    Maximize!

    by J. Allen . 5 out of 5 stars

    I love the maximizer, I don't think you understand, I seriously dig this plug-in. Its great for adding warmth and volume to your output channel especially if you 'work in the box' The one band option is great for beefing up lowend whilst the three band option adds clarity and sheen to the mids and top end.
    In short you need this plug-in in your life, don't delay go get it!

    This was the missing link in the mastering suite. Doesn't take up too much VALUABLE resources on my solo flexi. Even though I have the mastering suite, I still could not attain the volumes for things I want to crush. I have other mastering tools but the UAD2 Mastering bundle should really include the maximizer. I have th Ampex Tape machine as well. Once I had it all tuned in I was amazed at the crystal clear yet under the sidewalk low-end I'm sold .

    Man I want to buy more UAD but the solo-flexi is just not able to run many instances of UAD especially if the mastering suite is used. I have to go with my other plug-ins that are great in their own right but do not compare with UAD2. I know go get the apollo but I'll wait until 64-bit is ou

    my question was, maximizer vs. limiter for in-the-box mixdowns?

    my test was on two trax of differing electronic stuff, one dubtech with loads of sub and one electro with alot less! Going into this i assumed the maximizer was gonna rock my boat for this stuff, but i was suprised....

    On the first track the limiter fared better by up to 6db of loudness before distortion occurred on the bass - the maximizer just couldnt handle the bass like the limiter could. Actual and percieved loudness was 'more' for the limiter. The limiter does seem to have a slower release in 'auto' than the maximizer's onboard limit function but otherwise is colourless to a higher input gain than the maximizer.

    The second track fared slightly better on first listen with the maximizer - it sounded more 'crisp' than with the limiter, and i could push it more. BUT on closer listen some of the harmonics on the breakdown (not just the 'loud' sections) were distorting - when i dropped the input gain to eliminate this, again the limiter outperformed maximizer in terms of loudness, this time by around 3db.

    So, I'm getting the limiter. Its even got Katz meters (as opposed to the maximizer which doesnt really show you output all that well) its more transparent and is just as 'loud' as the maximizer, if not louder. With tools like the LA2A and Pultec etc, you can do your colouration in mix and not on the bounce. Still, either one is better than anything Waves do - no harsh artifacts with UAD!

    A little disappointed

    by D. McVey . 3 out of 5 stars

    Loved everything I own from UAD until now. I regret having bought this plug. I don't think it brought anything to my mixes that I didn't already have. Sorry.

    Though it pains me to say this, for the first ime in my UAD experience, I found this plug to be pretty lame. If you own a Waves L1, L2 or L3/L3 multi, you do not need this plug. As a matter of fact, of all the maximizer type plugs I have, this is the worst and the most expensive for a single plug. I have nearly every UAD plug available love them all and use them all religiously. But this is one I don't see me ever using because it just sounds bad, clips easily and just doesn't do my projects any justice no matter what setting I use. When it comes to maximizer plugs, I'm spoiled by Waves.

    Fantastic Tool. A keeper from the first time I applied it.

    by J. Ackerman . 5 out of 5 stars

    When I moved over to Pro Tools 11, I no longer had access to some of the mastering limiters I was using in 10, so I tried this guy out to see if it would do the job and bring everything together for me in a way that sounded musical and powerful . . . . It's just glorious.

    I've used this in the last few days on a totally brutal thrash metal band and also for a bluegrass acoustic song (or three) and it dazzled in each case.

    The only problem that I have with any of the UAD plug-ins I have purchased is that I would be totally lost and heartbroken if I didn't have access to them anymore. If there's better software out there, I have never heard of it.

    Precision Maximizer

    by G. Leonard . 5 out of 5 stars

    The Precision Maximizer is a fantastic plug-in and has become my go-to for both mastering and mixing applications. Like all UAD plugs, the sonic character is superb. While versatile, it is also intuitive to use and smoother and warmer sounding in side by side comparisons with similar products. A valuable and worthy addition to my growing arsenal of UAD plug-ins.

    Perfect live tool (and studio 2)

    by J. Winkel . 5 out of 5 stars

    I use the Maximizer in combination with Precision Multiband Plug-In and the Ampex® ATR-102 Mastering Tape Recorder Plug-In on the Apollo Twin Dual in the live set up. In this way my output is ready 2 go!! A soundcheck is only a matter of gain in the FOH console.

    In the studio I use the Maximizer also on individual instruments.

    TIP: don't over do it and the result is perfect!

    It seems too easy...

    by J. Torrence . 5 out of 5 stars

    I tried this demo when it first came out and thought it was mediocre. In hindsight, I was pushing it way too hard, because on second listen, it's pretty fantastic. For the program material I was using, I found that I needed to keep the Mix level around 60%. Good stuff; just adds that "something."

    a useful quick facility

    by R. Rosso . 5 out of 5 stars

    very useful to maximize the RMS/UFS of the final mix especially for folk music. Very transparent effect. SImple application for a good ear.

    Loud, smooth, round and punchy!

    by P. Lira . 5 out of 5 stars

    This plugin is awesome! it will enhance the harmonics of your mix and definitely bring it to the next level by a lot! If you can crank it or keep it discrete, it will make your whole mix sound better.
