Crashing with simple sound player...

  • A simple(st) patch with sound players and note on/off watchers I made to use with a MIDI keyboard crashes every time I trigger the sound files. I use 1.3.0f24 and MacOS 10.8.2. Any ideas?

    What format are the sound files and how long are they?


  • They are all .aiff's and differ between 15sec and 1:30min. I use mostly short parts of them. They are footsteps, dog barks, fog horns, etc.

  • Actually just figured out that it crashes every time the sound files hit the end point. If we stop the file before reaching the end point it survives.

    To get around this for the moment you can just rename the files to .mov and play them in the movie player. Please file a bug report, you can see the link to the form in my signature line.


  • Dear All,

    I have been working with bozzy on this. It is a 10.8/Moutain Lion specific crash. I've fixed the bug.. but will need to test it to be sure.
    Here's the User Actor I supplied to him to allow him to simulate the functionality of the Sound Player actor using Movie Players.
    Best Wishes,


  • Thanks Michel and Mark..! I really appreciate all your help during Holidays..!
