I'm not sure what you mean, but if you mean if there a pause in audio before a crash...
I actually tested it out without audio, just opening a brand new instance of live, adding the EQ to an audio track, and attempting the adjust the resolution knob (this is happening each and every time, with no fail) Live will stop what it's doing, and crash. The resolution knob does not even get a chance to move.
If there's anything I can do to help you test this let me know, I'd be happy to help out.
I spoke too soon when I said 'horrible design' safety wise, because I did not notice the limiter, but I seriously can not get the limiter to work. However, the concept is fine, if not absolutely necessary. I think without a doubt, the limiter should be activated and set at a safe default when the plug-in is opened. This will save blown speakers and ear drums, and your reputation for a sound product. Most people, I'm thinking, are going to be using this EQ with normalized levels of audio 95% of the time. I think people will not need +60dbs of gain often. Most probably will never need it.
Which takes me to my next point. Simplify. Or at least, consider it. I really like to concept of this product!!! That's why I tried it out, that's why I attempted (and failed) to reply to your thread on KVR and then finally found a thread on here to give you my feedback. I hope this product succeeds! But I think you should simplify the design. The coloured frequencies are amazing in concept, and it even works great in practice (good job). Use this as the selling point. People love colours. It helps them. Serato Scratch Live, anyone? That was one the few attributes that Serato (arguably) had over Traktor.
So in terms of being simpler, maybe like we said, adjust the option for gain boost resolution. +3, +6, +12, +60. The other thing is, I know you want to be very different, but with the colours, you already are. Look at Lives EQ8. +15 DB of gain standard. People like simple. And at a low price, you are probably trying to target a wider consumer base than the more expensive and specialized stuff, perhaps? If this is the case, maybe dropping the price and pushing the product as a "it's so cheap, you'd be stupid not to buy it, if all you have is XYZ's build in EQ".
And continuing in the vein of simplicity, maybe lower the bands offered? 60? The general producer consumer is probably overwhelmed by the thought of 60, if they are not even used to using 8. I don't know about everybody, but for me personally, sometimes the perception of over-complexity sends me running for the hills, and I never end up even downloading a demo (for thought that I may never use it, because I dont want to learn the complex product).
Hopefully you like my ideas! Again, if there's anything I can do to help. Maybe hook me up a full version and I'll help you with some marketing
