      Does Edius crash with these VSTs? When I started using Edius, I had maybe 20 VSTs and it would crash frequently. The Canopus fix was to remove all the VSTs, including SoundSoap. It never crashed after that. I have tried SoundSoap alone, even the 2.1 full version, and the preview skips and stutters badly and eventually crashes. It also crashed just having the VSTs in the Edius folder, not being used in the project. I'd love to find some VSTs that are not guarenteed to take Edius down. I currently take the audio out to Vegas, fix it up and bring it back to Edius.

        I don't know if anyone kept a copy of it, but the old forum had a thread where people posted VST plugins that were confirmed working in Edius. Sorry, but I don't have it. Anyone?

          i made a test last summer in the canopus forum with circa. 80 VST plug-ins in Edius 2.51. There was only one brand of VST plugs who did not appear in the list resp. could not open in Edius, that was the WAVES 4.0 with the L2 Ultramaximizer.

          here the list of the favorits:

          Voxengo GlissEq Vst, essential stuff at this site,
          probably the best pro plugs available today for a fair price.
          Discover and download paid and free VST plugins, AU plugins, AAX audio plugins, mastering plugins, equalizer plugins, compressor plugins.

          T-RackS® Plug-in Analog Modeled Mastering Plug-Ins,
          very good EQ, compressor, limiter. This is my personal favorite.

          PSP Vintage Warmer, excellent maximizer! good prices.

          TLAudio EQ, warm EQ.

          Ohmforce PlugIns, far out stuff!
          Delay, Distortion, Filters and other audio plugins for the Live, Pro tools, Cubase, Logic and many other DAW users. Praised by Depeche Mode, the Chemical Brothers, Skrillex and quite a few other half famous college artists.

          GRM Tools Classics, special purpose VST's

          this are VST .dll which can be copied from WaveLab direct to Edius plug folder:
          Noise Gate.dll
          Peak Master.dll

          just ask questions, i'm a audio engineer...

          this is the VST thread from last summer:

          Normalisation with VST plug-in is by pricipe not available. Normalisation is a offline render process. That means the WAV file gets processed that the loudest peak is 0.0 dBFs.
          The process to achieve more loudness with a VST Plug-In is Dynamics (Compressor/Limiter), sometimes called maximizing.

          Free plugs for maximizing in professional quality are:

          Classic Compressor by Kjaerhus

          Compressor Limiter Gate by mda

          Note: VSTi (VST instruments) do no work with Edius. The VSTi are musical instruments made to use with sequencing software
          Version 2.51 does not work well VST plug-ins.
          I did test the VST plug-in back then with version 2.5 and 2.51. The progaming of the VST engine in Edius was not finished. The graphic of the opened plug-ins crashes and the program stands still.

          I can not tell you more, since i have not upgraded to v3.22 yet. I still use v2.51.
          Till Edius is capable for handling 24p and 23.976p, i have to use a other video application.

          I prepare all audio for video in WaveLab5 or Nuendo and re-import the fixed audio to the video applications.

          But sure, the fixing of audio in the video application itself is the future.

          WaveLab Lite: if you find the mentioned .dll in the folder you can copy them. Don't worry, if one dll is not compatible nothing will happen.

          In general VST .dll can be copied from other applications.
          The dll is the program. If they work, they appear in the list otherwise not, or a error message comes during start, nothing more.
          removing ambience is not possible. In case you wanna try anyhow, use a gate who closes on the reverb/ambience tail.

          One of the best pump up the volume VST plug-in is:
          L2 Ultramaximizer
          L3 Ultramaximizer or
          L3 Ultramaximizer
          from WAVES
          The advantage of this one is, it can look ahead in the data so no clipping can occour in case a strong peak is ahead.
          Advanced level maximizer, look-ahead peak limiter and high-resolution re-quantizer, all in one powerful industry-standard plugin for mastering and mixing.

          a cheaper alternative is the Vintage Warmer mentioned above or any Compressor/Limiter
