Hi, I got this message in my email - “This trial version of VST Connect Pro runs for 30 days, and offers the same functionality as the retail version.”…
I’ve had it on for 14 days and it’s telling me my trial is over - and I would buy the product but we are seriously trying to work through the bugs. Can you help?
1 - Performer does not hear mix or anything from me until I switch audio devices and then back
The Fix is to switch to the performers internal audio device and then switch back to his Focusrite or ProTools audio device (this happens with both a Mac Performer and a PC Performer). After the switch to the internal audio and back to pro audio - for some reason this fixes the problem most of the time. Took me a while to find that solution.
2 - Talkback is garbled I’m told by the performer
I have a preset template that sets everything up with the control room and talkback microphone. When I press the talkback it sounds good here when I listen to the VST Connect Cue Mix, but not at performer end (from what I’m told). I have not messed with this much because I solved it with using another track manually directed at performer with a Mic.
3 - Missing Hidden Feature I was using in VST Connect 2.x - Secret Jam Session feature unplanned by Steinberg but worked.
In VST Connect 2.x I was able to Jam with my friends by clapping together for timing marks and then either having them play first and I play along (not letting them hear me) or I play first and not hear them until after the recording was done and I would move the audio to a clap we had done in earlier part of the track. - So with VST connect 2.x we were able to put this together and Jam either way, but at my end - as the play along person it was great - I heard the Performer and myself - in Time. Problem - With VST Connect 3.x I can’t do this either way - I never hear myself exactly when I play it, it’s 1 second later or so. Even when I’m sending my audio directly to the output device. What happened? Can I fix this - so I can hear myself when directed directly out without using my audio devices zero latency monitoring feature. I want to hear my guitar rig in time and have it laid on the track alongside what my performer is playing and have the performer not hear me. Is this possible with 3.x?
