PODFarm 2.5 Crashing on Midi Patch Change...
by brotherjoseph on 2011-06-22 10:33:18.4800

Okay so we ( have a computer in our live rack running everything through Sonar X1, and have 7 instances of PODFarm running there in (4 Vocals, bass, 2 guitars). It works great, near zero latency (it's a powerfull computer). But with the update of 2.5 PODFarm crashes on midi triggered patch changes. Is there anything I can do on my end to fix this? I haven't tried the 64bit version, is it more stable?

Hey brotherjoseph,

The crashes you might have been related to some other issues we were experiencing with the POD Farm 2.50 update. POD Farm 2.50 supports 64 bit native operating systems and applications, although there are not separate versions of the application available, it will run in whatever bit mode it detects.

I would recommend giving the updated version a try. We have recently released updates to the following applications:

Line 6 Monkey - 1.41

Line 6 License Manager - 1.01

POD Farm - 2.51

Please use the instructions at the page below to completely remove all instances of POD Farm:

Please update Line 6 Monkey, which will include the update to License Manager. Then use Monkey to download and install the new driver update. Upon completion, download and install POD Farm 2.51. Then use the newly updated License Manager software to de-authorize and re-authorize all of your computers and devices.

Please let us know if you are still having problems.

Did you completely uninstall Pod Farm 2.5 before installing 2.5.1 using the

add/remove programs option in the Windows Control Panel?

Also, have you ran Windows update recently?

Hello all,

I just installed POD Farm 2.5 on my Mac (fresh install, never installed POD Farm ever before), and I have the exact same problem in REAPER. I have my POD HD500 connected to my Mac via MIDI, and can confirm that the MIDI inputs are working correctly, and have been wired in correctly.  However, the same problem described above is happening to me too — specifically, POD Farm responds to the first MIDI program change, but all subsequent program change messages via MIDI are ignored.

Has no resolution for this been found in over two years?

Looks like there are other people with the same issue too:">">
