For a while I've noticed that my Minibrute would crash sometimes, but a quick power cycle would fix it. Last night I noticed it was constantly happening... why? Oh, I was monkey'n around with Live 9's new effects. I had the Minbrute on a channel as an "external instrument" and after it I'd put one of the Live effects (any one did this) after the Minibrute and whenever I changed any parameter the Brute would crash. I'll cross post this on Live's forum in case it's a Live issue. My other hardware synths don't seem to have this problem.
