Yeah strange ... I edited my post two or three times and now I have 4 posts :tu: Admin please ...

By the way ... the problem with the presets is gone. I dont know what happend.
I think we know what happened. :hihi:
Do not underestimate the ghost in the machine :scared: You can program your code on "best practices" but sometimes weird things happen ... :ud:

But all in all I have to say that Cubase 9.5 and Windows 10 is a very stable basis for making music.

So, why is MIDI learn definitely possible on other VST3 synths? What is u-he doing differently? VPS Avenger's system comes to mind... works the same on both versions.

They announce 128 parameters as "MIDI controllers" to the host and then pretend that they're already learned. This has the disadvantage that the plug-in needs to double housekeep, as VST3 does not allow to have two parameters mapped to the same controller. It is, strictly spoken, against the specs. That is, if the controlled parameter changes, the VST has to emit a parameter change to the actual target parameter from the DSP-part, which is against the design, and which is ultimately not supported by the standard.

As we offer channel aware VST control, we originally announced 2048 (16 x 128) parameters to the host, and that is what we would have to do again in order to do MIDI Learn.

We spoke to Steinberg several times and each time we were discouraged to do this. As we had trouble with VST3 in the past, we wanted to stay "on specs". Hence, no MIDI Learn, even if Steinberg's own offerings violate their own rules.

However, of course, MIDI Assignments are possible, just like in any other format. It's only the "Teaching" part which is not operational.

To clarify: MIDI Learn does not exist in VST3. Any VST that pretends to do this has already learned all parameters to the host beforehand, essentially violating specs and slowing things down.

Is it possible that LFO Single cycle behaving differently in the new update?

It is like in free or random mode however phase is set to 0.
Something with poly notes because if I play a single note it's OK,
then at the third or fourth note it is loosing sync as it would be random.

I was browsing thru my Divine Diva set when I found this strange behavior at the BPM patches,
and I am sure that I was saving the patches correctly before the set was released.

Could you maybe send me that preset to viktor[at]u-he.com and I'll check and compare?
Thanks

You are genius Viktor !!!

Problem SOLVED: it was my little X-Key keyboard. Didn't think before it could make
polyphony problems!

Cheers, :D

Is Zebra 2.8 final?
Some issues popped up for users so I've been holding off on downloading thinking there may be a 2.8.1 on the way.

Much appreciated!

Is there a way to route the fx output, let's say on "bus 1" to another vsti output 3/4?
