I think that many of those who use external plug-ins (Vst, DXi) when creating their project, which uses a large number of them, have encountered the problem of processor loading.

Sometimes other types of devices are called maximizers, for example, psychoacoustic processing such as BBE Sonic Maximizer – we will not consider them here. We will get acquainted with the principles of operation of dynamic processing devices and compare with each other some popular models of software maximizers.

Volume and levels
