Subject: Mastering Plug-in Advice, Waves vs Izotope vs ???

In the past I've used the Waves L1 Ultramaximizer for boosting loudness but at the same time limiting the max output. I really liked it but it doesn't run on my x64 system. I seeking a new plug-in that does the same thing. Or possibly a bundle that contains other useful plug-ins for mastering.

1. What are your preferred plug-ins for loudness/limiting?
2. Are there any free plug-ins that are worth getting?

I recently purchased Acid Pro 7 (included KitCore, Izotope Rack, Garritan plug-ins) and am relatively ignorant to it's stock capabilities so perhaps I've just not discovered that it already has what I'm looking for?

It may run on your system in Acid,m as Acid is a 32-bit app ...

Else Ozone (mastering bundle comes with Sound Forge).

If your using Waves v9 they rum in 32 & 64bit apps
I use Both Waves L1, L2, L3 and Ozone 6.01.
They all work fine

I'm using Windows 7 x64 with Acid Pro 7.0, which I know is a DAW and not mastering software. However I'm not able to purchase sound forge right now and would like to start using the mastering plug-ins with Acid Pro 7.0. I've tried Waves L2 Maximizer but it didn't work I think because it's for use with x32 bit systems only. Do the Izotope mastering plug-ins work well with Acid? If not, are there other recommendations for mastering plug-ins that would work with a x64 bit system in conjunction with Acid?
