Default 8.01 bugs

8.01 OSX 10.5.8
Dual 1.8 G5

-Selection of Delay Compensation Engine causes crash
-On certain crashes, restart attempt gives me Error 600 which requires full system restart
-Some sessions horizontal scrolling issues, some sessions no horizontal scrolling issues
-'Eleven' causes instant horizontal scrolling issues.
-larger sessions crash on quit or close, most of the time requiring full system restart to open the next session.


Plugs are clean, all routine maintenance done.

Digi, you're killing me.

Anyone have a workaround for any of these?

Appreciated, thx.

How about every time you open a session where you were close to maxing out your system, it tells you that it couldn't actually make all the plugs active again (even though they were active right before you closed the session and working just fine).

Seriously, this one is driving me crazy. I've now stopped closing PT and have begun leaving the session open until I'm done with it.

Digi, please get the DSP allocation under control. This is a bit ridiculous. Why should it work and then not work once I close and reopen the session?

Same here ! The session closedowncrash is more rule than exception.
Since a few weeks PT 801 crashes on my MacPro everytime i'm closing down a session.Firsts it was occasionally, last few days regularly, today evrytime...
Also...the last 2 days causing 5 kernel panics on the Mac.
I made sure to exclude hardware failure :
I've done about everything 13 years of PT-experience can think of....reparing permissions, repairing external drives, reinstalling PT, had techtool deluxe running to check for MAC-hardware failures,
done digitests, trashed PTprefs, trashed PTdatabases, and at least ran digi tech utility tool. ALL OF NO RESULT WHATSOEVER

The Mac crashreport often says EXC BAD ACCES (sigbus)

DIGI:
Is there a temporary workaround or permanent solution for this, because it really drives me nuts.

running MacPro ( early 2008 harpertown ) dual quadcore 2,8 GHZ
Leopard 10.5.5
PT 8.01 HD6 accel

Yes this crash on close/quit when you are accessing mulitple sessions throughout the day is a real pain in the *ss.

I've seen buggy PT releases as we all have but none that interfere with workflow to the degree that this one has. I worked on two tracks last night. The first session flawless, no horizontal scroll issues not a crash...successful session. The second file I opened up I wrestled with 2 hours and by the time I got things sorted I had lost the will to do anything And this is the problem with releases like this. This particular would not allow me to open up the delay compensation engine without crashing. Create a new session, import all of the session data into a new session. Sheesh. And then the scroll issues. Committing tracks with plugs in hopes that a plug is causing it and I can eliminate it. ie. Eleven. No dice. Heading into the studio right now and absolutely dreading having to wrestle with this nonsense.

And they want how much to crossgrade? Yeah Right.

I have been loathe to think about Logic but at some point does it make sense to have a look, or is it all the same issues over there?

Me too, but never like this. It's to the point where when I open the session and it tells me it can't make plugs active because there's no more DSP, I have to sit there and convert to RTAS and then back to TDM, let it recalculate and see what happens. After a few times of doing this it usually finds the right DSP allocation and the plugs work again.

Serious PITA.

same issue here on HD2/8.01/1.5.8/PPC Dual 2.0. A few times I had to boot of my tiger drive to get the work done. Tried all same remedies: repair permissions, etc.
Is it 8.01 or 1.5.8 or the combination of the two?

Oh yeah, and my "ReVibe" TDM plug sometimes goes silent or just buzzes like a spring reverb! It's up to date, just went nuts when upgraded to 8.01

Also, every once in a while I'll open a session, works fine, close it, open it back up to check something or whatever, everything plays, meters are showing and there's no sound.. So I close out PT, open it back up, reload the session and I'm good..

To all whom replied to this trhead :

1. did this problem start to show occasionally since installation of PT 8.0.1 ?
2. is the this problem getting worse from day to day ?

Yesterdaynight i was creating/ preparing sessions, so there was no audio involved. Guess what... no problems shutting down the session.
I'm going to test and provoke this today to see if there is consequence.
So today i'm going to give Diskwarrior a shot at this.
