Pretty nice. Will buy them. Can the FC70 Vintage Limiter be used as a compressor in the master channel?

@sysrqer: That's what the market we find ourselves in is dictating to us at the moment, sadly, even though I believe we have an excellent product that should be worth ten times as much. They won't be any less, and they certainly won't ever be free - more that than I can't really say, but I do hope to make the V3 updates for the other plug-ins available in the near future.

@lilith:

Yes that's exactly how you should use it. Its a soft-knee compressor / limiter, so as you back off the threshold you get more into the 'compression' part of the curve.

Thanks - you might find the activation file for the FC70 is labelled as WIn / Mac - but it should work for linux too.

I highly recommend all Overtone DSP plugins.

Here's the Fairchild 670 compressor original manual from 1959:

I have some problems installing it. I'm on Debian. I downloaded the file, unpacked it and executed it by clicking on it. When asked for a password I entered my root password. The problem is that I can't choose my vst folder as it's a hidden folder ~/home/marco.vst . Only non-hidden folders are shown and I can't enter it manually.

The plugin-activation-Linux.pdf in your zip file may be of help.

Only non-hidden folders are shown and I can't enter it manually.
The installer is provided for convenience, as a work-around you can either: install the plug-in to a non-hidden location and then move the FC70.so file manually (which I admit does kind of limit the point of the installer) or, there is a read-me in the download, and you can copy the FC70.so file manually. Later versions of the installer (for example in the PTC2A V3) now show hidden folders.
(For a bit of history, the default location for VST used to be /usr/lib/lxvst - which required root permissions and many users found that too complicated to do manually, so the installer was included to make things simpler, then various distros / overlays started to customise to their own locations, which made things even more confusing for users, and eventually it seems ~.vst was adopted - ironically our installer hides hidden folders (as you might expect) to try to make things easier - just goes to show how almost impossible it is to make things easy to install on linux no matter how hard you try... :) )
If you have any problems installing or activating the software, send me an email (via our support page) and I'll help out.

(And, if you are using Ardour as a host, you'll likely need to rescan your plug-ins, because its default behaviour seems to be to make it as difficult as possible to discover / scan new plug-ins - and I still can't understand why)

I for one never used any installer with the Overtone DSP plugins. I simply copy the .so file in a folder I created for the Overtone DSP plugins which is in the path of both Bitwig and Mixbus32C.

Cheers.

BTW, I posted the £10 offer at the Harrison forum. One user has gotten the FC70.

BTW2, there's no announce on KVR. I can post in 'Instruments' if you wish.

A product I would consider an instant buy, would be a re-make
of Camel Audio's CM_Fuzz/CamelCrusher,
a small panel with big knobs and on/off buttons for

Distortion
Filter
Compressor
Volume/wet-dry

with a randomizer, preset management,
and a dozen varied and useful presets.

This would be a great showcase for your
existing and future code, and once the framework
was in place, could be re-purposed for targeted
situations adinfinitum.
An approach IK Multimedia and now BlueCat
are using to good effect.

I find the immediacy of the Camel plugin presentation
to be a good balance between complexity and diversity,
and can count on achieving a sound worth considering,
without needing to engage something with a dizziing
full-screen pallette of options.

Cheers
