Max for Live formant filter crashes Live

Post by re:dream » Mon Apr 08, 2013 11:13 am

Hi there

I downloaded and installed the Point Blank M4L formant filter advertised on the Ableton website here:


https://www.ableton.com/en/blog/formant ... -max-live/


It constantly and usually almost instantly crashes Live.

My setup: Live 9.02, Windows 7, M4L.

I have sent a crash report to Ableton.

Anyone else experiencing this problem?

That was reported as part of the beta, i suggest you contact point blank as the authors of the device...

Cheers

Will do. I am not an Ableton basher but methinks Live should not be advertising it on their site if there are known issues with it.

Hmm, another not-so-free-device-as-advertised I see. Don't have facebook and I also wouldn't "like" something before I tried it, so can't help you reproduce.

Even so; when it comes to crashes the best thing to do (apart from sending the crash log of course) is making sure you're using Live as pristine as possible. So no 3rd party vst's, no other M4l plugins, etc.

What can also shed some more light on the cause of your problems is to right click the device title bar after you pulled it in and select "Show Max window". This brings up the so called 'Runtime' window in which any warnings or errors will be displayed. That could help you get a clue as to where the problem might occur.
With kind regards,

Peter

The Finn, i'm getting lots of similar crashes on 9.0.5 with various M4L stock plugins. seems to be a serious flaw with max for live right now which is a pain since i paid for it.

but whenever i think that paid software shouldn't be so bad i remember windows.

There's a very good formant filter made by Robert Henke. Look at Monolake's website.

ah thanks. Will check it out.

One of the disappointing things about the Pointblank formant filter is that it is impossible to send them feedback on it. I tried to get support from them, but all that I manage is to get more and more promo literature for dubious looking courses :(
