    Hi there,

    Ive tried your MOLOT plugin in Logic, but when i move my channel in its whole the compressor shuts off and i have to reset the preset and change the parameters again. This is a serious bug i hope you can make some time to look in to that.

    Keep me posted at sinosonis@live.com
    Kind regards,
    Boy Kortman

    Greetings from the US! I produce audio for Radio & TV ads and came across your MOLOT plugin. I’ve only played with it for a short time, but it sounds fantastic! I love the GUI. I, too, am a fan of old equipment. Nice job! and thanks for offering this great plug!

      Hello, I am new to this and I don’t know how to install the free vst plugins to my reaper daw.
      I think I am doing it correct. I push the PC window button of the free plugin I want and it downloads and then I click on it and it wants to be saved in my down loads. When I copy it from my downloads into my VST folder it wont got there. Do you know what I am doing wrong?
      Please help

    Hi can I use the Molot like de esser?
    How can I make parametrs in Molot to this?

    • vladgsound 2012/01/19 at 01:33

      Hi! I tried to use Molot as de-esser but it worked very bad. It’s too slow and doesn’t have lookahead. It’s too “visible” (antipode to “invisible” compressors). So I think such kind of compressor doesn’t suit well for de-essing.

  8. JP 2012/03/24 at 20:10

    Thanks for all,
    I try the compressor/limiter6 for my new song and it’s a very good work

    Merci de France

        Hey Vlad Reaper users are clammig to sky for some programmer who can do some new (and cool) skin for the Reaper`s secuencer Megababy.Can you try something…?I know you have the Talent…

        Many Thanks.

    • Turon Thomas 2015/09/29 at 04:34

      Yeah keep them coming I just got 3 of them today and I just did a TEST on my Master fader which I don’t do while creating my beats, and it was dope as hell. One question though why do I have to install them each day I use studio one pro can you help? Thanks

  10. Viktor 2012/04/08 at 13:07

    I like your philosophy of creating something different and not mimicing what’s already existing, keep up the goog work!

    I tried to use Molot with Adobe Audition CS5.5 32bit on Win7 and Audition does see Molot, but I can’t add it to the effect rack. It’s always greyed out and thus not selectable. What am I doing wrong? Does Molot work with Audition?

    Molot VST 2 channel 0.3 version works within Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5.2 on a PC *(64 bit version). I used 2 instances and some creative sending / Audio Submix tracks to enable stereo external sidechain compression. Very useful for ducking some music underneath a voiceover. Thank you so much!!! 🙂 I used it for a cooking video I made last weekend. http://geoffmobile.com/blog/how-to-make-creamy-mashed-potatoes-with-coconut-milk-instead-of-milk

  12. Geoff Peters (@gpeters) 2012/04/12 at 11:05

    Hi, the Molot 2 channel 0.3 version (64 bit vst) works with Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5. Thank you so much!!!

    I was searching for hours on how to get an external sidechain working in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5.2. The 4 channel version didn’t work, but the 2 channel version worked. I implemented External sidechaining in my video project sequence using Molot and it worked great. I used some clever sending between Audio Submix tracks in Premiere and two different Molot instances to allow my sidechaing to be performed on a Stereo music track.

    The effect is that when I talk in my video, the music automatically ducks down a few DB, and that makes the background music not interfere with the voiceover. I used 2 instances of the “64 bit 2 channels Molot 0.3 version” VST plugin in the “mono mode with external side chain signal” mode.

    To see my example, feel free to watch my cooking video which I used this sidechaining technique in my Adobe Premiere Pro sequence: http://geoffmobile.com/blog/how-to-make-creamy-mashed-potatoes-with-coconut-milk-instead-of-milk

    I will be posting an example Premiere project with my Molot settings to my blog soon.

    Thanks again, the compressor and sidechain works great!

    Thanks a lot for the Molot ! – Great bit of kit – interesting tonal shaping with the m/s – Splendid !

    Hi Vladislav,

    I am contacting you from Plugin Boutique(.com) and I have a proposition to pass your way. Please feel free to email me on gareth@pluginboutique.com, It would be great to speak with you!

    Kind Regards,

      Great Compressor Man! Only wish the controls were in English! No big deal but it takes some time to remember.

      Sounds like a Fairchild 670 or a Manley VariMu. Nice Job!

    Hi Vlad,
    thank you for your absolute professional tool! It´s one of my favourite daily plugin. Molot sounds this year on Eurovision Song Contest Baku, Euro 2012(Donezk/Charkiw) and London Olympic Games – hosted on SSL Mixer V6 (MX4 Madi) and Reaper combined with Lawo Desks.
    Thanks for your work: makes live easier for us frontliners

    Great plugins. I would like text fields for exact values ​​read and write. Like Waves plugins. That would be nice.

  19. Heath Rose 2012/11/26 at 22:25

    HI Vlad,

    Fantastic plugin! I love the sound of the limiter!!

