Something odd, all the machine names have " | 00" appended to them. Assuming it's not ASCII art. :lol:
That's the pattern number (the | separating the machine name and the pattern #)

History of trackers (feat Buzz)

You may have already seen this (100k views in just one day is quite impressive for such a niche topic) but a superb 40 minute history of trackers, from C64 through to Amiga and PC. Buzz makes a fleeting appearance towards the end - the machine view layout looked like it came from quite a solid user,...

Re: new pvst beta (updated 25-Oct-2021)

Re: Where can I find the newest Index for machines?

*super necro bump* Curious to know if there are any index's that are still getting updated. Comparing my current index.txt from the ones available I think I'm using the 'wizenwet' index from 2006 as it seemed the most logical in its categorisation for my workflow. So given the date you can imagine I...

Re: fsex300.ttf

You'll need to load up a 'blank' version of Polac VSTi 1.1 in machine view. Then Right click -> Preferences -> Global 2 and in the bottom right click Clean Up and on the top right click Full Rescan. If Buzz breaks again on load you'll know that it's one of your VSTs that causing it (as mentioned ear...

It seems to be coming from buzz engine 32 is hanging it doesn't mention a plugin. The Polac's x64 -> 32bit bridge can definitely handle large Kontakt libraries - Just ...

Re: fsex300.ttf

fsex300.ttf is a variant of the fixedsys font (filename is short for 'Fixedsys Excelsior v3.00') Looking at the install time on my machine it syncs up when I first installed Buzz x86 on here. I think it's the default font used in Pattern View (and maybe sequence view ?) so if it's not available then...

and then tried DiscoDSP OB-XD 1.5 (VST2) Wait ... you're right. I'd been using the TAL 64bit instruments as my testbed but just tried OBXD ( Windows 64bit/vst2 build ) and the preset menu doesn't appear at all/flickers super quickly so you barely see it. In this instance I know that it definitely u...

Re: Flickering drop-down menus in PVST & 64-bit VST2 plugins

Are both instruments and effects still flickering for you? As River Cricket mentions above, it seems like the VST instrument side of things has been fixed (at least for JUCE built plugins) but not for VST effects.

That's great news - Though presumably it'll only be fixed for those JUCE plugins where/if the author decides to recompile their plugins using this new framework version

Re: Copy machine settings to a pattern

I thought there used to be a copy-button on it to do that, but is seems to be gone. Wait ... you're totally right! Completely forgotten about that despite using it frequently on 'old' buzz. Yeah the 'Copy' button used to be at the top of the machine parameter screen: https://buzzwiki.robotplanet.dk...
