thought i would post this here
heres something from the thread at kvr
As I don’t have time to maintain or develop the “mda” freeware plug-ins any more, but I don’t want them to die when 32-bit VST 2.x plug-ins are finally obsolete, I have released the source code:
If anyone wants to find and fix bugs, or tidy up the sources into a more generic future-proof format, that would be great. If not, the code is all there and working so for example it would be easy to build 64-bit versions.
It might also be interesting to see how the plug-ins work - maybe they are simpler than you’d expect, as back when these were written every additional line of code had an effect on the CPU meter!
