Hello Zynewave, download is not possible, because i only got this message:
Fatal error: Uncaught ArgumentCountError: Too few arguments to function
thanks, i have already a backup of my latest podium version, but i’m wondering why anyone who have bought a Podium version, can not download the latest version if upgrade period was expired.
Have you also tried ASIO4ALL with increased buffer size?
default is 512 samples and you could try to increase to 1024 or 2048 samples
i never had any problems with ASIO4ALL to get it work on any systems.
it seems, you have a audio driver problem and i would suggest first to install latest audio driver.
you should also install latest version of ASIO4ALL and refer documentation if you have problems to get it work.
as nicholas.h postet, to get a performant system you should not use MME and you should also check, that Setup->Preferences->Plugins->Enable plugin Multiprocessing is ENABLED.
limitations of Podium Free compared to the commercial version:
– MIDI interface setup is limited to one input and one output.
– 64-bit mixer engine option is disabled.
– Plugin multiprocessing is disabled.
– ReWire is disabled.
– Surround-sound playback is disabled.
The disabled plugin multiprocessing option means that only one CPU core will be used when processing plugins. If you have a dual-core CPU you will be able to use 50% of your available CPU power before the Podium CPU indicator overloads. Podium Free still uses all available CPU cores for various background tasks such as audio file disk streaming.
These limitations may change in newer releases of Podium Free, depending on the future development of Podium.
Thanks for the advice!
It’s a perfect workaround and also flexible to use.
1 year and 3 months later, on march 17 2014 last Podium 3.2.4 was released and only beta version exist.
what is now with our extra year of free upgrades once the next Podium update is ready?
as i wrote in my first post, it’s realy unserious to offer upgrade periods without any upgrades!
This problem with Xpand!2 VSTi and Podium 3.2.5 (x64) occours only with this Hardware configuration:
Intel i7-4770 CPU, 8 Cores, 3.4GHz
8 GB Ram
Windows 10 (x64)
i have tested Xpand!2 VSTi with other DAWs (REAPER 5, Cubase 8) with this hardware configuration and it works!
On my old Hardware Xpand!2 VSTi works with Podium 3.2.5 (x64)
Intel E8400 CPU, 2 Cores, 3 GHz
4 GB Ram
Windows 10 (x64)
Confirmed, same problem with v2.1 demo!
this is a similar bug as we had in Podium 3.1.1
ME80v2.2 VST plugin works without any problems with all popular DAWs (Ableton, Cubase 8, Cakewalk, Studio One, …) 32bit and 64bit.
you should only have configured this entries for your P70 Yamaha Piano:
MIDI input interfaces: enable “USB midi cable”
MIDI output interfaces: enable “USB midi cable”
Setup->Audio/MIDI->Control Surfaces: NO “USB midi cable” entries!
+ Add new track
Source: VST instrument or MIDI Outputs – MIDI Out | 01 or your MIDI channel
Input: MIDI In
check your soundcard drivers
i had the same playback problems with Podium.
i’ve also downloaded the latest ASIO4ALL version and increased the ASIO Buffersize, but it doesn’t help.
only soundcard driver actualisation solves the Podium playback problem.
Noting news since march 17 2014 as Podium 3.2.4 was released.
it seems podium is now a dead horse …
Two week’s later, problems stay unchanged and your answers after few weeks intervall are not helpful.
as i wrote in my first post, there is no support to expect here and as i see, i’m not the only one …
it’s a Intel® G31 Express Chipset with max. 8 MB video ram and i use always the max value!
i didn’t have any multicore problems in this case with all well known DAWs, only with Podium.
