Maxwell Smart is a transparent true peak limiter / loudness maximizer with look-ahead. It's designed to boost the overall loudness while maintaining transients without audible distortion. Maxwell Smart also has 4x ISP (inter-sample peak) detection to tame the 'invisible' peaks between regular sample peaks.

Features:

  • Transparent true peak limiter / loudness maximizer 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.

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.

...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.
