I've asked about crashes regarding the wideorbit plug in before. Adobe told me to talk to Wideorbit. Wideorbit told me to talk to Adobe. Clearly Adobe and Wideorbit are not talking to each other.
In short if, i attempt to save a session that has a mono wideorbit .wave file - the program crashes.
This just happened to me (and happens somewhat regularly if i'm not perfectly careful)
What's even worse, is that right before the crash i saved the session (the wide orbit file separately) and all was well. I then hit save again, and the session crashed. Adobe asks if i would like to continue the session i had started, and it seems to forget that I just saved it prior to it crashing.
Frankly, for the amount of money it costs to license this software it's really disappointing that it crashes so often. I would gladly buy it for my personal use if it wasnt riddled with problems. Adobe has switched to a subscription model, i assume to battle back against software pirating. But considering how buggy the software is - i honestly can't blame people for doing what they do. Paying for something means you should get what you pay for. hundreds of dollars a year for buggy software seems like a really bad deal.
I am pretty sure there won't be any solution to this problem as it's been happening for years and it doesn't even seem that Adobe or Wideorbit is even beginning to look into it. I just thought I'd send this email I have no other recourse. I have to justify to my managers why we should pay Adobe for their software. It may be time to seek alternative DAW software that doesn't crash on a daily basis - and who's tech support doesn't pass the buck.
Thanks for reading.
