Very good and modern

The C-Suite C-Max Limiter is a very modern and nice Piece of software. Sounds from subtile to max. I'm using it more often in the last time.

Really worth to be owned

I was not satisfied with the loudness of the output and tried different plug ins. This one gave the best results and satisfied my wishes. Highly recommended!

I wish there was a way to turn off the Display. I think the display can be deceiving times. I want to be able to add gain by ear and not be deceived by the reduction display.

Simple usage and great !

I love the graphic to see essential peaks and transparent.
Take a lot of ressource of DSP usage for a limiter...

Sonically one of the best!

With only three knobs I thought it might lack some tweaking options, but it appears to cover most if not all your needs when using the presets. CEDER is the developer who has a long standing reputation of being one of the best! After using about fifteen top limiters I found it to sound great and can hang with any of them. The sound is fantastic and if you know what to listen for it will get you there. It’s a true gem!

Max Limiter with Nice Color

Hi guys,

I recently treated myself to the C Limiter.
The result shows great success.
The mix becomes incredibly stable and yet transparent.
Now a great alternative to mine for me
Breakwall limiters. Must have.

This is one to have.

This plug-in gives your mixes that extra polish that lets your mixes sit side by side with all the other commercial recordings . It does seem to have its own color be sure to check your levels before you master. A great tool to have at your fingertips.

Another Cedar/UAD winner

Great plugin! The three controls make it easy and fast to dial what you need with the typical Cedar quality.

Very Nice.

I don’t know what it is about this Limiter but it sounds gReat!
If you missed UAD’s Black Friday bundle of any 2 plugins for $99, all I can say is…nOooOooo!!
You could have gotten the C-Max Limiter and Sound City for $100!
Thanks UAD!

Outil simple et très performant

Ne pas oublier de le coupler à un vrai limiter car le CEILING ne va pas empêcher les peaks.
Quand on a compris c'est que du bonheur et beaucoup plus performant que l'assistant de mastering d'apple sur Logic. Attention de ne pas le pousser trop fort en dB sinon ce n'est pas naturel.

Nice but not included in the Ultimate 12

Why would UA keep this product out of the Ultimate 12. Ultimate 12 being a 4 items upgrade from 11 (not much added value and most people own one or two of that four already). I really love the products but not always understand the deals, upgrades and offers. Demoing this limiter made me consider buying it because it has some nice features but the offers confuse me.
