Nova-67P: 88.2/96 or higher sample rates related update (Mac/Windows)

Nova-67P v1.0.2 update

Fixed a bug with UI freeze when working on 88.2/96 or greater sample rates:


Please report me your experience about this fix.


Nice video about DIY mastering

the video is pretty long 🙂

Nice picture and no comments

VoS + TDR = ?


What can I add for this? First, it is a great pleasure to work with these guys. Next, we have a project to be released very soon. And we’re going to release 64-bit version for it. And we’re going to release Mac version too. And… Okay, no more information for today.



Molot denormalization problems: solved (and also Mac OS X 10.5 support)

Q: What  is denormalization?
A: In short, when the sound doesn’t play, the plugin starts to use  several times more CPU power. It’s related with processing of very small numbers very very close to zero (less than -600 dBFS).

Q: Molot 0.3 didn’t have such problems, so why they were added to version 0.3.1?
A: This bug is related with combination of new limiter code and auto-off feature.

Q: What is auto-off feature?
A: When there’s no input signal, the signal processing code is bypassed. If it happens, version string on GUI becomes gray.


Windows version is updated under the same download link:


EDIT: Mac version is updated too (and also support for Mac OS X 10.5 restored):


PS. Reaper performance meter is a good tool to detect such problems!

And also thanks to Theo Niessink! EDIT: And Marc Abram too.

PPS. Also I found the same problem in Proximity plugin. Update shall come soon!

Molot 0.3.1 and Limiter №6 1.0.2 with AU support were released

What’s new in Molot 0.3.1:

  • Output and editing of numeric parameter values. (Editing not implemented in 32-bit AU version)
  • Fixed wrong mode in some presets.
  • Fixed filter used in linear phase oversampling mode.
  • Added “dithering off” option.
  • Fixed working with VstToRTAS.
  • Added AU version.
  • Added support for 10 times attack time scaling.
  • Changed limiter code (based on Limiter No6)


What’s new in Limiter №6 1.0.2:

  • Less intensive animation (to save CPU cycles);
  • Stereo-linked mode in peak-limiter was significantly improved;
  • Numeric parameter values now editable (excluding 32-bit AU version);
  • Modes I-III of peak limiter were slightly changed;
  • AU version added


AU version release notes:

  • To refresh DAW latency compensation when plugin latency is changed, audio must be restarted (stop/start);
  • Limiter №6 changes its latency in “Min.latency” mode;
  • Molot changes its latency when switched between “HQ” and “Fast” oversampling modes.


Molot v0.3.1 Windows/Mac (VST/AU) latest preview

What’s new?

  • new limiter based on Limiter No6 one;
  • editable numeric parameter values;
  • bug fixes including Vst2RTAS wrapper compatibility fixes;
  • 32/64-bit AU version.

Windows versions (32/64-bit, GUI and GUI-less and also 2-channels version):


Mac versions (32/64-bit, VST and AU):



Limiter №6 v1.0.2 Windows/Mac (VST/AU) latest preview

So finally, what’s new in version 1.0.2?

  • New stereo-linking in peak limiter significantly reduced distortions;
  • Numeric parameter values now editable;
  • Less intensive animations to reduce CPU usage;
  • Subtle changes in peak limiter Type I-III modes.

Windows version (32/64-bit, both GUI included):


Mac versions (32/64-bit, VST/AU):


AU version release notes:

  • in “Min. latency” mode to refresh host latency compensation you must stop then start playback;
  • if you manually enter numeric parameter value, you should click somewhere on plugin background instead of pressing “enter” key.

PS. I want to give more tests for this version, then release it!


Yes, it’s a shame for me but new version of Molot with AU support is still uncompleted

New Molot version was mentioned in September’12:


But next, it was KVR Developer Challenge 2012 and this Proximity plugin:


And next, I was busy for some unexpected reasons! And after that there were holidays! They are over and now I’m thinking what I should do the next…

By the way, for AU version please check this excellent video by Vanessa Leinani for VSTAU wrapping of Molot:


I want to release new version of Molot at the end of January. For now I’m thinking about replacement of Molot peak limiter to one from Limiter №6…

About Limiter №6. For some reasons, no one mention to me that stereo linking in peak-limiter module of Limiter №6 is not working at all!!! Thanks to Alexey Lukin for noticing that. The fix is ready and I after some stability tests I’m going to release it in a very very short period of time!

These are my short-term plans. My long-term plans are to make something in collaboration with Tokyo Dawn Labs in this year and also to make some new plugin of course! Yeah!