    I am using it on Mac Os X with Reaper and it does run a bit slow (the GUI and my whole reaper daw GUI slows down quite a bit)… any thoughts on this?

    Does sound great– it is just hard to make changes as the DAW slows down so much…

    Great work! Great Plugins!

    Thank you.

    • vladgsound 2012/11/26 at 22:28

      Thanks! Do you use GUI#1 or GUI#2? And also do you use version 1.0 or version 1.0.1 (the version number is written in the top right corner of the window)?

      • Heath Rose 2012/11/26 at 22:37

        I have tried both versions of the GUI with same result (I am now back to No. 2 — as it “looks” like it would be less of a CPU draw — I do love the look of your GUI No.1 –fantastic!)

        I am using 1.0.1.

        Interesting note that when I close the UI — everything is fine. Or if I click the UI button in the reaper FX window– slowness goes away (although limiter plugin is running and working fine). It seems that it is literally the UI interface being rendered in real time, that is causing the slowness?

        Let me know what you think.

      • vladgsound 2012/11/26 at 22:39

        Thanks for information! Can you give me some info about your Mac and Mac OS?

      • Heath Rose 2012/11/26 at 22:55

        Latest Reaper install v 4.31

      • Heath Rose 2012/11/29 at 03:33

        Would also add that I am using the Molot as well and it works perfectly– no slowness on GUI.
        Both plugins sound great– let me know if you figure-out anything about the slowness with Limiter No. 6.

        Regardless, the sound is great.

        Nice work Vlad!

    • Heath 2013/08/03 at 23:41

      Hi Vlad,

      Just tried Version 1.02 — and it totally fixed the above problem.

      Nice work!

      I use your Limiter No.6 on everything. It is sounds fantastic.

    Which version of VST is this plugin?

  22. Garry 2013/01/08 at 13:02

    Hey Vladislav,

    I was wondering to learn whether or not your Limiter No6 plugin truly support a 64 bit Logic on Mac ? It appears so that Logic won’t recognize it per launch. Any ideas on how to fix that – please advise.

    Cheers )

    • vladgsound 2013/01/08 at 16:11

      Hi! Logic is not supported yet. I’m working on AU version of plugin. Also you can try any VST->AU wrapper but there’re no guarantees at all…

  23. Kevin 2013/01/27 at 00:27

    When are the AU versions of Limiter no6 and Molot coming out??… I’m DYING for it!

  24. RG 2013/02/24 at 02:35

    Vlad? your limiter and compressor are very cool, especially limiter. Thanks

  25. Миша 2013/03/11 at 18:12

    Влад! Спасибо за плагины! Надеюсь, буду пользоваться долго. Кстати, удивительно, но о твоих плагинах мне рассказал английский коллега:)

  26. Андрей 2013/03/27 at 12:42

    Влад, спасибо огромное за плагины. Посмотрев видео очень захотелось попробовать в своих проэктах proximiti, только мануал на русском не нашёл на Вашем сайте))) Подскажите если существует такой мануал?

    • vladgsound 2013/03/27 at 13:04

      Proximity я на русский не переводил. Попробую подготовить перевод – там вроде небольшой документ был.

    Vlad hi mate, greetings from Australia. I’m eager to use the limiter no6, it comes highly recommended. However I have followed the install instructions step by step several times but the plugin doesn’t appear in my insert list. I use Pro tools 9 on an iMac OSX Mountain Lion. Is there something else I need to do?
    Cheers Antonio

    Добрый день. Меня зовут Олег Ершов. Я один из авторов сайта MusicManuals.ru. На этой неделе я делал обзор микса в стиле хардкор с использованием вашего плагина Молот. Очень впечатлил. http://musicmanuals.ru/nashi-relizyi/videouroki/anatomiya-miksa/svedenie-miksa-v-stile-xardkor-na-primere-pesni-hollow-ground-ill-fate.html Я бы хотел предложить вам сотрудничество. Свяжитесь со мной по электронной почте и обсудим все вопросы.

  31. Rod L. Short 2013/05/18 at 20:59

    Your plugs are awesome! I do have a question for you.
    Everything works great in my Sonar X2 32 bit but, your plugs do not show up in my Sonar X2 64 b it. I put your 64 bit dll’s in my 64 bit vst folder, which is scanned by the plugin manager. All of the other 64 bit plugs in that folder show up, just not any of yours. Any thoughts?

  32. Clint Martin 2013/06/08 at 00:39

    They all work fine in my 64 bit Sonar X2. Go to C:/program files, double click cakewalk, open vst folder, create a new folder named vladg sound or whatever. Drop the dll files here then re-scan your vsts in Sonar. That will work.

    • vladgsound 2013/06/08 at 02:25

      Thanks Clint for help! I’m busy a lot and just didn’t try to reproduce it yet. But I think I tried to reproduce 64-bit Sonar problem some (a long) time ago and just forgot results 🙂 It’s time to start making some kind of knowledge base for problems and solutions 🙂

  33. Clint Martin 2013/06/08 at 07:25

    Glad to help. I hope it does actually help. If Rod writes back I’ll try to help with Sonar X2 if I can.

