I would say yes, but when I use it on way too many tracks 20 or more, I do tend to use the freeze function to relieve the CPU !!! but I can load up 10-15 instances no problem apart from all the other stuff that is going on, FX plugins galore !

My experience too. I like it best on the 2buss (stupid word) nowadays, GP9 at 30 IPS. I often a/b on individual tracks and decide to not use it a lot of the time.

That's the exact setting I usually use 1/2", Gp9 at 30ips.....every once in a while I use 15ips. I tend to use Cranesong Phoenix or the UAD Studer more on individual tracks where needed.

Thanks all,

I did repair disk permission and it solved my problem. Now i can load about 15 vtm in a project but i think i can increase without any problem. i also armed the audio track and it also actually helps.

Thank everyone for the help and tips you provided me with

I use and love Nebula, including the R2R tape suite. Something to keep in mind though is that the nebula tape emulators give the harmonic and spectral response but they don't compress the transients. Neb is not totally there when it comes to compression.

Are you sure? Because FG-X shows up in my DAW as not 32bit.. I thought at this point they were all 64

It's been 64 bit on Mac for as long as I've had it.

What would you guys recommend if I only use a SSL bus comp and a VTM on my 2 bus? I'm thinking VTM into the SSL?

If you want to emulate using these hardwares in a mix situation it would be SSL first. The logic here is you send the tracks from the multitrack tape recorder through the console's channels, strap a bus compressor on the mix bus and print the mix to the two track tape recorder. But I think you should move the plugins around and listen to what it does to the sound.

It's unusable on logic 9 unfortunately, just kind of slows everything down until it crashes

Nice. I just bought VTM (+VCC) and can't even open Logic as VTM crashes it.

Thanks!

I feel kinda dumb, as I've never really mixed off tape, but whatever this plugin does is amazing. My mix sounds 2D without it. I have no idea what is actually happing other than it fattens up and sort of adds a weird compression effects that brings some of the lower mids to the front in a nice way.

I seriously think I could mix better with just the VCC and the VTM and a couple of EQ/comps. Gonna buy the VCC soon.

CPU usage is pretty steep, but it could be my MBP acting up.

There is a 30% discount this week, but I'm going to give it a miss, because it doesn't work and that's a deal breaker

That is odd.
VTM works fine here (32 and 64-bit)
10.8.3
9.1.8
