I had the same issue. Did an comprehensive automation test with Altiverb 7.3.3 (latest version for windows) on Nuendo 8, Nuendo 10 and Nuendo 10.3. -To make it short I can just say Altiverb is not usable anymore under Nuendo 10.3. That
s a shame! STEINBERG, could You please give a statement if this is an issue of updated Automation protocol of Nuendo 10.3 or a bad software progamming of Altiverb?? Neither snapshot nor Preset Automation is possible -In Nuendo 10 You can use the snapshot Automation. In no way mix snapshot automation and preset automation on the same altiverb instance. If You load a new Preset or load a different room from the picture browser, You loose all the previously used rooms of snapshot automations on the same track (You see the parameter change, but the room stays the same). You start to automate the first room in a snapshot, if You want a different room, load it in a different snapshot, but dont change the Preset (!!). If You want to use the same room of a snapshot later with different settings, You have to save it as a different snapshot and load this one. A Snapshot alway loads with it
s saved settings. So parameter change of a snapshot will not be automated!! If You want to change parameters (You can try to Your liking in preview mode) You have to right click on the snapshot and click on "overwrite". But You have to know that this will change the settings as well for previously used parts of the same snapshot!! So dont do it if You used this snapshot earlier in the project, but save the changed settings as a new snapshot. If all the snapshots are full, load a new instance of altiverb in a later insert and deactivate the other one from this point on in the project to save cpu processing power.
-In Nuendo 8.3 Altiverb Automation mostly works as it should. Only if You load a preset with many snapshots in it, it might not load a previously used Preset correctly. It then tries to load the snapshot 1 of the preset with the many snapshots in it. A workaround can be to leave snapshot one free (!!!). The preset with the many snapshot stays on if You go back to the previously loaded Preset, but it still loads the correct room and all automated settings. Still is a bit weird, but at least You don`t loose time intensive automation data and have to do it again.
So: Steinberg, please respond to this!! Why does automation of Altiverb work in Nuendo 8.3 and works less in Nuendo 10.0 and doesn
t work at all in Nuendo 10.3?? If its a matter of Nuendo please fix it instantly, as this is a serious issue for all postproduction in media! If it
s a altiverb issue please kick their asses because its not ok to pay a lot of money for a plugin and then have it completely non working! It already cost me a complete working day and it`s hard to describe how angry that makes me. 1000 Euro Plugin for nothing! And loosing of a lot of time which is the worst.
thank You and sorry
