To simplify, using 3.1 I lost settings data (not preset since I never saved it as a preset, just live settings in the song itself) between 5-3-19 and 5-7-19 after upgrading to 10.14.4.
I just noticed it while loading up 3.2 and looking to make sure all settings converted over to the new version.
The plugin is the AU version of bx_cleansweep v2: https://www.plugin-alliance.com/downloads/bx_cleansweep_v2
Anyway, if I open the song xml of the 5-3-19 version, the saved settings (on different tracks and samples) for this plugin are in the xml but won’t load in 3.1 or 3.2. Then when I open up the version saved on 5-7-19, the saved settings are gone (on all instances of the plugin) in the song xml.
Neither 3.1 or 3.2 will load up the correct settings with the 5-3-19 version.
I’ve tested this also by making a fresh song file in both 3.1 and 3.2, loaded a new instance of this plugin on the first track, made changes, saved the file and:
- Both versions retain their settings inside the xml
- 3.1 version, when loaded in 3.1 and 3.2, the saved settings don’t show up on the plugin instance
- 3.2 version, when loaded in 3.2, the saved settings DO show up on the plugin instance
To make it a little more confusing, I have a song last saved in 2017 with many instances of the AU version on many tracks, and those settings load up just fine using current version of macOS and both 3.1 and 3.2.
Hope that clears it up a bit, I’ve been doing tons of testing and with @ffx help I’ve learned a ton.
