Moneys worth is an understatement with that thing, probably best overall use vs price ratio out there.

Dang, I hadn't heard about Drop until reading this thread... Now I want to be cryogenically frozen until December :-(

On the plus side... had totally forgotten again about the potential to use DCAM & Xils as effects to utilise their filters... still haven't yet tried that.

I love the UAD Moog filter which i got recently.

it really really sounds like a Moog ( although obviously very 2-D, thin, and 'lacking in bass', because it's software)

But for software, it's pretty good.

After many hours lost, I've found that neither DCAM or Xils-3 will currently function as a filter for external stereo audio.

I can't get Xils-3 to work at all, Xavier acknowledged the problem & says he is going to do some testing.

DCAM will work... but only accepts a mono input signal (stereo gets summed to mono.).

Oh dear, let's pray for an early release of The Drop.

well.. that sounds very analog also to me.. probably you are saying about "VERY GOOD" analog. just analog doesn't mean sucking balls situation.

Simonator, have you tried using a plugin host within Logic? Something like Bidule?

Thanks for your suggestion.

FXPansion actually suggested that I get Bidule too.

The problem is-

* That is going to cost me £80... For marginally more, I could purchase Nebula, which is top of my shopping list anyway, and features great filters.

* There is no demo of the plug-in version of Bidule, so I can't even be sure of how well this would work in reality without taking a leap of faith & splashing the cash.

* Cytomic The Drop will be out in a matter of months, and will clearly be superior to Strobe's filter... so this would be an expensive sticking-plaster solution until then.

* I would still be running TWO instances of CPU hungry, oversampling DCAM synths (plus Bidule itself.), just to filter one stereo signal... which is inefficient use of system resources.

* Using some messy routing-

Thus, to apply the filter to a stereo mix, I figure I'd need to:




* Route all my tracks/busses to an aux channel; as though that were the master. Apply any pre-filtering master channel fx to this aux.

* Route that aux to TWO additional aux channels. Pan one hard left & the other hard right.

* Create two instrument tracks with StrobeFX opened as a midi-controlled effect. Route one of the L/R panned aux's into the sidechain input of each of these. Hard-pan the output in the same relevant direction.

* Set up both instances of StrobeFX with identical settings, and assign a single midi-knob to control the filter cut-off on both instances of Strobe (or cut & paste the same identical automation to both tracks.)

* Route both of these to the master output 1-2, apply any post-filter FX.

... So five additional channels to achieve stereo filtering of the mix.
I can actually achieve the same thing as what Bidule would do for me in this situation... so I'm not really inclined to spend semi-serious cash just to tidy that up a little.



Ultimately, having experimented with a whole bunch of filters on my master channel, I've ended up just going back to Fabfilter Simplon... it sounds good (if a little too clean perhaps.), and importantly, it has the least effect on the signal when the high-pass is swept all the way down to minimum (something like 4Hz.); it's hardly noticeable, whereas all the other filters I tried had an obvious, audible affect of the sound.
