L3-LL / L3: Ultramaximizer vs Multimaximizer.
I read both some say they are both multiband but only multi allows user control over different bands, but ultra is also multiband but it doesn't allow user custom control over different bands.
And than some say only multi is multiband and ultra is broadband.
So which is true ?

I did. Mostly they refer to Ultramaximizer as broadband and Multimaximizer as 5-band.
Except this phrase:
“The L3 Ultramaximizer maintains the general control surface of its predecessors the L1 and L2. It also adds a Profile selector to select different internal settings of the multiband engine”

I don’t know if it’s a mistake in the manual,. Since it’s only this time once hinted that ultramaximizer is multiband.

The Weiss MM1 is my new Maximzer. With the different types of character from neutral, puncy, etc. one particular option will be the best choice for a particular song. It also has a nice smooth sound.

I try different limiters from time to time and keep coming back to waves L3.

The full L3 is comprised of two plug-ins that offer different interfaces to control the same essential algorithm.

Like I said:

Except this phrase in the middle of page 4 in the manual:
