Also, as I'm trying to make a point here https://forum.cockos.com/showthread....14#post1925514 , I've put together a JSFX that I used nearly on all tracks as a channel strip. You can find it here: https://stash.reaper.fm/browse.php?q=macfizz&x=0&y=0

LOL. That sounds like something I might do! I had no intention of mixing this month but was feeling crappy yesterday and needed a distraction so I opened what I thought was the current project and started mixing.

At least I had fun mixing it.

Cheers.

Ok, real quick feedback, didn't have time to listen real closely:
1-Nice, balanced. Drums a bit thin. That’s mine and I really had no time to do anything better. Not sure I would have made something much better with more time on my hands anyway...
2- overcompressed drums. Way too much verb on lead vox.
3- Nice stereo on guitars. Drums a bit thin.
4- Solid drums. A bit too much highs on drums
5- Overall nice, a bit too much sybillant on lead vox
6- Weak drums. Lead vox a bit too low
7- Nice. Back vox a bit low
8- a bit overcompressed drums
9- Lacks brightness

thanks!!! thanks!!
im feel really really happy
It was a year of many things on a personal level and this contest was gaining importance throughout my year in which I liked to participate during all this time. In spite of how symbolic the result may seem, I learned a lot with the tools and the other users, the feedback was important, the kindness of the participants, definitely beyond the results I think it is a beautiful community where there is a lot of respect and notion of camaraderie.
I thank everyone and I hope you have liked my mixes !!

on a feedback, i´ll write a post about it, but really god mixes, my fav was number 7 (Echowerk), really a nice balanced mix, overall.

man awesome work! congratulations!
I was using your plugin and I liked it a lot, it works very well, have you thought about optimizing a plugin for reverb? I personally consider that reorganizing the effects of JS reverb and delay would be very interesting, especially when it comes to achieving good results without so many parameters.

Some more bugfix and improvements:


Some kind of multiFX (chorus/delay/reverb) is on the way.
However, I haven't find a really good reverb yet and implementing one is going to take some time. For now the chorus is Stillwell's and the delay is Witti's MDA.
I'm also wondering if it would be a good idea implementing those effects directly in the channel strip but i a second page (it's getting really crowded now).

To be continued...

Default Yeah, updates !!!

Some more updates because who doesn't like updates !
unnamed
- Some more bug fix (thx Witti), gate release works as expected now.
- Knobs are not from SWIPE anymore. So, it's all mouseclick+vertical movement (with shift modifier) and mousewheel. "Fine" checkbox removed, didn't need it anymore. Similar look.
- Added "Saturation" by LOSER

Update !!
Because I screwed up the last one...

- Even more bugfixes
- Fixed Saturation knob (didn't work at all)
- Switched gate dsp to Witti's gate
- Switched filter to Stillwell x-pole implementation
Please note:
On some systems, crackling noises can be heard at time, I'm still investigating...

Well, why not, I think I have a pretty good handle on that now.
Depends on the plugins and graphics.

I usually use ReaEQ, ReaComp (or 1175), Bad Buss Mojo, Channel Delayer, Transient Controller, Stereo Enhancer and Saturation. Can I sketch my desired layout? xD

A package including 1175, Bad Buss Mojo, Channel Delayer, Transient Controller, Stereo Enhancer and Saturation is definetly possible.
Plugin order might be difficult to manage, but there's allways solutions to be found.
There's not much visual feedback aside from gain reduction for the 1175.
You have a layout idea ?

Sliders are also available in SWIPE, so it should be doable.

OK, as I will be away for a couple a weeks, here's a draft, just to see what's possible and what's not.

I've droped the saturation's graphics as I didn't feel it was really important.
Horizontal and vertical sliders are from SWIPE, so no mousewheel at least for now.
The plugins order is fix for now.
I'll make every plugins available separatly with its GUI in case anyone is interested.
