    OK, I already posted this in the sticky thread. BUT THIS IS SO BIG THE WHOLE WORLD HAS TO KNOW ABOUT IT!!!!

    And it's FREEWARE!!!!


    I quote the developer for the instructions:

    Left click in big box and drag left/right to set gain from 0db - 16db
    Right click in big box and drag left/right to set freely -96db - 16db

    Same can be done in the Gain box.

    Left click in Output box and drag left/right to set
    the output ceiling (-60 - 0db )

    Right click in output box to reset (0db)

    DULL/SHARP left click and drag left/right to set
    peak shape. Too sharp produces clicks and pops...

    Left klick in Algorithm Box to toggle FULL/SMOOTH algo.

    Left click EQ to open/close EQ section..
    Right click to turn off/on Body/EQ.

    Left click and drag left/right on body,bass,mid,hi

    right click on sliders to reset.

    Left click and drag left/right in Freq boxes to
    set freq:

    Bass = 80-500hz (breakpoint)
    Mid = 500-3000hz (center pos)
    hi = 3000-20000hz (hi end enhancer)

    Body will beef the input signal
    Bass will beef the low end.
    Mid will raise the gain of mid range.
    Hi will enhance hi end.

    Experiment! (I do....)

    I'm no expert on maximizers/limiters but this one sounds very good. No pumping and pretty transparent. If anyone has any experience with L1 or L2, their comments would be appreciated. Also, Does the developer have other plug ins or a web site? Thanks.

    Would this compressor be a noticeable drop in quality from a $100 outboard compressor in a home recordist DAW setting for vocals and acoustic guitar? I imagine that I'd never notice the difference.........correct?

    This is a VST plug, designed for use with Steinberg products such as Cubase or Nuendo. It can also be used in DirectX based software such as Cakewalk Sonar with the use of a VST to DirectX wrapper.
