Mar 06 2012 | 10:36 am

Hi again,
it looks like something is wrong again.
Before I had problems with coll and refer, but now that is fixed.
Now this is what I see. The application crashed, and this thime i have no minimu clue about what it can be.
Do see anything that might help?

Thanks a lot

one thing… maybe… could it have something to do with this message appearing when i build my app?

vst~: MAX_EVENTS_PER_BLOCK exceeded

The second error you posted generally occurs when you send more than 256 messages to vst~ in a single DSP block. You might want to consider thinning out the data you are sending.

As far as the crash, without a patch, it would be hard to tell exactly what is going on.

thanks Ben! hop e this won’t cause any crash… it usually happens when i dynamically delete an abstraction and recreate a new one inside my app.

btw, the patch is huuuuge, otherwise I would post.
the problem is if at least I could narrow down what the problem can be it would be very useful to me.
Any tip?
I see Kontakt vst is on the creashlog, but to me it doesn’t look like it’s the reason for the creash.
But i might be wrong, crashlogs are still kinda esoteric to me. thus fascinating.
Until I get one… of course! *_*

ok, tried to isolate the thread were I send messages to the vst.
I modified a patch which i actually discovered on the forum
Can you spot anything which may cause the crash?
PS i continue to get every now and then "vst~: MAX_EVENTS_PER_BLOCK exceeded"
Can it be related to the crash?
I attach also some crashlogs which I think are related to the vst,
For now, thanks a lot!

I don’t see anything in this patch that would cause crashing, but I also am missing an abstraction or external called ‘Offgate’.

There were some fixes for Kontakt along the way, in both Max 5 and in Max 6. If you are able to try the demo, are you getting the same crashes with Max 6?

I’m working with 5.1.9, but sent a mail directly to cycling74 to have their opinion if that is a bug or something wrong from my side. it’s three days i’m following this error (see even last post from me of minutes ago) and still have no clue. nothing. so stressful…
btw… thanks Ben!
