Curious about Audulus and thinking about checking it out.
Has anyone run Aalto in Audulus?

Aalto does not seem to respond to host sync in Rax v3.
Seems like a bug...can anyone confirm?
Running OSX v10.6.8 and Aalto v1.2.1 (tried both AU and VST)

Just wondering if anyone is having problems with Aaltoverb.
I'm using it in Rax 3, and it's not working.
It runs, but the sound is not affected at all. Also, the little oscilloscope shows nothing.

I tried it in Garageband as well, and it DOES work, so I don't know what the problem is.

First off, excellent synth, Randy.
I don't know if this has been brought up before, but I was wondering if there could be an option to only run the oscillator when the synth receives MIDI notes.
I like to have multiple AU plugins open either on different MIDI channels or keyboard splits, and with this setup it's unfortunate that Aalto uses CPU even if I'm not playing it at the moment.
I know CPU usage is being worked on, but I think it would be nice not to have to account for Aalto's usage if I switch to another instrument (the context is in a live situation).
Thank you thank you.


Okay, at first I thought that's what you were talking about, but then I thought that would be too easy and why didn't I think of that.

I'm using a plugin host called Rax (not a DAW) and at first it seemed like there was no option to do this. On second glance though, it looks like there is indeed an option but it isn't working correctly. I'm going to drop an email to the Rax folks and see if they can take a look at it.

Thanks for the help.

Also, thanks for looking into it, Randy.

Quick Update:

Apparently the Rax instrument bypass is not working correctly--a bug that they are working on. I booted up Garageband quick and tried the instrument bypass, and you were right rsdio, it essentially turns off the instrument.

So this should work for my purposes once it's fixed in Rax.


All I know is that the other AU instruments I use do not have this problem. It's possible that it's just an optimization issue, but it seems like it also has something to do with how Aalto's oscillators work. I completely understand wanting to make the synth sound as analog as possible.

"Bypass" is the name of an effect? Do you have a link? I have found no other way to have the instrument loaded but bypass it's use of CPU.
