Do the notes always cut off after about 10 seconds or do I maybe have an old version? I downloaded version 1.3, installed it, then downloaded the patch for v1.32 and substituted the .dll file - is that all I need to do?
I think at one point, right after 1.3 came out, there was either a problem with it or the download was actually 1.2., even though it was labelled 1.3---I had the same preset problem. The 1.3 version on the site now though is definitely 1.3 and works for me with all of the presets. I use the 32 bit version bridged in my 64 bit DAW, since for some reason the native 64 bit version (especially on the release) sounds kind of odd.
That being said, this a really good sounding piano --especially for free!! Props to the Dev.!
OK, I just re-checked the labelling on the actual dll file currently in my VST folder (Windows 32 bit version). It also says 18.104.22.168 even though the zip said 1.3. BUT....all the presets load and are working properly for me in Studio One Prof. 2.0.6.
If my recollection is right, I think the only preset bank that won't work would be the original "kvrer" one, which was superceded by a newer one on that same page. All the rest of the preset banks should work.
I downloaded all the different Piano sets from KVR here but they don't show in Piano one, version 1,32. I got FXP files from the sets, inserted them in Piano One's Folder, but they do not show as presets in the VSTi, only the Default, which sounds awesomely Great, thank you, and a few included numbered Patches that deliver a strange volume boost noise when I play them (Ok, maybe because it's a demo) that I could silence by moving the Attack slider each time but I see no changes in the parameters and the sound is the same as the Default.
I'm using Acoustica Mixcraft Pro Studio 6 as my DAW and all my VSTis 32 bits load and play perfectly.
My PC is: Intel i7, 870 on Windows 7 64 bits, with 6GB DDR3 RAM.
Am I doing something wrong? Is there a way to install them so that they show and load in Piano One? A special folder (re-) naming, a specific location where to put them?
Thank you so much for any help and for such a great product!
You have to manually add each preset into the patch #. The Preset always appears as fxp file which you have to use load instruments option (maybe it has another name in other DAW)to load them. It will not automatically recognized by the plugin
Alex, do you have a VST folder? Yes? The whole PianoOne13 folder has to be copied or moved into that VST folder. I don't know what DAW you use (I use Mixcraft 6, I created mine) but I believe every DAW has a VST plugins Folder, be it installed by default by the program or one that you already created.
Sorry cannot help you with the other DAWs. Help should be on its way soon...
This is EXACTLY what happened to me when I first added the patches. So I opened "Piano one" inside my DAW and manually assigned the patches (I downloaded) to the numbered (empty) patch banks under the "presets" drop down menu.
I have downloaded Piano One and installed it in my VST folder. I have tried using it in a couple of different DAWs but can't get any sound. In both cases I can see the keyboard keys move in response to the events sequence but the sound is completely dead. I haven't had this issue with the various other VST instruments I use and I can't work out what I am doing wrong with Piano One.
I'm still in the world of 32bit but your point about the location of the whole folder may be the problem - I can't remember whether I put the whole folder in the VST folder or just the dll. I'll check it out when I get home later.
Anyway, if you're using Mixcraft, only 32 bits VSTs are usable. I have Windows 7 64bits, but I believe in the VST world, it works accordingly to your DAWs' capacity. Some can use 64 bits, some 32bits only. As for any other DAW, check in the "About ...." section or ask around..
