Maximal 2 is an advanced loudness maximiser that allows you to get the most out of your sound.

Features

Advanced Detection

Maximal 2 features an advanced lookahead detection algorithm. Instead of just delaying the signal like some of the others do, it uses a special algorithm to react to the incoming audio naturally before it happens.

The intelligent release uses a multi-stage envelope for smoothly controlling the limiting. This, along with the advanced lookahead, helps you escape the dreaded 'pumping' you can get with other limiters.

Juicy Analogue Warmth

Not only can you get crystal-clear limiting using Maximal 2, but there are some goodies for injecting some warmth into your track - The 'Tape' mode adds some warm saturation, modelled on the old tape-machines of the past, without the unwanted artefacts such as drift, wow or flutter.

The 'Tube' mode is slightly more boisterous, adding a bit of grit, while the 'Loud' mode takes the transparent limiter and adds in a variable state soft-clipper before the limiter, letting you squeeze a few extra dB out, while still keeping the sound clean.

8x Oversampling

To help limit aliasing, and stop inter-sample peaks, Maximal 2 offers up to 8x oversampling. The oversampling algorithm cleanly upsamples the signal before applying the limiting, before cleanly bringing the sample rate back to the original.

In Detail

Maximal is a loudness maximiser, featuring an advanced lookahead peak limiter and analogue modelled saturation. The multi-stage limiter section features next-level lookahead, automatic makeup gain, and adaptive and responsive release. This plugin will smoothly limit any peaks in the audio, and automatically increase the overall level. The analogue modelled tape and tube saturation modes encompass all the best parts of the analogue world, without all the bad parts - such as high-frequency roll-off, hiss, wow and flutter.

Using adaptive release technology, you can simply tell Maximal 2 whether you want the limiter to be fast and loud, or slow and transparent, and it will do what's needed inside. You can use Maximal 2 to catch rampant peaks in an audio recording, or you can use it to make your track phat and loud - it's up to you how you push it.
