Ok. I see.

I have liblrdf-0.3.7 and the swh-plugins-0.4.13.
Do you think problem in liblrdf?

I have read about gates, compressors etc in the perfect book of Paul White's "20 Tips on Home Mastering", so I know what meaning "treshhold", "attack", "hold" etc.
I was processed my voice record yesterday -- all noise created by my cheapest microphone sucessfully muted between phrases. And i wrote -- "plugin is working" in my previous letter.
One that confused me is always bypassed plugin if you touch "Output Select". May be it is really caused by liblrdf, i don't know...

It is very interesting :) I'll try to hear it :)

>Happy gating, Wolfgang
Truly yours, Oleg Ivanenko aka Ash
