Can I change the name of the DLL file?

Postby rods » Fri Jan 13, 2012 3:32 am

Hi, I use Nebula in Samplitude Pro X Suite.
If we have 2 versions of the same plugin (32bit and 64bit) in the vst folder, Samplitude choses the correct one to open (32bit or 64bit). If I change the name of Nebula 64bit from "Nebula3CoreII64.dll" to "Nebula3 Reverb.dll" do I get any problems? This way I could easily open projects that I started in 32bit and now work in 64 bit without having to change every Nebula instance to 64bit.

I use to install my 64bit plug-ins in C:\Program Files\Audio Plugs and 32bit plug-ins in C:\Program Files (x86)\Audio Plugs. I use REAPER, both 64bit and 32bit versions. When I started using REAPER 64bit version about 2 years ago I installed Nebula3 Pro 64bit and changed Nebula3CoreII64 Reverb.dll and Nebula3CoreII64 Reverb.xml files names to Nebula3 Reverb.dll and Nebula3 Reverb.xml, respectively. I haven't had a single problem with this. REAPER 64bit VST paths are C:\Program Files\Audio Plugs AND C:\Program Files (x86)\Audio Plugs (because I take advantage of its bridge for 32bit plug-ins in its 64bit version). REAPER 32bit VST paths is just C:\Program Files (x86)\Audio Plugs.

Seems that Samplitude scan VST plug-ins by the name not by the VST ID. Anyway I use x86 and x64 names in all plug-ins and I add both folder in Samplitude. I never tried your settings (sames names), but seems to works. I hope Magix developt a better features for handle plugin-ins in SPX.
