Hallo guys,

I have being using the free Version of VE6 since long time with Steinberg-Cubase and MakeMusic-Finale.

I upgraded a couple of days ago to VE-Pro 7.

I have two questions:

1) Is there a fast way to convert my VE6 projects to VE-Pro 7, like with the feature "Convert Project to Vienna Instruments-Pro" for the time I upgraded from VI to VI-Pro?

I have almost 50-60 projects, saved with VE6-Server (64-bit), that should be otherwise manually build up (each instance, channel etc.) for them to be opened with VE-Pro 7-Server (64-bit).   

2) Until now, when I load a saved project in Cubase/Finale, which is using the VE6-Service, the VE6-Service app and the saved instances load automatically with the project.

I noticed that does not work with VE-Pro 7. The server should be already running, before I load the Cubase/Finale project. When I forget, I should close the project, run the server and reload the project for the connection to be established. 

Greetings and thanks for any suggestions!

Hi, 

1) The best way to go is to save your VE 6 projects (careful: naming conventions) and load them into VE Pro, then exchange your VE plug-in for a VE Pro plug-in and connect. 

2) Yes, VE Pro needs to be started manually (also because we don't know which of your networked computers contain a running server). You can also open the VE Pro Server AFTER you loaded up Cubase, connections are always possible. 

Best,
Paul

Hallo Paul and thank you for the fast reply!

  • The #1 issue is solved and I need only 2-3 minutes to convert every project to VE-7 Pro.

"careful: naming conventions" : What  did you mean by that?

  • Issue #2: I can indeed open the VE Pro Server AFTER I loaded up Cubase/Finale.                                              In Finale I should just reconnect to the server. Thanks! 

  • So, if I understand correctly VE 6 could open and established the connections automatically, because it does not include the feature of running servers on multiple servers. VE Pro 7 on the contrary does.
    Correct?

Hi, 

Naming conventions: Just a reminder to use names that you can easily identify. 

"So, if I understand correctly VE 6 could open and established the connections automatically, because it does not include the feature of running servers on multiple servers. VE Pro 7 on the contrary does.
Correct?"

=> Correct.
=> VE only works on one computer, and we can therefore start the VE Service on that one computer. 

Best,
Paul
