Plugins VST sous Audirvana

Bonjour,

Je voulais communiquer un moyen de contourner l’absence de prise en charge de plugins VST par Audirvana. Ne voulant pas payer $30 et au-delà pour un plugin VST3 d’égaliseur paramétrique pour corriger mes écouteurs, j’ai acheté l’hôte de plugin Kushview Element ($2), qu’Audirvana a reconnu. Ensuite, j’ai chargé dans KE le plugin au format simple VST ReaQ de Reaper que j’avais déjà. Parfois l’affichage dans Audirvana bogue (la fenêtre de plugin file vers le haut) mais sinon tout marche (et surtout sonne) parfaitement bien. Sinon j’ai essayé la version gratuite de Toneboosters, plugin intéressant et fonctionnel, mais ils n’ont pas un de mes modèles d’écouteurs.

Voilà pour ce petit retour d’expérience.

Hi @Goelette, my English is better than my French, and still I am not sure. It seems that Element either costs $2 per month or $2 for 7 days?!

Yes, it’s a strange rate structure, it simply means you get updates, I’m not sure for what, with the subscription. Otherwise you just pay $2 once, which still gets you the “updates” for 7 days. I’m guessing those might be more important for other users.

Hi @Goelette, being away does not mean I was not interested in the topic. Did I understand you correctly that you loaded ReaQ the Reaper in KE? What does this do in terms of equalizing the sound? Does the software need to know your speaker type? I presume you need a microphone for measuering? Can you inform me a little about it? Thx!

ReaQ is VST2 so not recognized by Audirvana. I use KE, VST3, as an envelope for it to “fool” Audirvana into accepting ReaQ. Then ReaQ can be launched, set up and used as any EQ.
I use it for headphones, based on presets on Github. For my speakers, I have an AVR and use Audyssey for now.

ah, I see! Thanks @goelette, I will have to read more about room control, again another world! :crazy_face:
