Hollywood Choirs Plugin Question

Post by UilleannB » Mon Apr 30, 2018 10:04 pm

Hello. Has anyone bought Hollywood Choirs? I did, and the sound is fantastic. Can't wait to use it, but I am having an issue. While I can load and play the vowels and consonants by themselves from within Mixcraft, the Wordbuilder doesn't make a sound and seems not really to react to the keyboard if used from the plugin. If I start the Play 6 engine stand alone app however, I can use the wordbuilder too, so I figured there must be a conflict between Mixcraft and the plugin. I wonder if somebody bought this library and experienced a similar problem and maybe already found a solution for it?

A few years ago EWQL broke the word builder on Symphonic Choirs for quite a few DAWs with one of their 'improvements'. This may be a similar issue. Suggest you file a support ticket with Acoustica.

I had the same problem. It only works when you are in record mode.

Great, thanks. A step further. Now we need to find out, whether this is a Mixcraft issue or a Play issue.

Hi,

Is it a focus issue? If you select the plugin interface (rather than Mixcraft's main window), does that help? Is there some setting in Play that would affect this?

Hello. I tried it.

No. It only makes a sound when recording.

That's what I don't know. If it produces sounds when recording, or used as a stand alone app, I would think it would be Mixcraft that has something it doesn't like.
