Chokehold has announced the release of Clipmax, a freeware clipper effect in VST/AU plugin formats for 32-bit and 64-bit Windows and Mac OS based digital audio workstations.
The plugin is fairly basic feature-wise and therefore very easy to use. The Pre Gain and Post Gain knobs are there to boost or tame the volume on the input and the output, whereas the Ceiling knob sets the clipper threshold (it can be pushed all the way down to -24 dB). With these three controls, Clipmax can easily go all the way from very subtle clipping of the peaks (which often does a great job at putting drums and other transient rich audio material under control) to crazy hard clipping distortion.

Clipmax is available for free download via Chokehold’s website (5.20 MB download size, ZIP archive, 32-bit & 64-bit VST/AU plugin format for Windows & Mac OS).
