    Steve, if you'll give me some pointers on how to add OSC control for
a parameter I can take a shot at implementing it.  I've got a pretty
good handle on how to control all of the parameters I'm just not that
familiar with OSC.  I also don't think we should add MIDI control.  If
we have OSC for all the parameters it can be done externally.

    You'd have to band-limit prior to compressing to get the same effect
wouldn't you?
