live 11 crashing all the time

Post by oratowsky » Mon Apr 12, 2021 8:00 pm

hi,

since upgrading to 11, Live is crashing all the time.

The crash logs point to plugins every time, but it could be any plugin I own. It's literally a different plugin every time.

I've sent lots of logs to ableton support, they say they can't do anything because it's 3rd party plugins crashing, but every single plugin is crashing so it's clearly an issue with Live or my system.

If I remove the plugin that crashed Live on the most recent log, sometimes it loads, sometimes it crashes on a different plugin.

All my plugins are real licenses with the latest updates.

I did not have this issue with 10.

I've reinstalled Live, tried on a different user account.

Anybody else have these issues ? Any troubleshooting steps you guys can think of ?

I'm on a 2019 16" macbook pro on Catalina.

Thanks a lot

Using any M4L devices in the setup?
Either that or it is 1 or more plugins causing the crash, gonna be trial and error finding the culprit.

And ensure the plugins are all updated, with no duplicates.

No.

As I said, When I look at the crash logs, it is all sorts of plugins.

Every plugin I own shows up as the hung thread.

There is no pattern to what plugin is hanging.

I'm getting two or three times daily crashes with 11 where 10 was/is as solid as a rock. Loading the demo set for instance in 11 from the new Mood Swings pack will cause my CPU usage to jump up to 120% and stay there BEFORE I even press play. Like many others going back to 10 for now until Ableton fixes the bugs seems to be the only solution.

i’m such an idiot, i’ve opened and re-saved all my current projects in 11 and it’s a disaster and support tells me they can’t help me.

I can finesse open them by removing plugins , rescanning , and sometimes it works. I’m doing this 10 times a day....

well i’m sure it will get fixed soon.
