The process of installing Waves Ltd. L3 Multimaximizer Native was quick and easy and was one without compatibility issues or other problems.  The whole process only took a few minutes and I had the plug-in up and running on my machine quickly.  The interface of the software didn't take too long to figure out as I was familiar with Waves Ltd. L2 and this version has some similar functions.  At the same time, the L3 is a lot more in depth and it took me a little while to get used to the new features and understand what everything did.  Even if you aren't familiar with previous versions of this plug-in, the interface is user friendly enough that it shouldn't take you too long to understand the plug-in.  I haven't seen the manual for Waves Ltd. L3 Multimaximizer Native, but it isn't really necessary as the plug-in can be figured out without one.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

Since installing the Waves Ltd. L3 Multimaximizer Native plug-in, I haven't encountered any problems at all in terms of running the plug-in.  Since this is a mastering plug-in for the most part, I usually don't use more than one of them at a once and I've never had a problem doing so.  I am currently running the plug-in on a Mac Book Pro that has a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 4 GB of RAM.  I run the plug-in in Pro Tools LE 7.4 that runs off of a Digi 002R audio interface.  While it largely depends on what machine you are running the plug-in on, as long as you have a pretty good machine I don't see why you wouldn't be able to run this plug-in to its full capacity without issues. 

OVERALL OPINION

Since this is a relatively new plug-in, I've only been running the Waves Ltd. L3 Multimaximizer Native for a few months, but I already like it much better than its predecessor, the Waves L2.  It has more features and definitely has a cleaner sound, which is saying a lot as I was a big fan of the L2.  The price of the Waves Ltd. L3 Multimaximizer Native is pretty reasonable and I would say it is definitely a good investment for any home studio owner who is looking for a good limiter.  Overall, this is a very powerful plug-in that I would recommend to home studio owners and professional engineers alike.
