[Ardour-Users] call for feedback -- basic set of bundled plugins

Fellow Ardouristas,

We've recently taken the last hurdle to include a basic set of DSP with
Ardour itself: Damien Zammit of zamaudio volunteered to curate and
maintain a set of cross-platform plugins upstream.

Yet one last step remains: Once we start shipping these plugins the
sound and exposed parameters should not change. And who's better for QA
than users who will actually use them?

Please grab a http://nightly.ardour.org/ build (or compile latest git
and) let us know what you think and if you deem these plugins adequate
for a basic workflow. Bonus points for a mix done entirely with a-* plugins.

* a-Compressor

Mono/Stereo compressor with optional Sidechain input.
Based on zamComp.

* a-Delay

A non-feedback delay with optional BPM sync and low-pass filter.
Based on zamDelay

* a-EQ

A 4 Band Equalizer with hi/low shelf using SVF Filters (inspired by
Andrew Simper).

* a-High/Low Pass Filter

A standard 12,24,36,48 dB/octave High/Low pass.

* a-Reverb

A Schroeder Reverberator.
