First of all fantastic overdrive.

The preamp has a such a nice glue effect, love it.

The compressor, well does not feel as solid as the one in lift but might change my mind later.

Now a request :

Request : This is overdrive right ? So i need more than 20 db of gain reduction (usefull when using full wet with no filtering).

Awsome job G and the team.

Thank you.

ok the new trial version should be available on aquarius!
it's exactly like commercial release, but without the 48-88 rate pack.

about the preamp: just look to the user manual and/or vst analyzer. It is a preamp, not a saturator. Harmonics are REALLY loud but WEAK compared with crimson strip saturation.
A preamp when input is "+20" has harmonics around -50dB (so they are extremely loud). Using "adjust" you can reach -40dB.

but
the whole strip channel has harmonics around -10dB!!!
It happens because the internal strip gainstaing is adding 40dB of gain and more.

Yeah my bad i thought the preamp module would be the same as the one in the crimson section but it is the one in the Krampus section.

Thanks G

Hi guys,

I love the plugin so much but detected a problem.

I save the project in Nuendo 8.1 and once I close and load it again the channel with Crimson resets to different setting all the time. I need to dial them again every time. I use trial version. 64 bit vst. CRIMSONT. OSX 10.12.6
Preset name: Smashed and Anihilated. Using latest update.

While on other channels Crimson loads correctly. 4 Crimsons loaded in total.

Any clue what can be the problem?:)

Merry Xmas!
Denis

Trying to save preset and loading it again does not work as well.

All presets while loading reset to the preprogrammed from preset list.

Just tried VST in Ableton, same story.

AU in Ableton works fine, plugin state is recalled like it should. Crashed Ableton 2 times tho once clicking on plugin preset.

Correct behavior, presets in Crimson are read only, and host presets are not supported if are not in open format or host use a proprietary preset format.

But this does not answer the question why every time I open the project and all my tweaks are gone and it loads what he wants. None of your previous plugins and any other plugin in the world do this:)

I am also able to save the presets and recall in all other plugins.

So according to you every-time plugin loads its ok for him to forget the settings?:) It is an obvious bug.

Cheers
