Yesterday, 25th August, we launched our new TAIPEI Studio Tape Recorder plugin, brimming with excitement to see the public reaction to what we feel is our best feat of plugin engineering yet. Murphy crept up on us and kicked us solidly in the balls.
The early adopters quickly reported that their DAW was crashing upon loading TAIPEI.
TAIPEI Studio Tape Recorder was in beta testing for weeks prior to launch, with all manner of issues fixed by our team, though there was one little oversight to do with N4 commercial that caused this failure to load. Our beta testers are all using a beta-version of N4, with all the latest updates. Unfortunately the public version of N4 is still dated 20th October 2020 (!) and doesn’t contain the necessary upgrades to sucessfully host TAIPEI. At least, not until they releast the update.
N4 Player (the free version) works fine as it was updated in August ’21.
We’ve fixed the incompatibilities with N4 commercial from within TAIPEI and released the 2.0 update today, 26 August. Once N4 commercial is updated we will then reintroduce the functions to TAIPEI.
If you bought TAIPEI on 25 August
You simply need to update TAIPEI to the latest version using the Aquarius application.
If you’re buying TAIPEI on or after 26 August 2021
You’re good to go! You don’t need to do anything special, the version you purchase will be the latest version.
