Someone did this, to enable Spire, maybe it
would help with Serum also:

"Finally, I figured out how to use the latest version of Reveal Sound Spire with airwave. You need to replace d2d1.dll file in your ${WINEPREFIX}/drive_c/Windows/system32/"
directory by the original one (from Windows 7) and add a library override for it in winecfg."

I wonder if Serum or other devs with wine-troubled software
now use any Visual C++2015 in their creations?
Some wine gamers have needed it, or it's installed
dependencies, and found ways...

You need exactly this version of d2d1.dll:

arch: 32-bit
version: 6.1.7601.17514
size: 827904 bytes

Just writing to report that the following plugins don't render correctly. They look slightly pixelated w/missing text. They are still usable though:

- DSK Drumz Akoustik
- DSK Drumz Machinez

Crysalis synth does not load.

So how well does Omnisphere 2 run through here? I know on Github it says many presets are too slow with a decent laptop whatever "decent" is supposed to mean.

i just tried to run "Vielklang2" but i can´t load or drag any audio onto the plugin.

When i try to import a wav file, Airwave crashes giving the following output

Code: Select all

I'm getting:

Unhandled dispatch event: effSetBypass

For every plugin I try. Running airwave git from Manjaro (AUR). It has not been working for about 1 month now. Anyone getting airwave working reliably recently?

Hi everyone,

So far, I've been able to make the following VST work with Airwave in Bitwig :

CamelPhat (flawlessly)
Kontakt 5.3.1 (flawlessly)
Absynth 5.2.0 (flawlessly)
Massive 1.4.2 32bit version only (flawlessly)
Reaktor (giving me half-visible GUI sometimes, but I just close the window and reopen it with Bitwig dialog and it works)

Using wineHQ 2.0.1 and Airwave 1.3.3

I think Omnisphere 2 could work but I'm getting the "pasting response code" bug. It freezes the whole setup, I got to kill my Bitwig process.

Props to PhantomOne for the great work, I really enjoy to switch to Linux and get rid of that Windows crap.

Are folks having success with Airwave + [Linux] Bitwig 2.1?

I was using airwave extensively through Bitwig 2.0, but now none of my VSTs will register after upgrading [bitwig and wine]. I am very interested in debugging this, though I strongly suspect the problem is specific to Bitwig 2.1, as Airwave + the VSTs still work great through (for example) Renoise (shared VST folder). Examples: Kontakt, Massive (32-bit both). 64-bit host.

I may have to downgrade to Bitwig 2.0 if this persists! :(

Everything seems fine here with BWS 2.1.1 on Fedora 21 x86_64. I don't use many Airwave'd plugins these days but I keep these around for testing (and for their great sounds) :

Alchemy (the old one)
Corona (demo)
Sanford Bass Tightener
Synthmaster Player 2.8.8

No problems with those plugins Airwave'd in BWS 2.1.1.

Last night I updated to 2.1.1, and my airwave'd VSTs magically began working again. I can only hope this information may help someone else.
[info: airwave + 2.0 good. 2.1 bad. 2.1.1 good!]

*whew* Much relief. Very breathe.

If it's helpful - ie, you tried and failed to build it from source - I forked airwave and produced a patch to build it on a modern Ubuntu (16.04.2) host using wine-staging, as well as merging in nodiscc's doc updates. It has a hardcoded path in there, so not really ready for sharing, but hopefully if you run into problems with phantom-code's repo you would post an issue that I could see, and perhaps my patches will help. :)

i got lots of the KVR challenge distortions working

Komplete Ultimate 9 works

Did not get Serum working flawlessly, but it looked like it was possible

valhalla stuff worked

also, check out proteus vx

Junglist VST from ~2001

hickups are:
32bit/64bit wine and corresponding *.dlls... tricky game
libs and frameworks like vcredist and .net
d3d libs

Return to “Bitwig”
