@kv331 Is the download for this update available on your website somewhere? I logged into the User Area but I could only find the 2.9.9 installer with no mention of 2.9.10. Thanks for engaging with this forum. I think it's crucial for developers to get feedback directly from their customers and your team has been great at communication anytime I've had an issue. Thank you, I appreciate the professionalism.

When installing this over 2.9.9, the old skins are not removed. This is causing the plugin to crash in most hosts when attempting to change to a supported skin.
I tested v2.9.10 with the older skins as well, but they didn't cause any crashes. Is there a specific use case that cause a crash?

Thanks!
It happened to me when I was changing skins. It was immediate in HostingAU. But it also crashed in Bitwig, also related to switching skins. But it didn't happen every time in Bitwig. After deleting the old skins, I couldn't get it to crash.

I added versioning to skins, so SynthMaster or SynthMaster Player will not load any skins that are not compatible with the latest version. (oh yes an update for SynthMaster Player is coming as well next Monday!)

Most likely our developers have updated the version. There was a problem with the old links.

For the record this release candidate still crashes FL Studio on my studio system. I have tried everything I can think of and am working with IL support but there does not seem to be a solution.

Fresh installs of both FL and SM2 have not solved the problem.

On the same system SM2 appears to work fine in four other DAWs or at least doesn't crash under the same testing conditions. But then again no other plugin crashes FL.

So at this point I can't say if it's the DAW at fault or the Plugin. All I know is I can reproduce the issue 100% of the time.

Now getting to test this..
Did the graphics change? i am using st Dark and it looking a lot clearer than I remember..

Thanks for the new presets, btw, the Natlife ones appear in the Factory Presets Bank but when the Yoli one's don't seem to be tagged as part of that Factory Presets Bank.

Hi Teksonik,

We are currently looking at this issue again. We are trying to Repreduce the problem. It will be difficult for us to solve the problem if we can't reproduce it.

All the best

Thank you very much for your interest. We've made some minor improvements to the skins, yes. Yuli Yolo presets are definitely in factory presets, we will fix this in public release.

Tested with latest version of FLStudio and SynthMaster 2, still can not reproduce. Your project opens up fine.

EDIT: We did some further tests. When the same project is opened for a 2nd time, it caused hangs/crashes. Debugging revealed a memory leak, thank you so much for reporting this one :hug:
