LoudMax is a brickwall loudness maximizer plug-in (or limiter), that will help you get that pumping, loud sound that goes with commercial releases.
Like any limiter, LoudMax is, essentially, a compressor designed to sit at the final stage (or near it) of your track, and make sure ugly, loud transients don’t make it to tape. Such a plugin is very useful when pushing up the overall volume of your track to match what you hear on the radio (or that new Metallica record).
LoudMax does the job well. It’s hella transparent and dead simple to use: Two sliders; one for threshold the other for output level.
PROS: A simple to use, transparent limiter
