Re: Does anyone the correct settings for superwave plugins and op-x pro and op-x pro II in Devicecompatibility.xml ?

For betas it's good practice to install them in a different folder. I'll make it a priority to add an installer checkbox to enable or disable overwriting this file. Or I'll add a user version of this file. I know it's late but I suspect the super wave wants Fxp only. I didn't realize this overwrite ...

Correct - plugins.xml is Forte's to modify as it discovers plugins. DeviceCompatibility is the user file you can customize (Forte doesn't write this.)

Re: Will saving racks in "Use offline" mode retain audio/MIDI preferences

It should. The way offline works is that it creates "virtual" audio/midi ports with the identity of the missing hardware.

Please be sure and use backups and try it out, but its certainly intended to work.

That's mysterious - Forte racks hold binary data fed to VSTs to configure them and manages them by a CRC hash value. This is a mis-match but I've never seen it before.

Re: What happened to the pictures in Forte 4 scene view?

Thanks for answering this. Additionally in Forte 4 you can assign images to "higher level" things like songs or sets and the "lower" items like scenes override them. So you can now have a multi-scene song with a consistent background image.

Re: Why can't I run Forte 4 32 bit alongside Forte 64 bit?

Forte today intentionally enforces a "one instance" policy because so many audio and MIDI devices are single client and the support burden of handling the various complex cases didn't seem to be a priority. If you wish you may "suggest" it on our support page.

Correct. Forte's RCF files are really XML formatted files. This error means the parser couldn't load it because it is mal-formed. If you can find an XML editor, you can load the file and look at it. Perhaps its obvious what's wrong.

Hard to tell without some experimentation.

Does it take long if you just start and stop forte?
Particular plugins (and removing a plugin doesn't necessarily unload it right away)
Particular MIDI ports?

How long are you waiting and does it eventually close?
