OK have installed bitwig demo as it allows you to select the vst folder.

This is the log.

Please, start Bitwig in the background, remove all of your links, create one new link and show me the messages. Also, the contents of the ${HOME}/.config/airwave/airwave.conf file would be useful for me.

ok got that come up in the log but also WINE has popped up a window - see screenshot. Also notice bitwig is stuck updating the .vst folder. - when I click show details on that wine pop up it remains stuck 'loading detailed information'

Feels like we're getting somewhere though, it didn't actually try to fire up the plugin before :)

its working!!!

it took a while to load up in bitwig but it got there eventually - also when I insert the plugin that wine popup appears but the plugin does actually insert....

:)

Any ideas what that Wine pop up could be?

This window means that VST has crashed. It may be an error in the Airwave or it may be a WINE issue. To "unstuck" the Bitwig after the crash you could kill the "BitwigStudioHost" process (the parent process of zombified airwave-host-32.exe). I will check the TRackS3 Black 76 plugin tonight.
I suggest you to try install the Voxengo plugins. They are known to work without any issues with WINE and Airwave.

ok that pop up comes up every time i try to add a plugin - have attached the backtrace if that's any use.

Thankyou for your help :)

It seems that you have some conflict with UltraISO program. Could you install VST plugins to the separate WINE prefix? I also recommend you to use a 32-bit WINE prefix instead of a 64-bit one.

thankyou! -

I've uninstalled that iso software (was trying to install alicia keys with wine, NI use a windows iso loader to install and I just couldn't get it to work under wine at all)

airwave is now happily chunking through my vsts.... . . . aaaaand....

FIXED!

wonderful!

Ardour3 still doesn't see any vsts but I'm suspecting Ardour4 might be more successful as bitwig is working perfectly... you might have sold that to me **edit - HOLY COW not for that price!!!** I'll need to investigate it further :)

oh the joys of linux!

I glad to hear that you've fixed your issues!

PS: to install software from the ISO file you can just mount this ISO:

Code: Select all

sudo modprobe loop
sudo mkdir /mnt/iso
sudo mount -o loop -t iso9660 /path/to/image.iso /mnt/iso


EDIT: BTW, I received a feedback that NI Kontakt and Alicia's Keys are working fine with Airwave.
Tips to install the NI Kontakt:
1. Run winecfg and switch windows version to the Windows 7.
2. Install the NI Kontakt 5.3.1 (higher versions don't work).
3. Run winecfg again and switch windows version back to the Windows XP (important for 5.3.1)

thanks for the info but that mounting procedure doesn't work because the installer installs NIs own ISO mounter which the installer of alicias keys looks for. It's *that* iso mounter which doesn't work in WINE, very frustrating because I'm convinced it would work otherwise ;)

Thanks for creating this software!

It seems to mostly be working (slowly) with omnisphere and bitwig under debian stable (wine 1.6) however many of the sound sources (samples) don't load. Does anyone else have this problem?

Airwave wasn't tested with wine 1.6, I even don't know if it supports the XEMBED protocol. I suggest you to try wine 1.7 from the "ubuntu-wine" PPA.
BTW is there a trial version of Omnisphere?

There's no demo of Omnisphere, the reason they give is that it's 50 gigs. It does run in 'demo mode' until you authorize it.
It runs well for the most part. Doesn't crash and all the controls work so far, just that some of the samples won't load.
I guess I will try the Ubuntu PPA. It's not going to hose the system and wine 1.8 is due in a month or two anyway.

Long story short: copying the program directory from a working install fixed the problem, I suspect my optical drive.

Omnisphere 1.5-8d is working perfectly with debian Jessie (now stable), wine 1.6.x, Airwave 1.1.1-1 and Bitwig 1.7.
