    V-Stack Under Intel Mac Doesn't work afterall

    Trying to use V-Stack to run Atmos/Trilogy as a workaround.

    We have Cubase4 installed but have renamed the VST folder to make sure it's not a plugin causing the problem. V-Stack just hangs at 'VST Multitrack' in the small loading window.

    Any ideas? Spectrum?

    Its not because of intel, V-Stack does not run since OSX 10.4.

    Thanks.

    Goddamit this is getting ridiculous. Everywhere I turn, opportunities for work-arounds are denied.

    It would probably be a good idea if this 'workaround' for Intel Macs was removed from the Spectrasonics site!

    That's £36 down the tubes as well.

    Really not very happy.

    Sorry for the trouble you're having. What type of Intel Mac do you have? V-Stack works fine in 10.4 with all the Laptops and iMacs. The eight cores have been reporting problems lately though.

    This is a temporary situation however. Much better solutions are on the way.

    Yes it's a brand new 8-core machine Eric.

    Re: using Giga machine - we're being forced to do this having exhausted all other avenues.

    We got as far as using Rax and JackOS for routing, which actually works (!!) but it requires that core audio in the main sequencer be set to Jack OS for all outputs - hugely inconvenient.

    BTW Do Trilogy and Atmos accept midi program change messages Eric? Might make using midi over lan on PC approach easier.

    We await developments with baited breath

    Thanks for your responses, they are appreciated.

    Cheers, Jim

    I have been a long term fan of VStack but it definitely doesn´t work reliably with OS 10.4. Additionally there is no way to use recent versions of Kontakt or Kontakt Player (the GUI is not working).

    Overall VStack is a dead product for Mac users and won´t be developed further. The new developers of Rack announced that they will integrate VST support as well as multiple outputs with the upcoming 3.0 update. So I believe that Rax is the way to go on a Mac.

    Shoot. The V-Stack solution is not gonna work.

    Re: using Giga machine - we're being forced to do this having exhausted all other avenues.
    That's at least a reliable solution for the moment.

    BTW Do Trilogy and Atmos accept midi program change messages Eric? Might make using midi over lan on PC approach easier.
    No. Best to use a KVM switch for the remote PC.

    They're on the way.

    You got it.

If I were the type of person that likes to dissect someones statements, take them out of context and read between the lines in the interest of fostering speculation and anticipation, I might suggest that this is indeed a highly positive statement that might mean that we could possibly expect it sooner than say....later???
