I give it a 10 because I haven't heard a better software compressor for acoustic drums and bass, and it is useful for other sources as well. In short, Molot is the cats ballz. Quality! Thank you Vladg/sound. You made a great contribution to the audio software world, and you did it as freeware. You are very generous. Three thumbs up. Also, thanks for the continued development.
I have not used Limiter No.6 enough yet to comment, but I will be doing so after I get to know it more.
In response to Rosko12: The mid scoop is an eq. I find it very useful in taming mid range snap on snare, for adding a little to mid light sources, and for just changing the general character of the source. The mode knob is for matching Molot to different sources - mono, stereo, m/s, etc.
it's got lots of knobs and it's totally free! the HP filter signal gizmo in the top left corner is proabbly what i use the most. the envelope shape thing on the attack is pretty good too. the parallel feature works well. i don't understand what the mid scoop stuff does or the mode knob. but maybe i'll get there one day. it's definitely one of the most versatile and comprehensive compressors out there.
the only thing that bugs me is the limiter. the default setting is "pre" ie before the compression. not sure why that would be particularly useful. however even if you set it to "post" it doesn't seem to do what it's supposed to. at best it's wildly inaccurate. best turning it off.
