The constant lasting heat and humidity in the Rhein-Main area are driving me nuts atm and everything seems to be slowed down a little bit. Anyhow I’ve just managed to update the VST effects page with the missing preFIX entry including tips&tricks which might be extended over time. As a reminder, if you want to contribute some of your very own usage tips then please don’t hesitate and post here or eMail me and I will include them over there.
Beside that, some bugfixing efforts still takes their time for the preFIX plug-in. It will cover some fixes for reported denormal issues and will lower some signal path simulation side-effects in the LF department of the filters. Maybe more. As a side story, working with program dependent envelope curves catched my interest again quite recently when I’ve re-discovered some older unfinished work on that topic. This is really fun but complex as hell since the possibilities are nearly endless. Choosing the right concepts (which are devising a musical impression at the end) is the ticket.
Working further on my stateful saturation concept is constantly keeping me busy. The DSP concepts are still getting harder and harder the more I deep-dive into the non-linear math behind it. Quite recently, I’ve managed to evolve most of my previous work into a “Wiener-Hammerstein” (LNL) system. It exploits some neat properties without the common drawbacks of other nonlinear systems with memory, such as high latency in combination with very high computational expense. Very promising. Maybe there will appear some more background info on that topic here in the Blog sooner or later but the implementation itself right into a usable DSP plug-in still remains just a longterm outlook.
Way more concrete and likely might be a very first VoS plug-in release solely dedicated to mastering purposes.
