Windows 10

amd x6

Program worked yesterday but crashes every time when songs are loading and they have waves plugins in the song. I've uninstalled the programs/plugins reinstalled to the same problem. I reset the blacklist. I'm starting to get upset because my studio is down and I have client's projects that I need to work on.

I've never reached out before, please help!

Same here, almost.

Waves plugins sometimes crash S1 by me too. Not when opening a project that has them, but sometimes when I open the plugin itself it crashes.

Side rant: All Waves plugins don't scale for my 4K monitor, so they're tiny...

****! I'm still on S1.3.5.1. And I'd like to update!

Waves works w/o a problem. Until I see a good reason to chance the updates, I'm staying put! Can't believe you've gotten no fix to this!

I finally figured out the problem. Amplitube 4 (used in my large songs WITH waves) developed a registry problem. I corrected the problem and am up and running again!

Thank God presonus gives 5 licenses. I was able to figure this out by isolating the plugins on my laptop and transfering the song on a thumb drive to my desktop for troubleshooting.

Waves wasn't the problem at all, even though I swore at them like they were. Haha.

On OSX the VST2 version of Amplitube is instable with S1. Using the AU version, you do not have the crash on loading sessions. Also the S1 3.5.5 versions has a lot of crash on load issues. I you experience that, going back to 3.5.4 loads your session.
