Excellent tool, does not change the characteristics of the music. It did not sink the track on the low frequencies. Grade 10!

I cant get it to work, i downloaded it and it seems fine-but its just a .dll and a readme.txt and my computer wont let it extract to my vst folders. I have 4 vst paths (because ive tried a few DAWs lately) and none of them are working. Ive tried extracting to a folder of the same name, the old folder, opening in reaper, everything. Any advice?

I'm using a Mac 10.13.6 and cannot find where to put the plugin. I unpacked it and put it in: Library, Audio, Plugins, Components with no success. I then put it in several other areas with no success. Where does it go? How do we get it to work on a Mac? It looks like a nice tool. It would be nice to have a simple install for it.

He guys there is no installer, it is only a lego block ( LoudMax.component )...I don't known what to do... Please can somebody help me, I'm a MAC user...Thanks!

Just put the component in one of these folders: On main drive: root/Library/Audio/Plug-ins/Components OR Home/Library/Audio/Plug-ins/Components... Look around in the Plug-ins folders to see where all your other plugins wound up. One is in your home folder only for your account and the other is in the Library folder at the root level for ANY account on the computer. It may ask for your password to put things in the root level folder. That's normal. Good Luck.

Any chance to get a Linux VST version ? Looks very promising, but bitwig studio does not support LADSP plugins in Linux... Thanks for your effort.

works well with my audio processor and the CZE-T251 for fighting loudness wars.

Since V1.26 launched like a week or two ago it became my go-to limiter for everything, it's incredible how much the sound improved with just one update.

Perfect, for a quick mastering to raise the volume in a transparent way.

After a few mastering tests against other free limiters like Limiter No. 6 and Unlimited, Loudmax became my favorite one because how transparent it is, even to the level of expensive commercial limiters. So, it makes me think this limiter is really underrated because of its appereance and simple GUI.

Good stuff, easy and straight forward. Xhip Limiter is a good alternative, it has more control features.

My go to limiter. Quick and easy. I prefer tools designed to do one thing, and do it well. There are way too many hyped up, one tries to do all tools begging for attention, when the end game is improving the mix.
