I never had any issue with studio one 4 but Studio one 5 sees to have a lot of crash rates so far, although its a great daw but its crashes making me end the process which is kinda affecting my whole system.

Best answer

In almost all cases old 3rd party plug-ins are the culprit. Contact the plug-in vendors to get updated versions of plug-ins. Studio One can't help if 3rd party plug-ins crash.
If you're still having issues, contact support

I am really getting frustrated and mad. I have several hardware synths and every time when I play for a minute on my Sub 37, Studio one just hangs up. I have to close it with the brute method on mac.

This is horrible and I am thinking of selling Studio one 5 and going back and staying with Ableton, if this is not fixed in the near time.

Same here. Also happens alot when editing hardware synths. But also when I just do stuff like duplicate parts. I have had times where it crashes every 2-3 minutes. And because I cant open the track in S1 4 I have to deal with this which is really annoying.

Im heavin huge performance issues in V5... V5 eats 60-100% more CPU in general compared to V4.6… so I can`t even play sessions that hang at around 60-70%  in v4.6 ... + i get graphics errors and crashes

very, very frustrating!!!

Yes constantly crashing for me. The most unstable version I've ever used of S1.

I know it's bad practice to jump into a new version when you have a full schedule of work but I made a mistake this time.

There is also another thread on this forum about S One 5 crashing all the time.

I have the same experience, so far. Don't know why . And now i can' t use my Melda Plugins anymore, because SO5 crashes everytime when i try to use the Plugins. Even after new installation of SO5 or the Melda 14.07 Software its' doing nothing but crashing.

I too have had the crash now on three separate occasions. Have been advising people to go to Studio One BUT this instability is making me stop. Maybe I will stay with Logic if this isnt repaired soon.

I'm running Catalina 10.15.6 and my S1 5.0 crashes every **** day.  It happens for no apparent reason at all, and it is extremely frustrating.  I hope PreSonus will fix some of this in the next update.

Me too.

Also noticed S1 5 will close for no apparent reason. I have already had to rely on 3 instances of auto-back up files to prevent a complete loss of the sessions.

It seems very buggy. Constant freezing when working it more cpu intensive projects. Never had these issues with v4 (or maybe I did at the beginning before they patched them). Checking daily for an update so that the software becomes usable in a recording environment (I still have v4 installed for work because its far more reliable).

It tends to happen when setting up sends and sidechains etc. Something probably got broken when they introduced the new cue mix stuff?
