Description: Dragging a Formula Device presets file onto Renoise, crashes it.
Steps to reproduce:
Download the file org.OopsIFly.ktrk1.xrnl from Zer0 Fly’s Ktrk Formula Device Presets thread
Launch Renoise (I run Linux 64 bit v3.1.0 build 9 jan 2016)
Optionally, click “New Song (no Template)” from the File menu, just to get it to a clear defined state, but it worked with several songs that I tried
Drag’n’drop the file org.OopsIFly.ktrk1.xrnl onto Renoise
Renoise loads the presets and doesn’t crash.
Renoise hangs and I have to force kill the application (the top right X-button doesn’t work). Sometimes it displays the “saving crash backup …” line in the bottom status line, but sometimes it also hangs before that. Regardless of what it displays, I didn’t get a crash backup on restarting Renoise.
INTERESTINGLY, however, it does end up having loaded the Formula Device presets into the library!
This is weird because then, what is doing the crashing? But you won’t hear me complain too much because at least I can use those formula presets now And I only lost a small amount of work on a toy project anyway (save often, yay)
To be fair I kind of wonder if this might been caused by some quirk of my own system or perhaps other tools I have installed, instead of a bug in Renoise itself. Because, seeing the amount of downloads for that file, I can’t imagine that I’m the first to report this bug? Or maybe everybody was like “ohnoz a crash, let’s restart Renoise, hey the presets are there at least, oh well, let’s make music now”.
Hopefully this bug report is useful to the developers. Let me know if you need any more info.
