I installed Performer 4.0.42 on macOS 10.15.4 yesterday and have been fighting crashes ever since, but I have determined a specific cause.
If I have any large file-size .vst3 in my folder when I try to open Performer, it immediately crashes. If I remove these .vst3 files from my folder, it opens no problem (but I obviously can’t use my plugins in this case).
The 3 offending .vst3 files are between 50-80MB, and created by Neural DSP and STL Tones. Performer has no trouble handling my other vst3 files in the 4-9MB range. I do have have vst2 files for these plugins, but Performer doesn’t see them in the folder (but doesn’t crash when they’re present like it does if the vst3 files are there).
How can I get Performer to open and use these files? Thanks so much for your help!
