Howdy, just had an e-mail for Audio Ease. Altiverb 6 will not work under Lion. Version 7 is in the works and will! When? well anybody's guess! Spectrasonics Software Insts ie. Omnispehere RMX etc. is in the works! Currently they will not work...NI Kontakt 4 will work BUT only in 32bit mode...64bit later Sept maybe sooner. Mr C
I have just seen the MOTU site, audio interfaces are out of commission PCI Firewire and I presume USB. Working on it. Melodyne seems ok. Many are stuck with 32bit mode but work. Its all the dynamics and EQ we use everyday Sonnx etc. Just time Mr. C
Just as an FYI, the only plugs I've had trouble with since installing Lion are that Flux plugins, Sonnox and XILS plugins crashed AU validation.
Play 3, Waves, Tone 2, Native Instruments* (yes, I've read the notice on the NI website), Rob Papen, Lin Plug, FXPansion, Camel Audio, Arturia, Acustica, Sonalksis, Ohm Force, IK, SPL, Softube, are running fine so far in both 32 and 64 bit modes.
I do always run the most current versions of all plugins.
* I don't use all my NI plugs any more, what is on my hard drive are Reaktor and Absynth.
UAD2 plugins work but the control center is behaving a bit strange telling me that I don't have administration rights.
I can add that Pitch'n Time LE, Speakerphone2 and PSP MasterQ doesn't validate but works anyway. As usual they are in a "not compatible" folder and you have to ignore the pop-up box on the way in to Logic.
I have written to all the companies that I have noticed problems with and most have responded and replied that they "are working on it" which is suppport language and means why did you upgrade that soon idiot
My reply would be how else are we going to fix it if noone uses it and I have worked 5-6 hours today without any singns of instability.
Just thought I'd chime in here as far as 3rd party compatibility...
Soundtoys, who make an awesome bundle of sound processor/mangling/echoing plugs released this today:
"The Lion is out of the cage and it looks like it's very cool, but...
We wanted our users to know that the current V4.1.1 version of our software is NOT working with Lion and Logic. It appears it's a minor issue with AudioUnits validation only and we are testing a version that seems to run smoothly and hope to have it available as soon as possible after confirming it's solid.
We try to be as bleeding edge as possible but if you're using your SoundToys plug-ins in mixes we suggest you hold off on your upgrade to Lion and we'll let you know when our new Lion/Logic compatible version is available. We'll also be testing and staying on top of the other hosts as they make their move to Lion.
Sonnox has just mailed me to say that they have updated their plugins and they now validate. I have downloaded the ones have and indeed they do
PSP MasterQ also validates as long as you don't run the iLok version.
Now I'm waiting for Speakerphone 2, Pitch'n Time and Powercore 01. The last one is could turn out to be a problem since the platform is dead but the other two are hopefully working on it. They are certainly in the more pricey end of companies where a certain level of support could be expected. In spite of that the people from Audio Ease says there is no time frame yet which is either not good enough or really honest depending on your expectations
Still they all work, they just don't validate
No I am not but I was probably the first one to write to them and tell them the plugins didn't validate.
Ã got a mail from support starting like this "Further to our recent emails, we have prepared some new Mac installers for your Oxford EQ and Dynamics X8 Edition plug-ins".
Why they are telling you that no updates are available I don't know, I'm not in the studio now but I seem to remember the numbers were 1.42 and 1.72 if that makes any sense at all.
