Wow, this seems incredible, can't wait to play this with the Linnstrument!

Was super excited to try new version, as since I bought it aalto has essentially been unusable for me with the hanging notes. Unfortunately, the new version crashes reaper. Bummer.


I recently purchased both Aalto and Virta and love them both.

However, I have been getting stuck notes in Aalto. This is happening in both Reaper and Usine Hollyhock 2.

I noticed that using a "fixed buffer" setting solved the problem in another software, although I am unable to determine whether Reaper or Usine has that setting or something approximating it. I've adjusted the buffer setting, but that doesn't seem to have an effect in either.

I'm a relative newbie to computer music in general, so I'm wondering if I'm missing something obvious.

Many thanks,

It turned out that it was only crashing in MPE mode. I had never had problems with Kaivo in demo mode, but when I bought it, it crashed reaper too. I'm not sure what happened, but both are working now, I think since I updated Reaper. Have no idea what this was all about, but it appears to be resolved. I couldn't be happier with this software now, particularly using it with the Linnstrument. Thanks for this amazing stuff.

Thanks Randy. Unfortunately, tried the new update and it is still crashing reaper. It works better in Usine Hollyhock, but after 5 or 10 minutes it seems to crash in that (although it doesn't crash the DAW). I am using windows 7 FYI. I am hoping to migrate to Mac in 2017, but in the meantime...

Thanks for the response. I'll look forward to the new release (yes I'm on windows).

The design of this software is a wonder to behold. It sounds so unusually great and is also so inviting to experiment with and relatively easy to get a grip on for someone who is just learning about synthesis. I have really been blown away by it.

Many thanks, Steve
