Just goes to show you can't please everyone: I almost commented that for
me it would make sense if the shelving filters and a single band EQ were
available separately too. But at this point it's dancing on a pin about
workflow -- the functionality is there and looks promising.

Of these I think the expander/gate is probably the most obvious basic
bread-and-butter style plugin that's missing, though I'd love to see the
other two at some point too.

Of course more core plugins can be added later so there is probably wisdom in
concentrating on getting the first wave of them right in terms of sound and
feature set before adding more.

Thanks again to the Ardour developers for this. It's a really positive step
forward for Ardour I think.
