I'm in PT 6.7 cs1 Dual 1.8 G5 OS 10.3.6 with 1.5gb of ram. DAE buffer on level 2 with H/W buffers at 256. When searching for sounds RMX will quit working. No freeze, no crash...just no audio all of a sudden. I can make it happen quite often with the some of the sound menus like elastic or cinematic so it seems like it is a problem with large memory patches.
I try clearing the multi.....nothing works until I unload the plugin and then re-instantiate it. I am using the latest RMX. (1.0.8)
I tried what you suggested. New session with only a stereo audio track and a midi track. Still does it. In fact I was able to nail down an exact sequence of events that will make it quit working.
-Open the plug and go to the directory page.
-Select "Sound menus," Claps and snaps will come up and I can play those sounds from my midi keyboard
- then select "retro hits" in the suites window. I can hear those sounds.
-then select "Turntable FX" in the suites window....I can hear these
-then select "retro hits" again.....and this is where it stops working.
I can repeat this with the same results every time. And oddly enough Protools unexpectedly quit when I was re-instantiating RMX one of those times. If Eric or anyone reads this who can decipher, I have the log file from that crash if it can help. It says "spectrasonics" a lot.
