Default PT Crashing when I try to open a particular session

Hi. I'm running PT 11.3 on a PC. Every time I try to open a particular session it crashes. How do I open the session without any active plugins? I already tried holding down shift while selecting and opening the session but that didn't seem to do anything.

Is there something else I can try?

It opens other sessions just fine.

Default Re: PT Crashing when I try to open a particular session

You'll need to try that again as that is the command. Maybe its just bad timing? In any case, with PT open, hold SHIFT and double-click the session .ptx icon and keep holding SHIFT until the session opens.

Option #2-if the above does NOT work(IOW, the session does not open), then its probably not a plugin, but a corrupt audio file. In this case, create a new blank session(same sample rate and bit depth) and then use the Import Session Data function and try importing a few tracks at a time. Each time a batch of tracks comes in without a crash, save before grabbing the next batch of tracks. With any luck, you may be able to nail it down to a single track as the culprit

Option #3-same as option 2, BUT change the sample rate(IOW, if original is at 44.1K, make the new one at 48K). Then let PT do SRC(sample rate conversion) as it imports tracks. This re-writing of the audio files might smooth over corruption(it has worked for me in the past, though not every time)

Thank you. I'm working on option 2 now. I finally figured out which track crashes things. but now another midi track is crashing things. The universe just does not want a trombone line in this session.

Going to try option 3
