I don't know if anyone else uses Dmitry Sches software Thorn (vsti), Diversion (vsti), Tantra (Multi-FX) here, but I think his software is just about the best synthesis and FX software I've come across.
Being a one man operation he has decided to get support by letting Plugin Alliance sell his software exclusively, etc etc. Anyway, my only previous experience with them was an inability to log in to the account I created several years ago, which sent my head spinning like it was in The Exorcist, so I gave up. As he had updated 'Thorn' to v1.2 I tried to log in, change password and yet again, all I got was a message saying 'no account exists' after I'd created one. After several days they have finally sorted it out and I was able to sign into the account and download and authorise 'Thorn' and some free plugins they have on the site. Now the problem is that every time I try to load that version of Thorn there is a 30 second plus wait between altering any of the controls and the changes to occur. This does not happen with version 1.1.0 (which does not have the Plugin Alliance authorisation system). I also tried one of the free FX plugins from them and whilst it worked it was jerky and after I'd made a couple of adjustments it crashed Mixcraft, so I think it is down to their system. So I was just wondering if anyone else had used this system and found this problem ?
