  1. Fantastic plugin! Never owned an Original VC-10 but that thing sounds great and definitely vintage. Plus so much tweakability and little extra stuff added (like the ability to use it as a fixed filter bank!). This guy should be charging for such quality work. I’m definitely going to donate.

  2. Didnโ€™t get it to work within Cubase 10. Iโ€™ll look into the details later and try again. It did however try to blow my speakers on start-up. I have no problem paying for this if itโ€™s close to what I expect. The GUI could be a tad bigger thoโ€™

  3. Looks like there’s an update already available. “* fixed side chaining issues for some hosts” I’ll try this again. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I can confirm it now works nicely in Cubase 10. What a nice thing!! The 20 band editor is ace! Move over Kraftwerk. ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ll send them some cash. ๐Ÿ™‚
