Think of it like the RIAA curve
, I guess?
I assume this is how it's functioning. It's a great addition to an already brilliant plugin. I'm sure Jatin will chime in with a more technical explanation soon, but I think it works in a similar manner, anyways...
PS: Jatin, regarding the graphics stuff, I'm still around, I haven't forgotten about the plans, just been crazy busy with life and work, but I'm getting there, will be in touch shortly!
Yes, the pre-/post-emphasis filters work similar to the RIAA curves, in that the pre- and post- filters have exact opposite frequency responses. The difference is that you get to choose the frequency response of the pre-emphasis filter using the bass/treble knobs, and the post-emphasis filter will automatically adjust. In the future I might add another knob to control the "transition frequency" between the bass/treble sections.
@rbn777, no worries! Thanks so much for all your help with graphics, feel free to reach out whenever you have the time! (for everyone else, please thank him for designing the GUI for this plugin and ChowPhaser).

One little thing : with mix group able plugins, I tend to like a hint a color to remember quickly which instances are linked.
So maybe adding a small color line above the bottom section (or being able to give a name to the group, ie "drums" instead of "2", or a little circle shape filled with a color next to the group number) could help identify quickly the groups ?
Ooh, this is a good idea, I'll try out a couple things and see what might work.

Dude, you update your plugins more frequently than some commercial developers, you genuinely have nothing to be sorry about. I wish you would start developing plugins in the way Tony Klanghelm does so that we could support you. Thank you.
Thanks for the kind words! If you do wish to support, you can donate using the "Sponsor" button on the plugin GitHub page
. That said, I feel a bit uncomfortable asking for money for this plugin, for a few reasons:
- The CHOW Tape plugin is part of the supporting material for a 2019 conference paper
on analog tape modelling. I've been continuing to update the plugin because I think it's important for research to be equally useful both for academics and practitioners (in this case, mixing engineers and producers). The point of publishing that research in the first place was to share the information, so it would be antithetical to put the supporting material behind any sort of paywall.
- In general, I make plugins purely out of enjoyment, and to be able to use them in my own mixes and productions. It feels odd asking for donations to support a personal past-time, almost like asking for people to donate to support me hanging out and drinking beer with my pals.
- I don't really need the money; I have a steady job, and am financially stable. Especially in this time, there are plenty of other people and institutions out there that need support far more than I do.
That said, if you do feel like donating, go ahead. I'm not sure what I would do with that money just yet. If I can somehow use it to support building more plugins, I would like to do that, otherwise I'll probably pass on the donation to a worthy cause.
