though Im a long term Voxengo user, I just realized today, what a beast Polysquasher is! Compared it with a few other bus/mastering compressors and than I had to buy it :)
It really does this "glue" thingy - IMO better than the so called "TheGlue" ;)
Only little downside I see.
You leave your user pretty much alone...with his ears.
Not much info about the different modes...
I dont ask for technical descriptions!
A few more presets and some thoughts about the basic sound concept of the 4 modes, would already be very helpful!
I dont say this to cause you work...I just say it cause I want you to sell more plugins! People love such guidance!
Seriously...a few more presets. Or some words about the basic character of each mode, would be a helpful guideline for the ears.
here are some of my impressions:
mode 1 - very transparent. even with higher ratio (1.5 - 2).
Can't go wrong with this one!
If its reacting to heavy on the bass...add a little bit of "hi slope".
mode 2 - smooth, classic compression. works good with low ratios
mode 3 - close to mode 2, but seems a lil more transparent.
Really like that one with punch enabled! A transparent but smooth compression.
mode 4 - seems to be very threshold dependent.
Really need to find the threshold sweet spot on this one.
For me this is the loudness Rider!
My favorite atm is mode 1 with a "1.0 hi slope"
Something like this...Im sure you could describe much better and help our laptop-speaker-bothered ears finding a way ;)
ofc they are subjective...
even my own perception is changing constantly (thats why Im mostly on Mode 4 now).
and thats the reason why I was asking for some developers advice!
You must have had some idea about the sound concept/behaviour of the 4 different Functions...
or the 4 Gain Average modes...
You leave us with lots of possibilities and very little guidance.
Its like playing a bebop jazz gig just by heart.
sure it can be done by ear - for the very experienced ones...
but its helping the ears a lot!
if you have some hint about the chords...;-)
