I’ve decided to give this functionality a try wanting to record a guitar played 75 km away from me.
There’s a Windows10 Pro on both ends installed on the lap tops (mine Core i5/6GB, his Core i7/8GB).
I run Cubase 9.5 Pro, the other guy installed latest VST Performer downloaded from Steinberg.
I tried to follow the instruction:
- New empty project
- VST Cloud -> VST Connect SE
Here I’ve found the first difference to the instruction: the Add Talkback option is greyed out
Checked the routing, saw that talckback is correctly routed to the Mic input of the interface and decided to try to connect with the other guy.
We logged in, found one another, sent/accepted friendship requests.
Here’s where something went wrong: when me or him tried Connect to a friend nothing happened. I continued to see myself on the screen and he just saw him. No error messages, no nothing. Is there a log somwhere that I can check or send to the support?
Assuming that this means that connection was not established we sent some time going through the steps from the begining with no success.
At some point we realised that the applications on both ends perform rather slowly. For me it took 10 sec or more to switch between Find and Friends tabs, same to switch to settings page.
I checked the connection speed at speedtest.net, it showed around 30 Mb/s for the upload and 40Mb/s for the download.
Later I’ve plugged in ethernet cable (previously we’re using WiFI connection) and tried the plugin on my own - just clicking through tabs, trying to find users. The overal performance of the plugin is as slow as it was.
Could you, please, advise how to figure out what we’re doing wrong?
I’m really looking forward to this functionality an dwant to make it work asap.
