Tried Renoise x64? Renoise x32 on 64bit OS does not crash. Also try a higher negative value for transposing. Hold the transpose value box and drag it downwards.
Yes, of course. Renoise 3 64-bit. Just tried it again, this time with a 5-minute stereo sample (the first was mono). No problem.
I tried again, this time dragging down the value. I'm at -97 semitones (I mistakenly referd to cents before but it was "st").
It hasn't crashed, but it's not responding either.
A problem caused this program to stop interacting with Windows.
Problem Event Name: AppHangB1
Don't know if this is a Renoise crash or just my machine fighting for resources.
As practical matter I'm not inclinded to transpose a five minute stereo sample down 8 octaves. But that's not to say there isn't a need for that or that Renoise should lock up when trying.
So I force-closed Renoise and tried it again.
No problem at -30 ST. Or -39. Or -80
But when I hit -97 again I get the white screen.
I can type in -90 and it's fine.
Click down to -95 and OK.
Click to -97 is OK too, but one more click down (i.e. trying to get to -98) and it stops responding.
