Graham at GVST has announced the launch of the GVST on the Mac Kickstarter project, a chance to help fund Mac ports and enhancements.
I’ve had many requests over the years to offer Mac versions of the GVST plug-ins, and recently I’ve had more interest than ever.
I happen to be unemployed at the moment, which means that I have the opportunity to take this project on. However, I don’t own a Mac, and I have a few bills that I ought to keep paying, which is where you come in.
I’ve set a funding target of £3,500, which will buy me a basic MacBook and tide me over long enough to get the GVST plug-ins working on the Mac platform.
It’s important to note that GVST is a freeware enterprise and the resulting Mac plug-ins will be available as freeware for everybody to use. As a backer you can help to make this happen, but I’m not offering exclusive access to the software. I will of course keep all backers up-to-date with my progress. I don’t know if that’s a palatable proposition, but I suppose that’s what I’m here to find out.
The project is aiming to raise £3,500 GBP by March 9th, 2014.

The plug-ins from GVST now can be skinned with a new gorgeous design.
GVST’s plug-ins (by Graham Yeadon) are designed by to be simple, light-weight and efficient, although some are more ambitious and some more experimental and include amongst others a Chorus, Compressor, Delay, Gate and several Filter effects.
The new skins are done by Rick Christy from Designer Monkey, who also did the original design for the GVST plug-in suite, and recently designed FreeAmp2‘s skin.
Check the GVST website for more information and links to download these excellent skins for the GVST effects and instruments. You can download all plug-ins in one package as well.
GStereo is the M/S processor used in GMulti
From the GMulti page:
The stereo enhancement works by amplifying or diminishing the stereo information in each band. If you set a Width parameter to 0% then the associated band is collapsed to mono, which is often desirable for the bass band.
