I had an incident this weekend with Mixcraft 6 Pro (current version). I had a track that I used a third party plugin on and it prevented Mixcraft from shutting down. I used the log to track down the bad plugin, removed it from the track, but Mixcraft still would not close. I ended up removing the plugin from the VST folder completely and it cleared up the issue. Now the question becomes, if I told Mixcraft not to use the plugin (by removing it from the track) why would the project still want to use it (load it)? (Could it be the back up versions of the project still had the bad plugin loaded to the track?) I know that all plugin directories are scaned and loaded at start up, but if the project does not use it, why would it prevent a project from closing. By the way, the project saved fine, Mixcraft would just not shut-down. I had to manually stop the process. :?

I think so because I've had plug-ins that I've removed from the vst file & it's still tried to load it when going back to that song.it never kept MC from shutting down though.

Also please note that Mixcraft can only use 32bit plug-ins.

See 0.17 to 0.20 of this tutorial video.

One other thing to mention: If your plugins are wrapped, the plugin may crash, but Mixcraft will be unaffected by that crash other than the track that contained the dodgy VST will be emptied of the VST and have to be reloaded.

Great responses! Thanks. Still curious as to why Mixcraft would hang open and not close? It didn't crash, just sat there, no response (windows indicated the applicaton stopped responding). Any insight Acoustica?

Hi,

It's hard to say what happened without more information. Mixcraft will attempt to remove plugins from memory when you exit Mixcraft, so maybe this plugin wasn't cooperating. It's interesting that it still happened after you removed the plugin from the track, but maybe something was still hanging around in RAM. Restarting your computer would likely have corrected that.