  34. Алексей 2013/06/13 at 17:59

    Добрый день, Владислав.
    Нет ли у Вас планов портирования этих замечательных плагинов под другие платформы?
    Меня интересуют, прежде всего, Proximity и возможность портирования под платформу Reason Rack Extension (http://shop.propellerheads.se/).
    С удовольствием бы купил ваши приборы.
    С уважением, Алексей

    • vladgsound 2013/06/14 at 23:02

      Здравствуйте! К концу лета хотел заняться RTAS и одновременно Reason Rack Extension.

  35. UserFX 2013/06/15 at 17:14

    Hi Vlad, what’s up with that? Everybody in the Reason forums is wondering whether you’ve got any part or affiliation with it other than it is obviously based on Molot.

    Check the link:

    From the description in the link:
    “C1-L1 developed on the basis of «МОЛОТ» compressor
    Vladislav Goncharov

    • vladgsound 2013/06/15 at 23:18

      It is actually based on Molot sound engine. And I’m not author of this project. BTW, I have plans to make Proximity port as RE, but I didn’t have plans about Molot as RE.

      • UserFX 2013/06/17 at 23:56

        Does that mean that you are involved with this RE and gave him parts of Molots code?

        Or does “based on Molot sound engine” mean that the RE’s creator tried to create a Molot-sounding compressor “by ear”, that is by listening to Molot and trying to emulate its sound?

  36. UserFX 2013/06/17 at 23:59

    And concerning your own RE:

    Why don’t you want to port Molot which I think would make a lot of people very happy as you know it’s a very much loved compressor and using it in Reason directly would be wonderful!

  37. Magpie 2013/08/01 at 17:54

    hi, great plugin! I can’t get this to work with adobe premiere cs 6. need it for ducking. only ducking effect i can find online! i can see it in the plugin list in audio effects. but it won’t drag onto timeline nor show up in the realtime effects in the mixer. please advise!

  38. Danny 2013/08/11 at 02:04

    LOVE IT!!!! This limiter rules.

    Есть ли планы портирование на Linux. LV2 , VST/

  41. Sonic Supreme 2013/09/13 at 05:34

    Vlad greetings from the USA! Much respect on Molot and LimterNo6!
    Just wanted to ask you it says in LIMTR NO6 manual that u can oversample4x with the “Peak Limiter” section…I see 4xoversample option in the Clipper section but not with the Peak Limiter. Where exactly is the that option with the Peak Limiter?

    Remarkable Plug-ins and the fact that your giving it away is a blessing to those that find this! Peace brotha 🙂

  42. alex 2013/09/18 at 05:15

    just amazing limiter 6

  43. Mystovski 2013/09/20 at 21:27

    Thank you for the Molot and the Limiter6, Sir! Molot is a good sounding compressor but what I’m impressed with most is the Limiter. Really great all-rounder packed with features. I use it for postproduction of my upcoming album and I’m sure that I will use more and more in next projects! Cheers!

  44. Gianlorenzo 2013/10/25 at 21:36

    HI, I have a problem with all your plug-in. I have logic 9 and I have installed Limiter6, Molot and also the one that you made with Tokyo Dawn Records (Proximity). The Audio Units Manager of Logic says that the plug-in are ‘successfully validated’ but when I go in channel strip and I search the plug-in I don’t find them.

  45. Noah 2013/10/29 at 22:07

    Hey I want to try this plugin but when I download the latest version of Molot it only provides the vst not AU version. Even though the link says VST/AU. Any help would be great. Thanks.

  46. alexander 2014/01/04 at 23:02

    not work on Logic Pro X, please help me and support…

  47. Andre Sobota 2014/01/26 at 18:14

    Hey, thanks for the awesome limiters… L6 interface is not working on Ableton Live any way to fix this?

  48. Дмитрий 2014/02/16 at 04:27

    Уважаемый Влад! Пробовал ваши приборы Молот и Лимитер6. Пока правда только в наушниках(ибо только что скачал)), в ближайшее время попробую отмастерить пару вещей. Но в принципе уже сейчас могу сказать спасибо! Приборы достаточно корректные! На вскидку сравнивал Молот с вейвсовским Н-Сomp, ваши алгоритмы показались более человеческими. Впечатлил потенциал Молота в качестве компрессора для барабанов, но к сожалению с треками работаю в ПТ (мастерю в Вейвлабе) и конечно ну очень хотелось бы увидеть ртас версии.. Ещё раз спасибо!, не ожидал, что у нас есть умельцы в этой области.
    Успехов вам!

  49. Александр 2014/02/17 at 13:23


    Опробовал вчера ваш Молот и остался доволен. Большое спасибо!

