And Fabrice TooLate. Air EQ 2 was to be released a year ago.
If I am strong I will wait for Black Friday. I will need medical help !
Christ! The amount of people whinging and moaning over the guy whose products have made great sounds accessible to the masses at a fraction of their past cost! Write your own fucking plugins and get a grip.
You don't use Pro Tools do you? Slate dropped the ball, he even admitted in a Gearslutz thread that he dropped the ball.
The AAX thing has been pretty disastrous but the fact that their plugins are some of the best stuff out there and that they try to make their stuff super accessible remains the same. Super excited for VMR.
Still don't understand how Slate cops sh*t for AAX, it's not as if he invented the format. I still don't understand why ProTools went AAX: what was wrong with native VST standard?
It's like Microsoft and Silverlight over Adobe Flash - duplicate, unnecessary standard.
I agree that he didn't invent the format, nor is it his fault Avid abandoned RTAS. But he had to know that all DAWs would eventually be 64bit, right?
As a Pro Tools 11 user... I gotta say I still don't know how to feel about AAX. I mean, the format's great and its about time they scrapped that terrible unstable code... but the porting is still a nightmare.
I feel like avid and developers have good reason to behave the way they do but honestly it just sucks for us. I mean Waves and NI took their sweet time too...
There's been quite the teething stage however developers knew it was coming and had access to the API months before PT11 came out. Quite a few developers (iZotope, Toontrack) took full advantage of this while plenty didn't. PACE seems to be making a lot of things difficult, however.
So basically no time to prepare.
RE: 64 bit. Everyone bought VCC/VTM as 32 bit then went out and upgraded their DAW to 64 bit, and all of a sudden it's Slate's fault that their plugs are 64 bit? Seems a bit twisted logic.
IKmultimedia anyone? They don't even have most stuff in 64 bit vst yet. Promised for years. They rather release fancy ipad apps
Can you blame them? I'd imagine the consumer market is a lot more appealing.
I try to stay away from them, their website bugs the hell out of me.
It might have to do with the fact vst is Steinberg = competitor ?
Sound files have been posted. I'm going to have crack at distinguishing between hardware and VMR later today.GearWhores link
Anyone know how close VMR is to release? I know Stevens reluctant to even drop hints due to the unnecessary shit he's been putting up with over at Gearslutz.
Been eagerly awaiting it as I love the VBC comps, from what I've been reading VMR has just been getting final tweaks?
Not a clue, but I damn well hope it comes soon...
It has just entered beta testing. Probably won't take all that long anymore. I can totally understand Steven not wanting to share any more info before release after all that has been posted in the VMR thread at Gearslutz.
It's worth noting that AAX launched with PT10 in 2011. Developers had 2 years before PT11 abandoned old formats and it's been a years since. I won't pretend to understand what a tremendous (and expensive) undertaking that is, but it may offer some insight into why things like WUP exist.
