I've checked out the website but can't find anything about a DAE replacement. I'm not surprised, no one but Digi could write a new DAE unless they had access to restricted information and/or cracked code.
I did notice the DAG 24 bit Optimized Mixer though. Has anyone tried this plugin? For that matter does anyone know anything about the company? I'm a bit apprehensive about adding anything to my setup that I'm not 100% sure about.
Like Greg, I'm wary of new, untested, unverified files when it comes to plugging them into a $50,000+ PT rig that I have to use daily to make a living with. This is the first time I've ever heard of this DAM company. Somebody please test the DAM mixer plug-in and post a DAM review. Who wants to be the DAM guinea pig? DAM it.
Okay I have tried it. I have a 5.1 mixplus rig running os 9.04...
Everthing works as it should, no problems. It is a dithered mixer derived from mixer B before the hi-res even existed. Sounds better to me than the stock 24 bit mixer and close enough to identical to the hi res mixer.
BUT it works with DP3 and Logic, which the hi res does not.
