LoudMax is available as VST 2.4 Plugin for Windows and Mac OS X, Audio Unit Plugin for Mac OS X and as Winamp Plugin.

The Audio Unit version was built with Symbiosis from NuEdge Development.

The Winamp Plugin supports 5.1 Surround. Built-in stereo overdrive protection avoids distortions in a subsequent stereo downmix.

The Winamp Plugin has a simplified user interface. Only one slider for adjusting the maximum amplification. The maximum output level is 0dB.

The GUI was designed by LimeFlavour based on the idea and colorscheme of Sinkmusic.

LoudMax Plugin updated to v1.08

Release notes:
- Latency will be reported correctly to the host. There was a bug in the last version that could lead to a difference of one sample.
- Improved peak-hold algorithm. Higher precision at short bass peaks, like e.g. from a bass drum.
- Slightly longer release time at input material with a high loudness or/and a long sustain.

LoudMax 1.08 should sound more consistent and precise compared to previous versions.
