Can I run TX16Wx stand-alone?
No. TX16Wx is only available as a plug-in. On windows you can use the excellent SAVIHost application to achieve much the same thing though.
I am getting volume/CPU spikes when playing sounds!
Make sure you have not enabled a too high sample interpolation mode, such as SINC128, for all sounds. These can use a lot of CPU and are best used only in offline renders.
I am trying to sample into TX16Wx but I don't get any sound!
Sampling in TX16Wx requires the host to route audio input to the plug-ins inputs. Not all hosts support this (though all plug-in formats do).
Does TX16Wx work with ?
Maybe. Not all hosts can be fully tested, and not all the time. In general TX16Wx works fine in all VST and AU hosts, though some features, such as sampling might not be possible due to routing constrictions. In other cases, hosts might exhibit graphics issues or even lock-ups. Information and solutions to such problems can often be found in the support forum.
I am running an older version of OSX. Can you provide a TX16Wx that works there?
No. Apples frameworks and libraries are only so much backwards compatible, and since TX16Wx uses fairly modern language and OS features, the minimum OSX version supported is 10.9.
