ForumsSoftware ← finally bought Aalto, few issues...

hi, long time demo user, just got my license. can't wait to actually save stuff! (been taking screen grabs of cool presets for last few months..)

one thing i noticed with the demo was the greyed-out presets, just figured it was a demo limitation. but i have the same issue with the full version.

screenshot here:

i tried the Convert Presets, and it says there are 34 found presets. as soon as i hit 'convert', Ableton 8.2.2 crashes, and when i re-open Aalto, a new 'test-temp-xxxxxxxx' preset appears in the list.

any idea whats going on here?


OSX 10.6.8
Aalto 1.2.6 VST

Hmm, never seen this before. Odd.

The demo is supposed to be able to access all the presets. If a folder is greyed out, it means there are no readable files in there. So my guess is something went wrong during the demo install.

What I would do is remove the presets completely. This means throwing away

  • /Library/Audio/Presets/Madrona Labs/Aalto
  • (home)/Library/Audio/Presets/Madrona Labs/Aalto

Then reinstall from your registered installer.

If you get another crash please send the log to support@madronalabs.

by the way
the manual (p.30) explains the preset files and what's readable by VST / AU versions and what the conversion does.

thanks randy - deleting the 2 folders and re-installing did the track.
