Dear friends,

As stated in our product pages :

Once you have purchased or upgraded to V.I.P. Bundle status, all subsequent plug-ins released for the V.I.P. bundle will be free of charge ! In 2012 we will expand the DontCrack V.I.P. bundle to over 40 plug-ins - and as you are a V.I.P. customer we wont ask you for any more money.

Therefore, if you have any suggestions about new plug-ins you'd like us to create, please let us know. Keep in mind that DontCrack plug-ins must be simple and quick to use. So don't ask us to create a new DAW or a complete multi effect plug-in. That is not the point...

We look forward to completing our DC V.I.P. Series bundle with nice & easy plug-ins that inspire creativity, not restrain it !

Thanks in advance for your collaboration.

Kind Regards - Peter

Hi,

I suggest a panner plugin, like Melda's Autopan or the Pan Station from Audio damage. Something like these.

Hi Morpheus,

Doesn't this one work for you :

Yes, it's o.k., but I mean a pure stereo panner, without or not based on soundeffects like tremolo or so on.....you know? smile.gif

Since I use my DAW rig for mixing live concerts with SAC (softwareaudioconsole), I would like to see something really simple:

A Tap Delay with a dedicated tap button! Nowadays there are billions of delay/echo plugins available. Most of them can do sophisticated things like: F.e. Ping pong, rhythmic delay patterns, inverse dealy and so on. But there a only very few tap-able (by mouse clicking) delays out there! The sync-option is nothing you can use in a live scenario, a simple tap button would do the trick. Maybe add sweepable a hi- and low-cut to it. And it would be really cool, if you could add a simple one-knob overdrive/distortion feature to this plugin. Distorted delays are quite "hipp" in modern rock mixes. So this would be three knobs in total.
1. Hi Cut
2. Low Cut
3. Overdrive

and one Tap Button. That's it. I'm quite sure, there are lot of live sound techs out there, that would really appreciate a plugin like that. Even if you don't use SAC, there are vst-host out there (f.e. the "live-professor": http://ifoundasound.com/?page_id=8 ), that can replace a lot of common outboard gear needed for mixing concerts. The "poor mans Waves Multirack" ( http://www.waveslive.com/html/multirack.aspx ) as one may say wink.gif

Hi Christian,

Thanks for this great suggestion ! We'll discuss this ASAP.

ideas for future DC plugs:

-bit crusher / lo-fi plugin
-spring reverb
-speaker simulator
-models of specific distortion pedals (i.e. Big Muff, Pro Co Rat, Ibanez Tube Screamer, etc.)
-"tilt' EQ
-Electro-Harmonix Memory Man
-pitch shifting delay
-vocoder
Morpheus
An expander and perhaps a frequence shifter or a granular pitch shifter?

Thanks guys,

All of these sound great and we will start evaluating asap.

I'd like to see a collection of "maintenance tools".. e.g. Denoiser, Declicker etc.
A De-Esser would be nice too.
But one plugin I would love to have (and I have so far never found a way to achieve this via one single plugin,.. it usually involves a lot of delicate handling), is .. a "De-Popper"...
You have a great vocal track (no possibility of re-recording it), but the singer didn't use a pop shield.
Now, build us a "virtual pop shield" that works like "the morning after pill", and I shall love you forever! tongue.gif

+1 for the panner-balancer.
Especially a good MONO panner. Only Pro Tools offers a +/- 100 range-resolution panner. (I work in Logic Pro)
And I can't simply find just 1 mono pan plugin around.
It would save me.

We are working on all suggestions that have been posted above. Really cool ones too !

The good news is that we should have a new version tomorrow or thursday at the latest. It wont be 1.0.2 but 1.2. Ain't that good food to speculate... wink.gif

Just bought the collection - great value as a bundle and some really nice individual plugs in there. What's missing, and hard to find anywhere, is some genuine multichannel dynamics. The compressors are particularly good, I think - would love to have them available for 5.1 mix compression or drum busses.

Hi rogerking,

That is good food for the mind... We'll talk our devs into that !

Thanks for the kind words and the useful comment. We'll try to follow-up on that.

I'd really appreciate a decent Leslie cabinet.
There are already some very good ones out there (e.g. the one in AmpliTube 3), but they all involve loading some large plugin (Amplitube 3, Guitar Rig 4+ etc) or loading an actual virtual B3 as an FX. The Dont Crack ethic of "one plugin for one job" would be perfect for this wink.gif.

Hi Peter,
kudos for being so fast in reacting to us DC-plug-in users' suggestions.
Always nice to know that one is not talking into the deep black void.

Anyways, here's my two cents:

The DC-Retro Equaliser could use a low cut filter IMHO, so that you don't have to use up the nice low band controls for it.
How about two push buttons to the left of the V.U., one with "40 Hz" cut when pushed, the other with "80 Hz" and pushing
both together would give you... "150 Hz"! (Did I do my math? No waaay!)

