Maximus will quickly become one of the most rewarding tools in your recording and mixing arsenal. Maximus applies level maximization via compression and/or limiting across three frequency bands to enhance and improve the final track. Used sparingly Maximus raises the volume of the track without introducing unwanted distortion and ensures that the quieter parts often lost in the mix are more easily heard. Maximus will deliver transparent peak limiting and volume maximization without coloration of the processed sound. However Maximus is much more than a pristine quality Mastering Maximizer it's also a Compressor Limiter Noise Gate Expander Ducker and De-esser. Maximus excels equally well as a final mastering plugin or as a per-track effect. Lock and load. Maximus offers 4 user definable compression curves and complete visual analysis of the sound as it is processed. Bass can be increased and higher frequencies sharpened. Selected elements of a mix instruments or vocals for example or complete tracks are given a professionally mastered 'presence'.
Features 3 independent user-definable Low Mid High (LMH) frequency bands 4 compressors/limiter: One per LMH band plus a Master wide band compressor/limiter 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 Custom look-ahead for the LMH bands and Master compression envelopes. Each compressor has an infinitely variable multipoint compression curve. Create any shaped knee or special effects (limiting compression gating or expansion) Mixing between the frequency dependent compressors and the master perfect for parallel & NY-style compression 4 Independent stereo separation control per band
