Maybe closed beta. But I am on the public beta and with the latest builds have reported the crashes. Not worth giving up on them...but clearly frustrating for daily users like myself. Seems they are taking their time on releasing the next next 9.5.x version which is refreshing because it is about cleaning the code and making it right, because the latest features are awesome and worth the wait.

I have had any crash problems, but the program is fairly unusable due to CPU spike, I have a track with some audio clips a custom drum rack and an instance of operator, it appears that operator is causing me the most problems

I'm riskily working on a project with the current beta but it's a lot more stable, rare crashes, think i've had 2 in the past few days. I keep expecting it to fall over when i load a plugin but so far so good. :)

Not having more crashes here, but I'm experiencing some really weird issue. Basically, levels of hi-hats / cymbals in a set have gone way down. I,ve tried restoring the file with Time Machine from multiple dates (in case it was my fault that i couldn't hear them anymore), but even older sets with correct exported audio all have theses audio levels wrong now. In fact, the whole song sounds unbalanced now to my hears and I wonder if it's not all messed up somehow. This was started before 9.5 and saved as a 9.5 file. I don't have 9.2 installed to verify if the pre-9.5 file works correctly. But anyway, I'll re-work it from now.
Its just so weird.

edit: seems like some filters on the new simpler are turning themselves on, and it's the cause of theses problems. either that, or i'm totally nuts (which may also be the case).

Same here, live crashes when I move some plugins around but generally it's worse when dragging plugins from the browser to a channel

WHAT IS GOING ON?

This 9.5 has lost my plug-ins which were working perfectly well under the last version.

Getting this weird crash where when I recover the program, some presets/automation for some plugins are completely reset, which as you can appreciate, is really really bad news...
same here on win7 when loading a new set or when i saved actual and then load or quit ... crash without recover-file..

and again -> old tracks from live7+8 are unenjoyable.. if they load you just think fuck, all volumes are messed up ect...
thats not because 64bit - thats because we are guinea-pig-customers.

please protect our work better by saving the engine within the set.

maybe a popUp when loading: this project was last edited by an older version of live - if you press YES live will load
the set with an compatible engine - but some newer features maybe not available. If you press NO Live will load with
the actual Engine and all changes will be saved with the actual engine.

Beta testers are in reality the ones who dares to see Live for what it is and what it can become. They form a little part of the future with their reports and feedback, while you whine and whine like an old man.

I usually have no crashes when starting up or when working in Live. Occasionally I have crashes on quit. As I always have saved before quit there are no side-effects.

One little recurring thing since 9.1 and repeated once. never more, with most beta and some released versions is that once every three months or so when I open up an older project saved with a previous version the graphical interface isn't responsive, even if Live responds to Push and MIDI. At least 9.5 only if I open a second window and click on a clip or two will it start work again. After this it never comes back until much later.

Naturally I've filed multiple reports, but it's very hard to reproduce this particular issue. I can't even do it with the same project after it has happened one time.

M4L devices loaded when a track is playing that are not compatible with 9.5 will crash Live. It's a known bug and there is a fix for it in beta.

I purchased the upgrade from 8.4.2 suite 8 to 9.5 suite on the weekend.

what a mistake.

I created a new set with 2 tracks recorded on a zoom h2 from our band's last jam. 9.5 locks up whenever I press Ctrl+e to split and make an edit. Sometimes it locks up when I drag a way file in to it to add to my set. this is one of the most common things I used 8.4.2 for.

I've tried windows 8 comparability mode, rebooting, changing drivers, even selecting no audio or using asio4all. Same crash every time. Bug appears to be 9.5 itself being a piece of shit. I'm a programmer by trade, if I had symbols, I'd attach a debugger and see what is going on.

I've sent a bunch of crash dumps. It looks like I am going to have to downgrade and demand a refund for the upgrade, as this new version is too unreliable for me to trust. :(

I have also had this issue. crashes using the 32b and 64b versions.

when I open the same projects in 9.2 32b, no problems!

(im using 32b for certain plugins)

running 2011 mbp, os x 10.8.5
