Hi,

I've been playing around with the old demo lately and I still think polysquasher is rather unique.  However, it would be extremely useful if it supported external sidechaining, like Crunchessor.  This would allow it to be a very powerful mastering tool could do variable linked Mid/Side compression with it and also use it to tame bass peaks with a LPF in the path.  Especially in mode 1 it seems to be extremely transparent on peaks which is ideal for controlling bass peaks (kick, booms and ringing notes) with a LPF in the sidechain.

Please, would it be possible to consider this addition?

Cheers!

I will think about it.  Actually, I have hopes to use the new development libraries - it is possible that adding side-chain (like in Crunchessor) to any plug-in won't be much of a hassle.  Beside that I'm waiting for VST3 - possibly, side-chain functionality is built-in there.

Any news on this?  Polysquasher with external sidechain would be extremely powerful.

Another question?  Is the attack of this thing "instant" in any of the modes?  I mean, can this be use as a kind of a 'cut-the-tops-off' limiter?  I guess I could figure it out myself by just doing some careful listening but I'm lazy and don't have the demo installed at the moment so I rather just ask. :-)

Cheers!

No news, sorry...

Attack is indeed 'instant' in Polysquasher.  Indeed, this is working similar to a brickwall limiter, with a bit of look-ahead, but not as heavy.
