|Summary||0008428: Crash when opening a-* plugins|
|Description||Since 6.3 (which from what I understand introduced new gui to a-* plugins), Ardour crashes when I open any of them (tried with a-eq, a-compressor and a-delay).|
Adding an a-* plugin works, but whenever I try to open the plugin window, it shows a black window for a few seconds, Ardour then freezes and crashes a few seconds later.
|Steps To Reproduce||Add a plugin like a-eq to a (midi) track, double click on the plugin to open it, wait for crash.|
|Additional Information||Running Ardour on latest Windows 10 Professionnal 64bit version. Using a laptop with Optimus (Nvidia 1070 and Intel chipset).|
OS: Windows 10 version 1909
CPU: Intel Core i7-8750H CPU @ 2.20GHz
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070
GPU2: Intel UHD Graphics 630
Audio interface: Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 USB
Do other openGL plugins work? e.g. x42-eq or any Harrison XT-* or overtoneDSP ones.
If not, a common issue there are outdated video drivers and updating the driver fixes this.
PS. meanwhile you can right-click > Edit with generic controls.
So, I updated the NVIDIA drivers to the latest, and still crashed on both a-* plugins and the Harrison Consoles ones.
However, I made Ardour run on Intel integrated graphics (Intel UHD Graphics 630) and it works.
So there is a fix, but I'm not sure exactly why it is so.
