Issue with latest synfire vst plugin

Hi,

Ive just tried to open the last  ableton live set I was working on in conjunction with synfire and it's refusing to load in ableton. Live crashes everytime I try load the set(song) and on restarting Live it is claiming cognitone drone is the culprit.

This is the first time Ive tried to load this set since upgrading to the latest version of Synfire.

Havent had time to diagnose the problem any further and cant remember if the set was saved with all drones set to midi drones or if they hosted vsts, but thought Id highlight it as a possible problem.

Thanks for reporting.

The Audio Engine has not changed since 1.7.4. It is still at version 1.10.2. Could it be you have moved installed plug-ins?

Hi Andre,

sorry for the confusion, I was using the drones although they may have been midi drones. There is a possibility I did have a drone containing a vst but not sure. I tend not to use the engine except for a shared rack with just the GM synth which is used soley for clip previews, etc.

If its any help, the ableton project crashes on loading even if synfire isnt loaded. Will try moving/renaming the cognitone vst drone so ableton cant find it. I should then be able to work out if there was any non-midi drones.

Since I created that project I have only updated apple os patches and synfire. It's possible the file could have corrupted and it may be a problem with ableton that is exposed by the cognitone drone.

Will post more if I can get any further details for you.

Done a bit more digging around and the drone contained a copy of the access virus ti control vst.

Since I upgraded synfire (and some apple os updates) I dont seem to be able to use the combination of:

Ableton Live -> Cognitone Drone -> access virus TI plugin (vst). It crashes live everytime.

I can load the access virus ti plugin in the synfire engine and that works ok.

I've never been able to migrate the virus plugin from engine to ableton live as it can only be loaded once, so its not this as I know not to bother trying.

In fact if i start ableton live. Load the cognitone vst on a track, load the virus plugin in teh vst, live crashes.

Not sure where the problem lies but at the moment I cant use synfire with my virus.

Thanks for the information.

The Drone is part of the Audio Engine package, so that hasn't changed since 1.7.4.

Are you sure it didn't crash with 1.7.4 ?

Have you tested the AU version of the Virus?

HI Andre,

tried both versions, although Im normally restricted to the vst drone as i need midi drones for the ableton drum racks and native instruments, so dont want to mix vst/au in the same project. If the synfire drones havent changed for a while something else must have upgraded that Ive forgotton about.

Will check for virus and live updates as other vsts are playing friendly with synfire.
