VM Crashing Logic

Post by sunbambino » Sat Oct 23, 2021 9:01 pm

My standalone seems stable but VM crashes Logic almost every time I change a preset. Anyone had a similar issue?

I've uninstalled and reinstalled, no improvement.

My other CA plugs are super-stable, including the wonderful Eight-Voice.

I'm on OS Catalina 10.15.7

VM has crashed Logic for me at least a couple of times (I've not been using it in Logic very long), and has crashed Reason many times. I don't even have to have any modules plugged in. It's the most unstable VST/AU plugin I own.

Do you feel this could be related to the version of Logic you're using? I'm on 10.6.1 which is very stable generally under OS Catalina.

The CPU hit is astronomical particularly when changing patches and I guess this could have a lot to do with instability. (What would I know about coding?)

I have not had this issue with the excellent Eight-Voice or any other CA plugs.

I'm trying to hang on to this plug coz it's quirky and powerful, tho it doesn't have quite the bass end of Softube Modular, that's a fact

But I notice you say it crashes Reason as well.

I've just set the cores to 8 & the sampling rate to 48 (as someone recommended in another thread on this site).

No difference, crash after crash

I don't know. I'm in 10.4, under Mojave. No stability problems with any other plugins that I've experienced, including the Cherry standalones (PS20 and PolyMode), just with Voltage Modular.

Yup, interesting, that's my experience, no probs with other CA plugs.

I'm on Big Sur with Logic 10.7.1 and it crashes within minutes of opening VM and any other Cherry Audio VST.

VM and Quadra also crash Cubase and Luna. 3 major DAWS all crash because of Cherry Audio products. I've been doing DAWs for 20 years -- never seen anything like this.

No idea as to the cause, but I wouldn't assign all your cores to VM. At least leave one dedicated to the OS.
