      Well done and well deserved. Keep up the good work, Damien. Looking forward to the plug-in support: Papa needs some digital room correction.

      Indeed, to those of you had tried A+ in the past and settled on some other s/w for Mac playback, I urge you to give version 1.4.6 a spin. Use "integer Mode 1" and the iZotope upsampling engine (set to "Powers of 2" upsampling). It may be hard to go back after that. I have a great system, but A+ has been a total game changer for me.

      Even support for a single AU (at a time) would be a huge plus for a great player.

      Consolation prize: 5-band (or more) PEQ.

      @Bob (untangle): All programs I've seen that support AU plugins support multiple plugins, so I presume A+ 1.5 will too. To get N-band PEQ, you can cascade N instances of a 1-band PEQ plugin, such as the one built into OS X.

      Chris,

      Please 'translate' (or Prof. Scott) for the non full English speaking members.

      Thanks,

      He only calls me "Prof." when I am in trouble.

      For the record, I am a HUGE Audirvana fan.

      I'm trying to learn English abbreviations, Professor. For example, sometimes is hard to me to follow: BTW, BS, WTF, FYEO, etc. etc. If I translate this to my mom (still alive) she could punish me. I was also (years light ago) a Professor, for Financial Analysis in the U.C.R. (my country main state university), and I was very proud when my students called me "Profe", the abbreviation for an "Profesor" in Spanish. Now I'm only a humble Bonsai Master, or trying to be..., but please don't call me Ma!

      Hello Damien,
      Since 1.4.5 I'm a big fan, and now with 1.4.6 it's even better.
      Congrads!
