    Not a problem, it's your decision.

    Can you make a package for 3535rc2 or we should use 3534 one with it?

    Surrounder and DC offset

    Max

    Thanks very much for the explaination of what goes on with bass redirection. As for fixes for it, I was hard pressed to notice the sound I was seeing in the peak meter. I must assume your correct that the cards adcs and amps do filter the DCoffset out.

    Thanks for the information!

    Cheers

    This may sound really weird but it does happen on my system. If I have REVERB R loaded and my speakers are set to a really loud volume (although with no sound coming through them), I only here normal speakers (amplification) hiss. If I unload REVERB R, I also here computer noise (high pitched noise). I have no clue why that happens. Can someone try it out and cofirm if this also happens on your system? You have to turn your speakers volume quite high to listen to it...

    Reverb and Noise Floor

    Daniel

    I checked this on my system and noticed much the same behaviour. What I believe is happening is that the noise floor of the reverb is masking the computer noise that you hear with no reverb plug loaded. If I look at the peak meter its clear that with Reverb R loaded noise floor is much higher then without it so its basically just one very quiet sound (reverb hiss) drowning out an even quieter one (computer noise). This is all just guess work on my part and would certainly not object to correction if anyone else has a better hypothesis. In the end tho I don't think it matters that much because if I listen back to my raw tracks at any volume that is not painfully loud I can't hear those computer noises at all... they may be there but the program signal is almost 90db louder... talk about drowning it out!

    Anyone else have a better explaination?

    I installed the UFX v34 package over the top of kX 3535 Alpha, and it seems to work fine. Unfortunately, it replaced the kX Surrounder effect with its own. I have some questions:

    1. Is the UFX v34 Surrounder different than the kX 3535 Alpha one, or is it just the graphics in the DSP and Tweak windows that are different?
    2. Is there a way to have both Surrounders available in the list at the same time?

    I also have some feedback:
    1. The web site is poorly maintained. A page is missing, the news is out of date, and there are no links to the newest version. It also loaded very slowly I think.
    2. It would be cool if the UFX effects didn't overwrite any of the official kX effects. As far as I can tell, only the Surrounder effect gets overwritten, but as a rule I think the UFX effects should be separate (maybe even in their own menu category in the effects list if that is possible)

    1. Well, surrounder shipped with driver is written on the base of ufx one and for now only "graphics" differs.

    2. What for?

    3. Which web site?

    4. Why cool?

    The reason for replacement is simple - personally, i don't want to load and connect ufx's surrounder and eq manually (it's about 20 mouse clicks) each time i reset dsp settings or install new driver version...
    Anyway, you can always turn off ufx replacements via registry
    (replace "kxufx.kxl" with "kxfxlib.kxl" at "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\kX\Plugins")
    (To cancel all of replacements simply double-click on "kxfxlib.kxl" file)

    1, 2 & 4. If the kX Surrounder or other replaced effects ever differ from the UFX one, replacing would be a bad thing because it would mean that using UFX would require giving up the ability to use the official versions of the replaced effects. I understand what you mean about reconnecting things though ;)

    3. I worked backwards from the download URL that I saw here somewhere: http://kxdev.narod.ru/ufx/index.html
    The page that is missing is plugins.html. Whoa, I just went back there and when I reloaded the page I got a 404 error! Did the site move?

    I also forgot to mention that I like the graphics that the UFX effects use on the DSP window and in the tweak menus, and I also like the reverb effect a LOT.

    1, 2, 4. :) The word "Official" sounds strange here. I, as the author of both, don't see any problem here... Anyway, if you feel better with one shipped with driver package you can get it back (as i wrote above).

    3. http://kxdev.narod.ru/ufx/index.html - ? I never heard of such, sorry.

    Strange. Is there an official site and/or download URL?

    you won't belive me, Max, but I saw that page, too -- it was available via 'google' or 'yandex' search engine :)
    some kxdev secrets?

    Mono Version Request

    Max can you please compile a mono version of the EQ P5? just to free some gpr registers?
    And, if you have time, an "only" stereo Reverb R?

    thanks a lot in advance

    bye

    Well, let's think... yep, maybe it could make sence...
    although mono version of EQ will use ~75% of resources comparing to stereo one (not 50%)...
    Heh, the only disadvantage i can see here is that menu of effects will look weird (imagine "EQP5", "EQP5 (Mono)", "EQG10", "EQG10 (Mono)" :) But who cares... Ok, then...

    >an "only" stereo Reverb R?

    You mean to remove 2 additional outputs (e.g. "quadro ones")?
    This will save only two intructions and just two registers...

    thanks a lot!:D
    In my opinion every gpr reg worth gold!
    even some Waves plug-ins have their mono version!

    WOW!

    I was really missing something! I knew that there was a party going on, but...
    I was unable to try these things until now (was in 3535).
    Last night was the night.

    So, CONGRATULATIONS to MAX and all the contributers, testers,..

    Where do I start?
    The GUI is most impressive, very "design". (everybody's jaw must dropped too at the first "tweak" or "double-click")
    The knobs and sliders are great but it's the little slots for the wiring that really turned my crank. Nice.
    Of course the VU meters are great, the fine markings and subtle colors give them a real precision look.
    The EQ Graph is really nice too.
    10/10! Full notes everywhere.

    The presets are great. They deliver exactly what their names say.
    Having a few well-balanced presets always helps getting good results fast.
    The EQ and REVERB give a lot of warmth and realism (using acoustic and electric guitars).
    This is professional equipment.

    Any more of these babies and I will run out of resources fast!
    I guess I have to get a 10k2 now eh?
    (no, it's ordered).

    BRAVO!

    Cheers,
    Paul.