    С уважением,

  52. Shaun 2014/04/13 at 19:22

    love this stuff one problem can’t get the GUI on the Molot using logic X help please have downloaded many times but still just apple controls? this is ace stuff put limiter [cocoa view } over a mp3 in logic it lifted me off my seat

  53. Major Edition 2014/04/18 at 11:01

    Hello Vladgsound,

    I know you don’t model your plug-ins after hardware/analogue gear so the following is just info and tools for research purpose, only for plugin developers, if you are interested. Have fun, enjoy:



    Best regards.

  54. Gene 2014/06/06 at 07:15

    The “manual” links appear not to work. My browser couldn’t find the page.

  55. Jure Gabršček 2014/06/18 at 19:08

    Hey there, I do enjoy your collaboration with fabien and herbert don’t get me wrong, and I can see how its more productive and less stressful for you to work in a team, but will you release any plugins under your name again someday?
    The thing is for as much as I love slickeq and even feedback compressor I kinda miss your GUI designs and your plugins workflow. Like how is it all manual and you have this extremely detailed control. You really get that pseudo feeling your dealing with something from the past and you instantly have more respect towards it when using.
    Once again, don’t get me wrong, slickeq sounds smooth as fuck when boosting the highs:), I just don’t enjoy using it as much as molot.


    • vladgsound 2014/06/18 at 20:25

      Thanks a lot for your question! Actually I hate doing GUI-related stuff. The main reason to start collaboration was to offload tasks like UI, documentation, PR and so on to another people and to concentrate on sound. Yeah, I’d love too to have military-style SlickEQ version and I’m sure it’s possible in some future but right now I don’t have the right designer to do this job. About my personal project, I think it is interesting to know I’m preparing my submission to KVR DC’14 to the end of July.

      • Jure Gabršček 2014/06/19 at 00:13

        That’s what I wanted to hear, you being in DC14. Nice, I hope you’ll make it to Boston or wherever the winner goes.
        “Actually I hate doing GUI-related stuff.” What an irony, I think molot is one of the best looking plugs freeware or payware wise, and it didn’t age one bit.
        I would love to help you with GUIs but I fear my 3D modelling skills are a bit rusty. But as an engineer/industrial design geek fascinated with vintage stuff that I am, it would dream come true. And on a downside I am not Russian so it wouldn’t feel right, although I am slavic:) So if you’ll need shitty looking GUI you can call me anyday.

        Good luck with DC.

    • Jure Gabršček 2014/06/19 at 00:44

      I just re-read your post about molot GUI creation.You actually made bunch of pictures to animate knobs.Clever. I would be totally willing to help you with a project like that.

  56. Erik Løvaas 2014/08/13 at 14:46

    Get some good graphics on that new EQ plugin (in an update or something) and you’ve got THE free EQ plugin.

  57. Derek Vincent 2014/08/16 at 07:56

    Dynamic EQ

    In split band mode can you add separate compressor ratio/attack/release for each band? I need more control.

    Maybe this will be in the paid release… name it Super Nova..

    Thanks Derek

  59. Mads 2014/09/09 at 18:39

    Enjoying Nova, but it seems to crash instantly using it as a track plugin in Wavelab (Windows version 1.0.3).
    Any idea why, any fix maybe?

    • vladgsound 2014/09/09 at 21:33

      Maybe it’s because the plugin has 4 inputs (second pair for external sidechaining). I’ll try to reproduce it. Which version of Wavelab do you use?

  60. Mads 2014/09/09 at 22:10

    Thank you!
    Wavelab 8.0.3 (build 698) – 32 bit. Seems to work fine on Mastersection, but as track plugin (and I guess clip plugin) things go wrong.

  61. Olymoon 2014/09/10 at 20:22

    Thank you Very much Vlad. Imho, you deserved the first prize at KVR, as your plugins are extremely high quality, and they are ALL free, witch is far to be the case with Acon Digital.
    Thanks you.

  62. Mads 2014/09/11 at 02:21

    Vlad, Have you had time to test Nova with Wavelab yet?
    (don’t want to push, but hope to get the issue solved)

  63. Kai Brown 2014/10/23 at 17:23

    Hey vladgsound!

    Just wanted to tell you that your limiter saved my mix. No matter what I was trying with any kind of compressor, I’ve always had problems in getting enough volume to the sound without blasting. I don’t have a limiter and as typical for a not so well known musician and composer I don’t have the salary to buy high quality limiter plugins since my recording program and synthesizers made me poor. So I’ve tried several limiters, nothing could really give me the results I wanted (extreme volume and power with a clear sound). But yours gave me the best sound I’ve ever had. Just thank you for granting this great product for free!

    Great plugins. How can I get in contact with you directly please?

  65. JG 2014/11/25 at 22:19

    Vlad Hi! If I have 2 Molot plug-ins in my mastering chain (one doing Full stereo minimal compression and the other doing Mid only) what do you recommend as far as the internal dither settings in preferences on both? I currently have them both set to high. This thing is awesome btw!

    • vladgsound 2014/11/29 at 20:26

      Hi! For mastering I usually set Dither to off, Upsampling to HQ, Limiter to Off and Saturation to Off. It’s the cleanest possible configuration. The “high” dither level is 20-bit so theoretically it shouldn’t harm your 16-bit output dithering.

