That's not much close, but that plugin indeed has those algorithm switches, both for late and early reflections, which is neat if you do any sound design or just serious mixing.

I've heard great things about Proximity, but haven't tried it. There is also Panagement, which has a native Linux version and some similar features to Proximity.

It's one that i haven't gotten back around to yet since they fixed a glitch. The minor drawback with it is for full functionality with delay, you pay. It's not expensive and if i didn't have Wine i'd probably pop for it and may well still down the line.. All's well.

Thx gang

Hi y'all, try out the update to Dragonfly Plate: Release 2.9.1-beta. This one allows you to pick from three plate algorithms called Simple, Nested, and Tank. The tank algorithm is based on STRev, and was used in the previous release (2.9.0-beta). The Simple and Nested algorithms are two variations of Freeverb3's NVerb, where they were called A and B respectively in NVerb's interface. To better hear the differences between the algorithms, crank up the decay time a bit and it will be much more obvious.

If I haven't said it before: Michael, you rock! Tackling this kind of problem while claiming "I'm not really a programmer: I just play one on TV" is a nice schtick, but none of us are buying it.

Pre-release 2.9.2-beta fixes a couple of bugs related to the High Cut and Low Cut dials: 2.9.0-beta and 2.9.1-beta would apply these two filters to the dry signal, and the plugin would often get into a state in which it would act like both the High Cut and Low Cut were turned all the way down.

Try 2.9.3-beta, it fixes another bug with the High Cut dial acting weird.

Now that the plate plugin has stabilized, I'm working on my other goal for v3: A stand-alone early reflections plugin. I've been wanting to do this ever since seeing Glenn Fricker's showcase in which he turned the late reverb level down to zero. The new plugin uses the same the early reflections algorithm as Dragonfly Room and Hall, but doesn't include a late reverb algorithm.

Image

You will notice the "Reflection Type" menu, which wasn't available in the Hall or Room plugins. While digging around in Freeverb3's early reflections algorithm, I found that it contained several lists of numbers representing gain levels and delay times for different reflection patterns, but the Freeverb3 plugins only used one of those settings. I decided to expose some of the other ones, and indeed they result in quite different sounds. I made up names only vaguely related to how they sound, try them all! The one called "Concert Venue" is the one used in the Freeverb3 plugins as well as Dragonfly Room and Hall.

The color scheme is supposed to represent some of the pastel colors of early morning... I'm still trying to decide if I like it, but it will probably grow on me like the other plugins did.

Took it for a quick spin... It's in the favourites now. :D

Thanks again!
