I tested Sidekick V3 and was very happy of the result, I sold my hardware compressor and bought Sidekick V41.
When I open Sidekick v41 and close it down by selecting the instance in the mixersection and press delete I get the folowwing error message:
Warning Message: Ouch. The VST plugin ‘Twisted Lemon: SideKick41 (from Twisted Lemon)’ caused a fatal error or crash: VST event/function: ‘Dispatch’, Thread: ‘GUI’
Warning Message: Please save the current document under a !new! name to prevent losing important data. Renoise will silently ignore any following errors from this plug-in.
Warning Message: It’s most likely that this is a bug in the VST plugin, so please report this problem to the authors of this plug-in.
I had to shrink the log.txt file by deleting text because it was to large to attach to this post. I bought the plugin 2 days ago, I deleted the days before that.
The plugin needs the “Static Buffer” compatibility option to work correctly. Of course it should not crash, but thats nothing we can take care of. Could you please also report this to Twisted Lemon?
Instantiate a sidekick, click on the “?”, then enable the “Use Static Buffers” option in the dialog. You only have to do this once.
Because its communicating with other instances, you should also disable the autosuspend option and disable the multi processor support…
Well, I’m pretty happy with the dbAudioware Sidechain Compressor. It works around the current routing limitations within Renoise because it has multiple instances communicating with each other. I’m producing house music, in which sidechaining often is an important issue, and this plugin gives me great results so far.
