Same here regarding the easter egg. I had clicked the logo looking for other options like in the amp models and found it pretty quickly. Not sure if others would come across it that fast but it's useful for doing a valid comparison between bypassed and effected signal. The reason i bought it was because i was able to determine it actually sounded better and wasn't just due to the volume boost. I know you can get around that easy enough by using channel volume if you didn't know it was there and it's pretty easy to find so it's probably a non-issue anyway.

I didn't even know it existed before I read the manual, and how many people are just gonna skip reading it because the plugin is dead simple? How are you gonna do quick A/B comparison if you're using the DAW volume as make-up gain? Definitely not a non-issue IMHO, especially as this thing always seems to add a slight gain boost among other things.

I would tend to agree also about that volume knob. I will use it to A/B sounds and it's non productive to have to make it visible.

While where at it, in KClip3, there is a function to hear only the processed (affected) signal. I don't know if it's possible in True Iron? Don't know, if it's full band processing in a no-go but i have to ask...

Great name btw "true iron". Sounds epic.

It's because the out gain knob was something that didn't make its way in until mid beta, and I wasn't happy with how it affected the layout. It will get a permanent spot when I have a chance to give the layout a rethink. Sorry about that, but at least it's there!

Hey, this thing sounds great, Shane! Thanks for developing such a killer plugin. It really adds a thickness to the sound unlike anything I've heard before. No complaints here!

I'm really liking the sound too. By the way I noticed that the Output gain knob affects the signal even if Mix is set to zero.

I would argue in favor of it only affecting the Wet signal, because then you can set the dry/wet balance without loudness bias, and the resulting mix will also be gain compensated because Wet matches Dry's loudness.

The more I respect the suggest chain, sprinkle a little True Iron everywhere, ValveEQ on the bus, True Iron on the master and KClip3, the less I use/need EQ's.

Amidst the teargas and burning trash bins that the Brainworx SSL plugin release has become over on GS, Jantex offered some high praise for True Iron:

That's how it used to work in KClip, for a time. I put this to a vote, and the way it is today across my plugin lineup is a reflection of that user vote.

Good stuff. You know, I've been trolled so hard in the past over at GS also, so I have some sympathy for Dirk here. I feel I've gotten lucky that True Iron hasn't been mercilessly slaughtered this time also. GS is brutal. No good deed goes unpunished there.

Little did I know when I suggested you’d hit one out of the park that True Iron would make its entrance on cue. It’s going in my shopping cart right after lunch. Congratulations and Bon Ouikend! Charles

Holy shit. This is really awesome.

Wow.

I'm not one for wow's and drooling (I rather say software is shit or complain), but hot damn this is nice.

Brilliant plugin. On all mix stems already, over here. It’s like parmesan on pasta.

Hey Shane...

Your installer is still a liiiiitle bit crazy :(

1. We cannot decide the exact name of the VST folder the plugin is going into. It's always added in "Kazrog LLC" subfolder. What if I want the vendor subfolder to just be called "Kazrog"? :) (Minor nitpick, I know.)
2. Uninstaller always goes to raw "Program Files (x86)" subfolder with the name of the plugin (i.e. "C:\Program Files (x86)\KClip3.0.2". It's not put into a Kazrog subfolder. Also, if it's 64-bit only, why would it put the uninstaller in x86 Program Files? Should be in 64-bit one (even if the uninstaller is a 32-bit app).

Yeah, it's annoying, right? Only recently did the installer vendor offer some better options here, so I'll be sure to take advantage of that as soon as possible. Sorry!
