Loading SpectraLayers VST on an audio track in the fully-authorized Cubase Pro 11.0.0 shows a “Serious Error” dialog box and then demands to authorize God-knows-what by opening eLicenser, but everything has already been authorized and this is a BAD catch 22.
Follow up (still not resolved, please see below) :
turns out I had a Spectralayers full demo installed a few months ago and it has since then expired;
I have now uninstalled that demo, started C Pro 11 again and there’s no Spectralayers One visible anywhere within Cubase, including in block list. Refreshed the block list, Spectralayers One is still not there and cannot be found in the plugins list (either visually and by searching) from within an audio channel window;
I have now re-installed C Pro 11 AND its components (an optioned selected during the install);
there’s no Spectralayers One visible anywhere within Cubase, including in block list;
I have now completely uninstalled C Pro 11 from the system, then restarted the PC, renamed the originally-downloaded Cubase Pro 11 to “originally downloaded”, then downloaded C Pro 11 FULL VERSION from scratch (previously I’ve downloaded and installed the upgrade from 10.5 version) from within the Steinberg Download Assistant and installed from within there. The install went well. I’ve started Cubase Pro 11 and there’s still no Spectralayers One visible anywhere within Cubase, including in block list. Refreshed the block list, Spectralayers One is still not there and cannot be found in the plugins list (either visually and by searching) from within an audio channel window.
I would highly appreciate it if you amazing guys at Steinberg could, please, resolve this.
So Spectralayers previously opened in my Cubase Pro 11 (so I’m assuming it was Spectralayers 1). So then I got an update is available message. I went to Download Assistant where the only choices are 7 or 6. So I loaded 7. Mistake? Anyway, when I go to it in Cubase, it’s grayed out. I do see the Spectralayers in my VST 3 folder. And in the Info line, sometimes white lettering (when one event is selected), sometimes orange (when multiple events are selected). Thanks for whatever help you can offer.
Where did you see the message prompt…? Email notice perhaps.?
If you know you’ve never bought SL Pro or Elements, then maybe you’ll want to just ignore. It will be safe to uninstall whatever it was that you loaded and you should be back to where you were (SL One v7, running inside Cubase). There is no update for SL One to v8 (yet.!)
