Presenting the latest version of Kuassa’s ooh-so-handy limiter / loudness maximizer: Kratos 2 Maximizer; featuring the new Adaptive Mode for Attack and Release parameters, dithering section, up to 4x oversampling, inter-sample peak detection, and completely redesigned graphics.

The purpose of the original Kratos Maximizer VST / AU plugin was to make your mixes immediately LOUD. In addition, the new Kratos 2 Maximizer also serves as a solid mix finalizer; aside from offering additional methods to manage your mixes’ dynamics with Adaptive Mode, you can now push further than before without fear: Crank the Maximize knob, tune the unique Texture knob to taste, tweak Attack and Release for tighter or loose response, then adjust the Knee for harder / smoother limiting action. Throughout, the signature Kuassa no-nonsense design will guide your hands, eyes, and ears, giving you the freedom to create your maximum sound.


  • Transparent, precision limiting / loudness maximizing
  • Unique Texture knob for smooth or harder character
  • Attack and Release parameter with the new adaptive option
  • 3 dithering options with 3 modes of bit depth to accommodate wide range of mastering needs
  • Up to 4x oversampling mode
  • CV Control Inputs
  • Compact user interface, straightforward workflow

The VST, VST3, Audio Units, and AAX version is now available to purchase at Kuassa Shop for $69: For the owners of Kratos Maximizer V1, upgrade is available for $15 via the Member Area. Free upgrade for purchase made on March 2015 and after.
