- Note: due to addition of new parameter, old user presets do no longer work, existing DAW project settings should still work
Almost complete!
Pay attention that the AReleases in Impress and Dynaride works very well!
:wink:
Will do :-)

Hello! I recently discovered this channel strip just when I want to pay for the monthly plan from SSL Oxford native bundle, I stopped it and test the demos from both, but I can't believe that CS-3301 sound better in all ways compared with the Oxford SSL strip!

I want to test more deeply but the CS-3301 demo has a annoying and abrupt sound cut every time, and in a project with a lot of instances, are really horrendous test a complete mix.

Can you changue the demo limitation may be on a 30 days trial? or something? It's very important a "clean" test to decide where I put my dollars.

Thanks!

"In demo mode (without registering) the plugin mutes audio every 90 seconds for a short period. This could be circumvented by clicking on the "CS-3301" label within 90 seconds." (from the manual)

This is not very convenient for several instances.
We may not change this in a short time, but we will consider it for future development.

It's been a while since I last spent time with this. I'm downloading the latest version that seems to have fixes for what bothered me last time I tried it. Looking forward to checking it out again. Not sure i need it with already having so many other channel strips but I do remember I liked the EQ on this and the saturation.

Yes, the EQ sounds great - Just the high shelf isn't to my taste (too steep/harsh) and could also go below 5kHz. Mids and Low end are great!

This developer has to be the best at consistently updating his plugins. The CS-3301 is BTW my absolute favorite channel strip plugin and I have them all. Low CPU, nice GUI, and a great sound.
