Hi everyone. I just wanted to thank adunion for posting this topic, and andreasm for posting the fix. It helped me find the exact same issue. But in a different scenario.
My VST Amp Rack was working fine from day one in Cubase 6 and 6.5. I upgraded to V7 last week via download purchase, installing V7 on my desktop, my old laptop, and my new laptop (all Windows based). I also updated them with the V7.0.1 patch.
The new laptop was so new that Cubase had never been loaded on it. The other two PC’s had V6.5 on them.
When I installed V7 on the new laptop, and launched it, a window popped up telling me that FCP_SMT_005_Reverence_ImpulseLibrary_01.vstsound was missing. So I found it on my desktop PC and added it to the proper folder.
However, I never got an error message regarding FCP_SMT_005_Reverence_ImpulseLibrary_03.vstsound and did not notice that file.
The VST Amp Rack worked fine on the two old PC’s, but once I got around to using the new laptop, it had had that same 70’s fuzz box sound that adunion described . This happened last night.
After a few hours of reinstalling and testing, I found this forum topic, and BANG, the fix worked. So once again, thank you adunion for posting this issue and thanks to andreasm for posting the fix!