  66. Luca Pretolesi 2014/11/26 at 22:17

    Hi there, this is luca pretolesi here, I want to talk to you, I’m looking for your email, where I can contact you?

    Влад, огромное спасибо, за потрясающие Молот и Лимитер №6. Они классные, гибкие и харАктерные. С ними приятно работать.

    Храни Вас Бог, желаю Вам стать круче Стивена Слейта и всей фирменной братии.

  68. iTEHb 2014/12/02 at 12:05

    Здравствуйте. Когда работал в Лоджике ваши компрессор и лимитер очень нравились, после перехода на Pro Tools постоянно вспоминаю 2 этих плагина… RTAS или AAX версии будут? очень бы хотелось иметь их в арсенале. Спасибо вам за труды и за щедрость.

  69. Lauro Ferrarini 2014/12/02 at 18:04

    Hi Vlad,
    Thank you for this GREAT plugin… on my Mac…
    But on my Windows PC it failed the examination: daw is Digital Performer 8.07.
    I hope you can help
    Best Regards


  70. blow 2014/12/12 at 06:04

    Hi Vlad,
    I downloaded molot recently but the GUI doesn’t show up.
    I tested all versions but it didn’t show up on any of them.
    Also I tested it on several DAW software but it worked on none of them.
    But without the GUI it works perfectly, and the GUI of the plugins you made with Tokyo dawn labs work perfectly too. It’s just molot, limiter No6, and NOVA-67p that doesn’t work on my computer.
    Do you have any idea on how i can fix this problem?
    I really like the GUI of your plugins and I really want to use them.

  71. emprock 2015/01/04 at 04:46


    Molot x32 & x64 failed to load on Samplitude Pro X Silver. It caused built in VST bridge to stop working.

    Hope to have a chance to try this plugin.

    Best wishes.

  72. renkos 2015/01/13 at 22:02

    влад спасибо за плагины

  73. Ganax 2015/01/19 at 01:26

    Hello Vlad
    I’ve beenn using your molot for few years and I’m really glad to it.
    Since version 0. 3.1b, the plug only works under in m/s mode in midscoop.
    Il only happens with Cubase and Reape (both 64bit) and it works perfectly fine with Sony movie Studio (64 bit either)
    Any clue?
    thanks for your help

  74. Timothy Henderson 2015/02/13 at 00:32

    Hi vladg,

    I have heard that you are very talented at making great plugins. I would like to know where you learned how to program plugins. Any source is fine. I would very much like to get into programming AU/VST plugins.

  75. W.R. 2015/02/28 at 04:25

    I would like to donate some money for Nova67P. Could you install a “DONATE” button on your page?

    Greetz from Munich / Germany

  76. hcbuschmann 2015/04/01 at 15:21

    Please make it work with pro tools 11 (AAX)!

  77. Gavino Rodriguez 2015/04/15 at 03:27

    I tried downloading your Limiter N°6 and Molot and there was no set up program in the zip files

  78. jack 2015/04/20 at 07:40

    same issue as gavino for me.

  79. Russell 2015/05/30 at 15:43

    Hi Vlad,

    how do I use Limiter 6 in protools 12?

    I have copied the dllx64 to vst plugins folder, but can’t find limiter 6 in protools dynamics.

    Thanks !


  80. brainsford 2015/07/11 at 15:01

    hi, great work, thank you very much! limiter6 is working great on my songs, i will leave a dedication on the demo-album 😉 only thing is: in the manual you mention a threshold for the compressor? but there´s none? or am I blind… or is it what I guess, the manual for an older/newer version? greetings from germany! brainsford

  81. miraclelearn 2015/08/11 at 09:34

    Hi Vlad,
    I am a great fan of your plugins. Molot is my ‘go to’ compressor & I find it much better than many other ‘Big Brand’ plugin compressors. Nova-67P & LimiterNo6 are great too. Your choice of using 64bitFloatingPoint internal precision, shows your ability to “distinguish good sounds”. (I’ve myself always observed 64bit precision plugins to sound deeper). I wish SlickEQ had 64bitFP precision (it sounds great even now).
    Thanks for the great work.
    Deepak Chandel.

    • vladgsound 2015/08/25 at 12:23

      I coded all DSP parts of SlickEQ so I can say it uses 64-bit internal processing precision in all processing branches. But it has 32-bit floating point inputs and outputs (due to JUCE library restriction) so the output signal is truncated to 32-bit format.

  82. John Finney 2015/08/24 at 01:12

    I am writing a small tutorial on using these plug-ins in Sound Forge. I noticed that when I create a chain of all three plug-ins, when I select a preset in SlickEq or in Molot, the preset is re-named on the other plugins, even in their individual preset menus. So, if I set SlickEQ for Mastering1, then when I select a preset in Molot of “premaster”, the SlickEq’s Mastering1 preset changes to “premaster” also, and then SlickEQ no longer has Mastering1 in it’s list of presets. It has renamed it’s Maser1 to “premaster”. Is this happening to others too? IS there a work-around? I do love these plug-ins! Thank you!!

