Thanks Mahlon - could i ask where you read/heard about this? I'm trying the demo version, but finding some of the instructions a bit confusing - so maybe if you read about it on a Sonar forum they could shed some light.(seems to be to setup you do basically the same thing for Sonar as for Cubase).
Thats good news Gunther. The only thing i miss with not using Altiverb, compared to REVerence in Cubase 5, is the ability to alter the stage depth- that you cant do with Cubase's REVerence reverb (unless I'm still missing something! ).
I had asked the question about Altiverb/jbridge/sonar somewhere else and had a couple of replies that it had worked. I don't remember exactly where I asked that -- maybe it was the NI forum.
I asked again at the Sonar forum and the developer for jbridge responded that a couple of users had reported it worked -- but with the following procedure. This may apply to Cubase as well if your Altiverb resides on a dongle.
From the developer: "Hi, folks. I am the developer of jBridge. Regarding iLok protected products, they'll probably never work ( and I can't offer support for that, as you may understand ), since their protection mechanisms seem to prevent them from being bridged.
However, some users have reported that they were able to run Altiverb6 (which uses a dongle) by disabling the "use auxhost thread safety measures" option. I can't confirm that. Regarding any other problems you may encounter, feel free to drop me a line, I am committed to make this work as well as possible."
Also, he wrote:
"According with two user's reports, the dongled version of Altiverb6 will work with jBridge, but you must disable the "use auxhost thread safety measures" option, or it will crash."
