Sound Solution compressor in Winamp

Post by Glyn »

Slightly off-topic I know, but an important subject to get the best from any transmitter.

This plugin looks excellent with an AGC, 5 band and 2 band compressor, stereo expander and pre-emphasis. Looks like it could be the poor man's Optimod.

However it is very complex to set-up and whatever I try it always sounds far too "aggressive". It seems to have the functionality which should allow a nice loud sound without the artifacts of other simpler compressors.

Does anyone have any tips on how to set-up this compressor, or better still have the Sound Solution config file with a few option settings?

If you download the new version here:

http://www.zii.it/tms/

There are some really good "mild" settings.

I think this is a nice plugin, except that its preemphasis is terrible.

Norm,

you are again wandering far far away from the topic.

What uset to be a thread about the winamp plugin has now
become a self-serving rant about some haitian friends of yours
that nobody knows nothing about but you.

I will start deleting your posts again if this continues.

You're just not making any sense.

Thank you PCS, I thought I was the only one that didn't understand.

Back to Sound Sollution, anybody have problems with the quality of the preemphasis generator?

THANKS FOR THE COMPLEMENT

Post by Fleetinglimpse »

Asfar as i am concerned i can observe a tremendous amount of changes that are takeing place all over..Everyone seem to have been able to pursue their individual special interests..As i have said before i have yet to show any tangible proof of financial Gains for all the time that i have invested in contributeing to all these various forums..So obviously it is time to move on up the Ladder of success,so that i can become financially solvent..I ain't about to beg no one for a Job..i think that i have Marketed one of the Biggest on line Resumes there ever is.

So i have ran the full Gauntlet..I am happy to know that the goodness of my intentions have born fruit for others..Unconditional Giveing.

So i trust that your Compliments were made in good humour,because whenever anyone is Blasphemous against me,they are also committing acts of Blasphemy against other folks too,And in the Words of Mr. Geragos..The High Profile Law Attorney for Mr. Michael Jackson.."We will Land on you all like a Ton of Bricks"....Mr .GERAGOS WAS MAKEING REFERENCE TO THOSE FOLKS THAT HE CONSIDERED TO BE DENIGRATES AND HAVE PERSONALLY ATTACKED HIS CREDIBILITY.

So remember i am symbolically Stationed in the Heavens above preventing those that would like to "Land on you all denigrates like 1500 Tons of Bricks"..Hence i am about to withdraw myself from the scene since everyone thinks that i am Crazy.

Respects..Norm B. :x :x :x :x

Back to Sound Solution Plugin

Post by Glyn »

Scary stuff.

Yes I had noticed the pre-emphasis seemed a bit too bright. Of course you need to get the right pre-emph for your region - I can never remember which is which but I think it's 50us in UK and 75us in States - but could be the other way around.

I didn't understand all that stuff about malicious code - is that link with the new version of Sound Solutions OK, or will it destroy my computer?

Now if the software were packaged to look like a real optimod that would be cool - but may be some royalty issue I guess!

Yes, it is 50 in UK and 75 in US. It's not that Sound Solution is too bright, it's just distroted.

THAT IT REALLY DOES NOT MATTER TO ME ANYMORE WHATEVER THEY SCRIPT YOU TO SAY BRO'.

IT WAS A PITY THAT SOMEONE COULD NOT SCRIPT THE POINT THAT I WAS TRYING TO MAKE RE THE WASHINGTON SNIPER SCENARIO..I ANNOUNCED BACK THEN THAT "I THOUGHT THAT THE SNIPER MIGHT BE OF A "WHITE" ROOTS AND CULTURE"

THE CLOSEING ARGUMENTS ON THAT PROPHECY...WELL THE POINT I WAS TRYING TO MAKE THERE WAS THAT IT TAKES A CERTAIN KINDA PERSON TO BE ABLE TO SEE BEYOND THE COLOUR OF ONES SKIN.

POINT:..THE CHIEF OF POLICE THAT WAS THE HEAD OF THE SEARCH AND FIND WAS OF THE BLACK ROOTS AND CULTURE..MARRIED TO A "WHITE" ROOTS AND CULTURE.....COULD IT BE THAT MAYBE HE WAS 'SHORTSIGHTED' DUE TO A COLOUR FACTOR,THAT PREVENTED HIM AND HIS DEPT FROM SOLVEING THE CASE EARLIER,WHICH COULD HAVE SAVED LIVES???THINK ABOUT IT FOLKS.

Respects..Norm B

:lol: Hummm, Strange people live in here....The force is weak within him....Anyway about sound solution. I have downloaded and having a play with it at the moment. If anyone has managed to sort a decent setup could you please e-mail to me - you can do this by going to your winamp directory (on your computer) and you will find some ss#.dat files these are the sound solution preset files. If you open these in notepad the first thing you will see is the name - this will help you identify it.

If I manage to get to grips with it and sort a nice preset i will post on here.
I have removed my e-mail address due to spam through this forum!!! please now use:
simon (at) dreamtechnologies (dot) co (dot) uk

May the force be with you.

Thanks for the new link. Just remember to rename the .exe to .dll if it doesn't install. (It did that to me)
