Last time (before latest Redux update) Redux did freeze mixbus whenever its editor is collapsed as stated here:
Now the issue is that whenever i try to load Redux into Mixbus, i get instant crash. Nothing can be found in the Mixbus error/stdout logs. Tho there is apple diagnostic report which i can send to the developers for further investigation. I’ve contacted Mixbus support also, and shared same informations,
and they’ve replied:
Without knowing the internal operation of the plugin, it’d be hard to tell, you might want to pre-emptively forward it to the Redux developers, pending our own analysis.
We are willing to consider any changes they reccomend!
Harrison support reply: Hmm, the report is pretty nonspecific, it looks like the plugin was being loaded and something about it caused it to crash. Beyond that it’s hard to tell. I’d definitely recommend you contact the developers.
I’ve just fixed this in Ardour/git and it will propagate to the next release of Mixbus.
Meanwhile this can be worked around by creating a MIDI track without synth and then first adding an audio-input to the MIDI track before loading Redux – click on the input selector, and pick “Add audio port”:
At the time of writing this (Ardour 6.2-149), the crash when removing the plugin still exists though.
