In each instance where support team investigated these issues, old plug-ins were the culprit.

Contact the plug-in vendors to get updated versions of plug-ins.

Remove J-Bridge if it's installed.

Remove any 32-bit versions.

If you're still having issues, contact support

The crashing is getting out of hand now. I've been working for 3hours today and had 4 crashes.

•Disable a track CRASH

•Click on the browser button CRASH

•Open a plug window CRASH

•Drag a plug to a track CRASH

•Let the computer sleep CRASH

It's always something different.

Restarting doesn't help.

I do this for a living and have done for over 30 years. Never have I used a more buggy DAW than Studio One.

I have used it now for almost 4 years and it's always crashed a lot but I could always put up with it but version 5 is very unstable.

I have used S1 with 3 different computers. 2x MacbookPro's and now a iMac Pro. Perhaps it's more stable on Windows.

Hopefully there will be some fixes coming soon. This version is not useable for me in its current state.

Is impossible to work like that. And they have the super idea  that you can't open the session on version 4.

How could it be the plugins when they are the same ones that work with version 4?

Those plugins still work on version 4

I am on OSX so there is no J-Bridge.

Still crashing here.

I have not yet upgraded, because the latest fix for 4.6 already didn't work out for me.
But allow me to say this:

Dear Presonus, as we have faith in your product, please have faith in your customers 
when they say: There are several things that have stopped working in version 5!

It's in the code. I'm sure it is. Even a genius makes mistakes sometimes. It's just natural.

Every programer knows better than me: A single typo bug can mess up things.
