I finally had time to try Overbridge again since the beta. My Digitone finally worked as expected. I was able to use Overbridge with the Digitone as the audio interface and also with ASIO, and other interfaces. I was able to sync everything easily which was great because that was one of my main problems in the past. I love that I can separate all 4 tracks, inputs, fx, and master. The best part and what I most looked forward to was that I can modulate all settings with FL Studio automation curves.
The problems started after a good while I had a crash. The DN stopped sending sound and the only way to get it back was to restart. Luckily total recall is working great too. I tried the combo again and everything was smooth for a while. Browsing presets through the plugin is a breeze. Eventually, I had another crash. After repeating this a few times I went online to see if I could find a fix. Someone on youtube said to route the audio directly to the mixer from the soundcard (this can only be done with the DN as the audio card). Whit this set up I was able to get a stable workflow but the problems with getting things to sync up perfectly came back. When routing through overbridge instead of the sound card to the mixer the DN works exactly like any other VST and it’s easy to work without worrying about sync issues. But eventually, I got a crash again even with audio to mixer from the DN. seems like the fastest way to get a crash was to mess with voice unison.
The scary part was the last time my DN crash it wouldn’t restart after. I let sit there with the power cord off for a while and when I tried it again it was fine. I don’t want to mess with it anymore since I’m not sure if all the restarting will hurt the DN. I guess I’ll wait for another update. I’ve seen others complain about crashes with other DAWs. Does anyone have any ideas on how to get a solid workflow? I’m gonna submit a support ticket as well just wanted to see what everyone else’s experience is.
