Logic Pro & Virtual Guitarist Electric new
      #179389 - 08/09/05 03:23 PM
I've just upgraded to Logic Pro and a G5, so have the wonderful job of reinstalling everything.

Anyone had any issues with Steinberg Virtual Guitarist Elec Edition?

An Os x installer is on the cd - the installer runs but nothing appears in logic. It installs a VST plug in.

The steinberg site is useless - so I've got to look for help elsewhere.

Any ideas?????

Shane

Logic doesn't support VST's.

You'll need to get a wrapper for it FxPansion do one that is very good.

Good luck,

why do they bother to include an os x installer then? no mention of that anywhere on their site, docmentation etc.

They haven't even released an AU version. Annoys me that I have to spend $99 to use something I'd already purchased.

Because it's Steinberg.

The VST will work in DP, Cubase or any other non apple, non digidesign program for OS X. You're just out of luck using them natively within Logic.

Sorry,

Why do they include an OS X installer?

because OTHER applications in OS X DO support VST, like their own Cubase SX3 & Nuendo

VST is still valid technology in OS X, although plug ins need to be written specifically for OS X....

the FXpansion VST-AU wrapper is very good, and not all that expensive, and opens the door to a whole heap of other plug ins as well.

Don't get the hump when i tell you it's going to be expensive, it's not my fault , you picked the site/building/room â
