Hello Forum I'm newbie, I installed free alpha on my MacBook Pro and now Pro Tools wont work> Is there some setting I missed?
The new page for Alpha and Free Alpha is this one :
The choice among both is made using the tabs at the bottom of the page.
does anyone know if the alpha can work with other DAWs? So far in my research it appears Pro Tools is a requirement, but why would they limit it? I'm using Ableton Live 9.
Here at home:
- with Cantabile Lite: no problem.
- With Band-In-A-Box 2013: no problem.
- With Magix Samplitude Music Studio 17: no problem.
- With Mutools Mulab: No problem.
- With SAVIHost: no problem.
- With VSTHost: No problem.
- With BigTick Zen: No problem.
Beware! Like many VST's Free Alpha is provided to be installed as 32-bit but also to be installed as 64-bit (in the case of FreeAlpha you must launch the same installer twice and make your choice each time).
- 32-bit VSTs must be used only with 32-bit DAWs.
- 64-bit VSTs must be used only with 64-bit SAWs.
So... always the same recurrent question which in 95% of the cases resolve the problem: are you sure that you try to use FreeAlpha 32-bit (named "freealpha.dll") with Ableton Live Lite 32-bit and that you try to use FreeAlpha 64-bit (named "freealpha 64.dll") with Ableton Live Lite 64-bit?

blackwinny, thanks very much for the reply. (I use Ableton Live 9 Suite, 32-bit, by the way.) I read the 'Read Me' system requirements for Alpha too quickly, misreading that ProTools was required for it to work. .. my bad - it works just fine. i'm trying out the free version as I'm keen to use its microtuning capabilities.
