Yes. It's just an update to the existing VMR plugin, so it replaces what's already there just like all prior VMR updates have.

I suggest that you change your username Sir!

For the fellow noise friends, I "battled" quite a bit to have an option for the noise but in the end lost due it being more complicated that one might think at first.

Thanks for reminding me to read the release notes... that alone makes it worth it to me

Great Now I have concluded I have to sell this VMR thing out of my collection. I have waited enough for individual modules. I think enough is enough. It will save me time also thinking or coming to Slate VMR release thread. Good and my best wishes to all lovely users who enjoy the VMR. Happy Mixing.

VMR 2.... wow. Nice surprise this morning. I'll be happy to have less fake noise for sure.

One of these mornings we'll wake up to FGX2 the same way..

I get the feeling it's closer than we might imagine.. hope so after years and years...

FGX2 inside VMR would be cool too..

I'm not hung up on individual plugins tbh... but understand those who are.

This update isn't huge though is it?

Maybe with all the OTHER rack style channel strips being released it's a good time for Slate to appeal to new customers looking at them..

Who knows, but the 'Slate Train' keeps rolling on down the line.

My subscription has worked out well though, Verbsuite and Repeater are surprise gems!!!

Seems like a good improvement for the user interface.

Still missing one important option for creative engineers: a internal side chain connection. I would like the see the possibility to use any Slate EQ to act as side chain for the Slate compressors. (within the rack) See the Waves Scheps Omni Channel.

Glad to see an update, thanks slate team. Sad to see trimmer being a thing though. What I really want is accurate metering to the right full size of the vmr-gui with trimknobs built into each module. Steven what do you think, could be something to consider?

Does it replace VMR1 and can be installed instead of VMR1? Projects already using VMR1 will working with VMR2 without problems?

Ok, the only thing I see after installing VMR2. "no iLok found"... so there must be something broken

Glad to see this update! Dream strip and new text-based search options are very welcome and I can see how they will improve the workflow a lot. (my only issue with VMR was the need to scroll through all the modules icons, and now it's solved) Noise-less EQs are also nice, while having FG-S on pretty much every track. Definitely a step in the right direction, I think!

Oversampling sounds really good to me. Ruling! I kind of wish there was a global switch because I think I prefer it on, but I'm very happy to see it there regardless.

Hey Steven how are you liking the Krk V4S4's? I was thinking about picking up a pair. I've heard nothing but good about them.

Great features, specially the dream strip!! Thanks for this. Let's add a multiband (tc x5 meets OTT meets Tubetech Multiband) to the mix to make it complete.

This is ridiculous.

Removing the noise (or making it an option) should have been released as VMR 1.0.0.1 on November 31, 2014, two weeks after VMR's initial launch. THREE AND A HALF YEARS AGO.

This is an incremental update that should have been touted as such in a simple e-mail blast or a Facebook post. "Hey guys, Steven Slate here. There's a small update to VMR in your user area, getting rid of the noise that you guys have been asking for. Also, Trimmer is black now. Modules are still not available outside the rack, obviously. No way we can figure that out. Also, while adding a "list view" to the module browser, you will still need to scroll to get to the bottom of it, because we couldn't find the 'Reduce font size' button. But wait until you see what we've done with the preset section! You'll swear you are 'dreaming'!"

VERSION 2.0! Wowzers!

I initially thought Slate was just a hype machine, but then I bought into it completely, and now I'm back where I started. You're just like everything else on the internet these days. "You'll never guess what Slate's done in VMR 2.0! THIS. CHANGES. EVERYTHING. Click to learn more!" Spare me.

I like the changes Steve can call this update whatever he likes he's not invading a country or killing people for not joining a cult.

I also filed a ticket as well. I hadn't realized that iLok License Manager could be updated, so I'll give that a go. If the latest one doesn't work, I'll get version 1.5 and see if that does the trick

EDIT: Updated to the latest iLok manager and it still doesn't work. Downloaded the legacy installer on their site and it's not working either.

I have work to do so If I can't get it going in a bit, I'm just going to install the previous VMR again.

hmm.. sadly cannot open my Ableton 9 projects with VMR 2.0

(reinstalled AL9, re-set AL9, updated iLok Mgr, updated Max4L etc)

So, I've re-installed the previous VMR & can magically open them again..

Not for me. I've had a nightmare this morning. I updated to VMR 2.0, and now my mix in Studio One which I was working on all day yesterday is broken.

When I open the project from the save file I created yesterday, all of the instances of VMR in the project have reset to the new default Dreamstrip. So all the mixing I did in VMR 1.0 yesterday is gone. I can't recover it.
I'm sure it's still there somewhere, because I haven't altered the saved file. But VMR 2.0 is ignoring my saved VMR 1.0 settings and loading its own defaults instead.

I have a deadline and don't have time to wait for Slate support to come online in LA, so I remixed the song from memory this morning, which took a couple of hours.

I've re-opened the file again this afternoon, and the VMRs have all reset themselves again.

I would recommend waiting to see if this problem gets sorted before updating, as this has cost me hours and hours of work, and I won't know if it will get fixed until I get my support ticket answered.

Disaster.

Is anyone noticing any significant improvement in load times? Especially when VMR is loaded up for the first time in a project?

Very sorry for what you're going through ><. I tried installing the latest iLok Maanger one more time to see if I could get it going, but I still get "No License Found". Maybe at some point between songs, but I really don't have time to try to get this going. Installed the previous VMR (1.9 with the Audified compressor) and it works just fine.

For ILOK problems. After installing the latest ILOK Manager, synchronize your ILOK again. Worked for me.

Id love a less trashy Reviver GUI with no "virtual" ventilation (botton) or lid-mechanism (top). Just cleaner looking instead.
