Loudmax 1.27 was released a few days ago, anyone that could tell me how much the ISP part improved?

I just tested 1.27 for you. Mac AU. With ISP engaged it now appears to mitigate ISPs and doesn't throw warnings with AppleRoundTrip. I pushed a mix to 8 LUFS and it only warned ISPs on a 128k stream, but only mildly. :phones:

Thanks, what about the sound in your opinion?

You decide... Here are two downloadable tracks. One is limited with DMG Limitless ($200) with a flat response, the other is LoudMax ($0). Both set to -12 LUFS. What do you think? :phones:

In general I like Limitless more, it has more impact, but it sounds more narrow and nasal for some reason.

Loudmax is pretty good for a free plug-in, but it shows high frequency distortion and aliasing when pushed.
