Hope to get the new plugin uploaded tomorrow.

I'm not 100% happy with this filter, it needs better bass response and gain compensation, I think I tried to do too much with this filter, and to improve it would require going back to the drawing board. I learned a bit more about filter design so I can take this knowledge for my next attempt.
How did you go about learning filter design? Electrical engineering school?

I'm going to release this silently (not update the front page) because I forgot that I need to get a mac up and running to do mac builds.

DOWNLOAD UPDATE (windows only): https://www.elanhickler.com/Soundemote/ ... 2.0.1.vst3

I added Rev3 filter and an option in the menu to bypass clipping.

I was doing some tests and listening to Rev1 [Clean], Rev3 is different, and actually Rev1 turns out to still be useful.

I'm a bad person to ask about how to learn filter design. Apparently people read this thing: https://www.native-instruments.com/file ... 2.0.0a.pdf

I haven't read it and the way I design filters is brute force experimentation and I don't know what I'm actually doing, but there's no pdf that teaches you how to make a filter that is bubbly / chaotic / self-interacting, or a filter that has frequency-dependent downsampling grunge, which I have been able to do, so... *shrug*

Has anyone tried the new download with Reaper? I installed the new version above (2.0.1.vst3) in an existing Reaper project in Windows 10. The new Flower Child filter appears briefly (larger window than the previously installed x64 dll) but it immediately causes Reaper to crash. I've included the Administrative event below. Is there anything else I should capture?

That really sucks. If anyone else gets a crash let me know.

So, I was also thinking about releasing the final version of Flower Child with the current models, basically removing Rev3, the current filter models are decent and I need to consider a whole new product if I want to make another generation of filter models with another design philosophy.
