Molot Compressor VST Mac OS X version (TEST ONLY)

Hi there!

I spent a couple of evenings to try to compile Molot VST on Mac.

The result is the OS X version of VST plugin that you can try to use but I don’t promise you this version 100% working.

Current issues:

  1. There’s 32-bit version only (x86 and PowerPC platforms). I had problems to compile VSTGUI for 64-bit version.
  2. Checked only for Reaper as VST host both x86 and PowerPC versions.
  3. There’s no my favorite EN/RU switch. I had problems with VSTGUI for dynamic changes of transparent layer with english “paper sticks”.

[download 0.2.145 (32-bit, VST, Mac OS X)]

Feel free to write what do you think about this version in comments. Any help is appreciated.

Molot compressor updated to 0.2.145

New version available in download page. What’s new:

  • New upsampling code: latency now 2 samples
  • Faster limiter release
  • Fixed bug with preset names changing

Новая версия доступна на странице загрузки. Что нового:

Новый алгоритм передискретизации: задержка теперь 2 отсчета
Уменьшено время релиза лимитера
Исправлена ошибка с изменением имен пресетов

I used previous version of Molot in some projects and I think the limiter was too soft and too slow. As the main idea for limiter in Molot is to control peaks in sigma mode I changed limiter settings to more aggressive.

Also I have a lot of fun pictures for new post about some experiments with different upsampling algorithms (step, linear, polynomial, sinc function). It’ll come soon.
