Waves L3 Multimaximizer Multiband Peak Limiter Plug-In
When top mastering engineers sit down behind the board, they need to enhance frequency response and maximize levels while protecting the fidelity of their sources. That's where the L3 comes in: The world's first auto-summing multi-band limiter for all-in-one mastering.
Waves L3 Multimaximizer Multiband Peak Limiter Plug-In Details
Waves L3 Multimaximizer is the world's first multi-band auto-summing limiter! With the L3 Peak Limiter, Waves has created an entirely new all-in-one final mastering tool for host-based and native software such as Digital Performer, Sound Forge, and all applications that support VST plug-ins. Like its predecessors, the acclaimed L1 and L2 limiters, the L3 is destined to become an indispensable tool for professional mixing and mastering by offering unprecedented control over multi-band peak limiting.
Intelligent Peak Limiting Mixer divides audio spectrum into five bands
The key to the L3's power is its patent-pending Peak Limiting Mixer (PLMixer) engine. The L3 differs from conventional wide band and multi-band limiters in several ways. Unlike wide-band limiters, the L3 first uses linear phase crossover filters to divide the audio spectrum into five bands. The PLMixer then uses psychoacoustic criteria to intelligently decide how much attenuation to apply to each band so that all available headroom is used. The result is that intermodulation is minimized and overall loudness is maximized, while brick-wall limiting is still maintained - all while retaining the simplicity of a single master threshold control.
Unlike traditional multi-band limiters, the PLMixer doesn't require a wide-band peak limiter to catch overshoots generated by individual band adjustments. Instead, the PLMixer automatically controls the gain relationship between the bands.
