Fred Anton Corvest (FAC) has designed a brand new AuV3 fx - Maxima is an audio effect designed to provide automatic gain control of your audio materials to ensure that the levels stay consistent and never exceed 0dB. This is what FAC has to say about it...
Maxima is a clever combination of dynamic processors that can be set to provide a gentle transparent signal boost respecting the initial dynamic or significant colorised level maximisation. Thanks to a unique signal path,algorithms and a small set of parameters, Maxima makes a complicated task easy.
In addition to the classic final stage application, Maxima excels on individual tracks too. With a few changes it's easy to go from the common gain deviation compensation, e.g. for vocals, to drastical audio changes that will bring your audio material to new territories: boost reverb tails, flattenize drums... The applications are various and the possibilities are limitless.
As with all FAC products the interface has a unique sober look and provides a great user experience.Maxima also brings a real-time multi-waveform graph having a 6s buffer of the audio material before and after operations, this will help on setting the right parameters and have a visual feedback.
