Only available in VST3 Format. Which wouldn't be that bad if: I tried to bridge it with vst3shell to use it in Live 9.7 which does not have VST3 support. But I still can't get the GUI to load, which is unusual. Every other .vst's I bridge in this way work seamless. So STFU seems to have however a unique build interface which is not compatible with every system. I saw a review of another Live user having similar issues regarding the STFU plugin to work in Live. So it could be just Live having trouble with this plugin, but it could also be something in the plugin itself.

I do not understand why so many developer nowadays only produce VST3's and let us having not exactly "up-to-dated" DAWs down. Of course, it's the new and better standard, but please always consider that not everyone uses software which is only 2 years old. :-(

I really loved the idea of using the plugin, but that is a real deal breaker. Sorry.

Спасибо огромное, Zeek, за представленный STFU.

Для меня это стало лучшим бесплатным плагином этого лета.

Плагин действительно потрясающий и среди своих аналогов превосходит даже некоторые платные продукты.

Надеюсь это видео может кому-то помочь;).

Небольшой обзор плагина STFU (язык видео - русский)

Has a beautiful UI which allows for the creation of amazing volume automation effects, will probably be using it in my projects a lot as I am experimenting with other music genres like EDM, Future Bass and Dubstep. Keep up the good work.

Can't believe I created an account on kvr just to write here. Ableton does not recognize your plugin. In the installation it says it goes to "C:Program FilesCommon FilesVST3" but there's nothing there after. I wasted my day trying to find the vst3 to put in the right folder, and nothing. I'm so pissed.

Please fix this. The plugin looks pretty decent. The first decent free volumeshaper ever. Or consider making the file available for manual installation, I don't understand why every company doesn't do that.

Does what it's supposed to but is also can get creative. It's easy to use and the waveforms provide quick, flexible modulation.

@ThalesChap I've added a direct download of the .vst3 on the website (https://zeeks.app), please email the support address there if you have any more issues so I could get some more information. Cheers.

Works fine with Ableton & other Windows hosts. In Ableton, you have to make sure that Ableton knows the path to VST3 - there's a preference setting for it under "plug-ins".

Works like a charm, thanks for the direct download link to the vst3.

I wonder if people having problems with the installers are logged in their computers as admin. If you have problems, try this : Right-click the .exe, select "Run as administrator". Might fix it.

What exe file? Your DAW?

GUI doesn't show up in Reaper. There are far too many parameters to tweak for it to be usable without one (using Reapers generic UI, like with airwindows stuff, etc).

@kurekt1 I can't seem to PM you here because you only have 1 post; could you email support@zeeks.app so I could get some more information and help? Cheers.

This really looks excellent! I wish I could get it running in MPC (Akai Windows DAW) --- it's VST2 only.

26 July 2021 at 6:20pm

If there was an unencumbered way to release VST2 these days, I would be happy to -- it's all policy annoyance at this point due to unnamed company dropping support for it and strongly preventing new people from distributing VST2, but I'm perfectly able to build it...

@RobertSchulz. Steinberg doesn't allow new developers to develop VST2.
