Lively Audio Maxwell Smart

Lively Audio has released version 2.0 of Maxwell Smart, a transparent true peak limiter / loudness maximizer with look-ahead.

In addition to previous versions, the new one introduces built-in ISP (inter-sample peak) detection equivalent to 4x oversampling (without any of the artifacts or heavy CPU load). It’s been tested by using true peak meters that comply with the latest ITU, EBU and ATSC recommendations for true peak detection.

There are also 3 modes for controlling the sound (smooth, normal and loud), and the GUI has been updated to look like it wasn’t designed 20 years ago.
