Whenever I edit a track (Ex: compressor, maximizer etc) and save the project, and continue with creating and finishing the project, it crashes randomly. Once that happens, and I re-open the project, not only does the track(s) become corrupt and crash every time I try to copy/delete/edit it, but the WHOLE project itself becomes corrupt even if I try to save/save as... and it crashes. The project then becomes completely unusable other than opening it.
steps i've taken:
1) copied "un-corrupt" tracks to a new project and start over; failed
2) started a whole new project all together and took pictures of the tracks so i know what keys/beats i used and where; failed
3) *same as previous steps* but didn't use a compressor or maximizer, etc; failed
no matter what i do, it will eventually crash, become corrupt file, and become unusable. Its frustrating when you take hours to perfect something, just to become a waste of time because it can't be used.
I've downloaded all updates, i even did the "preference" folder "invalid" option that is at the beginning of the forum page, and i've given up. I've submitted a trouble ticket, and even gave the techs a copy of the corrupt project to see what they can do, but if anyone has any ideas or suggestions i'd greatly appreciated the help. I like sequel and am comfortable with the program, so i'd like to keep using it but not if this is the outcome every time.
sorry for the essay. Thanks to all that respond and help! I appreciate it!
