Desaster Development ZapFilter^2 VST2.0-Fx Plugin
« on: March 16, 2024, 10:33:42 AM »

The ZapFilter^2 VST2.0-Fx Plugin is a very powerful filter-box with two
filter-engines and a distortion/saturator unit.

You'll love the warm sound and the groovy sweeps it can create.
Also very, very nice for live-play: Switch presets ultrafast with
your midi-keyboard and modulate the filters via modwheel.

v1.6 specifications :

- Two seperate stereo filter units with 15 switchable filter
algorithms with serial/parallel routing
- host-bpm syncable bipolar LFO->Cutoff modulation per
filter-unit (tri, sqr, sin, saw)
- Envelope Follower per filter-unit with Amount(bipolar)/
Attack/Release and tight/relaxed sensing with sidechain option
- Saturation/Distortion unit with drive/shape control
- 16 programs
- Internal Preset Manager with
  - copying/pasting of presets
  - automatable preset-switching via VST Read/Write Automation
  - saving/loading of standard .fxp/.fxb preset-/bankfiles
- custom default bank loading at startup
- Unique FreeEnv-Controller to draw Freq->Volume graphs
- Full VST-automation support of all parameters
- Program switching via MIDI-Note-On (Midi Ch.15)
(will also reset LFOs in sync)
- Cutoff-Modulation via Midi CC's
- Link-Mode for Cutoff1/2 (with offset)
- 4 vu-meters for Input/Output and output of each filter
- final output limiter
- comes with 5 preset banks (80 ready to use presets)

Big big credits go to:

DubJay, who did the MAC port.

All the cool people who participated in collecting all the filter-algos and
routines on the musicdsp archive.
( http://www.musicdsp.org/ )
Many thanks especially to bram for maintaining this superb knowledge-base.
The source code of the filter part of this plug will also available soon,
to play around with the filter-algos and to add new algos.

What is the point of posting DEMOs?

it has never been touched and belongs to those "last 10" which required treatment.

when i remember right, it has a custom SN protection. or we could contact the rightholder.

My understanding is that it uses the scheme where you are allowed to download crippled demo with important functions diabled, i.e. not compiled in. For the fully functional version download you are re-directed to some payment site.
Code: [Select]
DEMO Restrictions:
------------------

- saving/loading of programs disabled
- saving of parameters with song disabled
- full version comes with 4 preset-banks (= 64 presets)

If members here consider that kind software valuable, I can 'spam' the forum with similar crap in no time ;)

EDIT. Back in the glory OS7-9 days, in places that I visited, you were explicitly prohibited from uploading demo stuff. You could even get booted for doing so. Either provide fully working solution or nothing at all.
