Vsig + Orville: Nothing but problems

March 04, 2018 - 08:10 am

I am admittedly new to Vsig, but it seems like I'm running into very buggy behavior.

I'm using Vsig 2.4.9.0, Orville OS is 3.002, and I'm on Windows 10, connecting to my Orville via USB.

Here is an example of an issue:

(Screenshot 1) Create simple patch with a long delay + hfader on menu page to control delay length. Works, no problem.

 

(Screenshot 2) Add a reverb module so I can reverberate my delays. Again, no problem.

 

(Screenshot 3) Add another hfader to my menu so I can control reverb. Now it complains about a type issue for "longdelay". Why? I haven't changed anything related to the delay.

 

(Screenshot 4) Back out my reverb fader so I'm now back at the state from screenshot 2, which previously worked. Now it barfs up some cryptic error.

 

What am I doing wrong?!

I can only see one screen

I can only see one screen shot.

Please also give the FULL text of all error messages. They are there for a reason, not just to annoy you.

Wish I could edit my posts.

Wish I could edit my posts. Instead of "longdelay' obviously it's a regular delay, and the issue it complains about is adc1-in. Sorry for the mixup.

My first thought is that it

My first thought is that it is a communication problem.

Are you by any chance using the serial line from a cheezy laptop ? If so, try a lower baud rate or another computer.

I'll try and duplicate it tomorrow.

Not sure how you define "cheezy laptop". It's a USB to MIDI cable that works fine for everything else. I'll try a few other computer\connector combinations in the meantime though. Thanks!

I tried using a serial

I tried using a serial connection, but that just results in the Orville displaying "loading program..." for a bit, and then nothing else happening.

Nevermind - was able to tweak

Nevermind - was able to tweak my settings to get serial communication to work...and that seems to be the key! My patch now works!

Solution: for anyone trying this stuff in 2018 on a modern system, use serial instead of MIDI communication.

"Loading program" messages are usually sign of a wrong baud rate setting. Not sure why ...
