I'm using the Vortex full version in Reaper 4 x64 (Win 7 x64.) I can't get it to make a sound. not only does it not look like the version in the manual but half the features appear to be missing. I couldn't find any presets in Vortex nor any way to load them via the GUI so I loaded the fxb in Reaper but this absolutely did nothing. I've RTFM but I still haven't a clue how to get Vortex to work. I thought Geist was complicated but you need a PhD to get this thing working it seems. :bang:

I bought ARP as well and that works fine in Reaper triggering Alchemy. Just so you know I'm not a complete noob at this plugin lark.

Any help (and I mean ANY) would be appreciated.

Eureka! I checked my VST folder and found that I had an old Beta version of Vortex still in the VST folder. Reaper hadn't scanned the full version because of this. It's working fine now that I've removed the beta. :oops:

UPDATE: Been playing with Vortex for awhile now. Using the internal sounds and controlling Alchemy. This is a great synth/arp. 8)

Make that, "Alas, not yet." The 'beast' is there, maybe just some tweaking to reveal the 'beauty.'

Optimistic as ever my friend :) The lack of interest certainly knocked the wind out of my sails, but it is building again slowly but surely!
