Migrating to 64 Bit

As more and more plug-in manufacturers are dropping support for 32 bit, in the forseeable future Synfire will make the 64 bit Audio Engine its system default. That is, new installations and racks will use the 64 bit engine, while the 32 bit engine remains as an optional choice (currently it's the other way around). This article outlines how to migrate your existing projects and (global) racks to 64 bit. 

List of Multi-Client Audio & MIDI Drivers (Windows)

There is a known limitation on Windows with many drivers for audio and MIDI hardware: They do not support multi-client operation. This means Synfire and a DAW can not play audio or send/receive MIDI to the same device at the same time. This problem only arises when the DAW and Synfire are run at the same time. It is also not specific to Synfire. On Windows in general, running more than one DAW at a time is a challenge. This problem does not exist on OS X.

Message: "The Audio Engine does no report back to Synfire"

If you get a message similar to this:

Also check if your firewall (if any) allows local connections on Quit the Audio Engine manually, if the problem persists. Click OK to retry.

Connecting HN with VSTi's

There are already several videos from Cognitone about the sound setup for Harmony Navigator:

Here is an additional video that also may be helpful. It demonstrates how to connect Harmony Navigator with VST instruments which are hosted at Cubase. The connection between HN and Cubase is done via the MIDI loopback driver loopbe30, which comes with HN2 advanced.
