The Waves MaxxBCL Digital Stereo Maximizer pumps up your bass with psycho-acoustic technology for a gigantic low end that doesn't tax your system.
MaxxBass® is an exclusive Waves process that delivers rich, deep bass from virtually any speaker. Using the psycho-acoustic phenomenon of the missing fundamental, MaxxBass combines precise harmonics to extend perceived bass by up to 1.5 octaves, while protecting speakers and amplifiers from overload.
Warm up your sound with the classic compression used on countless hit records and major motion pictures. The Renaissance Compressor is the ultimate dynamics processor, delivering studio-style warmth with vintage Opto or modern Electro modes. Featuring Waves Automatic Release Control™, RenComp produces increased RMS level with unmatched clarity. It's like a leveler and a fast compressor in one.
Crank up your volume with plenty of headroom to spare, for that in-your-face signal that rocks the house. The L2 is one of the most widely heard digital effects on hit records today. Increase your average signal level without artifacts or distortion. Simply set the threshold and define the peak level. The L2 does the rest.
