Pump it up.Published on 06/25/12 at 15:53
Like all of the other Waves Plugins I have used, Maxx Volume is a very stable VST. Running in my Ableton Live 8 with a 2.7 Ghz Intel Core i7 processor and 4GBs of RAM it works like a charm. I've only been using this plugin for about three months, but I can say that it has seriously bolstered some of my sounds since then. This isn't a plugin I use all the time, mind you. It's something I find works well on the master track or on individual vocal tracks, but can easily be substituted by an EQ and a compressor with a different quality timbre.
Overall if you're going to use Waves Ltd Maxx Volume, watch your levels carefully and don't abuse the power entrusted to you. Its easy to clip and wash out a mix with this compressor so be conservative with its use. That said, I am glad I purchased it and would encourage you to do the same and enjoy another great plugin from Waves.

I run Waves Maxx Volume with a Mac Book Pro that has a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 4 GB of RAM. I use it with Pro Tools LE 7.4 and a Digi002R. I have never run it with anything else as I'm pretty sure you can't run it with any other software because it is a Digidesign plug-in that comes free with Pro Tools. I am able to run a bunch of these at once without any problems and I have never had a problem with it whatsoever - this plug-in with my configuration is completely stable.
I've been using this since I got Pro Tools, which was about three or fours years ago. The sound of this compressor is good and usable, but since I have other options like Smack and a URS compressor, I don't use it all that often. The sound quality is good but is definitely not spectacular. The meters and graphs are a big upside on this as they are quite helpful. The interface is easy to follow and even those with no previous use with a compressor should be able how to us this. I like it on drums and guitars and I probably wouldn't use it for anything else, as the tone isn't vibrant enough for my taste. It is easy to follow though and since the price is free with Pro Tools, you can't really complain about it at all and it is nice to have as an option.

First of all, this plugin is super rock solid. ...…
First of all, this plugin is super rock solid. I've never experienced a single hiccup or crash while using this. Considering that Waves is one of the best companies in this aspect, it's really no surprise. The plugin itself is cross platform compatible, so both Windows and OS X users alike can use this without any issues. The plugin itself also doesn't take up too much RAM, and in a world where processing power/RAM mean everything, that's a huge plus. There is one issue that I have with this, however. The plugin itself is a 32 bit plugin, but my DAW is a 64 bit DAW. That means that my DAW has to launch a special bridge application to allow me to use these plugins without having to lower my RAM limit. It's a minor inconvenience, but I'd still like to see Waves update these plugins in the future. I've been using the Mercury bundle for the past half a year or so, and it's bee a great experience.
Be sure not to overuse this, please. it's very easy to compress a mix so hard that there are no more dynamics in the overall mix. It does the job it's supposed to do, but I usually just reach for an EQ, compressor and my trusty adaptive limiter for the master buss. It just seems to work out better for me.
I'm currently running the Waves Ltd MaxxVolume on a Mac Book Pro that has a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 4 GB of RAM. I run the plug-in in Pro Tools LE 7.4 that runs with a Digi 002R audio interface or a Digidesign Micro Box depending on where I am. I can't say that I've had an issue running this plug-in at all within this configuration, but I should say that thus far I've only had a need to run one instance of this plug-in with a session at a time, so I don't know how well it would run beyond this...
Overall, the Waves Ltd MaxxVolume is a very powerful piece of software. It is great for getting the loudest volume possible from your mixes, building on the success of the L2 and L3 maximizers. This is certainly more versatile than its predecessors, as you have a lot more to work with here, and I'd also say that it sounds cleaner than them as well. The price for the native version of the plug-in isn't too expensive, but certainly isn't the cheapest plug-in out there. If you want the TDM version, as always it will cost considerably more. All in all, the Waves Ltd MaxxVolume is definitely worth trying out if you're looking for any sort of loudness maximizer!
