Scuffham S-Gear v2.9 now available

Recommended Posts

https://www.scuffhamamps.com/v29-upgrade-info

for anyone diving straight in, is the vst2 path configurable?

Quote

S-Gear still provides a VST2 plug-in for Windows. To use this format you must add the S-Gear VST folder to the list of folders scanned by your DAW.
C:\Program Files\Scuffham Amps\S-Gear_VST\

Is the only thing new that it's Machine Locked, which removes the iLok requirement?

I don't see any change log, etc...

My amp sim of choice for years, but right now I’m not sure I need this update, even at $29. In my mind, it is in need of a major overhaul to catch up with more recent contenders (Nembrini for example). 
 

Not excited by this.

Wow so they didn't even improve the amps at all? I don't own this suite so I don't know that they need Improvement per se, but the high end amp sim competition is hot right now. I remember Shane from Kazrog saying his new amps are taking a bit longer than expected (he initially expected a 2019 release) because the competition for high end amp sims has gotten so hot and his new amps are still not out yet. 

@Marshall, I don't recall if you ever said or not, but between Nembrini and a comparable S Gear amp which did you think was better?

I bought the Nembrini MRH810 because it was waaay better at THAT sound than anything in that category that I have dialled up on S Gear. Different league, and I’m glad to own it. I know you’re no fan of suites, but I still use S Gear a lot...for most other sounds.

I installed the new version tonight.

Unfortunately, the standalone was not working correctly.  There seems to be a bug in selecting the correct interface.  If this happens to you, you will need to find the registry where the name of the interface is stored, and enter the correct interface.

I also had a problem getting the VST3 to work in CW but it works OK in SOP4.

Does it really matter, adding the path in Plug-In Manager is no big deal.
Not a "challenge" here, I haven't installed yet and wonder why you are concerned.

Program files has stricter security, which can cause issues, plus, why the hell shouldn't I be able to install it to my vst folder?

Not to mention how much of a pain it would be if every developer decided to put their stuff into wherever they wanted, especially for people who had multiple hosts.

Again not a "challenge"; but doesn't this make the case that all VST2 dll's should be in Program Files\Steinberg\VstPlugins ?

S-Gear v2.9 is now available and as an existing S-Gear license holder, you are entitled to a special upgrade price of USD $29.


The S-Gear v2.9 installers can be downloaded here:

W T F? $29 upgrade? When I bought S-Gear I was told I would get free lifetime updates.

Maybe you missed that Win now has VST3 whereas it was only on Mac.

I upgraded because as Steve Buscemi said in Fargo "I want to be in compliance"

And maybe this is the reason I haven't installed the upgrade yet!
And that I don't care where the VST2 dll is placed.

S-Gear VST3 failure

Tom

There have been more than a few VST3's that haven't played "nice" with CbB.
