I'm running v 1.5.0 build 11 32-bit in Win7 (32-bit). Eco runs fine standalone and in Sonar X1 Producer, but in Xlutop Chainer there is no sound output whatsoever. I know Chainer has trouble with VST3 and, I believe, even VST2.3. I have not been able to tell what VST version Eco is, so I am not sure how to track down the problem.
If anyone knows anything about this, I'd appreciate hearing, as Chainer is small and works well for trying plugins with some effects out quickly without bringing up a full-blown DAW.
Thanks. VST 2.4 is probably the issue. Xlutop hasn't been updated in a very long time, though it's still available for sale and I'm pretty sure I remember it having trouble when VST 2.3 plugins began coming out. BTW, I don't believe it's that Eco makes no sound; I don't believe Eco is even receiving Midi information, as Eco meters don't respond at all, as if I weren't even pressing keys, if I remember correctly.
This may be naive, but is it a major problem to maintain compatibility with earlier versions of VST?
