How To – Batch processing with MrsWatson (by Teragon audio) and FLUX:: plugins

All Flux:: plugins can be setup for batch processing using MrsWatson, a command-line audio plugin host supporting VST 2.x plugins.

  • First you need to create a user preset in the Flux:: plug-in preset manager (not the host preset manager) that you want to use for the batch processing, this can be done using your favorite audio host software.

  • In the Flux:: plug-in preset manager (not the host preset manager), navigate to the User preset tab, select the preset, then click “Set as default”.

  • Then close your audio host application.

How to setup a proper command line:

1 – Enter the mrswatson64 application path.
You can drag the application directly into the command or terminal window (then you don’t have to type the path manually).

Exemple in Windows:

Exemple in macOS:

     /Users/myusername/Desktop/MrsWatson-0.9.7Mac\ OS\ X/mrswatson64

2 – Indicate the Flux VST 64-bit install path

Exemple in Windows:

–plugin-root “c:\Program Files\Vstplugins\Flux\LevelMagic.vst\Contents\x64”

Exemple in macOS:

–plugin-root /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST/Flux

3 – Indicate the input file path for the file you want to process.

Exemple in Windows:

-i C:\Users\myusername\Desktop\myaudiofile.wav

Exemple in macOS:

-i /Users/myusername/Desktop/myaudiofile.wav

4 – Indicate the output file path for the processed file.

Exemple in Windows:

-o C:\Users\myusername\Desktop\out.wav

Exemple in macOS:

-o /Users/myusername/Desktop/out.wav

5 – Indicate the plugin(s) to be used.

Exemple in Windows:

-p LevelMagic

Exemple in macOS:

-p LevelMagic-x64

6 – In the end, the full command line will look like this:

Exemple in Windows :

C:\Users\myusername\Desktop\MrsWatson\MrsWatson-0.9.7\Windows\mrswatson64.exe –plugin-root “c:\Program Files\Vstplugins\Flux\LevelMagic.vst\Contents\x64” -i C:\Users\myusername\Desktop\myaudiofile.wav -o C:\Users\myusername\Desktop\out.wav -p LevelMagic

Exemple in macOS:

/Users/myusername/Desktop/MrsWatson-0.9.7Mac\ OS\ X/mrswatson64 –plugin-root /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST/Flux -i /Users/myusername/Desktop/myaudiofile.wav -o /Users/myusername/Desktop/out.wav -p LevelMagic-x64

7 – Type return key and wait for the processing to end.
