I did just did - and upon exit suffered a crash that wiped Nuendo prefs and caused Nuendo to crash on start up again.

I had to scan all my plugins again, but the installation of this plugin had caused a problem with Melodyne, of all things.. Had to remove that first then rescan, yada, yada, yada..

Something in this plugin causes problems with iLok me-thinks..

Hmmmm... Not an issue here with Nuendo 6.07 Windows 7 64bit

What does the "prime" dot mean next to the MS value? It appears with seemingly random ms values. Can't find manual to read.

Wonder if the Waves Metafilter delay can do this stuff, just ran out of the demo.
Prime numbers, hence Lexicon "Prime Time:"

Thanks, not enough time to read 100 pages of manual without search , but is the prime numbering just a curiosity or does it actually have some meaning in this case?

It says primes are useful for obtaining maximum echo density in recirculation type effects, but that wouldn't matter for a single channel... so, a curiosity in this case, unless you're using multiple instances or PT-style dual mono, etc. (see pg. 9 of the PDF).

I "think" it simply refers to prime nubers that are not divisible...but I could be mistaken. Thing sounds awsome...I had the real one and it sounds like it. Love the smoothness and response of the sliders and knobs...something that many seem not to get right.

It's a pity that this bias persists. I thought people would get past it once iLok did away with the need for the physical dongle.

So it seems to be a Windows 8.1 64 bit thing then. I'm also having problems with some of the other Soundtoys plugs..

It's an option that is up to the vendor, and only a few are offering it so far, though.

Have problem with it on OSX Mavericks 10.9.2, host Reaper 4.602 64-bit.

When i load Little PrimalTap on channel in host i can't use any Reaper's control functions in plugin window: i can't bypass it, can't select In/Out and etc. With any other plugins everything is fine!

At this screenshot i mark Reaper's function bar that doesn't work.

Just type in the tempo of your track into tempo display and press enter.

Re-check again, fresh news from Soundtoys:

Free for a limited time. Offer Ends March 28th, 2014.

In case you haven't heard, it’s time to get a Little Primal. With Little PrimalTap, our dirty little delay plug-in.

No iLok hardware is required to run this plug-in*. No key. Dare we say dongleless?

it only requires an iLok.com account for plug-in authorization, but no hardware dongle is needed.

Way to go Soundtoys Team

Enjoy fellas ;-)

Problem only with Vst version of plugin. AU works fine. Reported to Soundtoys Support.

BTW if anyone is having trouble with a license not showing up, go to faq on the ST site. There is a "restore and repair" setting in iLok which will fix it. Was driving me crazy! what a cool delay effect! these guys rule! I'd seriously buy anything they make

This sounds very good. Great distortion unit. Forget about the delay.

Careful here. You want to keep me for a customer - right?

In the experience of many users, Pace is neither a trustworthy nor competent company. These users deserve an alternative, I hope you would agree.

Yep the saturation and distortion is very unique and analog like. SoundToys impressive once again.

Really nice and dark sounding. Looking forward to hearing the Big primaltap if they do one.

Pretty sure they will, at least that's been the case with the previous little plugins. Took awhile for Micro Shift to arrive, so I guess we're looking at second semester here.

For all those who don't know how to deal with tempo-ms conversions... Just take 60,000 and divide by your bpm. This will give you your MS for quarter notes. Then just multiply and divide to get 1/8th or 1/2 note delays.

Ex.

60,0000/120 bpm = 500 MS (quarter note), 250 (eighth note), etc.

This is a cool little plugin, and it sounds good too. I downloaded it last week.

I'd never tried a real hardware Lexicon primetime, but I've used plenty of hardware Lexicon PCM 42's before.

And of course there is no sync to tempo, or entering in a bpm, that is for lazy people, and it wouldn't be true to the original.

Back in the day, you'd have to enter the milliseconds in manually. Most engineers knew these figures in their head for the most common tempos without even looking them up. Or you can just do it by ear, which any engineer should be able to do, if they have ears.

I was also experimenting and I placed a Microshift plugin on the insert of the Primaltap and I like how that sounds, nice and wide.
