Hello, I have unfortunately been having a bad time with mixcraft crashing on me, it happens when I use Nectar 3 and Nuetron 2 from Izotope. On the Mixdown I will get an error saying "mixcraft has detected an error with blah blah... This plugin has been muted. We recommend saving and restarting mixcraft" something to that effect. It also happens when I try to reopen a saved project with Neutron and Nectar. I get the same message. This is the third computer this has been happening on so its not my computers. Ive been following these forums for a while trying to get a solution but none of the suggestions have helped. I did recently though see somebody who was describing the exact same problems I am facing. Someone else recommended that they switch nectar and Neutron to the VST version instead of the vst3 version and that person said it solved their problem. My question is, how do I get those programs to be VST. I uninstalled them and reinstalled them and went into the manual install mode and it had several options, VST3, VST2, a couple others but definitely no VST. How does one go about running a VST3 plugin as a VST plugin? I went on Izotopes page and didnt see any option to download products as a VST. Im not tech savvy so it may be easy to do and im just missing it. Also my next question, even though this seemed to fix this other person's issue I'm going to presume with my luck it's not going to help which means I will need to get another DAW since I am unable to get any work done as is. If I do wind up getting something like FL studio, will the plugins that came with Mixcraft whether it's the acoustica plugins or the other ones be used with other DAWs? Or will they only work with Mixcraft? Thanks for any help. I have all the newest versions of Mixcraft and the Izotope products, and my computer meets all the requirements.
