    Maximize!

    by J. Allen . 5 out of 5 stars

    I love the maximizer, I don't think you understand, I seriously dig this plug-in. Its great for adding warmth and volume to your output channel especially if you 'work in the box' The one band option is great for beefing up lowend whilst the three band option adds clarity and sheen to the mids and top end.
    In short you need this plug-in in your life, don't delay go get it!

    This was the missing link in the mastering suite. Doesn't take up too much VALUABLE resources on my solo flexi. Even though I have the mastering suite, I still could not attain the volumes for things I want to crush. I have other mastering tools but the UAD2 Mastering bundle should really include the maximizer. I have th Ampex Tape machine as well. Once I had it all tuned in I was amazed at the crystal clear yet under the sidewalk low-end I'm sold .

    Man I want to buy more UAD but the solo-flexi is just not able to run many instances of UAD especially if the mastering suite is used. I have to go with my other plug-ins that are great in their own right but do not compare with UAD2. I know go get the apollo but I'll wait until 64-bit is ou

    my question was, maximizer vs. limiter for in-the-box mixdowns?

    my test was on two trax of differing electronic stuff, one dubtech with loads of sub and one electro with alot less! Going into this i assumed the maximizer was gonna rock my boat for this stuff, but i was suprised....

    On the first track the limiter fared better by up to 6db of loudness before distortion occurred on the bass - the maximizer just couldnt handle the bass like the limiter could. Actual and percieved loudness was 'more' for the limiter. The limiter does seem to have a slower release in 'auto' than the maximizer's onboard limit function but otherwise is colourless to a higher input gain than the maximizer.

    The second track fared slightly better on first listen with the maximizer - it sounded more 'crisp' than with the limiter, and i could push it more. BUT on closer listen some of the harmonics on the breakdown (not just the 'loud' sections) were distorting - when i dropped the input gain to eliminate this, again the limiter outperformed maximizer in terms of loudness, this time by around 3db.

    So, I'm getting the limiter. Its even got Katz meters (as opposed to the maximizer which doesnt really show you output all that well) its more transparent and is just as 'loud' as the maximizer, if not louder. With tools like the LA2A and Pultec etc, you can do your colouration in mix and not on the bounce. Still, either one is better than anything Waves do - no harsh artifacts with UAD!

    A little disappointed

    by D. Mcvey . 3 out of 5 stars

    Loved everything I own from UAD until now. I regret having bought this plug. I don't think it brought anything to my mixes that I didn't already have. Sorry.

    Though it pains me to say this, for the first ime in my UAD experience, I found this plug to be pretty lame. If you own a Waves L1, L2 or L3/L3 multi, you do not need this plug. As a matter of fact, of all the maximizer type plugs I have, this is the worst and the most expensive for a single plug. I have nearly every UAD plug available love them all and use them all religiously. But this is one I don't see me ever using because it just sounds bad, clips easily and just doesn't do my projects any justice no matter what setting I use. When it comes to maximizer plugs, I'm spoiled by Waves.

    grainy, distorted

    by D. Charles . 1 out of 5 stars

    Use can use up to a point then it distorts. This does not make your mix any better. Wouldn't recommend.

    It seems too easy...

    by J. Torrence . 5 out of 5 stars

    I tried this demo when it first came out and thought it was mediocre. In hindsight, I was pushing it way too hard, because on second listen, it's pretty fantastic. For the program material I was using, I found that I needed to keep the Mix level around 60%. Good stuff; just adds that "something."

    INCREIBLE!!!

    by M. G.. 5 out of 5 stars

    Increíble plugin!!! Es realmente lo que cuenta la publicidad. El limitados muy bueno. Normalmente lo uso con la opción 3 bandas y sube la señal que es un alucine y siempre con la ventaja del uso DSP UAD, que deja la cpu del ordenador libre para otras acciones. RECOMENDADO!

    Una Máquina!

    by A. Jarrin De La Torre. 5 out of 5 stars

    Antes utilizaba el maximizador de BBE el Loudnes Maximizer, pero siempre encontraba que los masters perdían totalmente la dinámica, las baterías aplastadas etc etc especialmente cuando quería lograr mayor nivel en el master. con el Precisión Maximizer la diferencia es brutal, el sonido es limpio y puedo llegar a un m¡nivel superior antes de aplastar todo!. un plug-in altamente recomendado.

    Found it

    by R. Matias. 5 out of 5 stars

    I've been looking for perfect brickwall limiter more than a decade, unit which wont go mushy but can push signal to extremes, and here it is. Finally my mixes sound BIG. Thank you UAD!

    Definitely has uses but...

    by J. Kitcher. 4 out of 5 stars

    ... I'm not sure if this is suitable for mastering dance music (although I've not tried it on any acoustic / instrument-based material). It's certainly effective in the mix process, fantastic for beefing up a bass or synth layer.

    Great Choice!

    by R. Lucchese. 5 out of 5 stars

    I've been mastering in the box for years, especially when the project doesn't have enough budget for hiring
    a mastering studio. I can tell you guys this plugin is an essencial tool for mastering a project in the box and
    achieve an absolutely professional sound. But you have to know how to use it, because it is not a magic wand
    to fix bad mixes. I like the subtle properties maximizer brings to the final master, just like some cream in to
    the top of the cake. When you want to maintain the peak level control or if you feel like something is missing in the sound,
    you've come to the right place. It provide harmonic correction, brings back that lost frequency and energy,
    without losing the original dynamic. The final touch before limiting !!
