Working fine on my Mac. Wonder if others on Windows are experiencing this?

I made a blank session, loaded the plugin and it worked ok.
After that i opened the session i had trouble and it loaded fine. We never know what to expect from a digital system..

was a big fan in my ppc days... but somehow things seem not to work easily like before with these plugs... not sure why
... using current Mac OS,,,, deleted and ignored their "free" for a limited time... last multi-effect plug.... for these reasons

No problems here. Check out if there was a dump file generated in the Reason log folder under:
C:\Users\[YOURUSER]\AppData\Roaming\Propellerhead Software\Reason\Logs

If it crash, you will have a good chance that a dump file is there. If you can open it with Visual Studio (or something similar) it can give a good hint, what happened. If you dont have it, you can zip it and send me a file link via PM and i will have a look for you.

Nop, no dump files in that folder.

Ive had the exact same problems with Soundtoys in Reason.. Every once in a while a session essentially gets corrupted thats using and instance of it, and it constantly crashes at load up. If i load a blank session, i then can bring the same plugin in no problem.

I wrote to them around 4 months ago to ask a question about one of their plugins. Got an answer a week ago.

At least you got an answer. Since they got a quite good reputation and they probably earned a big bunch of money with their plugins, i would expect a bit more...

I am using Soundtoys 5 and I have absolutely all of their plugins. Complete catalog. They worked for me in Reason 10 back then and now 11 without any problems whatsoever and I do use them extensively. I often use Alterboy for weird FX.

I also use them in Ableton Live, Cubase and FL Studio. I never had any problem. Zero - literally.

Windows 10 here.

Genuinely interested, please report here once you solve your problem in any way. I would like to know what caused it and how it was solved.
