It's been available in the RE shop for a while already, but I never seen it - looks very useful! :thumbs_up:

What I'd like to see in future versions:
- more CV options on the back, especially for cutoffs and gain,
- M/S signal paths and ability to filter them individually

Hi!
I'm the dev in question :)

I opted against CV inputs for two reasons:
- making the place for this device clear: a static trimmer, especially useful for recordings, to balance level and rough frequency content before applying any "real processing" (think EQ, compression, reverb etc.)
- performance (though it would only make a tiny difference)

M/S could be useful but I see that as belonging more in the "actual mixing/mastering" category which I would not put this device into. However just a M/S encoder/decoder could be useful for M/S miking techniques.

I get that, thanks! But typically when I think of Reason devices, they're multi-purpose with additional features available via CV/audio sockets in the back, hence my request. But obviously ultimately it's your decision :)

Here is my all two hands up for cv in for filter cutoffs.

I used omega in my last song maybe on half instruments to trim lows and highs, but i used it too like highpass/ lowpass filter. I think that external modulation could make it really great creative unit.
Nevermind, i think i will use omega even without this cv slots, but it would be great.
