Back home earlier than I thought I would be 🙂 and I find out that there is a bug fix out for the Parameter crash.
As always, quick response on the fix. Thanks Frits 8)
Not sure if this is related:
I had a crash on the parameter tracks when I right clicked on the track Header and asked to open Properties (version 2.0 in use). I only had a brief go on version 2.0, as I was required elsewhere, so I have not tested this out extensively.
Unfortunately, I am away from my Podium machine for several days now and cannot send a file. The VST in question was Zebra 2.2, but I was unable to test if it was just Zebra or all my VST’s.
Maybe somebody else could try to repro this and send you a file, or perhaps the fix for the above has fixed this also…
Have you tried (do you know about) deleting all the text in the Sticky note ?
I just tried creating a new project (have not done one in a while) knowing that I had previously deleted all the text in the Sticky Note and all that appears is a quick pop up saying new project created and time/date.
I hope that is the solution, let us know…
I would agree with you on the point of making sure the stability of Podium is rock solid on Win98 before it is left behind. No extra development to be carried out, just “bug fixes” would be my vote.
Time moves on and so do Operating Systems.
It was reluctant necessity that made me move on from 98 to 2000 and then XP. I noticed that as I wanted to upgrade my software, it no longer supported previous systems and so I had to move up an OS to keep using them . That’s the way the World is I’m afraid…
Do any of the current crop of DAW’s still offer support for the older systems ?
I guess that you may be able to phase out support, but that requires you are able to devote time to both sides of the fence for a while…ouch !
Hopefully, a 98/2000 user will chip in and say something…
@ Frits. I presume (from the info I found ), it’s something to do with the Windows Kernel that the builds no longer support anything lower than XP ?
Looks good to me Frits.
This should help to get across, to the detractors, that Podium is a serious alternative to other DAW’s.
I look forward to trying it in another week or so… 😀
Looks very slick to me Frits.
It’s unusual to have a excellent coder/developer that is also graphically adept. Your continued design improvements make the overall look of Podium a real winner. 🙂
Have it as an option though…There are some us that do not run our DAW on an internet enabled partition 8)
It kind of works, I will explain.
If I start up Podium by just clicking straight on to the “E” button on the effect track that ARC is loaded on, then it will open ok. 🙂
If I click on the big green start up Podium button (bottom left) and then on “E” button on the ARC track, it crashes ARC saying that the .dll has performed an illegal operation. 🙁
However, if I mute any of the tracks which have anything to do with ARC it also crashes it. This is not such a biggie because I am very unlikely to want to mute it anyway and more likely to just bypass it which seems to function Ok.
I have only had the chance to try it 4 times so far as I don’t really have too much time available to do music at present.
If you need any other info I will try and oblige as soon as I can.
I’m afraid the Beta does not like my IK Multimedia ARC plugin. I would presume the Set speaker arrangement function is causing the plugin to fail because the ARC plugin definitely does not support multiple speaker setups as yet.
I have to go back to 1.96 to get it to work.
Is there any way to provide the setSpeakerArrangement function as an option that can be turned off ? Otherwise I will have to stick to 1.96 I guess
Happy New Year, when it arrives…
Thanks for all the continued work Frits.
I am slowly (more slowly than you are updating I might add) getting round to investigating all the improvements in function and design. 🙂
I have not had as much time to use Podium of late but, now that I have finally got my Emu card out of my PC and gone over to a shiny new RME Fireface 400 my apparent Asio timing troubles are over.
Time permitting, I hope to chime in with a suggestion or two ( or just praise ) to the direction you are taking Podium in. 8)
@ Conquistador & Frits
I still have the CPU spikes (100%) on my system, but, and I must stress this, it’s down to my EMU 1820m drivers. I reported this to EMU and guess what…They said they would look into it – that was nearly 18 months ago.
I am eventually going over to Firewire with probably TC Electronic so that I can be rid of this buggy card system from EMU.
I don’t know what audio interface you are using Conquistador, perhaps that is the problem, though of a lesser problem than mine. In all fairness to my 1820m, there has not been any dropouts so far but, I don’t really push it that much either.
Beware the EMU….. 👿
There are guides on the front page of the WIKI (left hand side) in a few languages (no Swedish though). These are probably a bit out of date as well because of the rate at which Podium changes.
However, they should be good to get you going in the right direction for a while…

Welcome to the club… 🙂
I wasn’t expecting MTC for a couple of months at least. Brilliant update Frits.
