Something some people find disconcerting about me is that sometimes I'll 
totally freak out about something that might be taken as a given by 
others, as though I've discovered fire, just because it's dome something 
wonderful for me.

So...I'm going to freak out like I've discovered fire.

Don't ask me why it took me this long, but I just tried the parametric 
equalizer plugins from Calf.  WOW.  So this is the clean transparent mix 
I've been wanting forever.  In just a few minutes, I've been able to do 
things with this plugin that I couldn't achieve in hardware (and I've 
got a lot of hardware).  Whoever did this obviously knows more than most 
about how to write audio filter algorithms, because...wow.

Their Sourceforge page doesn't seem to list anywhere that one can 
donate, but I'm impressed enough that I would.  So, if any of you Calf 
audio plugin people are out there on LAU, just want to let you know I 
think your parametric EQ is worth paying for all by itself.

Ok...I'm done now.  :)

(Addendum:  Has anyone else besides me had trouble getting some plugins 
to same recallable presets?  You save, and then try to recall, and 
nothing happens.  Still, it saves its current settings in your project, 
and I suppose that's all that matters.)
