Gosh I just love sitting down in the fall and writing. Opening up the studio windows, get a nice crisp breeze, and write some serious chill. You can tell by a lot of my titles! Don’t get me wrong I love the Summer and prefer warming weather but here in NC after 5+ months of heat and humidity you start craving some cooler weather.
Unfortunately I ran into a speed bump lately with the studio Mac. I figured I’d upgrade to Mavericks before Apple pulls it off the site in favor of Yosemite. I tend to try to keep the Mac Pro one version behind because I figure the software makers should have upgraded their software by then. Unfortunately with the upgrade to Cubase 7.5 and Mavericks a couple of older plugins took a dump. My Cubase VST path seemed to have reset itself and/or it couldn’t find older plugins. After extensively talking with support on the matter they claim the software should still work. I tried several things and even manually unpackaged some of them. It kept showing the older version in Cubase Plugin information. I decided to reboot and then Voila! they showed up. Oh wait… I can’t hear anything now, WTF Cubase??? I close Cubase and restart. Plugins are broken again. How is that possible??? I finally shut down the damn thing for the night. At least it appears I am on the right track. No pun intended!
Anyway, more from TFR Records Studios later!!
