Searching for a volunteer for trying out my VST plug

    I have developed a free VST plug with Synth Edit. :)
    It only works in a window host. Like eg Cubase or Wavelab.
    It is a Compressor - Equaliser kind of a plug. Called JP22. ;)

    It's main purpose is not to prove that Jp22 was right in his
    argumentation about dynamics. :)

    I know some of you on this forum sometimes uses soft plugs.

    My question is if anybody can try it out and give an opinion
    on using it in a mastering chain?

    Thanx in advance.

    Here is the download link.

    neat toy :)

    A couple things that bugged me about it and make the learning curve a bit slower than other plugs:

    - no bypass on the EQ (for those of us who don't want the extra dynamics :wink: :wink: )
    - no numerical values as ref. points on any of the knobs/faders (ie: where's zero? What ratio am i compressing at? how long is the release time set to? How many dBs am i boosting/cutting X frew. by? etc...)
    - EQ faders are rather slow to move (minor/cosmetic, i know... picky bastard ain't i? :p)

    After a few minutes of toying with it, i had some fairly respectable results mastering an old mix of mine... haven't tried it on any individual instrument tracks yet...

    Definitly sounds better than most of the home-brew VSTs i've tried...

    Thanx for trying it out and for your comments. :)

    Well this plug is a pre phase experimental state, with a rather limited GUI.

    But I will take your remarks in consideration, for the future development. :)
