LVC-Audio Clipped-MAX

Clipped-MAX is multifaced clipping tool designed for a wide range of mixing and mastering applications – from subtle to extreme. Clipped-Max includes 4 distinct clipping modules that can be rearranged to produce a variety of effects. Built into Clipped-MAX is minimal and linear phase oversampling that extends to 128x.

The modules for Clipped-MAX include SHIFTER, STEREO, M-BAND, and MASTER. The SHIFTER module is based on Clipped-MAX’s predecessor, ClipShifter. The clipping threshold can be dynamically altered based on the incoming signal. The STEREO module splits the incoming signal into mid and side channels, and each channel has separate clipping controls before being combined into left and right output signals.

The M-BAND module splits the signal into 2 to 6 different EQ bands for separate clipping. Each band’s clipping amount and clipping algorithm is separate and configurable. The MASTER module includes eleven different clipping algorithms, including an intersample peak option for monitoring and stopping intersample peaks.
