Crashing WAY too much now. I think Im done.
« on: March 15, 2013, 02:41:04 am »
Running 1.5, running standalone, CRASHING too much for me.

Had Spark for almost a month now and haven't done one song on it because of too many tech issues.

Hi,
sorry to read that.

Can you give me some more details about these crashes?
Is there a way to reproduce them?
What OS are you using?

Are you willing to try the 1.6.1 beta version?

Hey Kevin.

My specs are: Mac 10.6.8
2GHz Intel Core Duo
2 GB Ram.

The crashes usually happen when some message pops up up on the screen, cant remember what it says but it gives me a "Ok or cancel" option. Either one I choose, it will crash the whole Spark program.

Hi,
thanks for the screenshot.
Looking at your system specs which are just the minimum requirement, I guess this is due to lack of CPU and/or memory.
I will try to figure out what goes wrong with that.

Thanks again.

Hi,

Does it happen randomly?
Does it happen when you're loading a kit or a preset?
Can you tell us what you're doing with Spark when this popup appears (are you just playing patterns, or hitting the pads, or both at the same time...)?

Thx

Seems to happen when im loading something or there is some sort of loading going on. Its random, not all the time.

But like Kevin said, it could be my computer specs. But then again, I run Studio One and have been running it with ZERO problems. And I usually have ALOT going on in a Studio One session!

Standalone 1.6.1 is crashing for me too...mostly when I try to save a user project but randomly otherwise


Im on Win7 64bit, 4 gig ram, i5 2.66ghz...its just a simple set so it isnt pushing CPU

screen says nothing except "search for solution online" etc

Hi kcearl,
unfortunately, I am not able to reproduce the issue you are encountering.
Would you be willing to try a development version and send me a dump file generated by windows when it is crashing?

Hi Kevin, thanks for getting back to me...Ive done some trouble shooting and I think my anti virus and internet were causing some conflict, the worst was during an update and when a pop up appeared from Sony...with these off Ive had one crash whilst saving and a blue screen...but Ive been playing and making kits this morning and it seems more stable

If it starts again Ill send a dump file
