Virtual Guitarist! Virtual Bassist!

I just discovered something interesting. I have Virtual Guitarist (1) installed on my Windows 7 running Cubase 6.5 64 bit and everything works fine and I save the song. If I open that song in my Cubase 6.5 64 bit on Mac OS X 10.6.8 the Virtual Guitarist (1) is missing (Cubase 6.5 can’t open Virtual Guitarist (1) and puts it on the “Vst2xBlacklist Cubase”.) This goes for both 32 and 64 bit.

Then I tried opening the file (still created on Cubase 6.5 64 bit on Windows 7) in Cubase 5.5 32 bit on Mac OS X 10.6.8 and it opens fine! It works! Not of a much use as I make all my new projects in Cubase 6.5 but if needed I can convert the Virtual Guitarist (1) tracks into wav audio in Cubase 5.5 and import the audio into Cubase 6.5.

Still waiting for the Virtual Guitarist working on the latest versions of Cubase… :slight_smile:

Can you explain exactly how you have managed to install VG1 on your Windows 7 machine. (I also have VG 1 Electric Edition)

I cannot get beyond the start screen of the install disk, it says something about unable to update the registry.

I would love to know how you managed to install it.

Actually reading a bit more of the thread someone posted that they simply waited 15 minutes and the install came back to life - sounds a bit crazy, but at this stage I’ll try anything to get VG1 and VG EE working again in Cubase 6 Windows 7 - I really miss these VI’s (not to mention the £300 they cost me!)

Thanks

As far as I remember I installed Virtual Guitarist (1) from the original installer disk. I am not sure if I had to do something special to install it. It is almost 2 years since I installed the VG1. But I have it running fine on my Cubase 6.5 64-bit on Windows 7 now.

The Virtual Guitarist EE has a newer installer found here: ftp://ftp.steinberg.net/Archives/

The name of the file is: VG_EE_Installler_Update.exe

I also have Virtual Guitarist EE running on Windows 7

I am in a Mac quad core intel xeon- version 10.6.8
I cannot open VG2 in Cubase 6.5.1 64 bits, why!!! Help someone?..
Thanks

I am running VG2 on Mac OSX 10.6.8 Cubase 6.5.0 64-bit.

When I’m trying to run the Virtual Guitarist installer on OSX, after clicking Install or continue than “Accept” a small blank screen comes up and nothing

Maybe Steinberg will team up with Air/Wizoo again, and update these best virtual instruments. Let’s hope

Virtual Guitarist 2 still running - now in Cubase 6.5.3 64-bit on Mac… all good so far.

VG2 might run, i dunno I don’t have Vg2, but VG1 doesn’t

On windows 7 64 bit with cubase 7.01 VG2 still runs, even in vstbridge, while other apps crash VG keeps running happily. This is a good designed plugin, after all this time it is still installable and runnable, great!

But then again I did submit and urged SB to get it back!

Hey Everybody!

Well, patience really is the key with the “Updating the registry”-issue on Win 7 64-bit with VG. After reading this thread I thought I might also try to install it and just leave it in the background. And after surfing / doing other things a bit the logo suddenly blinked and the install-process continued.

Now I can run everything like on XP. Just amazing! Okay, I had to install my Cubase 5 as 32-bit Version, because “The Grand 2” made trouble in the 64-bit version. But ReWiring with Reason also just works in 32-bit Mode with Cubase 5, so that this should be the best solution for using every feature from the existing software on a new system.

Well, I have these fine instruments working really great. Have found that I can never “UPGRADE” Cubase 6. If I do I lose them all. Sad

Hi Jack.

I am using Cubase 7.0.5 and everything running fine, Virtual Guitarist 2, and Virtual Bassist.

Thanks “haraldsson” for letting me know that but I am so happy the way things are I will leave it alone. I don’t need the hassle at this stage of the game in my life. I really don’t know enough to move forward. I’m groping all the time
on the computer when I move ahead and afraid I’ll lose more than I gain.

I purchased the original VG back in the day, but somewhere along the line I’ve lost it. I have a couple songs where I used the Wah Wah patches (since my own attempts at Disco Era wah failed miserably). I wish Steinberg would post access to the PC version in the Legacy downloads section –

Aloha T,
After reading haraldsson’s post:

I am running VG2 on Mac OSX 10.6.8 Cubase 6.5.0 64-bit.

I got encouraged but then I remembered (like what you posted):

Same situation here. :frowning:
{’-’}

Virtual Guitarist 2 and Virtual Bassist still working… now in Cubase 7.5 64 bit on Mac OSX Maverick. :slight_smile:

But would still be nice to have these two updated to today’s standards!

I would like to know if they will work also (on win 64bit)
