Hi Mark,

Hope you're doing well.

The item that prompted my posting was one in which the performance of DX/VST
plugins under Windows was compared unfavorably with JAMin under Linux.  I
didn't get the impression that the poster was discussing mastering tools,
but I suppose that's possible.

Some users who may look at JAMin and think it's supposed to be a plugin 
rather than appreciate that it was specifically designed for something 
else, despite the fact that it's displaying a representation of a
real-time 1024-point FFT, or so it would seem.


Designing a mastering tool as a plugin may have a slight advantage for
ease-of-use, but it seems to me a relatively larger disadvantage in
that the interface would have to follow plugin restrictions, which
may be rather limiting.  I like the JAMin developers' design here.

Philicordia mentioned using JAMin on submixes.  I think that's great; but
I'm sure he knows exactly what the tool actually is.  I also appreciate his
mentioning that because that's often where I have problems.  That 3-D reverb
stuff I'm working on acts almost like an expander on certain material.  Under
certain conditions, it also acts as a low-pass filter.

Best regards,
