Arboreal Audio have launched a new loudness maximizer and multiband enhancer plugin for PC and Mac users. It’s available at an intro price until December 31st.
PiMax is your new go-to enhancement plugin for any type of track, buss, or the final mix. Use it as your main saturator for any sound source, or as a final soft clipper to add density, warmth, or impact. Slice your sound source into a maximum of four frequency bands for full control. Each band comes with input and output gains, as well as a width control. Bands can be soloed, muted, or bypass the saturation — perfect for granular control over a final mix or track group.
PiMax comes equipped with several saturation settings: symmetric saturation for even-order harmonics, asymmetric for even- and odd-order harmonics, and further modifiers for customizing the response of the saturation.
Finite creates gentle foldback distortion as it’s driven, leading to unique warping of the loudest signals, and incredibly transparent saturation at lower levels.
Infinite takes the foldback distortion even further, allowing the signal to pass through zero, creating high-pitched resonances for creative sound shaping.
Clip works like a traditional soft clipper, driving everything towards the ceiling and letting nothing past. This mode can help retain the energy of strong transients that would otherwise be absorbed in the other two modes.
PiMax also features control over program-dependent saturation modes. Negative (blue) values will introduce downward expansion to the quieter parts of the signal, perfect for exaggerating transients and adding impact. At extreme settings, this can introduce interesting artifacts — if you’re looking to really mangle your sound. Positive (green) values will introduce more amplification and compression, ideal for a sound source in need of fattening.
