Just out of interest, when did this become a fact?

IIRC Fons suggested the sc4 compressor algorithm was similar to a vocoder.
Apart from the multiband parametric, limiter and overall ui development
that are also part of the jamin experience, I have never heard anything
coming out of jamin that sounds remotely like a vocoder.

I have also not heard of any other jack application that attempts to
provide a complete mastering tool chain.

So, I'm not sure why jamin is now to be considered passe.

Of course if someone else actually wrote something that was comparable in
functionality then I would be more than interested to hear the results.

But until that time jamin still stands as the only tool in it's class that
I know of.
