Eos 1.4.0 for OS X Now Available...

by Chris Randall

If you hit your account in the Audio Damage store, you can grab the Eos 1.4.0 installer for OS X. This installer throws what Apple terms "Standard (32/64-bit Intel)" builds of both the VST and AU. These work in every 64-bit host we could find on the OS X platform, both VST and AudioUnit. The sum total of these are Logic, Cubase 5/6, Reaper, Plogue Bidule, and Studio One, best I'm aware.

In any case, the version number change should force a re-scan, but if you run in to any issues at all, drop me a line via the AD [email protected] address, or if you have some info that everyone will benefit from, feel free to post it here.

We're going to do Discord3 and Replicant1.5 next, because they are built with the same framework as Eos, and it should be fairly easy to give them this treatment. We're going to wait a couple days, though, to make sure this Eos version doesn't have any problems before we do, though.

And finally, note that if you haven't updated Eos in the last update round (v1.1.0) then you need to make preparations before using this one. Your existing projects that use Eos won't break, but the preset manager is somewhat different, and as a result, Eos will return to its default state (the first preset, "This Budd's For You.") Also, any presets you've created for Eos won't load. There's nothing we can do about this, due to a fundamental architecture change internally. So plan accordingly.

Chris, I can't get it to show up in Logic 9.1.3 running 64-bit. It scanned as expected launching 32-bit Logic, but no scan and nothing showing up in the AU manager under 64-bit.

Also, is there any way you can get the AD Authorizer app to not send itself to the back of all open windows/apps after its dialog box shows up?

See, that's a good example of a letter that should have been sent to the [email protected] address. Write me there, and I'll talk you through the steps for getting it recognized.

Done. Sorry for the bandwidth...

Congratulations (and thank you!) for figuring out the 64 bit issues! The 64-bit AU will be big news for Logic 9 users, as a lot of them refuse to use 32-bit plugins at this point. Which probably has more to do with the wonkiness of the 32-bit bridge than anything else, but hey, it's not like I could code up something better than the bridge...

It's not like Apple could, either.

Seriously, I hope they have a major rewrite in store for Logic, because it is getting to be really fucking hinky.

after the 64 bit updates the RTAS versions are coming right? [ducks to avoid flying ipad]

still 32bit here. i haven't booted anything in 64 bit ever. not gonna happen anytime soon for me. still too many apps in 32 bit only. my laptop does 71 tracks reliably w/the logic benchmark test at 32 bit. i don't feel lacking

i've had more logic crashes lately so agree w/the logic is getting hinky comment. i hope the rewrite is in the pipeline as well.

Is that "won't load at all" or "won't load automatically, but by hand everything's ok"?

Sorry to bash in public - but is there _any_ way at all one could load previously created presets? Would it be possible to create a converter for the job? Anything else than [opening the presets in my laptop -> writing down the values -> entering them again on a studio computer] would be great.

I haven't been able to test the plugin yet due to several issues, but if I've saved a song in Logic with certain settings, will EOS remember those settings? If not, fuck.

Also, I'd like to know how other plugin manufacturers have cleared similar situations, just out of curiosity.

Email sent.

One thing was left out from my post due to brackets, sorry for reposting of sorts:
