ADverb Updated...

by Chris Randall

Audio Damage ADverb, our "vintage digital" plate, has been updated to 1.1.0. This update includes 32/64-bit Windows VST and 32/64-bit OS X VST and AU. Any remaining vestiges of PPC support have been removed, so if you think you're getting the New Hotness for your old 'n' busted G4 tower, think again. Anyhow, hit the AD Store and you'll find the new ADverb in your account if you're already an owner. If not, I strongly suggest you buy it, because I'm of the considered opinion that the more you engage in commerce with the Audio Damage site, the more I'll like you, and I think we should put that theory to the test.

Kombinat Dva is next out the chute, then the 64-bit version of BS2, and so on and so forth...

I'd just like to mention farewell to Beatserv. Some of if not the best drum loops on the planet. Great stuff Wade! Sorry to see Beatserv go. But good luck on your new ventures (I'm sure you won't need it, though). Great love for the Beatserv beats here.

@thechrisl: yes, it would be great, but there is nothing in the Windows registry that says where the default VST folder is. I guess we could put in our own entry; I could look into that. I see your point re multiple installs and updates.

Phase Two's mix depth won't go any deeper; it's already at 100%. That was one of the interesting things about acquiring a Bi-Phase for that project: by today's standards, it's a somewhat subtle effect. Maybe we should do an emulation of the Oakley Equinoxe phase shifter with its 8-pole "Deep" modification, two of which I completed and installed in my modular recently.

@Adam... yes! Do it! Phase Two is my all time favorite plug-in phaser. Nothing else comes close. I'd love another phaser that goes even deeper. An Oakley Equinoxe emulation sounds like it would be another great one for AD! FWIW... I'll take a great phaser over a chorus or flanger any day (but if you guys did an A/DA flanger, that'd be killerly awesome, too).

Also... have you ever checked out the Studio Electronics Modmax Filter or Phasor? A filter and phaser plug-in with the control of those units would be sum kinda awesome, too. I don't think anyone's done it in the plug-in world yet. Not too many hardware units do it that I'm aware of (I have the Phasor pedal... very cool box).

Oh, yeah... and I'm way on the Ratshack Reverb band wagon, too. Don't let that one go away.

I'm a Ratshack fiend. 'Cause it comes close to "Warning Sign."

Not cool to link to Talking Heads without a warning of some kind. What if I didn't have a Flash blocker and it just started playing?

It's great seeing all the Ratshack love in this thread.. Count me in for the lovefest. Ratshack has its uses... and for those uses, it is the King.

Also - I may be immature, but I can't help but chuckle when someone laments that you don't "Go Deeper" into their phase...

My Win7 registry key is:

Value name: VSTPluginsPath

I don't recall how it got there. I also saw somewhere that you can set a default path at: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/VST (which I didn't do).

95% of my plugins know where to go now. Why/how the installer knows that is beyond my expertise... I realize this may be a lost cause if this isn't a standard registry entry. For others, consider the above a tip when you have a lot of plugins to install...

@thechrisl: Huh. I have that entry in my registry also. Okay, next time I build an installer, I'll attempt to pre-load the target directory with that key's value.

Of course, that doesn't help 64-bit users, but I suspect that they're still in the minority.
