Waiting for them to do a multiband compressor :)

In the mean time, this looks really good.

Id love to have all the Pro plugs, but it is a bit to expensive imo.
Wish for a group buy, or something! :)

Wow, the (mid/side) upward expansion is pretty terrific.

At the risk of making myself sound like a noob - should this go after your limiter or before? I haven't used an expander on the master channel before. Seems like it would need to go after. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

Seems counter-intuitive to want to expand and limit at the same time, no?

Right, good point. I don't actually limit really. I use the make up gain of the bus compressor to push up against the limiter so that the limiter doesn't do anything, it's just there for loudness. I guess an expander would be getting the same end result then. I'm just trying out subtly expanding frequencies above about 1k and only for the side channel. I always do M/S eq on the master also so maybe these would conflict or be redundant, I don't know.

A business model I wish more devs would/could adopt.
