'D'Animation' asked on the Digidesign User Conference if anyone else was having problems with automating SpeakerPhone, he wrote... Just a quick check to see if anyone else is having issues with Speakerphone 2 losing its automation presets/snapshots? I have about 6 different effects loaded into the first 6 preset slots so I just automate the preset index to switch between fx but every so often it loses all the preset settings within the plugin (the actual 'automation preset index' automation lane in protools keeps its data within the track though) and resets to the default 'bakelite phone' setting on all presets? Plugin is on a aux on its own being fed via prefader sends from VO tracks Pt's HD 8.01cs1, HD2 system, Mac OS 10.5.8, Mac Pro, 8 core Harpertown, D-command, Speakerphone 2 v. 2.0.3. 'minister' replied... Oh yeah. Got bit by that when I did some nice automation for some source music moving within a scene. Opened the file the next day to review with client and it was all ferkakta. All subsequent scenes were all a shambles as well. Ended up taking the time in the review session to reset and print the filters. Now, I always do it. 'PT Lover' chipped in with... I don't use Speakerphone myself, but have you guys read this? 'D'Animation' came back to say... Have to say I generally don't have everything write enabled and none of the presets use the sample bay so not sure if its just something funny going on - it is random and infrequent is the only blessing. I wish printing was an option (at the moment) but still lots of ADR and PU's coming in so I'd only end up redoing work. Its so obvious but I will admit to not thinking of it - Once everything is in printing is the safest bet alright ! 'PT Lover' later asked... Did you get this sorted out? Have you discussed it with Audioease? I'm considering this plug-in but I'm tired of workarounds. 'D'Animation' replied saying... No solid answer yet as its totally random and not repeatable to test but it is a great plug for 95% of the time. The current series I'm working on has lots of radio/speaker situations for vo and at times its replaced up to 4 plugins in a chain to do the same fx, kinda wish it was TDM though as, the way i use it, it lives on an aux! Luckily I've never lost any settings as i've managed to import the correct plugin data from a back-up session 'PT Lover' replied... Ok. Thanks. It sure does look and sound like a sweet plug-in. 'Pirate Post' added to confirm... Love the Plug-in but the automation just doesn't work. I always print it. 'PT Lover' asked... Are you using 2.0.3? 'Pirate Post' replied... Just checked, I'm on 2.0.2. I'll load up 2.0.3 and report my findings. PT Lover replied... Thank you. Pirate Post then confirmed.... That would be a big NO on the automation working correctly in version 2.0.3 PT Lover acknowledged... I see. Thanks for checking. So it seems as if Audio Ease have a little work to do on this one. As of today it still isn't fixed.

A note on the Speakerphone forum says...Today we have released the first Speakerphone 2 update. This one fixes a few things regarding loading & importing settings/songs/projects that were made with Speakerphone 1.You can download and install this update from here.Speakerphone 2.0.1 update release notes - fixes:Importing SP1 settings in Nuendo & Cubase works correctly nowFixed bug in preset browser: a single click opens the user section.Importing Speaker & Room IR Automation data works correctly now (a speaker selection bug in Speakerphone 2.0.0 prevented some Speakerphone 1 sessions to come up with the wrong speaker selected. The bug is fixed, but the consequence is that sessions made with speakerphone 2 may load with the incorrect speaker selected, so please double check which speaker is selected in the speaker module.)
Audio Ease sent me an email today telling me about the new version of Speakerphone, Speakerphone 2. Get along to their site and take a look at the video. The email says.. The Speakerphone 2 upgrade adds a tremendous amount of amps, speakers, ambiences, microphones, new modules and sonic tricks unheard anywhere before.If you want to see and hear for yourself what's new (or if you just want to hear Arjen lock a guy in the trunk of a Volvo parked on a moonlit business park) do check out the "what's new" movie: There are new additions and features all over Speakerphone and the video just blew me away. The best bit for post work has to be the 'Cover" feature which enables the user to cover over a sound source, like a blanket or a car boot as shown in the demo. The upgrade costs $149 or €119
