More testing of Mantis..
When saving a Project in with N4 - Mantis the plugin dialog loose its GUI and loads into default VST parameter dialog box when re-loaded

Best
Mmh... Please specify: which DAW, OS/bits..?

Here everything works as expected (Win10/Reaper64b).
I've been using Mantis for months and never had such a problem.

Hi, just a quick heads-up.

I'm currently publishing on the Tube a few demo videos showing Mantis doing its thing on various sources.

For the time being, I've uploaded a Master Bus demo and a Drum Subgroup demo.

Other videos will follow shortly.
Since I'm quite a newbie in this peculiar visual art, any suggestion is mostly welcome!

Good stuff SteDal.

MANTIS continues as an excellent, so easy to setup and work with compressor.

Nice how it brings the background up into the mix, providing essential BODY to a Mix.

MANTIS has earned the place on most every Mastering session I've had since its' release.
I often have it doing 1dB of compression ... sometimes more. I just like how easy it is to setup the 'rhythmic' compression action.

It just performs with the Track in such a complimentary manner.

Nice to hear it in action on a Drum Bus. I don't get to work with those elements much now ... kinda miss that part of Mix Engineering.

Mantis should be essential in anyone's arsenal.
