Sonalksis MaxLimit - Electronic Delivery – No Longer Available

Program maximizing limiter to push your material a little further,without destroying the dynamics
MFR# 106

Product Description

The Sonalksis MaxLimit is a program maximizing limiter for when you need to push your material a little further, but without destroying the dynamics. A unique 'smoothing' feature allows you to balance transparency with maximization.

Brick-wall limiting is a ubiquitous process in the age of digital audio. Initially developed purely for practical purposes to prevent digital overload. It has in recent years been widely used for volume maximizing purposes, to give the audio greater impact during the final mastering phase. This power maximization process can however destroy the mix dynamic, creating a fatiguing sound.

This unique 'smoothing' feature in MaxLimit gives you the ability to define the density of maximization, which gives the processor greater subtlety and flexibility than typical digital limiters. Using this feature, you can maximize the power of your mixes, while maintaining the dynamic 'punch'.

Brick-wall limiting is a ubiquitous process in the age of digital audio. Initially developed purely for practical purposes to prevent digital overload.

This unique 'smoothing' feature in MaxLimit gives you the ability to define the density of maximization, which gives the processor greater subtlety and flexibility than typical digital limiters. Using this feature, you can maximize the power of your mixes, while maintaining the dynamic 'punch'.

Most limiters intended for brick-wall limiting are designed either with transparency or with power maximization in mind, as it is naturally difficult to achieve both at the same time. MaxLimit however introduces a unique 'smoothing' feature to allow direct control over the balance between transparency and maximization. This enables subtle regulation of the 'pressure' that the limiter exerts on the audio.

Although MaxLimit is primarily intended for mastering purposes, it can be used for a much broader range of applications. The 'smoothing' feature, coupled with the inclusion of an analogue modeled 'Clip' option, makes it conceivably very useful for general tracking situations too, not just to tame the extremities of highly dynamic audio, but also to add character to a track.

Specifications:
  • Simple and direct interface
  • Unique 'Smooth' parameter balances transparency and volume maximization
  • True analogue 'Clip' option for more creative use
  • Automatic Release option allows for program dependent release times
  • Mono version included for general tracking use
  • Display and Control preferences
  • Up to 192 kHz support
  • 64bit floating point precision internal processing throughout
  • Ultra efficient processing, with specific optimizations for all native processors

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
