BBC SO Pro 1.2.1 - can't set default preset to "None"
As above. When I set it to "None" and click Save, then close and open the plug-in again it has defaulted back to Violin 1 Leader. Is this a known fault? I prefer to set all my Spitfire plug-ins up to default to "No Preset Selected" on opening.
The same thing is happening with Hammers, which always defaults back to Ensembles.
All the others, as far as I can tell, seem to be working as expected.
I've tried setting the BBC to default to something wacky, such as Percussion: Harp and this seems to work, it's just the "None" option which doesn't work.
Am on macOS Big Sur using Logic 10.6.3. This problem has come to light after a clean re-install of the OS and subsequent repair of all my libraries.
This is an issue we are aware of and will be fixed in the next update (coming soon). If you can't wait that long, you can of course download the beta here: https://spitfireaudio.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360017698337-BBC-Symphony-Orchestra-Beta-for-M12
Will there be an option to reset all to keyswitch from CC range etc instead of having to go into each instrument, change it and save.
This would be a good update feature.0
@Joshua Beresford this option will not be a feature of the next update, however, I've passed this feature request onto the BBC SO team.1
Please note am also getting the problem with Hammers as well as BBC.0
Is there any ETA for this? I opened a thread about the same issue in July (https://community.spitfireaudio.com/discussion/535/default-preset-option-not-working) and to be honest, I find it quite absurd that there is no fix yet.
Wish there was at least an option to roll back to the previous version.0
It has been addressed in the next update for BBC which we are currently BETA testing. At the moment I don't have an ETA, but we are close to releasing it.
Any rough guesses on when the next update will be?
Won't hold you to a specific date or anything, just curious on a rough timeline.
Just a suggestion in the meantime for a workaround to avoid having to Load the Rather big patch of 'Violins 1' every time you open an instance of BBCSO, I have set default to 'Crotales', I'm fairly sure it's one of the smallest patches in the library and it loads a lot quicker than 'Violins 1'.
It's not as good as setting it to 'None' but it's close.
Thank you Angus.. Following that one. :-)0
This is now fixed in version 1.5.0, thanks Spitfire.
Now is there any chance you could fix the same issue in Hammers, please?0
I'm having a similar issue with BBCSO Core v1.5.0, except that it won't save any default preset I select and always initially loads Violins 1. Thanks in advance for any help!0
1.5.0 does resolve this issue in my experience. Can I ask what DAW and OS you are using?0
Can't confirm yet, since I'm unable to update - my Spitfire app doesn't even show there's a 1.5.0 version... I'm still on 1.2.1. I wonder how much I'll have to wait to get it.0
@theMidiTamer I can see its available in your App now.0
Thanks, I was finally able to update.
Unfortunately it looks like the problem still persists. I checked that I have 1.5.0 running. I went to the Settings page, selected NONE on Default preset, hit the Save button, the dialog window closes, but when I reopen it and go to Settings again, nothing has been saved, and the Default preset is still on "Strings: Violins 1".
Of course opening a new instance of BBC Symphony Orchestra, the "Strings: Violins 1" preset is loaded automatically.
Just FIY, other parameters in the Settings page are saved when I hit the Save button. Just the Default preset is not working.
Also tried Repair from my Spitfire App, no luck...0
@theMidiTamer what OS and DAW are you using?0
I'm on Windows 10, my DAW is Cubase Pro 10.5.0
I'm using Win7 64 bit and Cakewalk by Bandlab Version 2021.04 Build 175, 64 bit.0
Same issue here, can't save a default preset with BBCSO Core, v 1.5.0. Using Windows 10, DAW is Reaper 6.42.0
Just to add a data point, it works for me in Logic with v.1.5.0. After setting the preference to None, this is what I see when I add a new BBCSO instance:0
Here's a live example of setting the preference to None, and as soon as I switch to another tab (eg. Audio) and come back, the preference is not saved.0
@theMidiTamer I've tested this on Cubase 11 with our Windows machine and was able to set the Plugin to "None" (albeit with a Pro install). I noticed you've cut the version number off the bottom right, it would be helpful to see this to verify you are using 220.127.116.11
@theMidiTamer I've created a zendesk ticket for you to investigate this further.0
@haralddaviking and @Jonathan I've also created tickets for you both.
@KenJ I accidentally clicked on the same button for your question, but alas you do not experience the issue, so you can ignore any emails you get from Spitfire Zendesk!1
Thanks Angus. Yes, it seems to be working fine for me.0
This is not working for me still.
On BBCSO Core 1.5.0, M1 Pro, macOS Monterey, Logic Pro 10.7.2
Any modification to the default preset will end up in -
Would love to have it save on "None".
