Waves L3-16 Multimaximizer (education) Reviews


Waves L3-16

What an awesome product!

When I installed it, I didn\'t realise that you not only get the L3-16, but also the L3 4-band, the L3 Ultramaximiser, and low-latency versions of all 3 products thrown in for good measure, which I\'m sure will prove very useful.

The first thing I did was open up a mastering project for a recording I had worked on recently, in which I had used other industry-standard mastering software. I had a fiddle around with the L3-16, and it certainly did NOT yeild instant results. Althought the lay-out is actually pretty intuitive, it\'s an outstandingly complicated plug-in.

But once I got the hang of it (which drew on every ounce of my experience) I found myself capable of producing results I could only dream of before I had this at my fingertips. It basically allows you to brick-wall limit your mix, but keep the punch in the frequency bands most crucial to it.

It\'s not for the feint-hearted, and certainly not for the inexperienced. Those with less experience would be better off with something simpler, like the (also brilliant) L1 limiter. But for those up for the challenge, it\'s a plug-in with incredible power and scope.

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

Please fill in the following form to request a price match.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

If we are unable to verify the previous condition, we will notify you that we require additional information to verify the Price Match request. Our goal is to make this policy simple and hassle-free. We are committed to responding to your requests quickly.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.
