After about 4 years and I think 3 different DAW computers, and much effort and cursing, I finally got the latest version of iLok's license manager to run...…
And so I have been installing some various VST and VSTi I have purchased/won over time- (including Hybrid3 and Vacuum Pro from AIR FWIW.)
So far, so good. But will I ever really use them? That's the question.
Maybe I need to go on an Electronic/EDM tangent. I dunno.
It did allow me to load some cool plug ins I have never been able to make work though.....
Off to experiment and see if things are "stable"
