OK, maybe I missed the instructions but I downloaded 6.5.1 and I can pull the Padshop up on my screen in a project, but none of the presets produce a sound. All my other VST instruments work but not Padshop.
Can someone help? I just downloaded 6.5.1 again and I will open a project to see if anything has changed. Does the installer put the Padshop sounds in a different folder?
So it looks like I have to uninstall everything and start over. Wow, I am rather stunned by this news because I have not seen this posted as the only option in the forum. I think Steinberg should post this with a sticky and spare everyone the angst. Crazy.
What’s bad too, as you would reinstall C6.5.1, it doesn’t catch that the Padshop is not in the install dialog. How can the install not contain the program? Bad install writer there.
Shinta - Hey, I wanted to say thanks for pointing me in the right direction. You have answered the call before and I appreciate it.
To anyone curious, I gutted an otherwise perfect working version of 6.5.1, reloaded 6.0, then 6.0.5, then 6.5.1 again, all to find the Padshop sound files - finally - installed. What a pain. All the while my elicenser was saying I had 6.5 in the bag. (And here I am saying it is too bad you can’t go straight to 6.5.1 if you have your key all setup. Eh, PITA.)
Actually I have to wonder how many people out there have the flawed/partial 6.5.1 version and don’t even know it? I bet there are many. I would never have known if I hadn’t picked up a keyboard and tried it out with all the Steiny synths. Oh well, I am pretty convinced Steinberg is not concerned about this either. Thanks again for helping me sort out the fix, Shinta!!
