Re: Surge

Yup, that's what I did first: Having the VST3 in that folder. And yes, I also have that folder added to polac's set of VST paths.

I just wanted confirmation whether a 64 bit VST3 plugin ending with ".vst3" has been known to work with polac or not.

Re: Plugins called .vst3

Just be absolute certain... are 64 bit VST3 plugins that have a file name ending with .vst3 supposed to work in 32 bit buzz using the wrapper? I'm trying to get it to work on my computer, but they don't show up. I tried making a copy of the .vst3 file called .dll which then shows up, but it won't lo...

Re: Juce plugins in bridged mode (pvst)

I did have trouble with that, and I forgot to write down what I did. Doh!!

But maybe all that was missing was to add "C:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3" to the VST directories list in the "Global 2" tab of pvst?

PS: The Pianoteq plugin also has trouble with the drop-downs when in bridged mode.

Re: new pvst beta (updated 27-Dec-2020)

I'm continuing my wrongly titled thread in here, as it seems relevant. The problem with loading a bmx and some VSTs not recalling their parameter states correctly seems to be well known across different DAWs. Here are some horribly crappy "solutions" which includes a race condition: https://forum.ju...

Re: EnvelopeBlock

I just tried this again, and it's great! There's still a tiny little oddity that feels a bit like a bug: The automation curve points don't understand what the mouse is doing if the pattern below is selected. Could this be addressed somehow? Like, the 2nd automation from the top here can't be reached...

Re: Juce plugins in bridged mode (pvst)

Yes, I just noticed! :o Maybe this is another Juce related problem? Then again, I don't recall any of my own Juce based plugins failing this way. I tried logging using Process Monitor while the preset bug happened, but it generated 800000 events, and the few things that I was able to find, that look...

Re: Juce plugins in bridged mode (pvst)

Wow, thanks for the quick response. I haven't tested Undo though (believe it or not, but i rarely use undo). However, I think I've found out in which cases the problem occurs: If I load one instance of Plasmonic, closing the "pvst" window also closes Plasmonic. But if I have two or more instances of...

I don't know the format of the file so I tried this, but I don't really see any difference: <?xml version="1.0" ?> <PVST Version="1000"> <Global> <Settings Plugin_Path="C:\Program Files (x86)\Audio\Buzz\Gear\Vst;C:\Program Files (x86)\Steinberg\VSTplugins;" Ladspa_Path="C:\Program Files (x86)\Audio\...

Re: Juce plugins in bridged mode (pvst)

Yup, but it only works about half of the times. I often end up with a "stuck" plugin open, and re-opening the corresponding pvst doesn't seem to "catch" it. Once stuck, always stuck.

I guess it's actually the Juce people who need to do something about this.

Juce plugins in bridged mode (pvst)

When running Juce plugins like Valhalla SuperMassive or Rhizomatic Plasmonic, the drop-down menus appear for a fraction of a second and then disappears again before you can make a selection. This is a known bug: https://github.com/juce-framework/JUCE/issues/401 So having read up on the problem, I fo...

Re: AMD Rysen worth it

In the rare cases where I run out of CPU, the scenario is always the same: One plugin eating up 1 core (and thus giving choppy playback), and all the other cores are doing pretty much nothing. This means I already have enough cores, but I need a CPU with a faster single-threaded performance! So when...

Re: EnvelopeBlock

It's ctrl-click. But it works only if you have one parameter visible. Ahh, that's why I didn't find out. I added 3 curves to begin with. I think this feature might be on my wish list: That it works when more than one curve is visible. It should probably just pick the closest one. Yeah these have be...

Tip: Automating a VST

In case someone is wondering how to automat a VST parameter, here's how: 1) On one of the tracks of the VST, select the parameter to be automated by entering its number on the first row in the song. 2) Right-click the automation EnvBlock pattern, select the same VST and make sure you're automating t...

Re: BMX Metadata?

I think changing anything in the bmx format right now would be risky. Any change would certainly need to be both backwards and forwards compatible, and whether that's even possible depends on how the bmx format works internally - something I don't know. It does seem to be a chunk based format like I...

Is this what I think it is? Proper automation? :dance: I've wanted this for many many years! THANK YOU! Okay, so I installed EnvBlock and the modern sequence editor (1.0.8), but I don't see the same right-click menu as on the anim gif. I just get this: (Left side of screenshot: Yours. | Right side o...

Cool, I'll upload it. Forums are such horrible places to store things, and search for things.

PS: I need to rewrite the entire upload system, which ended up being really weird. More weird than the login system. Meanwhile, I can upload machines for whoever needs it.
