what is going on with the new band splitter?!

i just tried the new Band Splitter RE

it changes the sound in a really bad way even if you don't apply any proccess..even if everything is set to 0.0 db..

its driving me crazy.. if i want to build a precision multiband compressor it's impossible to do so with this tool.
i dont want to change the sound of my tracks just by putting this device on

i checked it by taking a track, putting the splitter and use only the input->sum, and then duplicated the track and removed the splitter from the duplicated track
and then i reversed the phase

the two signals are really different
when you change the Slope setting, it gets worse.

from the RE description:
"Unlike other splitters, Yoko is specially designed to ensure a “flat sum” crossover for each frequency band, meaning it won’t add unwanted filtering to your sound"

really bad stuff

Just by looking at their GUI, you can see its completely unprofessionnal, it guess it sounds as bad as it looks

Yeah I've noticed when putting it on a kick drum the kick can loose most of its punch and have a hollow sound about it. Most noticeable with the 48 and 72 Slope settings.

Glad to see I'm not the only one being bothered by this issue, I really didn't expect a dedicated band-splitting device to cause so much phase-shifting ! At least the stereo imager doesn't do this ...

I must say I do not encounter this issue.
I made a patch and uploaded it.
its a drumloop going through yoko into a mixer.
took the sum output and put it through a thor set to input -100
individual outs go unprocessed into the 14:2 same as the inverted sum.
when oressing play I din't hear any sound at all.
Not even the slightest bit of sound with my speakers and Subwoofer turned up all the way.
try the patch and see if you hear something. If so this would be a serious bug.
I find this device to be amazing.
lets make it better
cheers
