KVR Developer Challenge 2012Lively Audio updates free "Maxwell Smart" true peak limiter to v3.0

Lively Audio

Lively Audio has updated their free Maxwell Smart true peak limiter to v3.0.

Maxwell Smart is a transparent true peak limiter with look-ahead. It's designed to bring the audio to a desired level with minimum amount of audible distortion. Maxwell Smart has 4x ISP (inter-sample peak) detection to tame the 'invisible' peaks between regular sample peaks.

Features in v3.0:

  • Transparent true peak limiting / loudness maximizing with look-ahead.
  • Simple but effective controls to fluently adjust the sound.
  • 4x Inter-Sample Peak (ISP) detection, with the same efficiency as 4x linear phase oversampling, but without any of the common downsides, such as additional sound artifacts or heavy CPU-load.
  • Compliant with the latest international recommendations for true peak detection, such as those described in ITU-R BS.1770-4.
  • 5ms latency (compensated).
  • Support for all sample rates between 8kHz - 384kHz.
