  • VE3 vs FXTeleport

    I'm in the middle of setting up three machines and am debating whether to install FXTeleport or buy VE3.

    I used to use Gigateleport, which was great, but, reading the support forum, FXTeleport seems to be a bit dead in the water, and there are a number of problems with VST3 which don't seem to have been resolved. That might give me some problems, since I run CUbase4. On the other hand I have a lot of large VST romplers, besides Vienna ones, which would all have to live on my sequencer machine if I used VE.

    Can anyone tell me how well VE3 copes with Cubase4, and how its latency compares to that of FXTeleport? Also, are there any known conflict issues - for instance will it hiccup if I start running it at the same time as Kontakt, or the Garritan ARIA engine?


  • I can sort of help you. When I tried the demo, latency was better than FXT. However, I had a problem on day two, when I switched the PCs on. Some computers were fine, some weren't and as I had some work to do, I uninstalled VE3 and went back to FXT, which has worked well for over 4 years. I'm sure that the VE3 problems could have eventually been sorted out, but I just didn't have time to waste.

    However be aware that no Networked audio system will give you low latency. It is just is not possible with current Network hardware/OS combinations. However, if you can live with that, it is a good way to make things neat, and save some money. One other thing; you can use a workaround with VSL to avoid re-loading samples every time you load a new project, but with other sample players you will have to load everything over again. This may not be a problem with small projects, but when you start to get into "10 minutes to load" territory, it can be a PITA.

    Does that mean you're using FXT with Cubase4? I got the impression, on the FXMax forum, that most people had eventually given up on that, and reinstalled Cubase SX3.

    Hadn't thought about that. I suppose it would actually make sense to have all my other plugins on the main machine, where Cubase will save all their settings and loaded samples. Then my satellites can be purely for Vienna Instruments, and VE3 will save their settings. It'll be a bit of a pain to rebuild everything, but if VE3 has no terrible performance issues then, it sounds like the way to go.


  • Don't pay any attention to the FXT forum. If people are using FXT, and it works for them, there is no reason to go there. Most people only go there when they have a problem. I only go there occasionally because I was involved in some testing 4 years ago.

    Up until last week I was using FXT with Nuendo 3 and 4. Now I do everything on one machine, although FXT is still used in Studio 2.
