Kuassa, Inc. has introduced Kratos Maximizer, a new mastering grade look-ahead brickwall limiter and loudness maximizer AU/VST plug-in. Kratos Maximizer on your master channel promises to summon that loud, commercial-quality release sound out of your mix without squashing or artifacts.

- 5 available parameters: Maximize, Texture, Release, Knee, and Ceiling
- Preset Management with 12 preset slots
- Mono and Stereo applicable
- Supports up to 96 kHz sample rate
