Quick one: having the 64-build be seen/work in Bitwig (Linux Mint 18, Ubuntu-based)

Cheers.

Just checked in Ubuntu 16.04 x64 and Bitwig Studio 2.3.1 and OB-Xd x64 works just fine!

It certainly is not visible in Bitwig 2.3.1 (and previous versions) :

Code: Select all

% ll ~/vst/discoDSP

       31 Apr 16  2017 Bliss64.so -> /B3/Plugins/DiscoDSP/Bliss64.so*
       38 Mar 12 10:02 DiscoveryPro64.so -> /B3/Plugins/DiscoDSP/DiscoveryPro64.so*
     4096 Dec 10 10:59 OB-Xd/
 11985292 Jan 18 10:19 Obxd64.so*
       33 Apr 16  2017 Vertigo64.so -> /B3/Plugins/DiscoDSP/Vertigo64.so*
bitwigOBXD.jpg
This is on Linux Mint 18 (Ubuntu-based). I placed the .so object directly in the ~/vst/ directory just to make sure that a symlink would not, by any remote chance, mess things up.

The 32-bit is seen version is seen and works (not present in this screenshot), but as I reported here, it tends to make a popping noise from time to time which prevents from using it. This popping noise was also experienced by mclstr in Ubuntu Studio.

I can try installing Linux Mint 18 but there are several flavours. I guess you're running Cinnamon?

Greetings,

Sorry to play the broken record here, but I just tested my local build of OBXD in BWS 2.3 (not 2.3.1). I made a short 2-bar loop and stepped through the patches in the FMR OB-Xa Patch Book bank. No pops, and the GUI was open all the time (roughly ten minutes or so). Obviously my test is not conclusive but the synth appears to behave correctly in BWS running on Fedora 23.

Best,
dp

No, it's the KDE version.

Good. At least on my side I get all the u-he synths working properly since the 'beginning' 2 years ago, thorough Linux Mint 17 and 18, and Bitwig 1.x, 2.x versions and that includes Repro-1 and Repro-5. As far as important matters are covered, it's excellent.

I use to get the OBXD on a few tracks in Linux Mint 17 and when a synth gets on a few tracks it usually means a minimum of 4 hours of actively playing the synth, exploring patches, jamming along, etc. As in hitting keyboard notes on a MIDI keyboard. Never got a problem with OBXD.

This time around though in LM 18 KDE, I can play, and then record tracks, and at one point in time, maybe 45 minutes, maybe 60, maybe 90 minutes away, it will issue a POP that goes through the sound system stack and directly at full capacity to the audio monitoring.

One time is a surprise. A better surprise when headphones are used, in a way, since they cost $150 instead of $1000 for the speakers. And headphones are limited by the volume knob on their preamp. But it makes a chilling impression, like one which undoubtedly laboratory rats feel in experiments when they step on an electrical passageway. Hmmmm... not going to go there anymore. :?

Once a Tracktion DAW Essential, the EQ, did that. Tracktion replied that they'll put a limiter to prevent such outbursts, even though they did not knew how it happened. For months I did not use any of those Tracktion plugins. Then there was an update, I gave it a couple of tries with the headphones and started using them. So far, it's OK, but I goto the regular u-he, OvertoneDSP and Loomer plugins first. Did they found out the cause or did they put a limiter of some sort ? I do not know.

Cheers.

I'm running into issues with Linux Mint 18 KDE and VMWare so I won't be able to test, sorry :(

Thanks for trying. I also run a virtual Linux Mint (17, though) in VMWare for other purposes and it runs fine. Although I never tried to get a VM machine interacting at low latencies with an audio card to make music. I still 'believe' that it could be awkward at best.

Cheers.

Latest Linux builds should work in Mint KDE just fine.
