OSX: Crash with latest Synth1 when writing presets


#1

Trying out the latest version of Synth1 on Mac OSx Mavericks with Renoise 3.0.1(beta).

I get a crash whenever I try to write a preset.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open latest version of Synth1 in Renoise

  2. Press the red ‘write’ button in the Synth1 GUI

This may be a bug in Synth1 but even so, it shouldn’t crash Renoise right?

Yes, that’s very likely a bug in Synth1. Should not, yes, but unfortunately Renoise can’t catch all errors that plugins may cause, especially not when they are happeing in the plugins UI (event handlers).

I cannot even load Synth1 in Renoise 3.1. Renoise crashes immediately. Any solution for this?

Synth1 1.12 and Renoise 3.1.1 work OK in Win 10 for me. Plugin sandbox is off. Auto-suspend is off.


(ffx) #5

Try 32 bit version of synth1. The 64bit build is buggy, at least on macos. If you are on macos, you can strip off the 64bit binary from the universal binary, so even Renoise 64bit will load the 32bit bit synth1 thru the bridge.

Now it loads (after I deleted the synth1 plist file), but the mouse position on the GUI is totally off. How do I get the 32bit version?


(ffx) #7

Either by loading Renoise 32bit or striping off the 64bit binary from Synth1.vst/Contents/MacOS/synth1

lipo -remove x86_64 path/to/vstbinary -output path/to/vstbinary_new
mv path/to/vstbinary path/to/vstbinary_old
mv path/to/vstbinary_new path/to/vstbinary

Thx!
