In the last few weeks the Black Rooster Dev team took the time to work on stabilization on our free plugin and the release candidates of the VLA-2A and our very own beta tracker. The Canary has undergone some tweaking and bugfixing and will now run more stable, especially for those who had issues on AU. You will find the current version (1.0.2) for download in your account. Thank you for your bug reports and patience on our latest release.

Totally screwed up my Ableton Live 9.5
Im still stuck after i uninstalled Canary, uninstalled Live and installed Live again
I could not even fit it with the install program (option REPAIR was not available)

I'm still stuck, i need infos on how to uninstall your licence manager. (which is probably the cause of it)

Another thing, you should change the font used on your web site and in the VST for showing serial and HD id.
I and L are alike as well as 0 and O.

Thanks for your feedback.

First of all, we're working on fixing your Ableton 9.5 issue.

Concerning the font there's one thing you should know: Our Activation System never generates the numbers 0 or 1. So O alway equals the letter O and I always equals the letter I.

Hope this helps.

My DAW gives me a warning that Canary is using legacy VST code and will not install it.

Thanks for your feedback.

Cab you please let us know which DAW you are using? We're already working on VST3 support.

Hope this helps.
