Spectralayers V8 trial crashing

Installed the V8 trial. When in stand alone mode program will freeze after this work flow.

Load file
Adjust amplitude
Press Play
Press Stop
Press Play
Program Freezes
Use Task Manager to force Quit
Repeat x10
Throw computer out the window…

Maybe not that last part but it gets very close.

When used in Cubase via ARA it bogs down the session even when only applied to 1 track. Session is small, only 9 tracks.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Casey

Can you upload here the log files located in %APPDATA%\Steinberg\SpectraLayers 8.0\logs ? (you can also access them through Help > Support Info > Logs Folder)

Are you using ASIO or WASAPI ? If using ASIO, did you try WASAPI ?

I’ll Paste the log file here, it won’t allow me to attach a TEXT file. I do not have a WASAPI device. I see the option for one in the driver dropdown but nothing populates in the device dropdown.

Below is the Log

Same problem

@ericmusicstrasbourg I thought your problem was when assigning SpectraLayers, not when playing/stopping/playing ?

So, still having the same problems 9 days later. Glad I did the trial first and didn’t spend money on it…

Maybe V9 will work for me. Will give that one a go when the trial becomes available.
