Indeed. Just one more really good reason for individual plugins.

Hey... were you able to move your llok2 stuff onto the ilok3? If so, was it painless?

Cool! What was the loadtime with your previous iLok2?

I posted the other day that it was 28 seconds (!!!) with iLok 2 and slightly outdated iLok software... Updating the iLok manager brought it down to 15 seconds, and now 9 seconds with iLok 3.

Did you get your OS and plugins on a SSD too? If you want a "happy life" this is needed

Brainworx has just released a new Mastering Plugin that's supposed to operate as a mastering desk with parameters to control the tone, different compression types, instead of just being a limiter. It's certainly interesting and makes me wonder if FG-X2 will take a similar approach!

Sweetest API-typical high end in the box. You’ll forget about the Waves.

Thanks for the updates Steven. VMR2 works like a charm again in Live 10 and like many said before, the new EQ sounds great. I hope we'll see some creative Slate style plugins in the future, pretty settled with EQ's, comp's and the lot by now.

Steven, please make VMR2 work with Adobe Premiere CC 2018 (like 1.0 does) :-)

One week later, installed the update, and loading time in Live (beta 7) is back at almost a minute.
This is getting so frustrating.

Edit: i'm sorry Steve but i have cancelled my renewal for now. I love the plugins but this continues waiting for instances to load, when i just want to quickly drop an EQ or something, has really put me off. I'll wait for the rack modules to be split.

Any chance for a LPF on the SSL eq?

I'd bet 'no,' but still vote for... don't know if they're ever on sale for less than $49 (got mine for free), but the Eliosis filters are quite capable in the SL8 rack (needs a gate/expander preferably with its own filters, though).

A couple of questions!

1) I've been loving the heck out of the Custom Series EQ. The manual says that it's based on studying over a dozen classic analog EQ's. This may be something that might be difficult to remember, but do you remember which EQ's specifically were modeled?

While some big names might be interesting to add to the list like Tube-Tech or Manley VU, I'm unsure if another EQ to the VMR is really necessary. If the Custom Series was modeled from some familiar names, they're essentially already in the VMR as it is .

2) I think there was an update coming along regarding iLok/PACE and faster load times? I was wondering how that was coming along!

We need a gate/expander module for VMR!

Yeah the release notes says that they have fixed the loading times, but here it is just the same. I have sold all my licences except the Virtual Tubes because of this.
VMR + VTC = 7 seconds to load.
Only the 3 Tubes = 2.4 seconds
When i had 7 more modules it was loading for 15!! seconds.
That means if i had all the modules it would load for half a fcking minute.
I found this ridiculous, and stopped using VMR.
The same thing happens with Softube Modular, which uses the same iLok + licensed modules system.
This is where copy protection actually hurts the paying customers.
And with each new module it gets slower? No thanks.

But this might be only my machine:

So anyone who are willing to test this and has a lot of modules, can you measure the first instance loading time?
Also which ilok you use, and if you are on the subscription mode?

Thanks

7 seconds!? Scandalous, how DARE they!! No wonder you sold all your licences. Do they not grasp the reality of our enormous importance in the universe as the genious music producers we are? I will boicott them from now on!!!!! My face is fuming with rage!

Hi Steven, is there any chance of a black series SSL eq? The Brown in VMR sounds sweet but sometimes I miss the extra mile the black series give.

My VMR is now taking 2+ minutes to load the first instance in Cubase and Studio One (Windows 7 64). iLok 3 and latest drivers. Great workflow!

Well.. I can't think of any stronger case for separate plugins.

The new version of VMR crashes Harrison Mixbus. The older version worked fine. Just an FYI. A pain since VMR is all over my sessions, and cost me a lot of time trying to figure out what was going on. I think was triggered when I used sync on my iLok. FWIW....Slate is no help since Mixbus isn't supported.....

Is there any chance that VMR does double mono in protools?

A computer restart did get the initial load back down to ~20 seconds, but still, come on.

Also, the right side of the VMR GUI is loading white blank in new Cubase 10.

FINALLY!!!

The latest beta fixes the loading times!!! It loads instantly here!

Had to update the ilok manager to 5.0.
Even there ilok release notes say that they improved loading times.
Now i really hope Softube can pull this off with the Modular plugins.

I'm considering getting back to the Slate plugins, but as i see they completely abandoned the non-subsribers.
No black friday sale for single plugins?
