Stagger 1.0.3 is now available @ http://www.audiopoison.com/products/stagger
What is Stagger?
STAGGER is a modulation orientated multi-filter / multi-effect that puts you in control! Focus your energy on your creativity and let STAGGER do the rest of the work for you! With 4 layers, 16 patterns, multiple speeds and a large array of gritty sounding filters and effects however which way you hear fit!
You can check out some demonstration videos @
What Types of Filters and Effects are Included in Stagger?
Stagger includes different orders and structures for all of the common filter types (LP, HP, BP and BS). As well, some of them have been fused together with various distortions and modulation techniques to truly bring out the monster in your track. With the filter/modulation hybrids, you can even make your sounds talk or you can take it a step further by adding one of several of Stagger's uniquely designed formant filters and/or additional distortions to really bring out the beast.
With the filters set a side, you also get several delay based effects that we have deemed appropriate for modulation. They include a devilish detuner, a delay based comb filter, a vibrato, a flanger, a notch controlled phasor with a built in comb filter and a doppler radar for tracking military aircraft which goes hand in hand with some of the military style modulation techniques taken from world war II (maybe this is why our internet connection is being routed through 18.104.22.168).
What Formats Are Supported By Stagger?
Right now Stagger has been developed with support for:
Windows: VST, RTAS.
Mac OS X: Audio Unit, VST, RTAS.
* Supporting both 32-bit and 64-bit format(s)
*AAX support, as well as TDM versions will be released shortly due to several minor set backs we have been experiencing these past few month(s).

I just bought Stagger and it seems awesome.
But I just got to get this off my chest: the License Agreement...
'This Agreement entitles you to install and use one copy of the Software Product'
One copy. On one computer. And then it goes on to tell me how I can't keep a copy of the installer on my harddrive...
Not to sound like a complete d**k here, but I must have bought literally hundreds of audio plugins in my professional career and I can't recall a single one of them that didn't allow installation on at least two computers.
I think it's fair to say that multiple (you know, two, or three) installations is pretty much the norm. Even companies that force me to use iLoks and eLicensers allow me to use their plugins on separate computers at separate occasions. As in I work in my studio during the day and somtimes do additional work on my laptop later.
It's not a completely alien concept.
And don't get me wrong, I think Stagger is an extremely cool plugin - or I wouldn't have bought it.
But maybe I've completely misunderstood this. Please tell me I have.

The EULA has since been updated with revisions stating that as a single user license, you are entitled to install the software on as many systems that you own as long as you are not stepping out side of the "single user" bit of things.
So as far as using it in your studio, on your laptop and from the comforts of your home, that is completely fine!

will the demo be available during the release candidate period?
will there be support for routing AfterTouch as a mod source?
For the demo: yes, the trials have been made available. You will need to register for a free account on the Audio Poison website, which you can do @ http://www.audiopoison.com/get-trial?product=Stagger
As for AfterTouch: no, not at this time. However, the plugin can receive automation from your DAW which can be routed to any parameter you like. As for the modulation, which is handled internally inside of the plugin, this is controlled entirely by envelopes and low frequency oscillators which are exclusive to each of the available effect kernels.
Here is a link to the User Manual, which can hopefully clear up a few things:

Let me know if you have any more questions!
