Hey guys, i don't know why but my one project is not working, its loading infinitely, also i had couple of copies of it and none of it works. Also other projects are opening normally, any ideas how to fix it?

Possibly using a VST in it that is borked? Removing the VST may help if that's the case. I've never had an issue with my songs corrupting besides issues with VST's.


Is there a possibility you ran out of memory initially saving the song? This can lead to corruption, and most likely not an easy or even possible fix.


Don't forget the .xrns files are also .zip files - so you can dive through and make sure all the samples are still working in the bundle, also that the .xml files are not corrupted.

If you're using any VST plugins that'd definitely be a good place to start looking.

Maybe one of your plugins is not registered or installed correctly, and is doing something weird when Renoise tries to scan/load it.

Some plugins may pop open a nag screen or dialog box when they're not supposed to, and that window may get stuck open somewhere hidden or behind Renoise itself, basically locking the entire application until you click 'Ok' or whatever it is.

Next time it happens see if you can Alt+Tab to some other window, or open Task Manager and see if there's anything weird going on.
