  • VEP Pro 5 + Pro Tools WIN on one machine not working

    I just upgraded to Pro Tools 12 (Windows 7), so I lost direct access to my RTAS plugins, in particular Wallander Instruments. On Wqallander's recommendation to use VEP, I've installed the 30-day demo, launched PT, opened a VEP instance in an aux track and added WIVI. However, the VEP Pro Server shows no MIDI connections available. There is no Server panel in VEP | Options | Preferences, and within Pro Tools there's no way to connect to it.

    The manual states: "If you want to use Vienna Ensemble PRO on your Master Computer, you need to start the Vienna Ensemble PRO Server (32 bit or/and 64 bit) on the Master Computer. Then connect Vienna Ensemble PRO to the Vienna Ensemble PRO instance that is displayed as “localhost” in the Server " However, I can't launch VEP Server outside of Pro Tools.  I get an error that "the requested network port is not available."

    When I click on the VEP instance in the Aux track insert, the Status is "Not Assigned."

    Certainly I'm doing (or not doing) something simple and pobvious, but I'm stumped.

  • Umm... A reinstall of some Avid drivers and a lot of fiddling with the VEP app has made everything work.  Wallander is receiving MIDI and playing audio back into PT12.  Awesome! I'll be ordering it soon.
