A small but crucial update has been released today for NastyDLA which finally fixes all known issues related to the chorus effect. This is a safe update and should be performed by all users of NastyDLA 1.0 (or the recent 1.0.1 public betas)!
- Fix: modulation artifacts in the chorus section (affects all setups)
- Fix: clearly audible lofi artifacts in the chorus section (crackle or noise) in some setups
- Fix: crackle/artifacts when turning chorus from Off position to On and vice versa
- Improvements: further assembler optimizations with lower overall cpu footprint
- Minor improvements: subtly wider and better chorus imaging
The bug fix releases are available for:
- BootEQ mkII 2.1.1
- Density mkII 2.0.3
- FerricTDS 1.5.1
- NastyVCS 1.0.1
This are Win32 releases only (SSE2 or higher) and are bug fix releases which addresses the following issues: [Read more…]

So, after blogging for around 22 month this humble Blog received its millionth view today. 122 posts were written and two and a half thousand comments had been provided by you, as well as some hundreds of thousand (!) of plug-in downloads. Busiest day was 8th of May this year, the day after the NastyVCS release, but I’m pretty much sure that this record gets busted quite soon.

After 3 month of bugfixing, improving and testing, version 1.5 of the award-winning tape dynamics simulator is finally available as of today. It features numerous fixes and additions and if you did not tried it yet don’t miss it now! [Read more…]
The “nasty signal coloring fx series” becomes legacy and won’t be developed any further from now on. Though, the whole package will still remain available to download for quite a while. The upcoming channel strip release is going to replace this small package and will bring it onto the next level.
The public beta for the upcoming FerricTDS 1.5 has been closed today – thanks for all the contributions! A final version will be released here somewhere in March.
The epicVerb vstpresets had been not available to download for quite a while and that was because the eV 1.5 update had broke compatibility. The stuff is back online again now.
What is that file about? It only matters for Cubase 4 (or higher) users and provides the original factory preset bank but with additional 25:75 and 50:50 dry/wet mix levels so one could use the presets more easily on the insert bus. I hope someday eV will have a “wet only” switch (or such alike) to make this obsolet.
