I'm in a situation where I have to convert a multiband compressor VST plugin effect to an open source standalone application.

The effect contains (as I understand it) 4 bands. I haven't understood everything of it yet, but I want to convert this to an effect in Sox (I hope that Sox enables me to do that).

Here is a screenshot of the effect. I have clicked each band in the VST and then took a screenshot of the details that it displays, that's why it's 4 images:

Is it possible to re-create this effect using Sox?

  • SoX offers multi-band dynamic processing. See mcompand here : sox.sourceforge.net/sox.html You will need to check how to port your current parameters to Sox's ones. – audionuma Oct 11 at 13:49
