Ok, here’s the problem… 😀
I recently purchased a Focusrite USB Audio Interface which came with a free plugin suite (the kind that you have to activate first online before using) – which I have used without fault in other DAWs. When coming to Podium, scanning for them makes it crash and put that certain plugin in the quarantine list. If I edit the quarantine list, it’ll crash again.
Any solutions, guys? The plugin suite has a compressor, equalizer, gate, and a reverb – all of which make the program crash. Thanks a lot guys.
I assume that plugins are these:
Downloaded and tested: they work.
Which OS do you use? I use XP 32 bit.
If it’s 64 bit, it could cause some problems with Podium and plugins, both 32bit. Otherwise, I don’t know.
We expect help from those who know more than me! 😀
Yep, they’re the ones. I’m on Windows 7 64-bit… Would that pose a problem?
It was only a hypothesis. If you are using Podium 32-bit, then you must also use 32-bit plugins.
In my case there is no problem because everything is 32-bit.
Several users had problems with Podium Free and plugins on 64-bit systems. An example is this:
It is not specified if those plugins are 32 or 64 bits, however, they’re compatible with both systems. I guess they’re 32-bit, but in rare cases, the installer may install plugins version according to your operating system.
The only thing you can do is try them with the Podium Demo x64.
Try them first without and then with JBridge (see the Download page on this website). If they work without JBridge, then they’re 64 bit plugins and you can’t use them with Podium Free.
I don’t know what else to try.
OK, well it seems that I may know more about the subject than what I thought I did. I’ve tried these same plugins in both Reaper 32-bit and 64-bit with no problem… Shall try Podium Demo 64 bit now.
Ok, tried Podium Demo 64-bit and I only got the plugins that were 64-bit available after the scanning process. That means, most of my plugins cannot be used in Podium Demo 64-bit…
Ok, I have my guitar in hand now and I installed the 32-bit version of Podium Demo (for others viewing this page – I’m on 64-bit Windows 7). All of my plugins work fine – besides one problem:
I can’t record. When I arm the tracks, press the record-ready key, and try to “play”. I just sits there. I try again, and it hangs for a about 5 seconds, meters and everything, and then it goes right back to where I started.
Why can’t I record on the only Podium release so far that accepts my plugins? I’ve tried different ASIO drivers, sample rates, but to no avail. Haven’t experienced this in any other DAW.
Have you pushed the R-button on the track AND pushed the big record knob on the bottom of the screen in the transport section? And have you selected the right input?
Yep.. Done all that… =) No avail.
Have you pushed the R-button on the track AND pushed the big record knob on the bottom of the screen in the transport section. And have you selected the right input?
Yes, I have done that. 😀 Like I said it hangs up for a few seconds and doesn’t respond to the command.
OK. At least we found that the plugins are 32-bit.
Evidently Podium Demo is more efficient than Podium Free. 😕
CPU rate during recording (or before you start it)? It could be an overload problem.
Do not forget that Podium free does not support multicore cpus!
Guys, I’m not talking about Podium Free hanging up – but rather Podium Demo when in 32-bit. Podium Free doesn’t hang up; and Podium Demo will even without any plugins selected on any track.
I still have the problem, guys.. 😀
Everything works like a charm except for those few Focusrite plugins. They work on every other DAW I’ve tried them on. Any help?
