There are 2 ways to achieve external stereo sidechaining in VST plugins:
- Use VST3 format.
- Use 4 inputs (1, 2 for signal and 3, 4 for sidechain) and DAW that supports 4 inputs routing (Reaper for example).
My choise for Molot 0.3 is #2. If you select external sidechaining in GUI it looks something like this:
But if your DAW doesn’t support 4 inputs, this is the version of Molot 0.3 with 2 inputs and disabled external sidechaining support:
[Molot 0.3: 2 channels version (VST, Windows 32-bit, 64-bit)]
What’s new? In short:
- External stereo sidechaining support (inputs 3 and 4).
- Linear phase oversampling support (latency 344 samples).
See more details on [Molot] compressor page.
PS. Yes, I know this GUI for extended parameters doesn’t look so good. It will be changed to more usable one in the next release.
