TC powercore on 10.8 ?
      #1070201 - 14/10/13 07:14 AM
Anyone tried this ?

I know the powercore is officially only supported up to 10.6 , but after hanging on to 10.6 for years now , it's time to move on (for various reasons)

Would hate to leave some of my beloved plugins behind , but that's life I guess .

Sharing your experiences will be much appreciated

cheers ,

Does it require hardware drivers? If so, they would need to be 64-bit, otherwise Mountain Lion won't see the hardware.

If the drivers aren't 64-bit compatible, then it's unlikely it would work.

yes it needs drivers , and an OSX 64 bit compatible version exists , but they stopped supporting the format in the OS10.6 period , so there is officially no more support for 10.8 .

That said , the latest update to the PoCo driver was posted recently , june 2013 , so they did something , but no mention of 10.8 compatibility on the site .

I'm just looking for feedback from users who tried it …. anyone ?
I have a PCI mk2 btw

cheers

Oh ok - it's likely it will work, but yeah you'll need to get some PC users to chime in.

You could try posting on gearslutz or something too...

Almost can't believe nobody's actually using TC powercore anymore over here … I guess I'll just give it a go and see what happens then .

I'm running my Poco Firewire fine in 10.8.5 if that helps.

I'm running my PoCo FW under 10.8.5 in Logic 9 and it all seems to work. I have 32Lives, which (in case you aren't aware) acts like a bridge between 32bit plugins and 64bit hosts. It says on their website that it supports TC powercore plugins. But none of the Powercore plugins seems to work under Logic X once wrapped. But in 32bit hosts it's fine.

The Powercore is VERY sensetive to the order that other FW periferals are switched on, not something that was a problem before. If it is turned on after my soundcard it will cause the whole system to hang, requiring a forced restart with the power button. Other than that it seems fine when up and running, as stable as it ever was so long as switch on is done in the right order.

Whilst on the PoCo topic, anyone know of a really good rich lush FX reverb? The Classic Verb in the PoCo is the main one I've not been able to replace. Have tried various things, but not found anything that works as well for those really rich, lush and dense sounding FX reverbs.

Thanks
