Will you be bringing your EQ plug-ins to the VST format?
thanks,
Eliott

I don't know, do you think anyone's interested? It's alot of work and noone's asked me for it yet. You're the first. Wouldn't it have to be native-mode?

I think you'd do great business with VST. While the VST format generally sells for less than TDM or others, there are far more people who are using and will be using VST in the future (because it is a native format and the processing power of computers is increasing while prices are coming down.)
Being the 1st to request, I'll also offer to beta test it for you!
BTW, I use the Paris DAW on a Mac G3 350 and would certainly welcome your quality of EQ.

A follow-up question, please. Do you or those in your company actually write the program for the plug-ins or do you license your name to developers for the plug-ins?

Licensing may be the way to go, in that a team that is already set up to write VST (such as those who wrote Ren EQ & Comp) could customize their work to achieve your "sound" and function of EQ. Surely this is what is happening with most hardware makers who have now branched into software for DAWS.
Just a thought.

Dear Eliott,

No, we write everything ourselves. No wait, for Mackie, Bob Tudor and Chris Jubian did some of the integration, and in the end, also changed the 'look' over to something they liked better.

We keep all of the DSP code held pretty close. I don't really see anyone else's improving it beyone what we can do - we've been at this a long time.

I admire your dedication and insistance on giving us the "real thing" in your plug-ins instead of something "GML-like". Hopefully you'll be able to do it for VST!

I being a VST user would certainly benefit from your plug ins, why doesn't E.Q. do an online poll or something. Besides, the platform could use some high quality plugins.

By the way, I think what you guys are doing here for the home and project studio owners is terrific!
