I'm on Sierra 10.12.3.
Direct Mode doesn't work on Sierra, but the program still worked.
Today it crashes every time I initiate playback, no settings or anything else have changed.
I use HQ 3.15.1, haven't had any problems with it, and it's my go to player, so I suppose it isn't a real problem for me, but I'd like to know what's going on with AV+.
I emailed AV+ support.
I may be the only one here that got the error message about Direct Mode/Sierra.
I haven't had time to see about the El Capitan move of Audio Kext to Sierra.
"The crash came from an inability to open an audio file while being in a very long play queue. All files in the play queue were not accessible.
I'll fix this in a future version to avoid crashing when this happens, and display an error message."
I never ran into that problem probably because I usually don't have a long play queue. I'm typically in random play mode if I'm using AV+ in the office. Glad they figured it out for you.
Computers have a life of their own.
Crashed 20 times in a row.
Out of the Blue.
Now it's OK again.
Out of the Blue.
When in doubt reboot or power cycle everything. ;-)
Be sure other applications and unneeded services on the computer are disabled. I've run AV+ for years w/o issue but I'm not on macOS Sierra, yet. Otherwise, I would have offered to try it out on my setup.
I usually try to stay several months behind on any new OS to not only allow the OS maker to clean up bugs over time, but to let the software developers like Audirvana catch up and debug their own code on the new OS.
I'm still on Mac OS X "Mavericks" 10.11.6 for my Mac Mini audio setup. Wife is running the latest macOS Sierra on her laptop with no issues except for learning new features, but she doesn't run any audio apps.
but didn't try unplugging., which I should have done.
I only have the usb or firewire cable connected, the usb to the one with nothing else on it.
Wi-Fi is off, and usually Ehernet cable is disconnected too.
All other players continued working fine.
Then, boom, AV+ was fine again. Maybe the Mac auto- magically cleared out whatever was causing the crashes.
BTW, how do I copy a Crash Log to send to Damien, if it happens again?
I made a few Screen Shots, but the Log is very long.
Thanks for your response!
Did you already figure this out with the folks from AV ?
"IBM has performed the most comprehensive characterization of soft error rates in DRAM collecting data on roughly 800 memory devices over a 10 year period. These studies were performed at various altitudes, including below sea level in underground caves, since the cosmic ray flux increases with altitude. Using this data, a senior engineer for IBM Microelectronics predicted that 256 Mbytes of memory would average one soft error per month due to cosmic rays (EE Times, 6/22/98)."
