Well, I’ve got to say that since your reply I’ve looked into your new (to me) suggestions and revisited some of the older plugs I had and promptly forgot about my Waves trial…
It’s been a lot of fun for the past few days…
Slightly convoluted procedure to get what I wanted but I got it to work…
1. Create a copy of .pod file and rename for 64-bit
2. delete all 32-bit plugins except Kitcore (including Zynewave plugins).
3. Open Podium 64-bit as Administrator
4. Import Plugins from Folder -> Waveshell
5. Quit Podium
6. Install JBridge 1.5
7. Open Podium 64-bit as Administrator
I tried keeping my other 32-bit plugins but one or all of the rest were causing Podium 64-bit to crash when I opened an arrangement that used them. This happened even without importing the Waves plugins. If I have more time, I’ll do some trial and error and see if I can find the offending plugin(s).
Hey Telenator and Slomo, thanks for the replies!
I’ve been around for a while (Podium user since 1.7x) and I had amassed a large collection of free plug-ins on my WinXP machine. I also use Adobe Audition with iZotope plugins for my professional work, and, for years, used hardware-powered TC effects. While I’m aware of the huge library of great, hi-quality instruments I’m not really a VSTi user, outside of Kitcore, and so I’m focused on having a solid staple of bread-and-butter effects.
The free stuff I’ve tried to populate don’t really seem to cut it and/or haven’t been updated since I first licensed Podium. Even my go-tos from a few years ago (Kjaerhaus, GVST, Bluecat) don’t really do what I want them to do.
I have no desire to leave Podium, as I just love the way multitracking/mixing works in it, but I need to be able to get tracks to sound the way I want them to sound. 😕
I’m going to try JBridge and see if I can bump 32-bit Kitcore up to work with 64-bit Podium. Failing that, I’ll try Slomo’s link’s suggestion.
Okay… so 64-bit works for the Waves plugins. Unfortunately… Kitcore does not… Any thoughts on 32-bit?
Love love love Podium but don’t love the lack of quality free/cheap plug-ins. I was hoping Waves would enable me to stay…
it was all user error. I was opening the wrong file in Audition. When I opened the correct file I found the actual corrupted audio and fixed it…
Would moving to Win 7 64-bit involve new hardware in addition to the OS or is your machine capable enough of handling Win 7 64-bit? How much does Microsoft charge for the upgrade version of Windows 7 64-bit in Denmark?
eep! Three incremental releases in two weeks! and fixing bugs…! Frits, you’re awesome, I must say… If this were some other company, they would have said, “Well, just don’t use peak RMS. We’ll fix it in the next version.”
