    These plug-ins are great! The reverb reminds me of a rack reverb, both in flexibility and quality. I suspect having 3 algoritms loaded simultaneously eats up a lot of register space. The parametric equalizer reminds me of FxEq from SONAR, only this one's better. :)

    It is common to have one short and one long reverb in a song, so I miss that (there aren't enough registers). Being able to route the reverb onto a separate mixing bus and lift the heavy weight of reverb processing off of the CPU is great, though. Even with 2 GHz. :D

    He's talking about using a different bus (not the main one) from the FXBus, to send a signal to the UFX reverb.
    This way you get a very nice sounding, CPU resources free, reverbered sound.
    I agree that it's a pity that we can't use more than one instance of reverb but then again... we're in the ballpark of a creamware card, using a SB Live!...
    And this alone, is amazing...
    THANKS A LOT MAX FOR YOUR WONDERFUL NEW EQ!!!!
    Please, now you got all the components you need to just put them together and build us a nice Channel Strip. ;-)

    Gonzo.

    I connect FXbus6 and 7 to the reverb's inputs, and set SONAR's Aux 1 to output 6/7,

    "Reverb R" - reverberation processor
    "EQ G10" - 10 band graphic equalizer
    "EQ P5" - 5 band parametric equalizer
    "Surrounder" - channels configuration manager (surround encode/decode, bass redirection etc.)
    "GainX" - "in-place" level control
    "PeakX" - peak meter with extended resolution
    "Timbre" - aka "Tone Control", aka "Bass/Treble"

    how about a multi-band compressor? that would be nice. and if the pitch shifter had some more controls (precision?)...

    mbcomp - someday - this will be very interesting to write...

    Max,

    I noticed on GainX, when you switch from one settings file to another, then back again, gainX will retain its Modified setting, but the knob itself visually resets to 0db

    did you intend that?

    > That way if you remove the kx drivers, you dont delete your effects settings (when upgrading to later versions or debuging).

    uniform plugins store their presets in their own registry entry (not in the driver's one) so custom presets are not lost when driver is installed/uninstalled (non-uniform plugins presets are really lost)...

    i think i'll add presets export/import to/from file for backuping and sharing purposes, but everything else will stay in registry - just because it is generally faster and file-based settings are potentially less safe and could cause more problems/issues...

    >> non-uniform plugins presets are really lost

    not exactly
    they are left unchanged by kxsetup in the recent releases of the driver

    >> backuping and sharing purposes

    yep. that's the only reason for exporting / importing presets and storing them in files at the moment :)
