Are there more known issues?
We are aware of some issues that will eventually be fixed in future updates. This additional information will help you to quickly find a workaround, so you get the results you are looking for.
- Some presets sometimes don't make a sound when they are loaded. This has been experienced with Presets "Old Honky" and "Plumber Run". ➜ Workaround is to go back and forth in the preset list which will eventually make the preset work.
- Trial workflow: Starting the trial from title list (title browser within the plugin frame) does work, the button within the list will, however, not update until re-instantiating the plug-in/restarting the DAW. All other buttons/state displays will update instantly.
- Browser (Windows only): Browser state (mainly title list) doesn’t update until DAW is being reset.
- Global Preset Display: Sometimes the display shows "..." and "0/20 Introduction" instead of the loaded preset and category (only visually) when reinstantiating or reloading a project
- Pro Tools internal presets: Not working reliably
All Usynth titles:
- You need to be signed in to the UJAM App in order to start the trial time.
- When saving a preset with the same name as a factory preset results in creating a preset of the same name in the user category
- Saving a preset without entering a name at all will result in a preset of the current name being added to the user category BUT if a user preset of that name already exists, it will be overwritten without warning
- There may be rare issues while saving presets.
(Logic 10.7.2 on Mac OS 12 M1-based Systems only)
- Sometimes automating parameters will not apply the current value when starting to record automation (Cubase only).
- Set sequencer rate does not reflect the content of the actual sequences in all cases.
- Preset saving dialogue is not centered correctly when the user interface is being resized.
- Usynth parameters are not accessible via automation in the DAW Reason.