It would keep the simplicity of the GUI and the whole concept intact, but would free up a whole band of EQ.
I photoshopped that into the original, like so: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/25038534/DC-RetroLowCut.jpg

One plug-in that could use additional pizzazz is the Beatles' EQ (DC brightness).
Yes, the 2.8 Hz - 3.5 Hz - 10 Hz peak boost/cut was what they used. BUT, to my knowledge, this was
an addition to what they had in the EMI mixing console, namely a 100 Hz shelf cut/boost
and a 10 kHz shelf/5 kHz peak boost.
...there is space for one smaller pot each left and right to the big knob - again, totally in keeping
the looks and easy layout of the original. I would buy the improved version!!!

Thanks for listening to my babble.

+1 for restauration plugins like a (useable) denoiser, a declicker and decrackler. I don't think it is possible, but it would be great If we could get a hint if they are coming within the introprice period...

I think the effects sound cool & are fast and easy to use - fine.
EQs & compressors are already available in every possible flavour - so I think its a waste of time to build more....
. whats definitely missing is automation/midi capability!!!!!!!!
for further development Id like to see:
. tube leslie simulation, syncable and fast/slow/brake switch (midi!!!), amp controlls
. a good wah wah pedal - like the fulltone clyde deluxe - that doesnt click(step) when the pedal moves fast (also midi controlled)
. simulation of the digitech whammy pedal
. a few more cool echo units (like memory man deluxe, binsonette, space echo, tc 2290.....)
. something like the moogerfooger pedals
. tc 1210 chorus/flanger

looking forward to new developments

best regards

like the plugs Peter. Very easy to use and some of them have some really interesting preset sounds. I have just bought them and will be looking forward to the next series of plugs.

Do you have any plans on making a killer vocal rider? That would be awesome!

Thanks for the nice series,

+1 for a de-esser. Hopefully this is already in progress?

Great sounding plugs, thank you for making them available!
SmeeNZ
A couple of pluggins I like to use you might consider:

Reapers ReaGate: Very nice plug, but the main thing I use this for is the MIDI triggering. You can send MIDI notes when the gate opens. Perfect for replacing drum elements (kick, snare etc).

VarietyOfSound DensityMK11: Bus compressor. Kinda like a 1176, but not really. Just something big and transparent that like the Density sounds better the more you crank it. Omg I love that comp haha. Stillwell Audio also has one that sounds amazing, but I cant get the UI through my head, its crazy (someone mentioned it looks like the dash in his Nissan Maxima haha)

What about a range of plugs that really focus in on certain instruments and offers 3 or 4 knobs of options to tweak. Much like the Waves signature range or perhaps the Toontracks EZmix?! I've tried both and found them to be handy little tools.

Couple of ideas for the pile for ya. Keep up the great work. Really digging the VIP range so far.
mojoboxx
Hi, some may say I have too much spare time at my hands...

Agreed, so here's the photoshopped GUI of the improved DC-Brightness (aka Beatles Abbey Road EQ) I was talking about in a previous mail:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/25038534/AbbeyRoad-EQ.jpg

The 10 kHz shelf cut and 5 kHz peak boost on the right side knob may seem positively odd, but that was what was available on EMI's REDD-Console.
Of all the plug-ins dealing with the subject, this would be the one to REALLY offer what those lovely Liverpool lads had!

Best, mojoboxx

Hi

Great suggestions so far. I'd like to add:
- rhythmical gate (pattern gate, stutter gate, trance gate, whatever you'd like to call it). The MOTU Digital Performer has one which is quite nice
- Autofilter (Which reacts to the volume of your signal, see Logic Pro for example).
- Autowah with resonance filter
- Bass-Synth effect (see Boss Bass-Synth effects pedal) which is triggered by the audio signal
- comb filter with resonance, ring modulation and metalize parameters for robot voices, crazy drums and aetherial pad sounds
- Fuzz (different characteristics, plus Octaver on/off)
- A noise gate with a switch that allows you to activate a LoFi on/off sound like that spooky effect in the Cosmonaut Voice? plugin for Pro Tools
- Phase shifting effect that allows you to create pseudo-surround effects

Hi Peter and Co.
I was thinking over the weekend about what ya'll could come up with next.
And i was thinking it would be really nice if there was a nice Mono to Stereo Plugin (Pseudo Stereo effect) in the VIP Series.

A stereo width plugin could be cool. A big knob that would move the L or the R channel(adjustable?) a few ms forward, an Lp/HP/BP filter and a dry/wet knob. Something like the Waves doubler only cleaner and simpler (the waves doubler has at least 6.7ms delay).

What Im thinking is a tool for something like backing vocals if I dont have the takes to pan it manually. This could be a simple and clean approach to something many people use frequently.

Also, an additional Mono maker knob (which adjusts the frequency the mono starts in the low end) would be cool with
Medienhexer
Oh and one suggestion concerning the Mac installer:

Please add a "select all" button. It might be okay to select 22 plugins one at a time, but the closer we get to 40something, the more likely severe injuries from the clicking-strain will become.

YES! I've heard the difference between bass panned in the center and no bass in center but distributed to the far outer sides. I didn't think this possible but there is such thing. I think a M/S processing could do that. So maybe a frequency-selective stereo width effect? Say, a band pass to select a frequency range and then a width control?

