I tried building it for 32 bit windows, but everybody who tests it says it crashes their DAW:

how do you set the reverb time for this reverb?
The mid range decay time is just the room size divided by 20, so a 10 meter room has 0.5s mid range decay, and a 40 meter room has 2.0s mid range decay. I have had a number of people ask for the decay time to be a separate dial, I'm seriously considering it as a v1.2 feature.

Hibiki is often my go to reverb. Looking forward to trying this. I have fired it up in VSTHost and I really like the waterfall spectrum display.

I do wonder if there could be some reduction in graphical resolution of it to make the drawing more responsive.

Late here, but will listen ASAP and update my comment.

Having said that: for open source freeware such as this one 32bit makes perfect sense because it's useful to those who really can't afford a halfway modern 64bit system.
I only meant those. What commercial developers do, is not very interesting for me. With about 4000 freeware plugins directly available to experiment with, my needs in this field are mostly satisfied until...estimated 2025.
But I consider a company offering software today only in 64 bit as arrogant. It's a kind of arrogance like Apple's - we do what we want, and if you cannot follow that with the money in your pocket, well, suit yourself !
The arrogance is also in a part of your reply; how people who cannot afford new computers, or do not want to 'step up' because of compatibility issues, automatically are freeware users, eludes me. They probably are, but not mandatory. They (for example) maybe had once the money to buy a then powerful system, maybe with special peripherals, but not now (again with peripherals). Besides, to dump once powerful systems which aren't 64-Bit ready, but still working, is wastefulness.

A new experimental feature has just been released:

https://github.com/michaelwillis/dragon ... /tag/1.1.0

Read more about it on that page, but the short story is that this introduces a new dial that controls the decay time.

This reverb is getting better and better :D

Btw, will you make a manual for it? Some controls have weird names and aren't exactly intuitive.

A manual is in the works, hopefully there will be a 1.2.0 release soon with the manual.

Sorry, every time I try to build a 32 bit version, people just tell me that it crashes their DAW.
