Kuassa has announced the release of Kratos 2 Maximizer, an updated version of the limiter/loudness maximizer effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.
The purpose of the original Kratos Maximizer VST / AU plugin was to make your mixes immediately LOUD.
In addition, the new Kratos 2 Maximizer also serves as a solid mix finalizer; aside from offering additional methods to manage your mixes’ dynamics with Adaptive Mode, you can now push further than before without fear: Crank the Maximize knob, tune the unique Texture knob to taste, tweak Attack and Release for tighter or loose response, then adjust the Knee for harder / smoother limiting action.
Throughout, the signature Kuassa no-nonsense design will guide your hands, eyes, and ears, giving you the freedom to create your maximum sound.
Kratos 2 Maximizer features
- Transparent, precision limiting / loudness maximizing.
- Unique Texture knob for smooth or harder character.
- Attack and Release parameter with the new adaptive option.
- 3 dithering options with 3 modes of bit depth to accommodate wide range of mastering needs.
- Up to 4x oversampling mode.
- CV Control Inputs.
- Compact user interface, straightforward workflow.
Kratos 2 Maximizer for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) is available for purchase for $69 USD. Owners of Kratos Maximizer V1 can upgrade for $15 USD via the Member Area. A free upgrade is available for those who purchased the plug-in in March 2015 and after.
The Rack Extension Version is available via the Propellerhead Shop.
