I’ve just updated to Dorico 5 and it crashes as soon as the project activates the audio. If I set the preferences to not activate the project then I can move around the various screens and enter notes. Activating the Playback power switch either crashes the app immediately or nothing happens if I hit play. The cursor stays where it was and playback doesn’t initiate. Usually crashes soon after.
We’ve seen this crash in the audio engine from a few other users since Dorico 5 was released on Wednesday. I’ll pass your log on to @Ulf as well. I’m pretty sure you’re experiencing the same problem described in this thread:
Right, I had a quick look and it is that very same crash. Unfortunately we have no fix for it, yet. Of course we will work on it, but can’t say when we will have a fix for it. This issue has high priority for us.
We also don’t know yet why it happens only on some machine and what the condition is. @andydan , I hope you still have a Dorico 4 installation with which you can continue working.
Apologies and thank you for your patience.
Hi @Ulf , I’m not sure if Version 188.8.131.529 included a fix for my issue, but I can confirm that the problems persist as before. I tried it with and without rosetta, and with the mac audio with my motu sound card turned off, and it made no difference.
Hi @andydan , yes, that’s right, 184.108.40.2069 does not have a fix for it. But I’m glad to tell you, that we do have a fix in the meantime. As quick as possible we will release another hotfix version. Just a little bit more patience, please.
I’d too appreciate an update on when the fix might be available (or a workaround) if you’re able to. I’ve been getting up to speed in Dorico 4, but I’m keen to begin work on the next piece, for which I am looking forward to using Dorico 5’s microtonal midi pitch bend options!
