New computer - plan to install podfarm 2.51 Any use to reinstall podfarm 1.12?
by fp65 on 2012-01-04 16:32:38

I have podfarm 1.12 and podfarm 2.02 installed on my old computer.  The licenses are currently linked to my UX2 interface (i have an unused GX as well). 

I had a near nightmare experience attempting the 2.51 "upgrade" in mid 2011.  It didn't go well and I stuck with 2.02.

For my new windows 7 computer, I am thinking of just installing podfarm 2.51 (and praying it works!). I assume that the only reason to reinstall 1.12 would be for some old DAW projects where 1.12 is instantiated on a few tracks.  I presume i can reload the PF1.12 presets into 2.51. 

Am I missing any advantage to having both versions on a single system? I don't think so but thought i would ask before proceeding directly to podfarm 2.51.

Thanks,

fp65

That is pretty much correct.

You can load PF1 files with PF2 (but the reverse is not true).

If you have no need for the PF1 plug-in for old projects, one reason I can think of that you would want PF1 installed is if you had an X3 as the tone files are compatible with each other.

No prob.

I'm sure you already know this, but just for the record, if you only have PF2 installed and you open a project with PF1 plugs, PF2 will not upload the PF1 settings automatically.
