So for everyone who is still using Cubase 8.5 (like me), Steinberg released an update for this version today which fixes quite some issues.
First of all, create a backup of your server or VM in case that anything will go wrong during the update process or any applications will not work anymore after updating your MySQL Server.
After that create a copy of your existing MySQL config as a backup:
Now browse to http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/repo/apt/ and check which is the latest available MySQL version package. In our case mysql-apt-config_0.7.3-1_all.deb. Now log in to your server via SSH with root access. Download and install the tool:
dpkg -i mysql-apt-config_0.7.3-1_all.deb
During the installation you will be asked which version you want to install so you can decide to update to MySQL 5.6 or 5.7.
After the installation wizard is finished, perform the following commands
apt-get install mysql-server
If you are being asked to update your my.cnf, select yes. That’s it.
Digital Slate is offering their extreme dynamic processor VST plug-in for free. The only thing you will need to get it running is an iLok.
If you want to check out what The Monster can do for you, check this video from Steven Slate himself:
If you are having problems registering your Monster using your iLok, I had the same problem and contacted the customer support. It seems that they „DoS“ed the iLok service. 🙂
Thank you for contacting Slate customer support. After an overwhelming, massive demand for The Monster, we managed to crash the iLok License servers. If you’ve already redeemed your Virtual Mix Rack/Revival/Trimmer license then you do not need to redeem the license again. Just install your Virtual Mix Rack 188.8.131.52 plugin and you’ll be good to go.
For those of you unable to register your license, we sincerely apologize for the delay. The iLok team is currently working on repairing this issue as we speak.
Thank you for your patience.
Plugin Alliance is currently offering a new distortion VST plug-in from Unfiltered Audio for free until 15th of August. I already had a quick look at it and it sounded very nice so far. Get the plug-in for free here.
Here is a small video showing a hands-on on the plug-in:
Installing Seafile on a system that is maintained by Plesk can be a little bit tricky, especially if you are using Debian 7 with Apache 2.2. Therefore I wrote a small tutorial which will explain how to install seafile on a new created subdomain.
