Hello all, I will provide other pertinent info as needed… but I will start here. Also, I will say that my issue could be Ableton related, as I have had this specific issue happen with another VST. So, this post is more looking for a suggestion/possible answer/seeing if this is happening to anyone else. I will also post a similar thing in the Ableton forums.
Also, I have searched the forums with no luck in finding an answer - or even a similar instance as mine.
The issue I have comes when I close the Scaler 2 plug in window in Ableton. I have no issues at all with USING Scaler, and am - in fact - enjoying it… but, after I close the Scaler window, if I were to try and reopen the window (using the wrench icon on the plugin box in Ableton), it crashes Ableton.
I HAVE had this issue once before when I made a big old ugly patch in Vital, but I took that to be an Ableton/resources issue, as I have since gone back, modified power settings and other latency issues in the Ableton DAW. But, this Scaler issue happens without fail AND I installed Scaler after fixing this prior issue.
Today, I tried to circumvent this by creating the chords, dragging them to a midi track, deleting the initial instance of Scaler (after closing the window) and then trying to add a new instance of Scaler in a blank MIDI track. This ALSO caused Ableton to crash. I am at a loss, and am now reaching out the forums to get advice, find a fix… see if I am alone in this issue. A “fix” would be to not close the Scaler window, but that’s not a true fix. I SHOULD be able to close it and reopen it without this happening.
Some specs, and I will provide more if/when needed.
Windows 7 - up to date on all service packs (yeah, I know… I am waiting to get a newer computer to finally upgrade to WIN10)
Current version of Ableton 10
NEW and current version of Scaler 2
32Gb of ram
MOBO is a bit older - thus why I can’t do WIN10 - and without digging, I am unsure of how to give full specs
Older I7 processor
Windows power settings are on High Performance
If you need other info, please let me know and I will provide it.
Again, Scaler works… but this one very specific issue/crash - happens without fail. I am going to do another test about instances of Scaler in Ableton. I’ll let you know what I find.
Anyway… anyone else have this happen… even if not with Scaler - maybe you have some Ableton specific insight?
Is this an Ableton with Scaler issue… or an issue specific to one or the other?
Anyone able to help?
