this one never worked for me. after installing the thing just gives me a no response and then crashes. the bridged vst shows me a small renoise like gui but also does nothing maybe because the host vcv isnt starting/running. looks very good and would be glad to try this out one day.

I was running VCV Rack 0.5.1, was pretty stable (standalone)

It’s my first “modular”. Never played with real or soft modulars, however I was able to produce some digital farts:

Not sure what version you are using, however I will give it a try to 0.6.2b which is beta.

Maybe you could post the log output (if present) as an issue in the github repository here? https://github.com/VCVRack/Rack/issues

There seems to be some open issues for Win/Mac regarding startup problems. I used the 0.5.1 linux version although.

Overall, looks like a very promising piece of software, given it has not yet reached 1.0!

Tried 0.6.2b.

The VST plugin is silent and there is no real GUI yet (I guess the bridge is still in the works) and I cannot make it to connect to the jack audio server on Linux in standalone mode.

I acknowledge that wink.png

I might dig into why it doesn’t connect to jack :’)

EDIT: Everything works in stand-alone mode, I am just blind!

old cheap thinkpad machine with windows 7 running, maybe thats the problem here. will check your link because it annoys me that it doesnt work.

I don’t have windows here, cannot help. Good luck in finding the issue, might be it is just settings! unsure.png

thanks for helping me out. might think about a linux distro too, just to get this thing running. :wink:


(beatpanic) #11

No worries. If you would need help with linux setup just send me a DM :wink:
