MultiMax : Multiband Audio Limiter

Do you know how broadcasters get that tight and loud on air sound?

FM Radio DJHave you ever noticed that the sound on the FM radio has more PUNCH than the original CD recording? That's because FM stations spend a lot of money on audio processors to get that competitive sound for maximum loudness. Stations use compressors and peak limiters to tailor the sound to get the most punch from small radio speakers or headphones. Some stations use audio processors to smooth out the levels of the music to make it easier to listen for a longer period of time.

"MultiMax" can be used to create a wide variety of processing that can make the music smoother or more punchy, depending on what you would like it to do. MultiMax can take your music WAV files and process them to get a gentle AGC action that will adjust the overall loudness of each file or you can get very aggressive, and make the file sound like it is coming from an over the air source and push it for maximum loudness and punch.

Engineers will recognize that MultiMax uses the same signal flow as some of the processors costing thousands of dollars. Using the power of your computers CPU, MultiMax delivers virtually the same performance level without the expensive firmware.
