I have many crashes all related to sounds loading or not loading or switching the audio device. In Halion slots are sometimes(!) empty and load instrument doesn’t work (load bar appears but slot remains empty - yes, all sounds are on my main hard drive). When I use Kontakt the crash happens often right away. IMPORTANT: this only happens when opening already created projects. When I create a new project from a template all is fine but once I reload I run into trouble or when Mac wakes up from sleep. I’m also experiencing the “cannot load file” problem with projects affected by a crash.
I tried the following fixes :
https://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=246&t=146574 used the downloadable script
cleanup_prefs_and_engine.shand made a new version for Dorcio 188.8.131.525 with the correct file paths.
- (reinstalled everything)
Nothing … sometimes it works for a while and then the wheel appears and I have to force quit.
I dug into several logs and I have a hunch that it could be the vst audio engine (and Catalina 10.15.7 ?) which is also mentioned in several posts. I attached a crash report:
Hope there is a fix, I’m even willing to switch to GM sounds because I really like Dorico. Help coming ?
