I honestly don’t know what is happening.
This is what I want to do:
IO = 2 in (Bass , Vocals) 5 out (Bass, Vocals, Click, Pre-recorded media[stereo])
I have 2 racks. Bass and vocals. They use the same set of VSTs every time with different patches / settings.
Click and pre-recorded media get played through the media player.
When I switch between songs, sometimes (often) There is no sound from 1 or more of the racks, instruments, vocals, media, etc. The end result there is no output from the respected input. It seems to be random and not repeatable with any kind of frequency.
The “fix” seems to be to “power cycle” in the app. Of course I have to have queue the sound guy to mute the board because of the clipping and I have to check the monitoring to make sure everything is working before he un-mutes.
As mentioned in the other train-wreck of a thread, moving forward, the idea of using VSTs for keyboards is 100% scrubbed, and that has nothing to do with Cantabile.
The VST Bass processing is 99% scrubbed as there is outboard gear that is just way more stable and sounds better and nothing do with cantabile. I am auditioning several units this week and I am certain 1 of them will be chosen.
VST vocal processing is a relatively new idea, but we have outboard gear for that. We are just looking for ways to transport less gear.
Media playback is a brand new idea and there is also very stable outboard gear to handle this.
The one outstanding item is sending MIDI program changes for the set list, and I am probably looking at the media playback device to do that.
