LinuxDSP is a top notch DSP guy and developer. He is clearly trying to help the sapista. Relax.

That said, I can't wait until sapista clears a few more hurdles so I can add this to my plugin FAV list.

When Paul starts placing linuxdsp's comments and posts in the Hall of Shame then we'll know linuxdsp went a bit too far, but for now I think linuxdsp has done a great job in creating pro-studio level plugins and fx for the linux world, personally I have not purchased anything from him except for the Pultec EQ (I buy things as I go along with my needs), and I can say the damn thing works amazingly well, and I think it's awesome to see someone like him with his knowledge and who charges for his products to help someone like sapista with his free version of a parametric EQ, and I'm sure sapista is thankful also.

My two cents:

Been away for far too long from the (amateur) music prod. My home studio is gathering a bit of dust and I had to move it to our living-dining-room ... my young kids are playing with my cables and gear buttons and they have ALL (or most of) my time. But I still keep an eye on the open-source evolution in audio s/w, still keep the flame burning for creating my own music with my platform of choice (linux) and in this, linuxdsp has become a MUST for DAW work under linux, by the sheer quality of his plugins.

And in case you don't know it, linuxdsp means

Linux Damn' Sweet Plugins

and if I can help advertise his biz by praising his products on this or that forum, I just do it.

@Boesmann: The post you seem to be refering to was not an attempt to promote my software and I don't understand how it could be perceived as such. It was a question directed to Ben because he appeared to be proposing a change to the current Mixbus / plugin distribution model, which would directly affect (the commercial value of) an agreement I already have with Harrison, and I was surprised to see an announcement in a / this thread on a public forum without there being some formal terms and conditions / SDK etc in place which would apply to all developers wishing to have their software included with Mixbus (before such an announcement was made).

That post was justified IMHO only because of the way the "calling all DSP developers" post was made, and if I had a contract with said company I also would have been taken aback by it.

Also, I don't see linuxDSP "spamming" thru-out the forum (you want to see what that really is, hit the Reaper forum and look for all the IK pot shots), it seemed like an honest comparison for 2 reasons...

1. They both are the only 2 graphical EQ's that work in a similar way in the Linux world AFAIK

2. The sound of the linuxDSP Black EQ, which I have heard, justify's the comparison to help make the EQ10Q the best it can be.

I, for one, applauded the effort to help out!

I've got exactly the same problem than the others, for the GUI with Mixbus 2.2( grid scale problem).

Please let us know when a new version is ready!

Good job!

With Ardour 3.0.0~svn13975:
- EQ10Q open correctly the first time only. After closing the window, it did the same "gui-bug" as with mixbus.

Another strange things about the presets save (not the "save to file"):
-can't save "Q" parameter. It always go to defaut (2)(also with load from file)
-When I load a preset and modify it, if I want to save the new 'version', it don't realy do it. Some value are changed.
