Good Morning.

Today I unfortunately noticed that many of my presets are suddenly broken and are only 8kb in size. Yesterday everything was still running and today various presets are simply broken even though I have not saved anything new. This is an interesting phenomenon, especially because it was presets that has been ready for weeks and has not been loaded into the Avenger by me. It looks as if presets were selected and destroyed completely at random.

And more confusing is, that all destroyed presets have the same save time of 5:32:06 from today. :scared:

Can anyone else confirm that?
How can that be? :(
I hope you figure out what happened, pretty scary stuff. I have no clue what could cause that.

Are you on Mac or PC?

Years ago (probably still) I had an issue on my mac where I would notice lots of files were showing modified at a specific time... (if I recall around 2 am)......I of course at first wondered if I was being hacked etc.
Turned out to be some backup program I was using or maybe even time machine was modifying times at it read the files to do backups.
But I don't recall file sizes being changed. Then again this was years ago and I may not fully remember.
In my case it turned out to be benign.

Did you have backups of the files in more than one location? If so do all show the same changes?

I have backups. The backups are working. Only the content (my own) which gets loaded from Avenger Expansion Directory was "infected" by this. It was changed to the absolutely same time. 5:32:06 more than 30 presets. the content was just deleted, the filesize was about 8kb instead of 80kb. I could restore all because i always backup my work. But... What the hell was that? :D

Indeed. Hope it is not a virus. You of course have done virus scans?

Rene is on vacation.
I think he will respond later. But I have a hint.
I accidentally started an older version of Avenger 1.4. - Maybe it has something to do with it. :o

I have now deleted the old version. Let's hope it never happens again.

So pay attention preset makers. Do not run an older version. It seems that this has a negative impact on your presets.

I recently switched to Studio One 5 and was having lots of audio dropouts, crashes and issues. Eventually found that the culprit was Avenger. Both updated to latest versions but somehow every instance of Avenger in a project jumps to a really high (60 - 100%) cpu usage, even without playing any audio. This makes the whole project have dropouts glitches etc. After removing / freezing all instances of Avenger the problem was immediately solved.

Anyone else having the same issues? I've emailed Rene last Sunday, no reply yet but I now see he's on vacation so will wait for his response.

Something is up with the Avenger activation page - says 'error, service temporary not available. try again later'
A bit annoying as I wanted to have a play with it today!

The exported multisamples were also imported by Wavelab's resynthesis function to make the whole thing even softer.
Can't find any info about this function? What does it do? Where in Wavelab can I find it?
Thanks!

Hey guys. I just upgraded my motherboard, processor, GPU, and added some other things. Had to reinstall windows of course. Is there something I need to do with the CM container or the codemeter website to free up the licenses that were linked to my machine with it's old hardware? I gotta be honest, the CM website and containers confuse the hell out of me.

I think you were supposed to do that before the upgrade :(

Yeah. Stupid of me. I tried to deactivate all my online installers before the upgrade but somehow forgot to do Avenger. Any idea what happens when the license expires after the 90 day period? Do I get it back?
