It would be really great to skip over loading plugins that can’t be authorized. For example, I left my dongles elsewhere, and I’m unable to load Gig Performer because my elicensor can’t be found for one of the plugins. When I say “close”, Gig Performer crashes. That may be a problem with the actual plugin, not Gig Performer per se, I can’t know. I’ve had it with the dongles anyways, too risky for a gigging musician. I’m going to resample from plugins requiring a dongle, and utilize them in a sampler that has no dongle requirement.
I simply refuse to tour with any plugin that requires a dongle. Imagine leaving it behind at one show when rushing to tear down. Or there’s another band opening for you and someone knocks into it.
In fact, I have done exactly what you did, i.e. sample stuff that I really want.
Great idea! I’ll try it. At least it can get me through the next few days while I try to remove the offending plugins.
I tried disabling the plugin. GP just crashes trying to load that rack space.
What version of Gig Performer are you running?
