Venomode has released Maximal, a maximising peak limiter effect plugin for Windows and Mac.

Maximal is a lookahead peak limiter, with auto-make up gain, and adaptive release. This plugin will smoothly limit any peaks in the audio, and automatically increase the gain. Using our adaptive release technology, you can simply tell Maximal whether you want it to be fast or smooth, and it will do what’s needed inside.

You can use Maximal to catch rampant peaks in an audio recording, or you can use it to make your track loud – it’s up to you how you push it.

Maximal features

  • Transparent Limiting — Make the most out of your sound – from fast peak catching, to making tracks loud, do it with Maximal.
  • Built-in Exciter — Add more sonic depth with the built-in exciter. Warm up the bass, or crisp up the highs.
  • Intelligent Release — Maximal features an automatic, intelligent release. Simply change the character parameter, and let Maximal do the rest.
  • Cross Platform — Both Mac OSX and Windows are supported, with VST & AU formats. You can even share your presets between different operation systems.

Maximal (VST/AU) costs £39 GBP.
