Lives for gear
The thread I was actually referring to was definitely deleted, it was posted by a close friend who is one of the most knowledgeable multi DAW users I have encountered in many a year. His post simply outlined the issues he had encountered , some work arounds , etc. It was deleted without warning.
The first thread I linked to was moved and I relinked, it has now either been moved again or its deleted as well. According to the poster here who went off 1/2 cocked, its also been deleted.
The idiocy in deleted that thread was the issues being reported at the time were 100% valid, Steinberg had released C7 onto the market with a significant issue with the latest eLicenser ( not the one initially installed , an updated but still broken version ). The fix was posted 1 week later.
Not to mention one of the demos was created in "7.01" and is totally inoperable in 7.0 unless several of the plugins are disabled , so who exactly is BETA and QA this rollout is my question ? !!
There has been a flood of issues being reported simply because they have rushed it to market and have not crossed the t's and dotted the i's. Again the end users are finding issue in a few minutes that was totally missed by BETA / Q.A, it just isn't good enough IMO.
They are deleting and censoring commentary on the forum , I wouldn't be able to participate in the manner that some there have free reign to. So you do the math. Don't be fooled by any so called more open/positive vibe, its the same ole same ole, as soon as something they deem hits the "too hard basket" , its deleted/censored.
Swinging this back to the actual topic at hand, ASIO Guard testing, as soon as I get a clear breath. It will be over the XMas / New Year period, there will be at least one update to C7 by then so hopefully they will settle some of the mess in the meantime.
ASIO Guard is nothing like the Anticipative processing in Reaper , the anticipative engine is a highly refined multi-threading model , whereas ASIO Guard it is simply a mechanism for hybrid buffering on playback of the elements that it can actually work with . Also Reaper does not have any caveats attached to Multi Part Virtual Instruments / Streaming Samplers, etc , ohhh, and it works... :-)
