Perfect :)
I will have to do some testing.

I am using the new LMMS equalizer on a few tracks to cut the low end from the bass, to make room for the kicks.

The sound getting softer does not seem to appear here. :o
Off course ;)
I have used easy Q in Vestige.

It works fine, but I do have a problem after an wine update.
Then lmms says it can´t find easy Q.

I then have to browse again to the easy Q dll.

So its possible.

When I type download LMMS, I get other sites listed first.
It's worth a try, but on Linux its not when loading a vst, that bug happens after a while were both the vst and lmms at first worked fine. Then suddenly the lmms gui goes on strike, were the vst gui, is still working. I had opened up a bug report that got closed recently, because the devs found out ...
Congrats :)