    • vladgsound 2015/08/25 at 12:21

      Hi John. It’s really strange because SlickEQ and Molot have absolutely different codebase and from my point of view it’s impossible to “share” this change between these plugins. But I can check this problem. Which version of Sound Forge to you use?

  83. Rob 2015/09/04 at 01:11

    Hi Vlad. Are you working on any audio plugins at the moment? I love Limiter No6 and the TDR stuff.

  84. Bill 2015/09/04 at 23:37

    Vlad. Thanks for these very very useable plugins, the best I’ve used..they really improve the mix a great deal. Thanks again..Bill (I heard about these from Gene Katsuro on youtube)

  85. Андрей Маркевич 2015/09/08 at 00:28

    Приветствую вас, Владислав! Низкий поклон вам за Nova67P. Много лет я искал вменяемый динамический эквалайзер, который бы можно было использовать в качестве многополосного компрессора с возможностью полключения внешнего сайд-чейна и был несказанно рад, встретив ваш (бесплатный!) плагин!

    То, что я напишу ниже, никоим образом не умаляет моего восхищения вашей работой, просто у меня возникла некоторая “непонятка.” Результаты, о которых напишу ниже, я получал прогоном розового шума через ваш плаг на спектроанализатор.

    Вот смотрите:

    Включаем только один фильтр в режим, скажем, High-shelf Fixed, ставим на 1кГц и опускаем, скажем, на 9 дБ. Получаем кривую 1 – классическую полку, имеющую центральную точку симметрии на уровне 1 кГц (как и предполагалось).

    Теперь переключаем фильтр в режим Low shelf Fixed, возвращаем его уровень на 0 дБ,
    а на 9 дБ опускаем общий уровень, т.е. “остаток”. Получаем кривую 2. Такую же, как 1, но смещенную вправо, с центром уже на 1.3 кГц. Это интуитивно нелогично, но объяснимо, т.к. фильтрация все-таки параллельная.

    Но идем дальше! Включаем тот же фильтр в снова в режим High-shelf, но теперь Dyn:splitband и опускаем теперь не уровень, а трэшхолд так, чтобы “полка” ушла на -9 дБ. Получаем кривую 3! Она смещена влево (центр на 770 Гц). Вот это уже необъяснимо (для меня!)) Почему для статики и динамики получается разная кривая?

    Ну и наконец делаем такую же динамическую полку, переключив фильтр в режим Low shelf Dyn:splitband и опустив трэшхолд “остатка”… А тут действительно получаем снова кривую 2 (т.е. в этом случае статика и динамика совпадают)!

    Объясните, пожалуйста, почему так получается? Или это все-таки ошибка математики?

    Заранее большое спасибо за ответ!

  86. Andrea Fumelli 2015/10/21 at 19:41

    I love your plug-ins, Molot and Limiter n.6 are always there on my mix buss.
    Greetings from Italy

  87. Tony Ollivierra 2015/10/23 at 05:17

    Hello, I really like the Molot and Limiter no 6. However I cannot download Limiter no 6 gui 2 for mac. When I click the link it does nothing. Thanks.

  88. Alex 2015/10/23 at 15:02

    Hi. It is not possible to download Limiter No 6 for OSX. Can you fix it?

  89. Bobesh 2015/10/29 at 00:15

    Hi, is it possible to make release from 30ms in Molot? Thank you.

  90. Bernardo Jimenez 2015/11/11 at 06:08

    Hello. I record and produce for Vox Humana (label). I´m a big fan of your compressor and limiter and use them on a daily basis. We just wanted to say thanks, we are starting to contact the brands and makers of audio stuff that we use to give them the credit that they deserve,

  91. miraclelearn 2015/11/18 at 17:15

    Hi Vlad,
    Just downloaded TDR Nova plugin & tried it. I was so disapointed to see that such a great plugin did not sound as good as it is actually programmed to! I love Nova67p, it sounds amazing!!!. The TDRNova does not sound as good as Nova67p. Try it yourself, process some audio with the 2 plugins (same settings) and A/B compare, you will hear the diffference (The difference is more audible if you use a daw with 64bit double precision audio engine, I use Sonar). I guess this 32bit input & output restriction of the the juce library is negatively affecting the quality of your superb 64bit-precision code!!!

  92. Ty 2015/12/22 at 20:54

    Hello, I am running an old protool LE 8. I was interested in trying the Limiter no6. I have downloaded the windows 64 bit version on my computer that runs windows 7. However, I am having a hard time either 1) installing it (if that needs to be done) or 2) moving the .dll into the right folder for Pro tools to be able to run the plugin. Please help. I may be totally approaching this all wrong.

