See this post for details on the linuxaudio list.
The suite currently consists of the following plugins:
zamulticomp (LV2 only)
zamulticomp is a multiband compressor plugin based on ZamComp which gives a flat response even with the crossover filters active (so long as the crossover points are not set too close together). This plugin may be useful in mastering.
zamcompexp (LV2 only)
zamcompexp is a plugin based on ZamComp that includes an expander section in addition to the compressor. It could be used for slight gating of noise.
zamcomp is the flagship of the zam* suite, it is a hardcore compressor plugin that adds real beef to a mix. I have been told it sounds like dbx outboard gear when applied to drum transients. You can listen to a sample here where the first sound is unaffected by the plugin, and the second and third sounds are with two different settings of zamcomp applied to the dry sound:
zameq2 is a dual parametric equaliser with highshelf and lowshelf filters as well as highpass and lowpass optional filters built in. It uses Orfanidis’ decramped filters which behave more like analogue filters than other filters (such as standard RBJ filters).
zamvalve is a tube warmth plugin. There are two versions of this plugin: one chews a lot of cpu but sounds amazing (git checkout zamvalve),
zamautosat (LADSPA only)
zamautosat is a gentle automatic saturator without any controls. It can be applied safely to any channel for boosting quiet sounds and lowering sounds that are too loud for the channel.
(Thanks to naptastic for the algorithm!)
All of the above plugins are under development but a stable release 2.1 is available for download from github, requiring the LADSPA & LV2 SDKs to be installed as well as faust, pkg-config and lv2-c++-tools.
