Acid Pro Next VST instruments are all completely broken

trappermarkelz wrote on 5/15/2019, 8:13 PM

I don't know if anyone else is experiencing this, but all of the projects I made with Acid Pro between Sept 2018 and March 2019 are now completely broken after upgrading to Acid Pro Next. Almost all of the VST instruments I used that came with Acid Pro 365 back in Sept, are now no longer loading. Many of them stopped working after the March minor version upgrade. After moving to Acid Pro Next, it's even worse.... The Analog Synth that still loads has every midi file set back to the default "Noisy Lead" with the default settings. You can imagine the chaos of broken this causes in all of my newest tracks. I don't even know where to begin fixing everything.

I really don't know what is happening with this. I can't imagine I'm the only one that finds the last two upgrades completely unusable. Is anyone else experiencing a complete inability to work with prior VST instruments?

It appears that all my installed VST effects are working fine... but the VST synths are either not loading, or if they load, all their prior settings are lost.

Yup none of my Magix VSTis work either.

Many, many strange bugs in the new version for me, have gone back to 8 until it gets a little more sorted.

Same for me loads of their vsts do not work, makes you wonder how they can release this product when its so broken ,and feedback from them is virtually zero

@trappermarkelz @andrew-phillips @weevil

There has been some new fixes come to the Beta forum which may fix this. For example most of my VSTs did not load in the release version of APN, but they do now - not that this helps you right now. However, when I am back home I can test that specific VSTIs are working as intended in the latest beta, and if not flag this up through the beta channel.

I still have AP8 installed, are you able to write up some steps to reproduce the issue - e.g. create new project, add VSTI "x", save project, open in APN, etc, etc.

For now, I went back to Acid Pro 8 and, while the presets are missing, the VSTs I needed to finish a few projects were there. AM-Munition is still not working on 8 or APN. When I contacted support, they did say there was a new beta build in testing that addresses the issues. @sheppo can you confirm if AM-Munition works in the new build?

I thought I had this synth in my collection, but it appears I don't have the Suite version of AP or APN. So cannot test it. Is it just Magix plugins provided with Suite that are causing issues?

As of right now, on 8.0.8 Build 29, the VST presets are still missing.. you are also correct that, now I can't find AM-Munition anywhere on my PC. Maybe it was removed? Hmmm that sucks... I used the heck out of that in mastering!

Ok I uninstalled and reinstalled the modeling suite which comes with AP8 and they now again all show as failed.

Thx for the reply, im using ap9 32 bit mainly now but had the same issues in 8,the vsts on board generally dont work no matter which way i try to work or change it,but then once in a blue moon it will decide to work,the simple delay doesnt work like it did in 7,i ve also tried to use the stereo delay,that doesnt work usually but has randonly once or twice,but can never re enact it

i have tried to add vst just by clicking ok or add and ok,but no step ever works

Greetings guys, I

'm coming from Acid 7. I was using the trial of Acid 9 64 bit until pointing the program to look for my VSTs installed on my second hard drive.. crashed it and would never open again. It was stuck on searching for VSTs on the loading screen and just crashed over and over.

Just got Acid Pro Next today and same deal, was up and running, although I couldn't get midi to work at all. This time put the VSTs in question on my main drive and was doing okay until I restarted and now it's "Acid Pro Next has stopped working" and will not open at all.

Does anyone know how to get some tech support?

@Adot - the contact link in the forum footer will take you to where you can contact support formally.

I'm back to using Acid Pro 8, the version that doesn't have VST presets... but at least all my VSTs work and my songs load with all their instrument settings. I just upgraded to 9 again (paid another $99) and none of my songs load correctly. All the VSTs are there now, but none of the settings are pulled from the project, so everything is at factory reset mode. Which is not usable at all. So I'm on the hunt for refunds and just sticking with the half-working version of 8.

@sheppo correct me if I'm wrong but I'm on the hook for like 12.99 to get any support from Magix. I've deleted and reinstalled Acid Pro Next several times at this point and it won't open at all. All I get is "Acid Pro Next has stopped working" - this is stupid frustrating.

 

Yes, click the link and get "Please enter the code from your support voucher."

Yep, none of my instruments load the settings from the previous session. I feel robbed. I have to manually load each instruments settings every session. It is pathetic. Magix now just released a new version, but no fix for this one. Are we seriously meant to buy this thing? WHAT ABOUT YOUR CUSTOMERS MAGIX?!!!! THis is dishonourable and greedy.
