The process of installing the BBE D82 Sonic Maximizer plug-in was quick and easy as I had no compatibility issues or any other problems.  After a few minutes I had the plug-in running and was learning how to use it, which also didn't take too long.  The plug-in has a simple interface and those with any experience with any other version of the BBE Sonic Maximizer will already understand how to use it because it is pretty much the same as any other version of it.  It has three parameters - one for lo contour, one for process, and one for output level.  It also has metering for overall output and a button to bypass the plug-in.  I don't have a manual for the BBE D82 Sonic Maximizer but it is easy enough to use that you don't really need one.


I am currently running the BBE D82 Sonic Maximizer on a Mac Book Pro that has a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 4 GB of RAM.  I use the plug-in in Pro Tools LE 7.4 that runs with a Digi 002R audio interface.  Although I don't use the plug-in all that often, I have used both this version of the plug-in and another one so I do have a good amount of experience with BBE Sonic Maximizer plug-ins.  Within my set up, the plug-in works pretty flawlessly if you use only a few of them as the plug-in won't take up much processing power at all.  Even if you wanted to run a lot of them at a time you shouldn't have a problem if you have an adequate machine, but it really depends on what type of system you are running it on.


I've been using the BBE D82 Sonic Maximizer for only a short while as this is the newest version of the plug-in.  I've been quite satisfied with the plug-in since I started using it even though I only use it every once in a while.  It works great for adding a little punch to your sound, but I try not to use it too much as I find that you can suck the mids out of a sound if you use it too often.  The price isn't too bad at all and once you have it you won't ever need another plug-in like this as this will do the job.  All in all, this is a nice little plug-in that is cool to have, but is by no means essential to any recording set up.
