This is a great Maximizer

I have been using the Inflator for a long time but this maximizer seems to sound more transparent and brighter, in my opinion it works better with transients so you can push it a little bit further and have a louder master.

The tool you need for your masterbuss

This maximizer will give you a fuller track with the classic in front of face sound.
It needs a new GUI

Fiill and Forward

When I want a track to be a bit fuller and more forward in a mix, the Precision Maximizer achieves this without compromising its naturalness. I love this plug-in!

Praktisches Tool

Der Precision Maximizer verleiht dem Mix noch einen gewissen Punch und räumt klanglich noch etwas auf. Sehr praktisches Tool um dem finalen Mix noch das gewisse "Etwas" zu verleihen.

Precision Maximizer

The Precision Maximizer is an incredible tool for mixing and mastering. I’m very impressed with how it works on bringing up and out character in my mixes. UA has proven to be the best in plugins, far exceeding the competition with no latency issues… Thanks!

the one I prefer if I must use it

I don’t like to use tools like this too much. I makes me feel i didn’t do my job well. I never use it in a project on a certain instrument. Only when it comes to pre or stem mastering sometimes it comes in handy. I have one from waves, BX and Oxford but this is my go-to choice. It doesn’t ‘over do’ it’s job. No coloration etc.
