Hello all. For the first time I experienced this in Renoise
For Christmas I bought as a gift for myself some AirMusic and Sonivox plugins. Yesterday I installed the synth Loom (AirMusic), played with it in Renoise, had a lot of fun with it.
A few hours later I want to open my document again, and get the error message:
Rebootet the PC, problem still exists. The 32-bit Loom still works in Renoise, 64-bit version still appears in the plugin list, but failed to open. One day later, today after work, I can still reproduce the issue.
It happens under Windows 10. Everything that is involved (Windows, Renoise, Loom) is up to date.
The logfile contains these lines:
GUI: Creating the Document GUI... GUI: Successfully constructed Application: Loading 'loomtest.xrns'. MIDI: Loading MIDI actions from file 'C:\Program Files\Renoise 3.1.0\Resources\Scripts\GlobalMidiActions.lua'...

I must remark, that I tried it right now to load in Reaper - there the 64 bit plugin works, but the 32 bit version does not show up at all in their plugin list.
So I conclude, that’s maybe not a problem of the host, but of the plugin itself.
Is there somewhere a cache file or something that must be deleted to make it work again as yesterday?
Then, with a Sonivox plugin (I believe it was Big Bang Percussions) I experienced that Renoise suddenly advised me not to use it anymore. Unfortunately I cannot remember the message exactly, as I did not make a screenshot. Will try to reproduce it another time and come back to this one later. But I must admit, that also Sonivox seems to have their issues depending on the host, as I reported in the discodsp bliss forum recently. It still works in Renoise, because I ignored the message - but, do I have to be worried to use it?
Edit: I forgot to say that it is running on an Intel Pentium CPU G3240, 3,1 GHz with 16 GB Ram, Focusrite 2i2
