Forget any other maximiser.
With most maximisers, the more you push it the more tinny your sound will become, but not with this one, it maintains dynamics and transients, and gives a real analogue solidness that can't be achieved elsewhere! Its a vital tool for stem mastering and mastering. If you want a professional, loud and solid mix, get this beauty!
From subtle to very aggressive
It is incredible the naturalness and the improvement that is noticed in the subjects and in the subgroups with this plugin. You can carry a mix up to -5 RMS without any effort and with an impressive sound. Since I have it I've removed other very famous limiters and maximizers from my list. Really delighted with this purchase.

EL ARMA SECRETA
Ganar RMS sin destrozar una pizca la señal, no he visto ningún maximizador que trabaje como éste. Es una piedra angular de mi cadena. EXTREMELY USEFULL
Great FINALIZATION !!!
For myself, I recognized only this maximizer and Sonnox Inflator. Excellent plug-in for finalization - I recommend !!!
A great choice for subtle enhancement or aggressive distortion. Now finding a place in all of my sessions.
I haven't had enough time to really experiment with the different configurations, but it definitely helps bring out bass...especially on smaller speakers.
It kills the mixes... But sometimes for the better)
A little disappointed...
The Precision Maximizer doesn't fulfill my expectations. I tried to maximize several songs but had much more success with the Teletronix compressor and the Adaptive Limiter of Logic Pro X. Saturation, on the other hand, seems to be not so bad.
great for mastering, but it won't fix your mix. You need to get your mix spot on first, then this adds that finished polish.
This is one of those plug ins you shouldn't really keep as priority. I find that there are other maximizers that work better. I prefer the oxford inflator. The precision limiter is a better tool than the maximizer
A War Machine
Simple to use and powerful, a war machine.
Simple tool for A/B comparison of mixes...
It's what you expect of a maximizer... it makes your scratch mixes louder to compare versions. But the Band function lets you apply effects to three bands, so one band doesn't drown out the others. Seems to keep me out of the mud.

I bought it for the purpose of raising the level in the mastering stage. It is simple and impressive. However, excessive leveling is not allowed. The comp side is not softer than I thought.
Get on the loudness bus!
After always struggling to get my mastering to live up to the loudness in tracks I was referencing, consider the problem solved. Now I can add slight musicality and more than slight volume without too much color and no grainy forced-gain break up. Even demos now sound Iike the final product.
I always enjoy UAD self built plugins, simple and straight to the point.. This plugin is no different I love it, you can't mess up with this maximizer.. Don't believe me place it on your stuff, rather you mixing/mastering the sound will blow you away.
Always use this plug-in mastering and very happy, because the sound becomes more saturated and bright
le da mas claridad y realce a la mezcla con unos pocos movimientos
Glad I Purchased This Plug-in
For me I had to choose between this plug-in and the UAD Precision Limiter. I understand that they both have their different strengths and characteristics, but I could only choose one for now. So I went with the Precision Maximizer and couldn't be happier. It maximizes and has a limiter function as well. I do plan to add the Precision Limiter eventually, but for now I am happy with my purchase. It helped to read the UAD-Plug-Ins Manual to get some pointers on how to use this maximizer.
This Maximizer adds nice harmonics to your master project. I like it as a brick wall limiter as well. Doesn't allow much movement but I make Drum & Bass and I like volume and movement is in my mix. Stands strong!
Plugin is the bread and butter of my mastering chain. Like my knock it out of the park plug. What's it's job? Just smack it out of the park :D. Sometimes I don't even limit after depending on how happy I am with my mix. Sometimes I put Precision Limiter after to cut some peaks. Either way, I like pushing this over the limiter. Shape, Mix and go!
Thank you Universal Audio
