Can't use saved Calf effects parameters

Post by jotape1960 » Tue Sep 19, 2017 7:06 pm


I use Ubuntu Studio 16.04 LTS with Audacity last available version.

Each time I use Calf Effects (which are the best effects I know) and I saved my own parameters for this..., then, when I close Audacity and I re-open it, wanting to use those parameters again, the Calf effects doesn't recognize it (and I have to set it, manually, again).

So... If I use a Calf effect (any of them) into an automatic "batch" process, Calf can't load those parameters and it uses just the creator default parameters.

Also... The VU meters inside any of the Calf effects, don't work in my system.


What's wrong here???

Have you tried using Audacity's "Manage" features?
