Fidelia on Lion OSX

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 

Is anyone using Fidelia on Lion OSX successfully?

 

Mine skips and halts quite regularly...not a pleasant experience.

 

I see Amarra is also not fully functional...any other players recommended on Lion?

post #2 of 29

Haven't thought it might be Lion bugging, as I tried the evaluation and it worked allright, but at times it skips or stutters completely.

Very annoying when listening to music :/.

 

As for Amarra, can't help you there. I've read that some people have troubles installing it on Lion, might be that it's quite buggy for it atm?

 

Maybe try the other OSX players (I didn't yet but just quoting from the thread): Pure Music, Decibel, ...

Fidelity's compatibility with Lion is definitely relevant question for me.

post #4 of 29

How is Amarra not fully functional? I'm curious.  I just tried playing a file through it and worked no problem

post #5 of 29

I just have the demo version and it STILL doesn't find VST plugins.

 

Lion's been out since JULY...and the developer versions were out for what, six months?  Why on earth would it take that long?

I am having the same problem and they asked me to send a Flac file which I bought from hdtracks and Fidelia is saying its my files...I doubt that HDtrack would sell faulty tracks...

Safari in Lion is a RAM black hole. The sub file that runs extensions can grab astronomical amounts of RAM very quickly. Clear out your extensions and check which sites are worst. I just upgraded to a new iMac with SSD and 16GB RAM, so I'm not having quite the issues I used to.

The VST plugins for Fidelia are broken on Lion in the trial version. Upgrading to the paid version fixed that, but only if you disable the 'plugin finder on opening' option in the preferences. I'd already wrapped the VST in an AU wrapper to get it to work.

Hog mode is mainly for shutting down mail 'bings' and system alerts. It does NOT extend Fidelia plug ins to your whole system, much to my chagrin.

I paid for it. I think I need to do what you mentioned about disabling the plugin finder.  
How do I do that?  I tried to look for it but I'm in the middle of a rush.  

What do you mean by extensions?

Disable 'plugin check on start' in the Fidelia preferences, then restart. Extensions are add-ons (not plugins, but similar) that allow you to add functions to Safari (like blocking Flash).

of course it doesnt, vst in general hasnt been supported on mac for ages

 

agreed on safari, though its nothing new, its the least efficient memory manager i know of, as you say takes memory and wont give it back. especially if you dont use tabs, but rather open pages in new windows

I just triad the demo of Fidelia on my MacBook Pro with Lion and report no problems at all. No stuttering problems I would test VST's but since I don't know of any I have none to test. Since its not happening with my machine maybe its not lion, maybe its something else you have installed since then.

I went to the fedelia preference and I didn't see anything like that.  I see four choices "General, format, iTunes and output"  Am I in the wrong area?

like i said,  vsts wont work, they have not been supported for years, like before intel chips even, let alone on mac intel/lion. the stuttering may of course be buffer underun

OSX supports VST. I run some VST plugins and instruments in Live 8. The hitch is that there are Windows VSTs and Mac VSTs.

As for the plugin scan, keep looking - it's a box you uncheck. There are only four tabs in preferences - it's either General or Advanced, I think.

I still don't see anything that you've mentioned.  I don't see an advanced option either and I've gone through each.  

 

I just found on the effects that theres a VST but when I highlight it it says no plug-in found.... 

 

I bought my files from HDtracks.  Some of them make a popping sound.  When I play my applelossless files there is no skipping or popping..... this is frustrating...mad.gif

 

I just tried to buy a AIFF file from HDtracks and theres no skipping....
