Tried it out.
Looks nice, but it introduced a very noticable delay in note triggering for me.
I am using very high bpm’s though so your mileage may vary.
The same thing happens with a few other decent vst effects, rendering them useless to me.
Sorry mate, didn’t mean to sound rude. It is something to take into account though, that when something is advertised as being a Mastering Effect (EQ, Compressor/Limiter etd) then it is likely to have a high latency as this isn’t not very important for mastering, as you are only working on one track so can not get discrepancies between parts, nor are people playing in live which is the other time latency is important.
As these things do not need to be considered a lot more can go into trying to get yor effect soundig just how you like, without compromise.
They are also often very processor hungry, as you will only have a few effects in the chain (EQ, Multiband Compressor and Limiter being fairly typical.)
