What is a loudness maximizer?

Should I use limiter or maximizer?

While a limiter simply knocks down or chops off the loudest peaks, a maximizer increases the loudness of a track and at the same time sets a ceiling for its peak level to prevent clipping. A limiter’s job is to set a ceiling while the maximizer pushes the music up to the ceiling.

Should you put a limiter on every track?

It probably isn’t necessary, but you can put a limiter on as many tracks as you like. Instruments like synths and distorted guitars may already have a very small dynamic range so in my experience, there’s really no point in limiting them.

Should I put a limiter on my master?

You don’t NEED to use a limiter on the master channel. Just drop your levels in the mix and ensure you have lots of headroom. When mastering the track (which is different from mixing altogether), then you can apply EQ, Compression (often Opto) and then a brickwall limiter to ensure nothing gets past 0db.

Who is happier Maximizer or satisficer?

Dr. Schwartz says he found nothing to suggest that either maximizers or satisficers make bad decisions more often. Satisficers also have high standards, but they are happier than maximizers, he says. Maximizers tend to be more depressed and to report a lower satisfaction with life, his research found.
