Variety Of Sound has released a public beta of version 1.5 of FerricTDS, a free compression effect plug-in for Windows.
This version is not backward compatible and should be installed seperately to the 1.0.2 release (new plug-in ID is provided therefore). It should not be used in any actual production or performance due to the beta status and potential further issues and changes.