  93. Wojciech Marzec 2016/01/12 at 20:51

    A piece of art, as it looks, as it sounds, as it influences hearing and shapes the workflow. Not everyone will notice that, because not everyone understands this kind of aesthetic engineering. Congratulations from NOSPR orchestra studio, Katowice.

  94. Brendan Conlon 2016/03/08 at 12:36

    Hi, I’m using Reaper and Cubase and your Limiter6 works perfectly with both of them. I absolutely love the interface, it’s like old analogue gear that I trained on in the 1980’s when I was working for Radio New Zealand. I’m using it for mastering and it is the best compressor/limiter plugin that I have found. I have one question for you. On the compressor, where you have the attack speed starting at 0.05, is that 50 milliseconds with the next notch then being 200 milliseconds. Therefore is the maximum attack time 2 seconds? Thanks again for the great plugin. I will be sending you a donation in the next few weeks. Cheers, BC.

  95. DEREK 2016/03/11 at 21:39

    Hi Vlad,

    I recently stumbled across your products. I am curious about the Proximity plugin and it capabilities to correct phase cancellation. I am thinking that maybe your plugin can ‘virtually’ tweak the distance of a mic from the face of a guitar amp. I am running a stereo rig, and I am trying to fix some phase cancellation. You’re thoughts?

    Looking forward to digging into your plugins in the coming weeks.


  96. Jesse Santoyo 2016/03/22 at 03:55

    I cannot seem to download a few of your plugins(Molot, Limiter no 6, Proximity are some of them). I am using a PC and I work with ProTools 12 and I would love to try these awesome plugins on my tracks. Can you help me with this problem?

  97. Jim Alger 2016/05/11 at 19:05

    these plugins don’t download Kind of bummed I wasted so much time trying to get them. They come highly recommended and none of them would download. oh well good luck the old saying “nothing from Nothing is still Nothing”

  98. devon 2016/05/24 at 18:05

    Hi i been trying to find the download button to download a plugin but can not find it…can someone please tell me how to do it?

  99. devon 2016/05/24 at 18:07

    please can someone tell me where is the download button for plugins

  100. Eoghan Tyrrell 2016/06/21 at 17:12

    Hi Vlad,

    I hope you’re well!

    I am currently conducting research into the effectiveness of distance illusory software for my masters thesis. This summer I will be building and testing Michael Gerzon’s Distance Pan-pot. I was wondering if you, and those at TDR, are open to sharing the methods by which ‘Proximity’ works. i.e how early reflection times and gains are calculated etc. Such information would be incredibly valuable to me as I could compare your methods to those of Gerzon’s. Such a comparison would fill out my background research chapters and make for a fascinating read!

    Love your plugins,


    • vladgsound 2016/08/31 at 01:39

      Hi Eoghan! Probably my answer is too late but there’s no any magic in Proximity:
      1. For distance delay just digital delay was used
      2. For air absorption just calculated tables of real air absorptions were used
      3. For proximity microphone effect simple model was calculated
      4. For width change simple geometrical model was used
      5. For early reflections I think this Gerzon’s paper was used as a base
      But combination of these 5 simple effects with 1 knob gave very useful plugin as the result

  101. Justin Perkins 2016/07/29 at 03:17

    Hi, do you plan to make a VST3 version of Limiter No 6?

  102. Ricky 2016/08/16 at 08:30

    How do you control the dithering on the Molot?

  103. unaHm 2016/08/25 at 05:08

    Vlad, I’ve been using this plugin for over a year now, and it’s fantastic! I particularly like using it on my Bass Guitar, because of the extra character this plugin adds.

    I understand that your background is in programming, but I was wondering if you’d attempted to make an actual analogue unit…at least in terms of the circuitry. If so, I would build it and take it with me everywhere!

    • vladgsound 2016/08/31 at 01:32

      Thanks! I don’t have analog gear making experiences. Probably it’s better to put the effects in compact DSP processor?

      • unaHm 2016/09/24 at 15:43

        That definitely makes sense, given the power of DSP chips these days! Of course, we’re at the mercy of what you actually want to do 🙂

  104. Jonathan 2016/08/30 at 14:51

    Hi Vladislav,

    I really enjoy your plugins and I just want to confirm I can use them in my audio mixes that will be sold for profit. Is this allowed?

    Thank you

  105. Ricky 2016/08/31 at 16:56

    Thank you for the info!!!!!!!

  106. David briggs 2016/10/11 at 09:57

    Hi Vlad..just trying out the Molot..very nice..where are the presets you talk about in the manual.I have looked for them using a Mac/ AU app..cant find them..I have also been using it in Protools 10.310 OSX 10.8.5 with the bluecat VST to AAX Wrapper…Also the Limiter 6..you mention AAX in the works.When will that happen? Great plug ins.

