Description Peter Becker 2012-09-24 19:42:33 CEST
Hi there,

first of all many thanks for this excellent VST engine.

I am using it as a VST Plugin on a Windows 7  32 bit System. The hosting software for the DLL is Capella. The sounds created are excellent. However, when I try to record the sounds, e.g. via Audacity or Cool Edit the hosting application crashes.

I tried other VSTs without any problems. So I assume it is the LINUX server.

I am using the latest copy from 20120922

Any idea ?

Best regards

Peter Becker

I guess you are using a "freeze function" in your sequencer app. Please note that VST freezing does currently not work with LinuxSampler.

Please check if your sequencer also allows to record your session without using "VST freeze".

As described, my hosting application for the DLL is capella. This is not 
a real sequencer but a program to create scores.
It also can play the notes using a VST engine like LINUXSAMPLER.

This works perfectly. Therefore I dont think capella is using VST freezing.

The problem appears when I am trying to record the sound with the 
completely independent freeware program Audacity. This program is 
listening on the windows side and is recording everything whats going on 
on the selected sound port. As far as I know LINUXSAMPLER doesnt even 
know such a recording is involved. However it dies after a short while 
when Audacity is involved. With other VST enginews like shortcircuit, 
Kontakt 5 a.s.o. everything is working perfectly.

Does this problem still persist, or can this report be closed?
