Similar problem with Nectar 3 demo on Cubase 9.5, Sierra 10.12.6 (wrong forum I know but this thread came up in a search). Projects crash on opening, Nectar 3 in crash reports. Open fine once I deleted Nectar 3. Shame as I was going to buy it. Didn’t try keeping just the VST3 version – projects not opening is too scary.
Martin, I respect what you deal with here, however, this is a well used plugin by a very well known vendor, and I frankly have no idea which version I end up using. Logic Pro X works perfectly with it, as does Studio One, and LUNA. Only stand out is Cubase, and it only started happening with 10.4.x onward I think from memory. I have sent the report to apple each time it crashes. I only just saw it was Nectar causing it, so reporting from 10.5.20 is at least clear about it now, which is nice .
Not slagging it, just seriously curious why the sudden issues for me at least. Only thing I do not run current versions of, for reasons smart people know, is latest OSX, Mojave will be in residence for some time to come .
Logic is definitely using AU, not VST plug-ins. At Studio One, you can use both on Mac as far as I know. Luna, I don’t know, but on Mac I would expect AU again.
You said, the problem started work 10.4.x. Sorry, 10.4 of what? Mac OS? iZotope? There is no Cubase 10.4 version.
I just try to help. It’s valuable information to know that iZotope crashes with VST only (but not AU). Same as to know the crashes started with a specific version (system/plug-in/Cubase?). More we know, easier to ask (the right company) for the fix (and not a hack or workaround).
Hi. I had troubles with nectar 3 too, and all the other new plugin izotope like neutron, ozone ( I downloaded all of them as trials). After a long research, I think I have solved the situation changing the graphic card, from nvidia to intel. I hope this help. best.
