Recently I was moving a dot in the Calf 5-band EQ and it crashed Ardour
4.4.  It's ridiculous.  So I'm switching to Harrisson and Overtone
plugins.  Might as well spend something and get stability.  I still use
your 4-band parametric EQ though, which I find very useful and had no
SW problems with.  

As a side note, it could be nice if Ardour's plugin dialog box would
include the creator name in its filter.

Any problem reports regarding the Overtone plugins ?  Surely would be
nice to have the plugin window fit exactly the plugin space instead of
taking 4 times wider.
