    Resound tweeted this yesterday. I'm yet to test it myself but he's a fucking pro so it should be awesome. If I understood correctly, the standard version is free and "Gentleman's edition" costs 40€.

    Installed both, will play with them this weekend. Thanks for the heads up gents!

    They also have a free Feedback Compressor i downloaded...
    ...I've never heard of/used a feedback compressor before, can anyone enlighten me as to what it does?

    - TDR's blurb about it.

    So it compresses the input signal based on the (already-compressed) output? wut? Maybe when I try it out i'll understand it more..

    ^ No offense to anyone, but that explanation seems pretty shady to me

    possibly, but the plugs sound terrific, the compressor and the eq are brilliant

    Apparantly feedback compressors sound smoother but feedforward ones are more accurate, which is why the 'normal' compressors are feedforward. Sounds a little bit like analogue v digital to me.
    Really old compressors and emulations of them tend to be feedback.

    I guess feedback can't have a very short attack time because the signal has to go through the compressor before it starts to be compressed? (if that makes sense)

    If you get reacomp or blockfish (both free), you can switch between feedforward and feedback and try and hear the difference.

    The documentation for the new U-he Dynamics plugin, Presswerk, has a bit on this since it does both feedback, feedforward and hybrid. It's also available to beta now. Here's a link to the KVR thread in their forums.

    Downloading and installing now, but won't get to try it out until later. The Tokyo Dawn stuff is usually pretty wonderful, although it is fairly weighty on my CPU.
