FAC Maxima Adds Waveform Viewer
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , ,

Fac Maxima is an extremely useful audio utility effect. I use it in almost all of my projects. FAC 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. It’s 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, FAC Maxima makes a complicated task easy.

What’s New:
• New waveform viewer: optional scales, mirroring, threshold line feedback, VU Meter Peak/Rms and general widget optimisation.
• Automatic setting of the startup view (small vs large). Can be changed if the host supports the view configuration management.

In addition to the classic final stage application, FAC 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.

• Get the final touch!
FAC Maxima definitely makes audio louder and that makes it an effective tool in many mastering engineers’ arsenals.

• Be creative!
Emphasis subtitle details, sometimes floor contains treasure, you will have a completely new listen to your old tracks! The audio background may indeed contain noise, but sometimes also “pearls” that may be revealed.

• Go further!
Tired by the advertisement boost, or important speech level variation in broadcasting? Use FAC Maxima to maintain the level constant. DJ’s may also benefit from the effects to normalise in real time the level of the mixed tracks.

As with all FAC products the interface has a unique sober look and provides a great user experience. FAC 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.
