V2!...It has been released! A day earlier at that. I like this kinda marketing...under promise and over deliver. Great job Quinto! Your raising the bar on many fronts my friend. Developers take note.

Quinto, you're the man. The second email worked. The problem was on my end. My PC has been messing up all day.

Once I got it, Cubase wouldn't recognize it. I had to restart the computer. Everything is good now.

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly.

I immediately tried V2. It is a wonderful sound!
but, there are two big problems in this plug-in.

1.Soft and Medium are the same sounds.

This problem can be found in an easy test.
Please reverse Phase of Roundtone that changes to the same setting excluding the tape mode.
The sound disappears completely.
I do not understand whether the bug or the design.

2.Saturation is always constant, and it doesn't swing.

Let's test by way of experiment with other plug-ins.
URS,VTAPE,Nebula,Decapitator,Varisaturator,Twintube......
These plug-ins are inserted in two audio tracks by the same setting, and one of Phase is reversed.
Then, the sound doesn't disappear completely.

The sound disappears completely in RoundTone. I am guessing that this is a factor of a digital feeling.

-------
I like the sound of RoundTone. The sound change is also very happyheh

I am looking forward to Roundtone's becoming a more wonderful plug-in.

Antoe sound in Nebula disappear too and no Saturation isn't constant. It is different how to say it - per source. Of course if you drive two same samples it will sound same but roundtone will react different with different input, or instrument. If that make sense. And making this phase cancel test not to cancel when testing plugin is actually quite easy to do. One developer can program just different variation or fluctuation in volume and you won't have perfect silence anymore when making these test. I just hope developers won't take time to make these ridiculous "tweaks" just so they could say how their plugin is "non linear"..

What i want to ask is something different and not connected to sound at all.

Quinto i don't understand one thing. Here https://www.gearslutz.com/board/6205671-post211.html i see that knobs are perfectly aligned but in version you sent to me MIX knob is slightly above everything and it seems weird so to speak..Like i am drunk. Is that some kind of error on my plugin? I would really like to see everything aligned. I know it sounds like i am whining but i am not i am just asking. I still didn't have time to test new sound properly but overall i like new features apart from de aligned MIX knob on my version..

It's not just your version. Mines like that too. Didn't even really notice until you mentioned it though. Like the sound so far. I have barely had a chance to toy with it though.

I've been messing with this plug all day and I have to say I both like and dislike it.

I think that the part of me not liking it all the way is my own fault though. I've been throwing this into things that were already mixed or partially mixed and it's mostly just harmful. It's not like Massey or ReelTape Sat where you can just throw it in with subtle settings (although you can get extreme sounds from them too)...

I did start trying it on one song from scratch and there it worked fine because I knew what it was getting me into. It's probably going to mean less filtering and fighting the upper freqs, so future mixes should come together faster. And I guess that makes sense because if you mixed something in a DAW and then could magically turn the computer into a tape machine, your mix would sound off...

Anyways, this is a nice addition to the arsenal, especially for what it costs.

it's not a .zip file - just rename it do roundtone.dll and place it in your vst folder

Thanks!

I just tried that and it wont show up in Cubase.

Fix - seems you cannot have the old and new versions in the pug folder at the same time?

You don't need both version. Latest version is preset compatible with the old one.

Also windows default can be set to hide known file extension type. You'll need to uncheck that or you can't properly rename the file.
(you can uncheck the "Hide extensions for known file types" by clicking Tools>Folder Options>View...)

Hi antoe, thank you

Soft and Medium: they are slightly different modes, but they are not the same. They affect the saturation. Hard, medium and soft are related to saturation coming at top (hard, more "headroom"), medium or lower level.

About saturation: no tricks, in the models. No artificial swinging and, most of all, no "non-deterministic" random parameters. I cannot use a device whose output isn't exactly the same at the same exact point of the song (hardware is another story, of course). Finding beating frequencies after mixdown is something I got with some "vintage" plugins.
