Thomas Mundt: LoudMax

A free brick-wall limiter.

By

9 November 2023

LoudMax is a Look-Ahead Brickwall Loudness Maximizer plugin with a clean transparent sound. It is designed to retain the original character of the music as much as possible even at high compression levels. The simple control layout consists of two faders, one for threshold and one for the output level; three metres to indicate input, output, and gain reduction in relation to the desired threshold. The Gain Reduction meter with peak hold marker is not available on legacy versions. There are also two buttons: ‘Link’, where the ‘Output’ fader can be coupled to the ‘Threshold’ fader; and ‘ISP’ which provides ‘Inter-Sample Peak’ detection for true peak limiting.

Features:
  • True Peak Limiting
  • Supports sample rates from 2kHz – 384kHz
  • Latency of 1.25ms (+ 6 samples with ISP)
  • Look-Ahead & Attack Time of 1.25ms
  • Automatic release time, depending on the input signal
  • No audible distortion
  • Possible overdrive of 740dB
  • Very low CPU usage
