Waves Renaissance Maxx (Native) Reviews4.6/5.0 based on 9 customer reviews
Out of all the plug-ins I have (and I have a lot) these are the ones that get used on EVERY song. These are the ones my friends who make their living mixing records use on EVERY song. Why? 1) They are great, 2) They are cheap, 3) Everyone uses them so when sessions get sent around the mixes still sound the same. Try them for free for two weeks when you've got mix projects and I think you'll agree.
Do you have a ProToolsLE system and need to get your first batch of really good plug-ins? This is the go-to bundle for 7 very usable plugs that will add character to your sound while solving sonic situations. The Renaissance Channel is a must for cleaning up a drum mix and RenVOX is one of the best simple solutions available for compressing a feature instrument or vocal.

Great deal on great pluginsI like the sound and control that renaissance EQ gives me for my work. The compressor is very useful too. Convolution Reverb Is just an added bonus that allows me to create my own spaces.

Excellent plug-ins at a great priceMixing an acoustic project right now and these plug-ins are going on every track. The compressor is surprisingly nice, and I've even used it as a buss master comp a few times. The EQ is simple to use and sounds great, and the Vox and DeEsser plug-ins make vocal tracks sit perfectly in the mix. Both reverbs sound way better than their price tag, and the Renaissance Channel is my go-to plug-in for kick, snare, and toms.
I wish there was a gate in this bundle, but that's a minor complaint as there is already so much value in here.
If you're still using stock plug-ins you owe it to yourself and your mixes to pick this up! The compressors and EQ alone are worth the price.

Waves Renaissance Maxxwaves plugins are the best!... this one does not get a five star because: although these are great plugins... they do not have enough control. They seem to be a stripped down version. They still work great but I would like a little more control over some variables. But for the money... BUY IT!

Required materials.It's simple. If you are buying ProTools or another DAW for the first time, you should be required to buy this, as well. It will take your mixes to a level that the included plugins simply cannot approach. I have mixed tracks at studios that have every plugin imaginable and a few RenMaxx plugs will still find their way into the mix. The three comps, Rvox, RenAxx, and the Rcomp give you three easy to use flavors to beef up tracks. The "warm clipping" feature is a nice touch as it allows you to drive the compressor as you would be able to drive real analog gear. The EQ's are solid, as well. The De-esser is a must for most condenser mics, especially the lower end Condensers that tend to have a certain harshness in the highs. Rverb is a really, really solid reverb plugin. Finally, Waves Tune LT is a very useful lite version of Tune that is just a great bonus. Since I got the RenMaxx bundle I have purchased many more plugins. However, I still use RenMaxx plugs all the time. It's a great price. They are really easy to use. And EVERYONE else in the world has them so it's easy to move your mix from studio to studio.

The Desert Island BundleIf this bundle alone blew my effects budget, it would be no problem at all. Two wonderful reverbs with very different results, a powerful yet transparent eq, a bigger-than-life compressor that still sounds natural, and yet even all that does not begin to exhaust the power that this package puts in your hands. If you're starting out, get this and invest the money you save in room treatment, a versatile mic and a good preamp because this bundle is a top-quality category killer when it comes to basic, everyday essential mixing tools.

QualityHard to give anything a 5 star, but these are excellent plug-ins. Ordered them from Sweetwater as the only add-on to my LE 8.0 set-up and have been very pleased. If these plug-ins fit into your budget, you will be pleased with the decision to buy them. I have several other mastering tools now, but always go back to Waves. They make GOOD stuff!!

Great Plugs At A Great PriceThis is a great set of plugins. I love them for this price. They give you a good variety and cover most everything, from a Channel Strip to a Tuner. I am very pleased with these. They are easy on a processor too. I wish it had a limiter. But good nonetheless.

Waves RocksAnyone I've ever talked to, myself included, loves waves plugins. I've never seen a plugin tha they've made that I haven't gotten some se out of (even enigma). If you want to get into Waves Plugins without breaking a small project/home studio budget, Renaissance MAXX is your answer. Just having the Renaissance compressor is worth the price. It is probably my all time favorite software compressor. Sounds a lot like certain vintage comps whos remakes are going for thousands of dollars.
