Can anybody recommend a freeware VST effect that is an upward expander that works on selectable bands, hopefully with adjustable Q-width?
Also, can somebody please recommend a freeware VST effect good for upward compression with all the basic compressor adjustables availble?
And does anybody know how to get TLs Maximizer (the limiter version with EQ built-in) working within Reaper? I used to use it alot, but the last times I tried it on Reaper it didn't work.

Thanks in advance.

Does it not seem strange that it's hard to find these?

Icon6 Found a freeware Upward Expander

OK, those turned out to be paywares; not free. They'd work for a few days, but not permanently.

If anybody is interested I found ONE freeware plugin after several long searches on the internet.

The ONLY ONE I FOUND: iQ4GUi (freeware!)

These settings at the bottom can be individually changed to upward expansion.

Re: Looking for upward expander, upward compressor, & TLs Maximizer

OK, I never found TLs Maximizer again, but here's what i've been using instead:

[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]

Download here: [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]

This is actually the best limiter I have ever used in my life and it's free!

To make it like TLs Maximizer, I put a good EQ ahead of it in the chain, and mimic the EQ bands.
There's no Body, function, but you can get that from this Terry West plugin...

CS12m... notice the BODY function in the middle near the bottom.
The EQ in this is excellent anyways, so it's nice for the mix buss.

Download from here: [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]


There is actually a version 1.69 of CS12m but it's hard to find on the net.
If anybody is interested in it, PM me with your email and I can email it to you (it's freeware too).

Summary: So I put those 2 VST effects on my master mix bus and set the lookahead limiter to dual mono with the minimum release time.
I set the audio output level of lookahead limiter to -0.1 dbFS and it's the last thing in the chain before rendering. It's an excellent way to work.
The dual mono mode is used instead of linking because often one side of the stereo pair will be doing something that the other side isn't doing.
That's the nature of stereo and things like autopanning or stereo phasing or automated pans or just regular panning.
Linking the limiter channels would destroy the imaging and also make the overall levels slightly lower.

That's it! Good luck

It turned out to not be freeware and I didn't want to mess with it's installer so I didn't use it. I did find a way to extract the DLL from inside the installer using 7zip, but it was missing some resources and wouldn't run in Reaper. Like I said, I didn't want to mess with it's installer and I found iQ4gui instead.

Thanks anyhow.
