VST Connect REQUIRES a web cam. Without a webcam VST Connect will disconnect with a message “Connection Timeout, Disconnected”. We were trying to do this without cameras but it wouldn’t let us. Also, beyond what I did below, I found that the Behringer ASIO driver would not pass audio either way. No sound. We switched to the ASIO4ALL driver at the performer end and it solved that problem.
Here is my original post when it didn’t work
We connect and then disconnect with “Connection Timout, Disconnected” message. We have forwarded all port 51111-51113 (at both ends for troubleshooting), tested the forwarding with PFPortChecker from portforward.com. Tried putting both the computers on the DMZ… same problem. Leave this off, it won’t make a difference if the ports are forwarded properly. Should I enable ping on WAN? I’m about to.
I went to speedtest.net and tested my internet speed and his. Both have 3.5mb upload and 26mb download - and 16ms ping on his and 15ms on mine. Way more than the requirements of 256kb upload and a great ping.
Both running 64bit Windows 7 - Performer has nothing but the client performer software and a Behringer usb audio input which when my track was set to 96khz and 32bit floating, I got a message from VST Connect that I had to change to 48Khz and 16 bit to match the settings on the performer. It made a proper handshake there.
I can see the Performer audio settings - for the 5-10 seconds it stays connected. It is really connected.
He has never been playing while I’ve been connected, not sure if we would hear anything.
I tried to set my remote delay compensation to various levels up to 20 seconds. Still drops within 10 seconds.
I’ve used the preset template and made 2 of my own - I understand how it works. Performer Group track routing is TB Performer in and To Performer Output. The VST Connect and SE plugins come alive during the connection. They are in the Insert locations on the input channel for VST Connect and the performer group channel for VST Connect SE.
This was all solved with port forwarding, ASIO4ALL driver, and Web Cams at both ends. My Focusrite Saffire ASIO Driver on the cubase end works fine and did not need an ASIO4ALL. I’m going to test 96KHZ 24bit or 32bit floating with another friend today who has a better audio device.
You do not need to enable the WAN ping for this to work.
