new PC (Win7) - new installation of Renoise (3.0.1). I like to keep things separated so I split my vst’s into 32 bit and 64 bit. I installed Renoise x86 and x64 on this new machine and set the vst-paths accordingly - Renoise x86 -> 32 bit vst / Renoise x64 -> 64 bit vst.
I did that because i read at the forums that you are able to install x64 and x86 version of renoise side by side.
Problem is : obviously I can not set different paths for my vst-plugins. It seems that renoise x64 shares its config with its x86 counterpart.
When changing the path in Renoise x86 to “/path/to/32-bit/vsts/” it scans this directory and everything is fine.
When opening Renoise x64, the path to the plugins is saved as “/path/to/32-bit/vsts/” even if it was a clean install and started the first time.
When chaning the path to “/path/to/64-bit/vsts”, closing the x64 version and starting the x86 version again the plugin path of the x86 version says “/path/to/64-bit/vsts”.
Changing this entry back to “/path/to/32-bit/vsts” it immediatly starts scanning for plugins.
Now we can start at 1) again and the procedure repeats.
I tested that on another machine with Renoise 3.0.1 and Renoise 3.0.0 and the behaviour is exactly the same.
Bug or feature?
