Here is a good definition.
We sell and provide customer support for the following formats:
VST for Win(32-bit)
VST for Win (64-bit)
VST for Mac Intel (32/64-bit)
AU for Mac Intel (32/64-bit)
AAX for Win (32-bit)
AAX for Mac Intel (32-bit)
Some host limit the number of automatable parameters but you can reorder them so that the most important to
you are shown. Please read the section about reordering parameters in the plug-in manual.
Also the file easy_vst_automation.cfg.txt is an example of basic configuration (and most likely the one you'll need). This file will work on VST, AU and AAX.
In the plug-in setup menu,
check the MIDI input device. It should be set to VST (or AU) MIDI in if you want to receive MIDI from the host.
You can choose any other MIDI device as long as it's not used by another application (or the host).
Our preset files are in fact bank presets files. Use the 1-8 buttons to activate a particular preset.
Using the Ohm Force sytem to save your presets will allow you to :
- save them by banks (so that you can then morph between related presets)
- use them on any other platform (be it AU, VST, DirectX, Mac, PC...)
Use the native AU versions.
You can buy those on the Plugorama website. In case you already own a Pack version of some plug-ins, or a bundle with multiple platform support, you can get those for free, also on the Plugorama website.
Let's suppose you want to send the NRPN command number "k". NRPN data are actually specific Control Change (CC) commands.
You have to send at least 3 of them to constitute one NRPN command, in this order :
No, we stopped offering them a while ago. Customer support is no more available for these versions.
Please download the latest version of the plug-in. If it still does not pass validation, please send the validation report here.
Please download the latest version of the plug-in. If it still crashes validation, please send the validation report and the crash log here. The crash log can be found in your ~/Library/Logs/Crash Reporter/ folder. The file to send is the file which name contains something about auval.
Please download the latest version of the plug-in. If it still crashes the host, please send the crash log here. The crash log can be found in your ~/Library/Logs/Crash Reporter/ folder. The file to send is the file which name contains the host name.
Open the Energy Saver options panel, and set the CPU to "Highest". Contact the mac support if the problems persist.
Please download the latest version of the plug-in. You will have to create an account on our site, and then register your OFE on our site here: register.

Please delete the folders "Ohm Force" and "GForce" in your ~/Library/ folder. Then open the standalone, and choose a playback buffer length compatible with your audio card.
This may happen when two Ohm Force plugins are following each others in on a track.
This is because Tracktion connects the two plug-ins via MIDI. When you save your project, the upstream plug-in sends MIDI controls to the downstream plug-in, changing it's setting! So, what can you do?
Disable the MIDI output of the plug-in by default. First select 'None' as MIDI out device in the setup menu, then save your configuration (settings -> save), and set this file to 'auto-load'.
It seems that Cubase does not always scan properly the VST plug-in
folder, and 'forget' some plug-ins.
Re-install the plug-in in a new folder (for example 'tempVSTPlugin'), and in Cubase register this directory as a VST plug-ins directory. This is done in the 'Device'-> 'Plug-in information' menu of Cubase. Then restart Cubase and check the plug-in is correctly listed. Otherwise, contact us.
Disable the plug-in MIDI output in the plug-in setup menu (select none instead of VST). This happens only with Quad Frohmage as far as we know.
Yes, this is
possible by sending a specific MIDI NRPN to the plug-in. It's also possible to change the MIDI mapping, and assign a
Control Change for this.
Refer to the documentation for more information.
Unfortunately there is no good way to achieve this. If your OhmBoyz setting is not multi-tap and the unique tap is not delayed, you can lower and mute the Predelay level.
Disable the plug-in MIDI output in the QF setup menu (select none instead of VST).
Check the playing mode of the filter. If it's set to 'MIDI poly', it will only output something if you send it MIDI notes. Set it to 'Classic' or 'MIDI mono' to hear something without playing.
Ohm Force plugins are the most used things in my studio.
I would be very happy to be associated with Ohm Force!
I started with Frohmage [...] and then gradually bought the rest. My favourites are OhmBoyz, Predatohm and now Symptohm, but I use them all...
In my last album I used ample doses of Ohmicide:Melohman, OhmBoyz, Hematohm, Predatohm and Symptohm:Melohman.
I really dig the new Ohmicide plugin in its some heavy duty bizniz.
I bought the Oddity [...] a few months ago and couldn't believe how great [it was]. [...] I checked out the Quad Frohmage [...] and well, the rest is history.
There's simply nothing out there that comes close to this little beauty [Minimonsta:Melohman].
Oh shit! These fellas are the shit!
It[Ohmicide]'s an absolutely crazy multiband distortion, compression, EQ and filter, which pretty much lets you do anything.
Thanks for making something easy and interesting to use.
I'm a fan of your twisted Ohm minds.
Life without many of their plugins is not worth thinking about. Always the first group of plugins I go to when looking for inspiration.
Since I've been using Ohm, my chest has got a lot more hairy and hot girls keep asking for a fondle, I'd recommend Ohm to anyone.
Creative minds just love the Ohm Force plugins... Especially the Quad Frohmage, full of sonic delights for today's head!
[About the Minimonsta:Melohman] That's the first I feel the "Big Scraping Bottom" impression of a Real Analog Synth sound delivered by a plugin. Amazing.
Ohm Force have always produced some of what I feel are the best plugs on the market. Their effects [...] cross boundaries and become almost instruments in their own right.
[Ohm Force plugins] are part of my arsenal. The synth plugins are superb. Fat and organic. The distortions and filters are some of the most intuitive and enjoyable I've yet come across.
If you don't buy these plugins, you will be making hamburgers for the rest of your life.
Ohm Force allows you to tap into uncharted soundscapes with their fresh perspective on music and technology. Their products are truly inspiring.
I'm really diggin Ohmicide - It's like listening to the noises I've been having in my head for years. [...] It'll be my default weapon of attack from now on.
I must say, I love this particular filter [Quad Frohmage] as it is manic but it can also be used to create subtle textures. (from 'The Art of Drum Layering')
I can't stop playing with these effects!!!!!!!!!!!!!! [...] Thank you for making a synthesizer that has me joyously bewildered!
I only wish we had known about your plugins earlier. [...] All those hours [spent making sounds less generic] have been reduced to a few seconds with these plugins. Great stuff!
Among the finest of [creative type plugins] is everything by Ohm Force. [They] know how to make plugs which are original, distinctive, fun to use, and give great results.
