I love this limiter - I blind-tested it against Toneboosters Barricade and Kjaerhaus Clasic Limiter and this was the most transparent, most open and most musical limiter. Limiter No 6 is too complex to use effectively, and others I tried had too much clipping. Maxwell Smart has no clipping, it just rounds off the transients whilst letting everything else through untouched.

No flashy UI, no VU meters, no waveforms, nothing... it has to be the most boring plugin ever... except that it just works, even when I leave the two controls at their defaults (which I do). Love it, highly recommended.

Thank you so much! Maxwell Smart has been recently updated to v2, which hopefully reduces the boringness :). More details above.

Cool! Looking forward to trying this later. Thanks.

...but no 64-Bit Plugin support! :(.

Support for 64-bit on Windows and OS X are definately on our roadmap. :)

It works well, if you'll first use TLs Maximizer (The old free one), and after that Maxwell Smart with ceiling for your final master output.
