Waves MaxxBCL combines the MaxxBass enhancer, Renaissance Compressor, and L2 Ultramaximizer limiter in one 2U rackmount hardware unit.

Waves MaxxBCL will give the user optimal results in Live Sound Reinforcement, Broadcast Production and Mastering and Post-production. Featuring state-of-the-art transformers, 48 bit double-precision processing with a massive 1256dB of dynamic range, the Waves MaxxBCL is capable of 24bit/96kHz precision.

MaxxBCL supports optical, coaxial SPDIF, AES/EBU, balanced, and unbalanced line-level analog signals. Built for the rigors of the road, MaxxBCL’s rugged construction handles even the toughest environments. Best of all, it’s easy to use. Its sleek precision controls and back-lit display let you focus on the sound, not the box.

MaxxBCL is Waves’ premier Live Sound tool. Its combination of world-class bass enhancement, compression and limiting, plus its rugged construction make it the ideal hardware solution for live venues of all shapes and sizes. Today, many of the biggest names in show business are using MaxxBCL. including Ratt Sounds, Gwen Stefani, Cirque de Soleil, and Metallica, to name just a few.

Every radio and television station wants the loudest, best-sounding signal possible. As a broadcaster, you need to serve a variety of different systems, from headphones and computer speakers to televisions and car stereos. It isn’t always easy. Traditional bass boosts cut into your dynamic range since bass peaks require extra headroom. And everyday compression and limiting methods add unwanted artifacts to your signal.

You won’t find ears more discriminating than those of the Mixing engineers in the mastering and post-production environment. They require the cleanest signal path and the most accurate sound quality to give every project the finishing touch of power and perfection. They are the last stop before the music goes public, and it has to sound right. But that’s only half the story: They also need first-rate processing tools to create that broadcast-ready sound that listeners expect and clients demand.
