I suppose, but Waves are also a mature company, there are plenty of lone coders coding plug ins that can have issues. Waves compatibility won't mean that a plug in can't crash DP, and what with Waveshell it doesn't even mean that their current VST implementation isn't solid.


My remark was purely about whether DP has gone through the necessary patches on windows platform - to be a safe prospect for buyers. Not that no plugin would ever crash DP.

Most daws I've tested has settings to make a plugin run in a separate process - making it able to crash on it's own without taking the daw down with it. But in the end it's an issue with the plugin vendor that cause this.

I check supported hosts at Waves every two month or so to see if DP show up.

I like the ability to work in chunks, as they call it. I often find the need for rearrange parts of a song, extend some bars or a verse, another break etc. DP could simplify this quite a bit sinc eeach chunk is selfcontained - you can swap things around easily. Perfect for making video, but for songmaking as well.

Wrong!

Back on something like topic, I just built a new computer from component parts. It was regularly crashing, but only several hours after starting up and never while I was using it. (Most often in the middle of the night.) Total lock-up crash. Not even a BSOD. All computer lights still on, no HD activity or screen output. It's long, slow testing when the failure takes up to 18 hours.

So it took me a long time to figure out that it was the graphics card - manufactured by the same company as the motherboard. I still have no idea why that was causing problems or why it only happened when nothing was really running.

Computer issues are weird. The only real certainty you can have is that any piece of software will fail for someone, no matter how solid it is for anyone else.

I thnk we can agree on another: Any problem can be solved, provided there is enough time, will and dedication devoted to solve it.

Yeah the versatility of Chunk is what drew me away from Logic, and after using Live for so long, thinking of songs as blocks of parts appeals to me.

Have to say that I only know of a DAW or two that can survive a plug in crashing, most go down.
