Stillwell VibeQ


I hope here are some Stillwell plugin users. A few days ago I downloaded their demo VibeQ plugin. I must say I like it a lot because it's very smooth sounding equalizer. Unfortenatelly, I experience some problems:

- hpf twists adds a lot of high noise, same for the os button.
- twisting any of the rotary gain buttons (low shelf, mid1, mid2 and high shelf) adds big amount of high crackles to the audio

I've tried it on three different machines. Always the same. Anybody experienced something like that with this plugin?

I'm a big fan of the Vibe EQ, hell yeah. Gobs of character!

Only 2 things I can think of that may be the problem. Either your computer is not optimized for sound or there's an issue between the plug and your OS. I'd contact Stillwell and make an inquiry about it.

Yeah I think you have some kind of compatibility issue specific to your setup. Vibe is working for me on 3 different Macs and a 2015 i7 custom PC as well as my laptop.

On the macs I'm running Vibe 32bit on both Logic and Reaper. On the PC and laptop im running 64bit on Windows 7 pro with no issues. Email Stillwell. They are a nice company. Great plugin by the way!

Thank you guys!!

I'll contact Stillwell. Btw, first machine is i7 W8.1 64bit Cubase 8, second i7 WinXP-SP3 32bit Cubase 5 and third old dual core Win7 32bit Cubase 5.
All three systems work flawlessly. No problems with other plugins there.
