"Reaper quit unexpectedly"

Postby Arpangel » Thu Oct 24, 2019 11:08 am

Reaper keeps crashing on my Mac, I'm running Sierra.
It's suddenly started to happen, never had this problem before. I had plug-ins loaded, FM8, and Valhalla Vintage Verb.
It's very random, I don't know when it's going to happen, I'm running the latest version of Reaper.

Whenever I've had similar problems it's always come down to a specific, non-reaper plug-in.
I'd try launching a project with all the plugins disabled* and then bringing them back one by one to see if you can identify a specific culprit.

* It's a right-click option from the start menu.

...or if you'd like a more-in-depth discussion, why not have a read of my Project Recovery

Yes, I've been down exactly the same road, with the occasional 'touchy' 3rd party plug-in ;)

Thanks folks, I think I've found the culprit, Vintage Verb, it seems to happen when having more than one instance of this plug loaded.
I've also gone back to a previous version of Reaper, as it seemed to happen more when I updated to the latest version.
