Looked neat and I liked the description so I downloaded it. The installation sucks, I tried a few times and it's just more of a pain than it's worth. Why not make it easy to install like 99% of plugins?
Sounds really great! (used it in front of some Thermionik amps).
But I get quite random CPU spikes around every 10 secs or so (Studio One v2 64, Win 7 64, most recent Java Runtime Environment 8.112) after a while. Not complaining, just letting you know. It doesn't crash just hits the CPU for a sec (incl. noise/dropout).
Apart from that: if this is your first plugin I hope you'll do a Fuzz one day with some sort of resonator and an octaver. Would pay for that if it had Malefica's sound quality. Put a wizard on it and purple knobs...
DrSense, thank you for problem report and good words! We are happy to read this words.
We will try to tune perfomance in next version of Malefica plug-in (v.1.0.2). As a workaround you can try to turn off Java garbage collector, i think these spikes because of its doing. For this, please, edit Malefica.ini and add line: JVMOption1=-Xnoclassgc to the end of file. After that it's necessary to re-start your host (Studio One v2). Speaking of which, this problem is not reproduced on our environments. It'd be very helpful if you would try this w/a and notify us of result :-) Thank you.
Yes, Fuzz pedal with octaver is in our roadmap! How did you guess it?)) But we don't know yet when we start build it... Please subscribe us to make sure not to miss it.
My system's a little dated (Phenom II X6, 16gig RAM) but it's good enough to run all the stuff. I have to say that I once had real trouble with Java when I had to install Eclipse for uni and it just didn't work properly. As I never changed something to Java I dismissed it as one of those random things you get every now and then and worked with a laptop instead...maybe there's something broken since the first installation of Java on my main system...
I didn't even guess it just wished for it - subbed.
Didn't change anything. I am quite sure that there is something messed up deep in the registry of Windows that configures a part of Java - especially since Malefica isn't the only Java-based piece of software that suffers from problems...some other things won't even start.
So...I just wanted to let you know that I used Malefica to test my software-demovideo setup. It's mostly a test of my setup but almost all presets and a little knob turning here and there are demoed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abyj3iw5V2g.
