I can open BFD stereo and it works fine. But when in Pro Tools I launch BFD rewire, and it keeps asking for my serial number. It won't let me access any part of BFD. It keeps asking for a serial number, and never lets me access anything, like the drum kits. Even after I've entered the serial number a thousand times.
I using Windows Vista Service Pack 1
Pro Tools 8
Hmm, your serial works fine here too in standalone... I can only think that the rewire app is somehow finding an older version of BFD.dll than the one in your PT RTAS plugin folder - check that C:\Program Files\FXpansion\BFD\BFD All.dll is version 1.5.49.
You know that you don't need to use rewire for BFD in either PT7 or PT8 - Rewire is only needed for PT 6.4 users to help them get multiple outputs. After PT 6.7, multiple outs was introduced to RTAS.
For PT7/PT8, we strongly recommend using bfd as an RTAS plugin only.
I have a question for BFD normal performance:
A Mini Mac + Mac OS X Version 10.4 Processor 1.42 GHz Memory Ram 1 GB DDR
Recording Software Protools LE 7 + MBox as Interfase.
My BFD is a 1.5 Version.
I am working with Protools with no problems for a couple of years.
I have BFD conected in an instrument track and sounds great through it.
I just iported a vocal track with no prug-ins but it crashes and it seems there I am not going to be able to add more tracks.
It crashes multiple times stating this:
You are running out of CPU Power. Remove some RTS plug-ins or increase the CPU Usage Limit in the Playback Engine Dialog Box. Error (-9128)
Although I've increased the Buffer Size to the max (1024 samples) it continues crashing.
Oh oh, important thing - 1.5.49 is not rated for protools, there's a bug in the RTAS adapter. We did 1.5.49 for DP users, so the AU adapter got a good kicking, but I missed some stuff in the new BFD2-style RTAS adapters in BFD1. We have a 1.5.50 coming very soon with the fix for PT!
Please use 1.5.46!! Sorry! Only just become aware of this one in the last week or so.
hey, i'm having the same serial number problem.
Everytime i open BFD in Pro-Tools 8 it asks for my registration details and once it's in (if it can, sometimes it doesn't let me type anything) it say "registered succesfully" then when i click on something, ANYTHING it asks for it again!
i'm using PT8 with BFD 1.5.46 on Vista 4x2.6GHz, 8GB RAM
I'm having this issue as well. BFD Stereo standalone works fine. While in PT8 on Vista it continually asks for the serial number. I've installed the newest update but the different BFD DLLs seem to have different version numbers. What's the fix for this?
I have the same issue.
I'm on 7 x64 and using Live 8.
Did an upgrade with the latest upgrade and the DLL version is 18.104.22.168
Works fine in standalone but continually asking for serial when going through Live.
Am I doing something wrong?