    • vladgsound 2016/12/23 at 13:03

      Well, probably BlueCat’s wrapper doesn’t support presets. I never used it so I can’t tell you what the problem with presets. On the other hand I use some of standard presets a lot (in real life situations) so probably it’s good to offer screenshots of preset settings somewhere.
      About Limiter6 it was planned in 2016 but I was too busy to complete this project. It’s expected in 1st quarter of 2017.
      Some features already implemented and some are in progress. What do we have now:
      1. Drag&drop of modules (variable order)
      2. Molot in compressor modes
      3. Smooth blend between multiband and single band operation
      4. Dry mix for each module
      5. Each module can have stereo or MS mode, separate M & S gains and thresholds
      6. Metering drag&drop module with LUFS and so on.

  107. Raf M-yan 2016/10/24 at 20:40

    Hi Vlad…My computer can’t open limiter NO6 it’s saying “To continue working where you left off, Please restart Audition” . I’m restarted Audition and it’s can’t open again..Please Help .

    • vladgsound 2016/12/23 at 12:49

      Hmm, probably the plugin was disabled as “unstable” and you should re-enable it somewhere in options. On the other hand I didn’t have problems with Audition. Could you try another version of Limiter6? (there are 2 versions with different GUIs on downloads page)

  108. Michael Schomers 2016/11/03 at 18:21

    Hello, I downloaded your Limiter #6, but I can’t get it to load into Logic X. Any ideas?

  109. Sebastian 2016/12/18 at 11:54

    Hi Vlad, I’ve heard so good references about your plugins that I was really excited to try them, so I downloaded Molot, Limiter 6 and Nova 67P, following your instructions I did the installations but unfortunately none of them appear in my plugins list… I run Pro Tools 12 in a mac, any chance that I can fix it somehow? Please let me know, I really want to try them. Thank you!

    • vladgsound 2016/12/23 at 12:42

      Hi Sabastian, unfortunately these plugins don’t have Pro Tools version. You must use some kind of wrapper plugin such as BlueCat Patchwork to load them.

  110. Paul 2017/01/10 at 03:23

    Just downloaded your plug-ins. GREAT!
    Can I get some of the presets as shown on the videos???
    Canadian Unknown Singer

  111. Marc 2017/01/14 at 15:41

    when I use Proximity in Cubase I`ve got all Presets in the Preset Folder.
    But when I use Proximity in Reaper I can`t find the Presets.
    Is there a possibility to import the Presets of the Plugin in Reaper?
    Ore can you tell me the folder of the Presets for this Plugin?
    Thank you in advance, best regards

  112. PRJR 2017/02/02 at 18:35


    I am an Audio Engineer base out of Cincinnati Ohio. How can I get in contact with you about creating a custom plug in? I hear you’re the man!! you can check out more about me at PRJRSound.com


  113. Elias 2017/06/23 at 19:39

    Hey Vlad! Molot is my favorite compressor but on my laptop crashes every time I load it! The “no GUI” version still works but I need the meter lol. I suspect it has something to do with c++ redistributables (that’s what Audacity crash log showed, Reaper’s had some numbers). Is there a specific redistributable I should have? I’m on Windows 10 x64 my CPU is an i7 3720m. Thanks a lot!!!

  114. Paal 2017/08/08 at 14:04

    Hi. I downloaded the “Molot” compressor for Windows. But when I extract the RAR file, the package missing installation file. Help?

  115. Eugene 2017/09/07 at 10:18

    Hi, Vlad!
    Thank you for your great products! I’ve found ’em quite useful in my projects. So, now I’m planning to move to Harrison Mixbus and unfortunately Molot crashes the app, both AU and VST on Mac. Is there a way to handle it?

    Thanks in advance,

  116. Douglas Flaherty 2017/09/12 at 17:27

    I absolutely LOVE your Limiter №6, please please please create a version that is compatible with Pro Tools 10 (32 AAX or RTAS).

  117. Ilya 2017/10/04 at 21:22

    Hi, Vlad!
    DeEdger! MacOS 10.13, Logic does not find the plugin !!! ((((

  118. Ilya 2017/10/04 at 21:31

    Vlad, I’m SORRY! I was looking for a plugin in the TDR folder)))

  119. Jessica 2017/11/15 at 17:11

    Help! Mac Sierra 10.12.5. I have used Limiter 6for a while I love it! But I got a new computer and now it doesn’t seem yo work. I’ve downloaded and put the component and vst where it should be. I’ve restarted Live and my computer several times. NO LUCK! PLEASE HELP. TY!

  120. Liam 2018/06/27 at 07:40

    Vlad – I love Garageband and I use Limiter 6 on everything. Their recent 10.3 update disabled your third party plugin. Do you know of any fixes?

  121. Leon 2018/11/16 at 00:39

    Please help the plugin does not work in windows 10 cubase.

    Please. I reinstalled my win 10 and now i forgot what i installed the last time to make the molot 64 bit GUI work in cubase. I only see the molot GUI picture but cant interact with it.

  124. Boi 2020/01/06 at 21:46

    Limiter 6 doesn’t work for me in FL studio 20.1 :(???
    I normally have a custom vst folder so I tried putting it in default folders but still not working 😦 please help :O
