Unfortunately it's not just one preset and it's not consistent. It seems that if I make too many moves with Fathom then Logic will crash the next time I try to record.
Anyway, I am attaching a Logic project that has a couple of instances of Fathom in it that was crashing the program repeatedly.
I have some other random observations that may or may not be useful about using Fathom on my setup.
-When I load the Fathom presets I have saved, the sound is correct but none of the modules or modulators are present or accessible in the GUI. All you can see is the waveform and modulation animation on the main window. (I have saved my Fathom presets under Logic's preset architecture and not Fathom's for what that's worth).
-Fathom doesn't appear in the recently used synths list which was added in Logic 10.4. Not a big deal but every other synth I use (3rd party included) does.
-There is a ton of noise and distortion when editing parameters (particularly ADSR nodes). It makes editing less than fun hearing that horrible sound the whole time. It seems like it could be CPU related but from the metering I am seeing it doesn't seem to be.
-Speaking of CPU, the last core/thread spiking issue that Logic is notorious for, seems to be a big issue with this synth. I know Logic has reported to make ground with this issue in recent updates and I have noticed improvements but not with this synth.
Anyway that's all I can think of off the top of my head right now.
Don't get me wrong, I really like this synth. It has a great sound. The workflow is good but could be improved. But these issues are unfortunately particular to my setup.
To be honest though it may be something to do with my hardware (late 2013 iMac) just not liking Sierra and for that matter Logic 10.4.1 (though Fathom is the only plugin that is actually crashing Logic, I am also noticing odd behavior in other ways with this new configuration).
I am getting way fed up and considering rolling back to Yosemite.
Since I upgraded my main audio and project external drive keeps ejecting for no reason, I get this annoying iCloud notification that won't go away (even though I disabled iCloud because I don't use it), the performance of my DAW seems to have suffered a bit, and all kinds of little things just seem to be not working right.
Logic 10.4 is a very cool update but I don't think it is quite worth all this.
Sorry for the off topic rant but I am just a bit frustrated right now.
