imprint mold==instacrash when used as extension in Cubase

Hello,

Is anyone else having this problem? I have a Win 10 pro system (with 128gb ram, that’s not an issue) but when I attempt to load a few files via ara 2/extensions into spectralayers in Cubase 10 pro, and run imprint>mold, unfortunately, it crashes a lot of the time. Cubase doesn’t quit, but I get an error telling me to restart, and the selection in SLP6 becomes unresponsive.
As far as I can tell, the rest of SLP6 works fine until I run mold. Also, it usually works fine for a few minutes, then after I’m 10-15 minutes into a session, it starts crashing.

I’ve sent off a report and crash .dmp to the tech support email for Canada, but I am curious to know if anyone else might have an idea as to what is going on. I hope there’s something simple I am overlooking as the imprint feature is what i use the most probably!

Hi, can you send me the crash report as well? As a private message here, or by email at contact [at] divideframe.com. It’s the most direct way for me to analyze it - thanks!

Hi Robin, thanks for the quick response and I’ve sent the email. I am now finding that my session crashes whenever I open SLP6 at all inside Cubase. No crash report, just instantly closes everything and returns to the desktop. Reboot, opening session–same problem.
The last thing I did was dock SLP6 in the bottom screen of Cubase, not sure if that would be an issue.

Thanks Shane, got the crash reports.
So you’re not getting any new crash dump in Documents/Steinberg/crashdumps?
If not, maybe hopefully you still have SpectraLayers’ own log files located in %localappdata%\Steinberg\SpectraLayers Pro\logs that you can send to me.

I just had another crash while trying to use the moulding function with the standalone version of SL6, here is the log:

Yep, in every second attempt to mould something the app crashes, here is another log.

Thanks, adding it to the bug details. I could not repro the bug so far unfortunately. Can you share a screenshot of a SL project (or even a .SLP project itself if size is manageable) that make it crash with molding?

Here is a screencast of a moulding crash:

https://patchpool.s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/videos/SL6+Crash.mp4

After many attempts, finally reproed the crash (by opening a project with 2 layers, applying the imprinting process once, closing the project, reopening it, and applying again -> crash). Root cause found and fixed in the next patch.

Great news! Audio sculpting bliss awaits.
