Software Description

LiveProfessor is designed to be a effect rack of VST plugins - specifically with live sound in mind. The concept is very simple: using an ASIO audio card you can route inputs and outputs through your VST plug-ins. The program supports snapshots, MIDI and both VST effects and VST instruments.

LiveProfessor is still at the beta stage so it’s not at all consider to be finished.


  • As many VST plug-ins as your computer can handle. Both VST effects and VST instruments are supported.
  • Easy routing: The matrix view makes it easy to see what is patched where.
  • Snapshot automation of each plug-in: Recalls all parameters of a plug-in.
  • MIDI input: To control instruments or to allow hands-on control of plug-ins.
  • Fast audio engine to ensure low latency. Using a standard ASIO-card you can have as many inputs and outputs you like.

New in v1.2.0 beta

  • Framework changes
  • Stability improvements
  • Fix for some issues regarding high memory usage in 64 bit (4GB+).

New in v1.1.1

  • Fix for controller maps not being recalled correctly in global snapshots, leading to all sorts of errors.
  • General bug fixes and other fixes for memory issues.

New in v1.1.0

  • Fix for several cosmetic bugs.
  • 64bit Compatible
  • MIDI indicator on plugins
  • Stop running wait times
  • Fix for various typos
  • It now saves the plugin list after each plugin so that if a plugin should crash during scan you don't have to start all over.
  • Fix for crash on startup if the ASIO driver had problems
  • Fix for panel snapping bug
  • Fix for check boxes in the view menu showing the wrong state.
  • Fix for bug when dragging items to the cue lists after deleting cue actions.

New in v1.1.0b4

  • Adds 64Bit support
  • Bugfix for no-sound issue

New in v2.0.2 Beta

  • Fixed a bug that would not restore the audio patch when loading a project

New in v2.0.0 Beta

  • The audio engine has changed. There was a need for more flexible routing and better multi core support. Each plugin input can now mix any number of sources, from sound card inputs or other plugin outputs. Routing is done like before but you can now use the CTRL-key to add more then one input to a plugin. In the same way all plugin outputs can be split to multiple destinations.
  • Multi core processors are now supported so that each signal chain can run on its own core. So if you have 4 plug-ins and 4 cores each plug-in gets its own core. But if all the plugins are connected to each other, they run on the same core, as they have to wait for each other any way. You don’t have to think about this, it’s just to give you a hint that routing affects the efficiency of the program.
  • MIDI controllers - The next big change is the way MIDI controllers are handled. Users reported that they where limited by the early system of a global map with 8 layers. The system has now been split up. You now add a new Controller, you add as many knobs, buttons, sliders as you want to match your physical device, and then assign MIDI messages to these (instead of directly to the plugin-parameters)
  • Each plug-in instance can now have as many controller maps as you want, and you can switch between them like you do with snapshots. There has also been added a bunch of filter, scale and logic options so you can tweak the controllers just the way you like

Changes in v1.3.1:

  • Feature: LiveMode cue list. In this mode cues are displayed with larger fonts and can't be edited (They can be moved).
  • Feature: Cue list full screen button. This button maximizes a cue list to occupy the entire screen.
  • Fix: Meters looks "stuck" on large peaks.
  • Fix: Routing menu don't show what connection is currently used.
  • Fix: Altiverb 6 did not output any sound.
  • Fix: When opening a project with missing MIDI devices and then saving the MIDI patch for these devices was lost.
  • Feature: Possible to manually replace missing MIDI devices.
  • Fix: Bug in auto scroll in cue list.
  • Fix: Dragging a snapshot action tool to an existing cue created a new snapshot.
  • Fix: Adding a new snapshot and clicking cancel created the snapshot anyway.
  • Fix: Potential crash when deleting snapshots.
  • Fix: When editing time values, empty values would great an error message.
  • Fix: In the Routing panel of each plugin number of connections for output chains could be displayed wrong.

Complete change log for Beta 1.3

  • Feature: Default audio patch on adding new plugins. (Options > Audio setup)
  • Fix: Disconnecting or moving USB Midi devices confused the professor. MIDI devices are now identified by their actual device name. You will be warned if a device is missing with an option to replace the device with another.
  • Feature: Auto learn. When moving a knob in a plugin and the same plugin is selected in the controller map the correct parameter will automatically go in “learn mode” making assignment of MIDI controllers much faster.
  • Note: This feature can be turned off in the controller map under Setup.
  • Note: Not all plugins supports this
  • Fix: When opening a saved project multiple cue lists showed up as armed
  • Fix: Updated the PDF manual.
  • Feature: Possible to set both minimum and maximum values in MIDI controller map. Also possible to choose a “Reverse mode” (See manual)

  • Feature: When using the Global Cue Tool, giving the new cue the same name as an existing cue gives you the option to replace existing snapshots.
  • Feature: Added Delete in the snapshot list’s right click menu.
