It's a little comical that people are criticizing Slate for announcing a bunch of new projects when they can't finish the ones they've already announced and Steve comes on here and talks about the VMS instead of the VMR.

Not really important, but funny nonetheless.

Go get em, Steve. I'll give it an honest demo.

Here's the Eventide link kaboom75 is referring to. Good stuff!
"UltraChannel is available as a free download through midnight July 8, 2014, after which it will cost $249."

Wouldn't this work for VMR too?

But I see what our Steven is doing, he wants us to choose between the World Cup and VMR!

Hehe, maybe when VMR is 8 years old as well...

Yup, I think you are very close in your guessing concerning the VMR. VTM is still in public beta and has been for a while with major bugs.
This "weeks away" on the 8th of may was really only announced for potential buyers of the new UAD 1073 (announced 9th of May), but they`ve been summer sale shopping it for $99 anyway....

I`ll let this thread get some rest, it will be out when it`s ready,

The beta cycle can last 1 or 2 weeks. If the plugin is well coded, it can go really fast.

And about the new UAD 1073, it's NOT on sale this summer. It has not been released long enough for that. And in general, their last released plugin is not part of the sales.

I can swear it was $99 the first day of sale, cause I bought it just 4 days prior to the sale and thought "[email protected]!" -But anyway.... this is the -73 to beat in the se-world.
Btw it looks as if the Slate version is missing the Mic input side of things which is sounds pretty damn fine on the UAD even without using the Apollo

Maybe it's because you owned the legacy versions prior to purchasing.

For those purchasing a boxed version, it could include a little plastic USA flag.

Apparently the beta cycle at sLate digital can last forever, the VTM update is STILL a public beta on the downloads page and has been for months.

VTM might still say public beta but it is 99.9% functional as far as I can see from our support team. And the fact that it is eight times less CPU intensive says something about my code team.

We're working hard to provide the best quality tools for you all. Thanks for your patience.

Cheers,
Steven

Really.....didn't work for me to the extent I had to immediately roll back.....I'll have to try it again and send a ticket if it's the same.

EDIT: Apologies it was actually the last release version that didn't work for me, the public beta seems good so far.

What issues are people experiencing with VTM? It works fine here with Logic X.

Public Beta VTM: In Nuendo 6.5 OSX the gui vanishes, it crashes, and I`ve learned during my time with Slate plugins you better not use the VST3-versions I`m a afraid. Especially if you love to use the VMB.
I had to stop using the VCC due to unstability - sometimes a project would load, sometimes not. Much the same problems in Win7.

The release version of the VTM has been very stable.

For me the most stable program ever from Slate and the Gang is actually Trigger 2. It has never caused a crash ever!

Looking forward to the new version of the limiter.

Is one planed or announced ? Would be happy about one, even with some latency (128 or 256 or so).

Slate said months ago a low latency mode would be added. I'm not sure what that would do to the sound quality though.

Anyone tried a reverb plugin in-between VTM & FG-MU woarrr

The latest word is that there won't be a low latency mode.

Latency is needed since VTM is a causal system.

Impressive if you`re on Cubendo 7.5/6.5 Mavericks. Both the vst2 and vst3 in beta 1.1.3.2 crashes my daw after some dialling around even in an empty project.

Any update that has a latency of less than a year would be acceptable.

Steven explained how VTM's latency couldn't be reduced because of the way the incoming and outgoing signals interact. It's just inherent to the coding.

Yes, Ashley said somewhere that similar to a spring reverb the way the signal will be affected partly depends on the signal that passed through it the moment before.

Hi guys.

It's funny, I did a lot of records on tape machines, and then about ten thousand hours of recording drum samples on tape machines, and I was always able to overcome the latency which btw, is the exact same latency on the VTM. I've explained before that there are mechanical responses that take time in a real tape machine, and Fabrice found that in order to reproduce the physics of what was happening, latency was necessary.

Now, what I have said in the past was that we certainly could create a no latency mode that would compromise the authentic tape tone as minimally as possible.

But here is the deal. Look at all the Slate threads. Everyone wants everything... NOW! They want VMR. They want FG-X 2.0. They want VCC 2.0. They want VMS. They want VBC Mono. So think of this.. if I put coders on the VTM no latency mode, then what do I compromise, because I'll have to take them OFF another job. Should I take them off FG-X 2? Not if I want to walk the streets without fear of getting slaughtered.

And I get it.. we've made some announcements and promises, and we've been really crappy at keeping those promises, and people get frustrated. I can't really make excuses about these things. The issue is quite straightforward: it's just the ratio of 'stuff' vs manpower. Right now we have way more of the 'stuff' than we do the manpower. We lost two coders this year which didn't help.

But the good news is that we're a determined bunch. We're pushing through the problems, we're hiring fresh talent, we're only drinking alcohol on days that end with 'y', and we're motivated to put out the best products we can.

So I appreciate the support, I appreciate the patience, and I'm sorry to anyone who is upset about the long wait. But it will be worth it in the end.

Cheers,
Steven

I dont have need for the latency mode of VTM. I just want VMR and VCC! Also I would like to change my Sonnox Limiter to FG-X!
