New User - GUI Missing on synth, only purple background visible

Surrealistic MG-1 Plus is a loving recreation of the Realistic MG-1, an oddball synthesizer sold by the 1980's consumer electronics giant Radio Shack.

New User - GUI Missing on synth, only purple background visible

Post by spacewevil » Sun Mar 21, 2021 11:05 am

Hi All,

Just seen a video on Youtube for this Synth and thought I would check it out as I have seen other recommendations on the Juno clone.

Anyway, long story short, when I load the application I am missing the main skin (see attached image). I installed on another drive (D:) and not C which was default. Cant think this should make a difference as the option to use another drive was available to me.

I have just downloaded 1.0.17. I have a registered user account working. I checked in the logs in AppData/Roaming .... but nothing is showing as an error or missing.

Any help would be much appreciated.

In the DCO-106 thread another user posted a picture with a similar purple + cherries background (just the background, no controls). The solution reported in that case was to use the standalone version first. So, if you also went straight to the plug-in version, maybe trying the standalone version might dislodge something that isn't working quite right. viewtopic.php?f=38&t=1502

Perfect thank you for your comments.
I will try this out later tonight hopefully and confirm this worked.


Regards,
JT

Quick update in case anyone else has this, unfortunately still the same.

I will uninstall and reinstall at some point see if it helps.
