Hi Everyone, Mac spec above ! 

I wonder if anyone can help me with this. Studio one crashes very often when removing a plugin. I have looked at many threads etc and have checked the following, 

- VST 2/VST 3 Duplicates ( as in, I don't have the same plugin on both VST's if that makes sense) 

- Is it Native or 3rd party etc.. (it happens with all plugins) 

It happens on songs with only 4 tracks, songs with more tracks, some with very little DSP applied, even with only 1 or 2 plugins, so hardly any CPU being used etc and also happens on some songs with more plugins and higher CPU usage. 

I have seen a thread advising to remove and reinstall RAM cards and see if that solves it but I don't want to risk that. 

Thank you for taking the time to read and hopefully respond.

I am having the exact same problems. I felt like once I did a recent update with Apple and the most recent studio one update, I have seen this problem almost constantly. I thought initially it was Catalina, but I’m seeing more now people with other operating systems having the same problem. Then I thought it was 3rd party plugins, now the studio one plugins are crashing constantly. I’m on the verge of wiping My computer clean and reinstalling everything or even possibly moving on from Studio One altogether. I’ve gone down so many avenues the last month or so to try and fix this problem with no progress. It’s extremely frustrating.

Another problem I’m also having now: After I get a good amount of scratch tracks down and save the song... it crashes EVERY SINGLE TIME I try to open it back up. And I’m talking maybe 2-3 mins worth of music. One Kontakt open and 2 Ampires. That’s it. Once I get a little bit of music saved, every time I try to open it back up again, crashes. It’s extremely frustrating. I have recently upgraded my computer to Almost exactly Kris Borland specs except an intel i7 and I’ve had more problems now than ever had with previous studio ones and a lesser computer. I’ve used studio one for years but this is getting ridiculous. I’m eyeballing other DAWs at this point.

Yep. Very frustrating. I have a lot of disabled plugins because removing them is too risky.
