The L3-16 Multimaximizer from Waves is a plug-in that performs multi-band peak limiting. The software achieves this by dividing the audio source into sixteen variable bands and utilizing the company's "Peak Limiting Mixer" (PLMixer) engine.
The plug-in uses linear phase crossover filters to divide the audio spectrum, while the PLMixer uses psychoacoustic criteria to decide how much attenuation to apply to each band so that all available headroom is used. The result is that inter-modulation is minimized and overall loudness is maximized, while brick-wall limiting is still maintained.
