I know there have been several topics about this subject, and believe me, I tried them all. I am a software developer by profession so not unused to tinkering / troubleshooting. (When making music, however, I am in a different mood and did unfortunately not have a backup with my latest configuration too safely revert back too )
All of the folowing concerns the Dorico pro editions, btw.
The new features in 3.5 looked tempting and I decided to buy the update.
I installed 3.5 first alongside 3.0, the installer was not doing an update but installed a new extra Dorico.
I opened some projects that I made in 3.0 and playback via noteperformer was not working.
I then googled, came along several topics and have tried the following:
- Removing noteperformer
- Freshly installing Dorico 3.5, after removal of 3.0
- Reinstalling noteperformer
- Tinkering with the vst plugins menu, blacklist and whitelist, several restarts
- Tinkering with xml blacklists, running VstAudioEngine.exe after changes as suggested by some topics on this forum
- changing the path where noteperformer is installed manually (the Noteperfomer64.dll) as suggested by https://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=167497, the last post in that topic.
Now everything seems more broken, Dorico 3.5 is not starting again, the audio engine crashed.
See this screenshot.
I assume that removing the noteperformer64.dll file from the path suggested will make Dorico 3.5 start up again, but then I am were I started, without noteperformer working.
Some additional information:
Tried this with
NP 3.0.x (an installation from 2019)
NP 3.1.x (the latest version of yesterday)
NP 3.1.2 (the update that was released today) EDIT: 3.3.2, the latest, corrected typo.
I have some additional VSTS, besides the Halion steinberg, namely:
VSL Synchron player
VSL Synchron surround player
Before the situation that stops Dorico 3.5 from crashing the other VSTs worked.
I am at my wits end.
