Maximal 2 is an advanced loudness maximiser that allows you to get the most out of your sound.
Maximal 2 features an advanced lookahead detection algorithm. Instead of just delaying the signal like some of the others do, we use a special algorithm to react to the incoming audio naturally before it happens. Our intellegent 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.
