Vital 1.5 public release

will the new update overwrite old vital and my older presets?

I don’t understand. So is Vital 1.5 early access or not? And where’s 1.5.4? I can only see 1.5.3 as Early access, and 1.0.8 as the latest stable…

i think 1.54 was removed because it was buggy. 1.5.3 seems to be the most current. maybe it’s under an ‘early’ heading but it is public.

I fixed some compatibilty with older Windows setups in 1.5.5. Not sure if it covers Windows 7 but can you try it out and let me know if it works?

Just tried 1.5.5.
Unfortunately, it still does not work under Win 7. Neither the VSTs nor the Standalone. Before installation, I set the default skin in the old version to avoid possible problems with graphics. Crashes on load.

I will hope for updates in the future.

is it because of some driver that Microsoft doesn’t maintain for W7?

Hi :slight_smile:
Just upped from 1.0.7 version to 1.5.1. It works as it should, but when I move the vst to my synths folder it magically sets back to version 1.07… Anything you or I could do to have my synths organised? :slight_smile: Thanks in advance <3

Look at your DAW settings and look at the search path settings for the plugins VST, VST3 and CLAP.
If the following exists in all of those paths, delete them all.
Vital vst3
Vital clap
Restart your DAW and confirm that Vital is no longer available.
Please install the new version.

<3 Thanks. That did the trick

What’s the minimum graphics card requirement on Windows 10? I’ve got an Nvidia GT610 and I get a black plugin window on 1.5.4. Resetting to default skin before installing 1.5.4 doesn’t help either.

Edit: I’ve run Open GL tests for this card via OpenGL Extensions Viewer 6.3 and it passes all tests from Opn GL 3.0 to OpenGL 4.5.

I’ve updated Vital with Vital Plus 1.5.5 for Windows obtained from the account page. I’m on Windows 11 22H2.

It crashes when I click the “Advanced” button, and even the “Matrix” except when I’m still in the Init preset (just after launching Vital). I don’t get any error, Vital just closes.

Hey everyone
Standalone and vst 3 crashes on v1.5 for me
when i go to advanced tab or scroll in the presets
never had issues before this update
the crash accrues randomly
1.07 was working great
is there anything i am missing or i could do to make it stop crash
thanks in advance

Dropped back to v1.5.3 - none of the crashes seen in v1.5.5 are present and everything is much more stable - so will stick with 1.5.3 for now

thanks i will try

Can you try redownloading and reinstalling?
I accidentally uploaded a broken build yesterday and it should be fixed now.

Also @phil and @valeryshpo


Re-downloaded 1.5.5 - previous crashes are no longer happening for me (click on advanced tab and preset selection)
