119 dollar
