Take it to the limit
If you want your Pro Tools tracks to have that professionally mastered sheen, add Maxim to your list of "must have" plug-ins. More than just a world-class peak limiter, Maxim optimizes the overall level of the audio input while preserving the integrity of the original sound. Although Maxim is ideally suited to the stereo master of a mix, it's flexible enough to be used as a dynamics processor on any channel. Maxim also offers built-in dithering, on-line help, and a full-color Histogram, making it ideal for mixing and mastering in any Pro Tools environment. Maxim comes bundled with Pro Tools and Pro Tools | HD.
