I was testing VST Transit today with my friend on the other side and unfortunately this perfect concept is more “bugged” then working.
First issue I’ve found is that you can not select tracks from your project in VST Transit, which will be shared. There is no check box at all.
Second, Ive found friend on VST Transit network and I’ve sent him invitation. He did do the same, but we couldn’t accept the invitation request, button was grey. I have also received friendship invitation from another artist, but the accept button was grey too.
Third, I’ve tried to log off and log in to the VST Transit in hope that ill be able to accept those invitations, but I haven’t found them in INBOX anymore and i couldn’t send to those users another invitation, because also grey button. Well, magic has happened. Without accepting friendships one of those users (artists) have appeared in friend list window.
Fourth, project i wanted to share with him has appeared in his Transit so he did open that project. We were shocked, because audio clips were completely out of sync and on wrong positions than they have supposed to be. Midi parts were locked and he couldn’t edit them, which makes Transit a bit useless, because if he would want to change melodies and add some more notes there, basically he wouldn’t be able to do it.
Fifth, my friend has added couple of instrument lines and synced project. Those additions should appear in folder channel in my local project, but it has remained empty.
Im talking about OS X version of Cubase Pro 8.5 and the latest VST Transit.
This great addition in Cubase 8.5 could be very cool and useful if its fully working. Lets hope, that new version of Transit which fixes major issues will be available for download soon.