Maybe also have a look at this Stereo width compressor effect by Crysonic. They never delivered in terms of stability and performance for me but the idea is quite ingenius. Don't compress the dynamics but the stereo width!

+1 from me too.. especially if installing VST and AU and RTAS.. that's a lot of checkboxes! smile.gif

Hi, I have been using the DC Echoflex a lot lately. It's my go-to delay plug in.
So, "all's well that sounds well?" Not quite. Frankly, the order of the control knobs is somewhat irritating, IMHO.

Me thinks that the huge knobs should be labeled ECHO TIME - SUSTAIN - MIX - OUT and the small knobs top left
and right should be TONE and VARIATION. Looka here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/25038534/DC-EchoflexKnobs.jpg

Why?
Because that would set the focus on the major controls that are essential to a delay and make the additional stuff less prominent - after all, a delay would still be a delay without a tone or flutter control, but not without TIME, REPEAT (=SUSTAIN), MIX and OUT.

It also would have the nice side effect of making these important controls easier to fine tune as the knobs are bigger :-)
Just my two cents...

Best,
mojoboxx

+1

A collection similar to (but better, of course) the Waves restoration collection of plugs seems like an essential for a comprehensive plugin suite. Until hiss, pops, clicks, and other nasties have been eliminated from the world no DAW is safe. Can I vote more than once for this? smile.gif

Lobsterinn mentioned a spring reverb that I also think would be great and is in keeping with FX that can have simple interfaces. Maybe include a randomized "accidentally whacked the box" button just for fun.

Also, Medienhexer mentioned a, "comb filter with resonance, ring modulation and metalize parameters for robot voices, crazy drums and aetherial pad sounds", and, "Phase shifting effect that allows you to create pseudo-surround effects", that both sound like winners.

I think Medienhexer is on to something even bigger, however. With the inclusion of a restoration suite and maybe multi-band dyanamics your bundle would then cover more than enough bread and butter processing and standard FX (imo, of course). Perhaps what could further differentiate DC from other devs would be to begin concentrating on a few esoteric FX in the spirit of GRM tools.

I mean, how many straight-ahead flavors of distortion, filter, and time domain plugs do we need?

I'm just sayin'. smile.gif

Hello. I am really using these plugins in a lot of my productions and on top of everyone else's excellent suggestions:
I would like a Mid/Side encoder and decoder.
I would like to be able to sidechain/key input all of the current plugins.
For something different I would like a voice to midi converter.

Cheers,
Colin.

First I must say that I disagree with most of the suggestions here. The spirit of the V.I.P. bundle seems to be classic analog emulations of compressors, eq and modulation and enhancers.

I would like to see a:
Neve 33609 emulation for buss compression.

Russian Big Muff Pi guitar pedal. The best sounding Big Muff IMO and never emulated.

Amp Head and Cabinet simulator. Please keep the gui scheme though because I hate the speaker looking plugs. It should look like a hardware amp simulator, cause that's what it really is anyways.

Chandler Limited Germanium Compressor. I love the EMI sounding hardware.

DBX 106Vu

Channel Strip with selectable preamp saturation to VCA clean compressor with HP filter, to sweet Eq (I'm thinking NightEq aka Maag Eq4) to limiter for overs.

The bundle is pretty complete IMO. I think of it as UAD for the hardware impaired.

Hi Peter not sure if its been asked for but how's about a "tilt" type eq plugin. I think it would fit well in DC range.

Medienhexer
Is it too late to suggest a vintage Vocoder?

I know there's one in Logic and then there's... Not much, really. I predict the second coming of the vocoding if only someone got it right. Just give me a side chain input to feed my modulation signal and let the vocoder vocode the channel I insert it into.

And then give me some basic parameters and the iconic vintage sounds. If you want to go crazy, add something more modern as an additional mode.

Looking forward to the upcoming update
Medienhexer
Oh and the obvious one these days - a console emulation which is easy to use. Don't really need any more saturation, I think. Just the cross talk / cross modulation part. I'm really tempted by the current Waves NLS pricing and you could relieve me and possibly others from those urges :-)

Nowadays there are millions of delay/echo plugins available. Most of them can do sophisticated things, But one plugin I would like to share with you is a "De-Popper".
Davoe
A light-weight CPU usage plug-in similar to:

FreeG

http://www.sonalksis.com/freeg.htm

Primary objective would be light CPU usage so it can go on every channel of very high track count sessions, and comply with Automap for hardware control.

I realize if you stick with your GUI the meter won't be able to perform the same level of detail, but that's not what I'm after. I don't think Sonalksis will be making an AAX version of this, and I currently use FreeG and Automap on every channel as an alternate mode of mixing for high track count post-production sessions, as opposed to the Pro Tools channel faders.

Automap has announced that AAX support is coming, and thankfully you also do AAX.

Features of it I'd say should be:

- Big knob should be the fader, that drops to infinity as well as +12
- a smaller knob "Trim" (critical in preserving a previous pass move but just wanting to adjust overall level)
- Pan knob (that pans stereo as well as mono sources)
- Flip L & R

Optional:

- MS Decoder

Your plug ins work very well with Automap, especially since there are so few controls everything fits easily on one page.
