So far I don't seem to be able to get Oatmeal to see these lovely patches. For example, I put the Snow&Rust folder in the same folder (vst plugins) as I have my oatweal.dll file, but Oatmeal shows the original 17 programs. The rest are shown as 'init17' and numbers up to 63. I'm sure it's a simple adjustment. I just don't know what it is. Can anyone help me out?

I downloaded oatmeal (all versions i found) and tried all, but each time I try to use the vst, it says 'vst bridge connection lost'. Then the VST is unusable. I tried after to tweak the default skin, no succes.
I'm using cubase 7.5 64-bits on windows7. Is any one has any ideas to solve the problem?

Oatmeal is 32-bit, not 64-bit. It is on your 32-bit version of Cubase that it must be used, not on 64-bit version of Cubase.

I kniw, but cubase has a bridge to make 32-bits VST working in 64-bits. It's the only VST not working, and i cant fix that issue! Cubase forum sent me in oatmeal forum. In like a ping pong ball right now.

Ha Ok. I didn't know that there is an internal bridge in Cubase. My bad... But, perhaps that the bridge doesn't warranty a good work with very old plugins. The last time that Oatmeal has been updated was in 2008 if I recall correctly. So maybe this plugin is not very optimized for the memory managements of today, so it leads to incompatibility in the memory allocations. I think seriously that it's a problem of that kind. You should perhaps see if the internal bridge of Cubase allows some tweaking for some very old plugins having a weird memory management. I can't affirm, being not a Cubase user, so it's simply a suggestion to look into the help manual. Otherwise I suggest you to ask directly on the Steinberg forum, Oatmeal being a widely known plugin it is certain that on the Steinberg forum (I think that it is certainly more exactly here) someone will tell you with precision what happens and how to address that issue.

Thank you so much for you help. Yep looks to be in 2008 for the last update. Do you know if I can tweak the default skin? because I tried to change the default skin, oatmeal loaded, but it was all whit window. I could play and change patches, but didn't have acces to knobs and oatmeal interface, if i can say that. I will chanllenge on cubase forum as you suggested.

Yes, and Oatmeal is by the way very known to have already many awesome skins. I think that they all are made with the two freewares SkinMan and KnobMan (both quite easy to use, and very funny to experiment, spending hours to discover these two free gems is not time lost, it is a real hobby to enjoy).

So I just have to swap skins in the default folder in the oatmeal folder?

It's exactly that. You can also take this file in my web space, it contains Oatmeal but also many banks, patches, and skins for Oatmeal. You have just to unzip it in your VST directory and discover all that. And I highly suggest you to read all the pages of this thread, probably that you'll find yet other nice informations on Oatmeal, its patches and skins. The thread began in 2006 so of course many things are old (but interesting to read)... but the last pages of that same thread are just of a few weeks ago, meaning that the thread can remain still alive.
