If you don't already know it, this freeware by Magnus at Smartelectronix is a very nice sounding 4 band compressor with drive function for each band, but comes with no graphical user interface (GUI) so here's a skin to make it more usable. (original plugin included)


To use the skin you need Asseca's mGUI program, here's how to set it all up:

1. If you don't already have it, install the mGUI program somewhere OUTSIDE your VSTPlugins folder. (for example in \Program Files)

2. Unzip the skin file for MjMultibandCompressor directly into the Asseca folder that was created in step 1, this will put all the files and folders in their right places.

3. if you already had MjMultibandCompressor installed previously, delete it or move it somewhere outside any VSTPlugin folder.

4. Start mGUIman.exe, it's located in the \Asseca\asData folder. Click the "Update ALL Dlls" button in the top left corner. This will 'wrap' the skin around the compressor plugin to make a new dll called MjMultibandCompressor_GUI.dll.

5. Still in mGUIman, in the left window, click on where it says MjMultibandCompressor_GUI so that it's hihlighted, then click the button called "DLL folder" in the top menu and in the dialog window that comes up, browse to where in your VSTPlugin folder you want the new dll (skinned MjMultibandCompressor) to be.

That's it, the dll with the skin (MjMultibandCompressor_GUI.dll) can now be selected and used in your host.
