Known Problems in S-GEAR


S-Gear initialiazation may fail in Logic Pro X.  Updating Logic to the latest version should resolve the problem.

If the DAW project contains both VST2 and VST3 plug-ins then a crash can occur shortly after loading the project.

The only workaround currently is to avoid mixing plug-in formats in the same project.

S-Gear will not reload a bank with a period '.' in the name.

There is no workaround.  The problem will be fixed in a later release.

Using parameter automation with an offline render operation may cause convolver drop-outs, where the processed sound drops to straight-through processing.

To avoid this problem, select the 'Realtime' option in the Logic render configuration.


The problem affects both Logic 9 and 10 (Logic Pro X).


S-GEAR requires some particular settings to be applied in the Fruity Loops wrapper settings:

In wrapper settings on upper left corner of plugin. Make sure the 'Use fixed size buffers' option is highlighted.

This setting is required because the S-GEAR convolver relies on fixed size audio blocks for efficient processing.
