I love the Vienna Smart Orchestra (VSO). But I have the following issue that I hope someone on this forum might assist me with: First, in terms of hardware and software, I'm using Cubase 8.5, on an iMac running Mojave (BTW, the issue was also noticed while running El Capitan, which was the reason I decided to update the Mac OS). Now, the problem: let's say I choose a presets (e.g., "Ice Palace."), I record (everything sounds great... ), then when I export an Audio Mixdown, I find that (a) none of the effects (i.e., compressor, reverb, etc.) have been applied, and (b) when I go back to the Synchron player and play unsing "Ice Palace," I discover that the preset—too—has lost its lush effects, and thus it now sounds flat in comparison. 

Then, when I click on "Ice Palace" again in the menu, once again, the effects reappear. However, no matter what I do, the effects are not applied on the Audio Mixdown. And, oftentimes, the VSO will go silent; at that point, neither the virtual keyboard, nor the external one will work—a restart of the computer is then needed. 

I have made sure to download and install the lasted releases by Vienna. 

Has anyone else experienced this issue? Thanks!


PS, I've used the VSO both as a plug in, and using Vienna Ensemble.

I have the same problem on Cubase 9 Pro and Win 10.
Can anybody help?

Hi Paul,

Just downloaded the latest update, and I ran 2 quick tests on MAC OS 10.14.3 (Mojave). The presets export correctly and the Synchron player no longer cancels out the effects. Looks like (crossing fingers and toes) the issue has been fixed.

Thank you!
