VE PRO 7 on a single Machine and its Benefits

VM1 is really cool, I was fortunate enough to be a part of the Beta testing for VM1 v2 (which was just released).

1) No, you don't need to run it from iPad. You can simply load it on your main machine and it connects to any VEPro servers from there. You can run the iOS version as well, and it also connects to any of the VEPro servers. For example, you can have the iPad running VM1, which you can then use to control/view your servers. There was an issue with connecting to a local server on mac Catalina, but I'm hoping it was recently ironed out.

2) You don't need to run the Helper app any more from what I understand. Not sure how your scenario would work, but I would just load VM1 on your main rig, and then extend the VM1 window onto one of your additional screens.

3) Like 12 actual separate machines? Yikes! Regardless, the new app has a cool dropdown "tree" menu option that shows all of your connected servers. You can then open each one individually and open each instance/channel from there. It's pretty slick.

4) No. You can load available VI's/FX from within the app, but can't go into the actual plugin to make adjustments.

There's some quirks, such as you cannot solo a channel from within the app unless you are in stack mode. There's a still a few things that need to be ironed out, but overall, it's a really cool app for anyone running VEPro templates.
Thanks Jeremy. So I have taken the plunge, downloaded and installed the 3 files (2 of which are Apple dmg which I don't need as will be running it from Windows10). However, when I click on the VM1 Helper icon in Windows, all it does is start an app in the Notification Centre. Right clicking on the app doesn't give me any options to open up the main window. So how do I actually run it? I've looked at the various 'getting started' videos but there aren't any clues as to how to get this thing running.

I have temporarily disabled the firewall and antivirus software, but that makes no difference.

Thanks.

Ok. I've worked it out. Windows isn't yet supported!!!
They send you the main app to run from MacOS or IoS, with a listener / Helper app for Windows. Thats it.


So unless they decide to provide the main app to run in Windows, then sadly this is pretty useless for me right now. Money back time!!

Sorry, I honestly don't know, as I'm on Mac. On my mac, it just shows up as a regular App icon...I click on it, and it opens. I don't recall seeing anything about VM1 Helper when I used it, maybe it's a Windows thing. Did you get an updated manual for V2 as well? I noticed they only have the previous version of the manual on the website (from 2019). From what I understand though, it does work on Windows....their website even mentions Windows 7 and up.

Ok so I wrote to the guys at support, and they have admitted that Windows support won't be available for a while. Talk about misleading marketing etc. Even their website claims Windows support!! :shocked:

Anyway, I've offered to Beta test their Windows software, when its available. Meanwhile, I'll see if I can get a MacOS emulator to work on Windows10 :rofl:

Wow, that's really goofy. They need to update their website so that it's clearly understood.

TRDR (just the title).

I use VEP since version 6 on a single machine, and it has been great. I adore VSL! The fact I can go from Nuendo to Pro Tools without having to load my template data is cosmic. I also premix all the orchestral components (including Proc/FX) within VEP. It's such a great piece of software.
