Rack 2.0.2 changes

Working on Linux as well

After reinstalling 2.0.2 it is working within Cubase. I guess i did something wrong. Sorry for the trouble.

FX VST unusable in Ableton 11. Crashes the DAW and Ableton hides the plug-in on relaunch. Not fixed by moving the VST out and re-scanning.

Are you on Mac or Windows because I’m using it on Mac here.

I also just discovered this… Windows 10 w/ Ableton Live 11.0.12 and Rack 2 Pro 2.0.2

FX vst crashes Live during VST2 scan process on startup. Removing the FX vst dll file from the vst plugin folder and relaunching Live works. Re-adding the FX vst dll and rescanning plugins from Live settings will cause Live to crash.

Do you have beta builds of VCV installed? Also what audio driver are you using?

I cannot replicate these problems with exactly the same versions.

Try removing your Rack 2 plugins directory and letting Rack redownload them all again.

Nope I cleaned everything out once Rack 2 was released and started fresh.

Live just decided to boot without issue just now, but odd that for several times in a row just now Live crashed. I cant find any error in the Live log files it creates in its crash reports either.

I tried one more time just now and Live started like it should with the Rack 2 and FX vsts in place.

Edit - audio driver in Live is ASIO and i have a Komplete Audio 6

  1. Ableton 11.0.11 didn’t start when I upgraded to Rack 2.0.2.
  2. not on the second start either.
  3. but third time, it started. and has been starting with no problems since.

Some Windows users with ASIO installed were struggling but I wasn’t clear on the details as I couldn’t verify. Glad to hear it seems to be resolved and if you have any further issues bugs/crashes can be reported at VCV - Support

Same for me on Mac and the Waveform Free DAW and also in Reaper.

Ah, good to know. Sad but good to have confirmed. Hope it’ll be fixed.

I’m very close to buying VCV Rack 2 Pro - I use Cubase Pro 11 on Windows 10. Bit concerned someone here said they can’t use it in Cubase - why not?

my understanding is that Rack is currently VST2 only and Steinberg have said with the next version of Cubase they will no longer support VST2, only VST3. They’re trying to get the market to move away from VST 2, but it’s going to be a pretty unpopular move as VST3 breaks some stuff that people used to get certain functionality in their plugins.

But, my understanding is there will be a VCV VST3 at some point, possibly AU too, just wasn’t on release day.

Edit: It will only affect users on native Apple Silicon

This ?

or this ?

Well I’m in no hurry to update Cubase to 12 - it’ll be at least a year - and maybe by then - IF I want to update then a VST3 will be available. THanks for the info.

Where did you see Steinberg say this? This seems highly unlikely.

No. Rack has always been 64 bits. There has never been any 32 bit software from VCV that I know of.

sorry I half remembered it, it only applies to Cubase on native Apple Silicon such as the M1 cpu

Yet another reason I’m glad I’m on Windows! :muscle:

Cubase 11 is saying that VCV 2 vst is a 32bit plugin…
