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.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

Jake D.
My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
Rob M.
Thanks for your great service and getting this out today. You guys really are the Kings!
