I’m new to Cantabile. I have 2 laptops, both 64bit, one is an Asus k55n, the other an HP15. Both running Windows 10, current releases. I need to set up a microphone for communications with a doctor via telemed. When I’ve tried this in the past the transmit volume is very low and the Doc can barely hear it. Apparently this problem microphone problem started with an april 2018 Win 10 update and effects many. My primary laptop is the Asus. I really don’t want to invest in a hardware preamp to resolve this problem so I am trying to use a software fix first. After hunting around I decided on Voicemeeter Banana. This seems reasonably good but I have some noise in a few spots that need notching out. I downloaded Cantabile as a VST host and Reaper for the plugins. I got it set up and essentially working but have to push it to the limits to get it right. All these components played nicely together but I still want improve to the audio quality. To that end I dug out the HP. The mic does work better there but its still on the low side. Noise (e.g. 60Hz) is present so I downloaded VM, Cantabile and Reaper for this computer. All downloads and installations are 64 bit and have been rechecked multiple times. I rebooted after each install. VM and Cantabile play nicely together but when I want to input a plugin they don’t show up in the plugin window. I used the same path method successfully used on the asus with no luck. I then copied the plugins and put them in a folder in documents wondering if it was an attribute problem. They were all set to read only which shouldn’t be a problem but I did change the permissions to eliminate this possibility. After each change the system was rebooted. That didn’t work either. I then tried to browse to a folder with a plugin I wanted (reaeq) and selected it and received the following error message:
Failed to load plugin ‘C:\Users\Ken\Documents\VST Plugins\FX\reaeq.dll’ - plugin failed to initialize (error code 13209)
This was also tried searching for the plugins in the plugins in the program files directory with same results.
All software is the same version as the other laptop. I’ve started them as administrator. The only difference I can think of is one is an AMD cpu and the other an Intel. If that were the issue I would expect the Asus with the AMD processor would be the problem but it’s not.
I’ve seen one or two similar posts but nothing exactly the same with a solution.
Does anyone have any thoughts?
