LoudMax 1.40 - Now Supports VST3 and Larger GUI


Just a heads up to the GearSPACE community!

Thomas Mundt's excellent LoudMax limiter plugin is now available in version 1.40. He added a lot of great new features with this one included the much anticipated (for me, anyway) VST3, a larger GUI (click in the lower right corner) and as always algorithm improvements.

The Mac OS X plugins are "Universal 2 Binaries" with support for Intel Mac and ARM64 based Silicon.

LoudMax is freeware, but a donation is kindly accepted! You can find the contribution link and downloads at https://loudmax.blogspot.com . LoudMax is as good if not better than many commercial limiters on the market and can be used for track compression duties as well.

Really is one of the most transparent, track limiters around.

Almost a month old now... (16.9)

VST3 crashed my DAW (on earlier versions of LM), I'll try again.

Larger gui is kinda work-around... a choice between regular GUI (win xp era size) and a "scaled up" (and blurry, may I add) face plate. he should aim for vector rendering (if it's possible for him). and and of course - leave the interface EXACTLY as it is (controllers wise).

As for "as always - algorithm improvements" : that part keeps amazing me. with every few iterations it seems like one can "poke" into the GR more and more (and more) without noticeable sound degradation. it may be a "one trick pony" (slow limiter, lack of processing flexibility etc.) but it is a hell of a pony and one hell of a trick !

Yeah lives for many years now in my projects. In fact it is the only limiter I use. Despite having Softube, PA and IK stuff

It is set and go, no overcomplicated settings, much like the stuff from airwindows.

It just works.

Thumbs up

Been using the LoudMax on 99% of all the channels as last plugin, since 10 year back (uses almost no CPU). Mostly as a safety guard, but also some times to (drum roll) boost the loudness or for the coloring together with what else is on the channel. Think I still use the oldest version and I love it.
