I've been trying for three months to get the SKNote Disto functional on my machine. Today was the last straw: After throwing out the old one, which repeatedly generated warning screens that "plugin is damaged" and "download and install again" (or words to that effect), I downloaded a squeaky-clean version and installed it again for the fourth time. This time, Logic won't even open —it crashes in mid-boot! I love this plugin and used it on several projects within a short time before it started acting up. It's perfect for my purposes on many fronts. But I can't abide the frustration anymore — I'm tearing out what's left of my hair! I even went through a 30-odd page Gearslutz page trying to get to the bottom of it before this last try, but no dice. So I'm ready to toss that $49 to the wind and find something comparable that (1) works and (2) is dependable. I've started working on a record for another guy and can't afford fits and starts. ... Anybody been down this alley before? I'd love to hear from some of you folks — there are plenty of opinions on that interweb thing but I trust my homeboys around here.
