Is there a published VSTi compatability list for Live-4?

Post by Sheridan » Wed Aug 04, 2004 8:47 pm

I'm having issues getting some of my VSTi's to work properly in Live-4. One of my favorites, Fxpansion DR-008 drum machine completely hangs the program. It would be nice to know which ones are known to work and which ones don't. Thanks.

let's try and make this thread the list.

for me so far, so good with:

impOSCar
Absynth 2
Crystal
Albino

*EDIT* and just added these and they're working perfectly:
Stylus
Atmosphere
Trilogy

That's a great idea! :D I can say that I've had no problem whatsoever with the NI Komplete toolset so far, and the one's I've tested include:

Kontakt
Kompakt
Intakt
Battery
Reaktor

I own all of the NI stuff so I'll post the outcome of others as I go.

Nice ones tj, all of the those work great for me too...

Also,

z3ta (though some times some buzzing when changing patches on the fly, wouldn't be good for performance, but for writing is ok)
vanguard
v-station
sytrus (through FL)
cameleon

I will post more as I try them all...sadly Rhino does not work....can't have it all....I wish people would realized that on this forum....Let the good folks at Ableton know what doesn't work, and remind them from time to time, but quit whining...

Sadly, none of my beloved plugins that came with Cubase-SX work. :cry: Must be coz AL-4 doesn't have enough horsepower & gas to run them. :lol:

Try, Steinberg doesn't license the included VSTi to be used under any other HOST. Actually, LIVE tends to have more available horsepower then my Cubase SX2. All other Steinberg VSTi work great under LIVE.

I honestly don't know. This is the only forum I visit besides the Les Paul forum. There must be some other "Sheridan's" out there I guess. What forums are they? :o

I tried these this evening and they worked great:

East West Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra (Kompakt)
Steinberg Virtual Guitarist

BFD gave me a lot of performance issues, but that's nothing new with that resource hog.
