Says the are "for 32 bit and 64bit hosts" but doesnt say if the code has been updated to full 64bit operation o rnot. I really dont want to download bundles, install them all and then discover they are 32bit only "but will work in 64bit DAW"

Yay! Some of those looked good enough I was tempted to break my 64bit-only rule, but now I dont have to.
ANOTHER excuse not to finish the tracks I am "working on"!!!

i dunno, they aren't really tinker plugins (the fx anyway), rather just straightfoward and good sounding fx with simple and easy to navigate guis. they shouldn't get in your way.

i have only used blockfish compressor and reacomp for nearly 10 years now as far as compressors go, but Dead Duck compressor has found some use here for me. i haven't tried its sidechain function yet but i look forward to it.

the instruments are good too, i like the electronic keys one a lot.

Yep, it's the old MDA piano which was always pretty good and very light on CPU. I used to use it quite often, now I use the Dead Duck version. I like the DD compressor, delay and a few other bits too. All very clean and simple.

So far I am enjoying the Dead Duck plugins, with the exception of Channel and Channel 2. In my testing, they don't seem to actually DO anything other than if you adjust the input/output knobs. Seems the channel strip functions (gate, EQ, compressor) don't function.

Anyone else able to confirm this? There is no audible difference in my test tracks even with knobs twisted to stupid extremes.

cancel. Apparently there are little on/off buttons next to each of the components in the Channel plugins... Game changer...
