Anyone else 2.3.0 crashing anytime a VST (sometimes only specific ones) is loaded on an effects channel?? Halftime i know for sure almost always makes the DAW crash.

This never happened before on any version update prior to 2.3.0

If this is not common could i have done something incorrectly during the installation phase??

It's a bug.

Been like that since day 1 too. Akai hasn't even officially acknowledged it yet either. The only workaround is to use the software without the hardware attached. I thought they would have released a fix by now, but looking at their site Akai appears to have released some new fancy piece of hardware.

I hope they can fix this issue because it really makes them look bad.

I'm on 2.3 software and use halftime a lot and It never crashes. Have you updated to the latest version of halftime? Also, i want to note that I'm using the software only with a 2000xl so maybe the issue has to do more with the connection to the controller. Try running just the software by itself and opening halftime and see if it still crashes.

Yes, i have reported the issue, i want to say 2 or 3 times so far.

Also, yes i think it does have to do with the hardware. If i disconnect the hardware and restart the software i am able to add VST's perfectly fine and even save them and reconnect the hardware and it will run fine.

I have not reported this aspect yet but im about to do so now.

Well, it's almost April 2019 and 2.4 also crashes when loading the included Air VST effects on the effects channel. I'm using an MPC Touch. :WTF: :Sigh:

Is anyone at Akai taking this seriously? This should have been caught and fixed in beta testing many times over...
