Hi,

Reaper crashes every time I load S-Gear via Bluecat Audio Patchwork.

Steps to reproduce:
- Open Reaper
- Load Bluecat Audio Patchwork
- Load S-Gear instance into Bluecat Audio Patchwork
- Change Amp.

This always results in a full crash and the Reaper process dies.

Oddly enough, S-Gear works just fine when loaded straight into Reaper, or using Patchwork standalone. Windows 10 64 bit is my OS.

Discovered a workaround: Using the VST3 version of S-Gear seems to be causing the crashes. The VST2 plugin works just fine.

Thanks for the heads up. We will have a look at it, but sometimes simply using another format indeed works fine.

Another thing you might want to try is to disable undo tracking on the slot where the plug-in is loaded. Some plug-ins have bugs that may cause crashes when they are requested to save their state while being manipulated.
