Fred Anton Corvest has made a name this year among the iOS developers with his excellent app FAC Chorus. The year ends so slowly and he has something new in the Apple App Store.
Maxima is a new iOS app that provide automatic gain control of any audio material. It’s a super smart utility and effect processor that ensure that the levels stay consistent and never exceed 0dB. It’s a clever combination of a dynamic processors that can be set to provide a gentle transparent signal boost respecting the initial dynamic or significant colorised level maximisation. Thanks to a unique signal path, algorithms and a small set of parameters, Maxima makes a complicated task easy.
In addition to the classic final stage application, Maxima excels on individual tracks too. With a few changes it’s easy to go from the common gain deviation compensation, e.g. for vocals, to drastically audio changes that will bring your audio material to new territories: boost reverb tails, flattenize drums… The applications are various and the possibilities are limitless.
As with all FAC products the interface has a unique sober look and provides a great user experience. Maxima also brings a real-time multi-waveform graph having a 6s buffer of the audio material before and after operations, this will help on setting the right parameters and have a visual feedback.
