Workaround – Rollback to NVIDIA Drivers 335.23 available here:http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/73780/en-us
Occasional, System Dependent, GUI Displacements.
Explanation – In some scenarios,
depending on your system, the VTM’s GUI may become displaced upon
instantiation or clicking the Show / Hide Reels. If VTM is on a secondary
display, the Presets menu may become displaced to the primary
cases, simply closing and reopening the GUI will resolve the issue. If the
it is still stuck in this state after closing and reopening the GUI,
clicking any visible parameter like a knob or switch will usually resolve
As the GUI Displacements occur differently on
each system / DAW configuration, our development team is currently building
profiles for each unique issue so they may be fixed accordingly.
[VTM-438] – VST3
Version Requires 10% more CPU than VST2
Explanation – On Mac systems in VST hosts, the VST3
version of VTM requires 10% more CPU than the VST2 version. Some VST hosts
experience CPU Spikes when using the VST3 version of VTM.
[VTM-435] – Meters
Stuck at Max Value
If a signal is particularly hot, the VTM’s VU Meters may become
stuck at their maximum value. This does not prevent the plugin from
processing audio or responding to user interface adjustments.
