MIDIGUITAR2 Issue with Expression Pedal Widget

Hi to All

After assign an expression pedal to control Velocity Gain at MidiGuitar2, GigPerformer crashes and freezes…it had to force quit and restart…but the issue still remains…

The only workaround I found was to use MIDIGITAR2 stand alone and use MidiIN Block inside Gigperformer to control a synth instrument

Anyone has faced something similar?

Tks in advance,

Hi there - seems that this is an issue with the VST version of this plugin. It locks up if it receives this host automation on a certain thread.

The AU version seems to work better though so please try to replace your plugin with the AU version and see if that helps. It would help the developers of the plugin if you reported this issue to them as well.

As a side note … I actually prefer running the MIDI Guitar 2 as a separate application and then using a MIDI In block in GP. This allows me to globally adjust some settings of MIDI Guitar 2 and offload some of its processing outside GP which helps with the overall performance.


One of these days, I will end up replacing my UR22 by a multiclient asio device. :grimacing:

Other workaround is to use a MidiIN Block straight to MG2…that works well too…
