Maxim redefines the limiting process by using an advanced, proprietary technique that distinguishes it from analog limiter designs and digital versions of them.
Rather than clipping peaks, Maxim takes advantage of the Pro Tools non-linear production environment to intelligently process the signal.It looks ahead to anticipate peaks in the audio file and then reduces peaks, relative to the track's lower level audio, without changing the overall sound quality. The result is transparent, or perfect, peak limiting that preserves the sonic characteristics of the audio in a way that's not possible with analog limiters.
In addition, Maxim automatically adjusts the overall gain of the audio to meet the ceiling as limiting is applied. In other words, Maxim combines advanced peak limiting (without clipping!) and normalization in a single plug-in, making it easier and more efficient than ever to achieve optimum audio levels.
While ideally suited to the stereo master of a mix, Maxim is flexible enough to be used as a dynamics processor on any channel in the Pro Tools mixing environment. It also offers built-in 16-, 18-, or 20-bit dithering, online help, and a full-color histogram, making it an indispensable plug-in for mixing and mastering in any Pro Tools environment.
