Summary0008669: Random crash
DescriptionI tried using the demo version for Ardour because I was curious about the program. This version already crashed a couple of times without doing anything special. I thought it might have to do with the demo version, even though I believe that is the full version that goes silent after 10 min. I anyway paid a small subscription fee and downloaded Ardour. I first deleted Ardour completely and then Installed the newly downloaded version after paying the subscription. I opened it, tried using the Sitala sampler, and it crashed again after 10 min. I tried this another two times with the same result.

I don't know what triggers the crash but it happens every time after a couple of minutes.

In those few minutes that it worked, I added a midi track with Sitala, loaded some samples into Sitala, and drew some midi-notes in. The last crash happened when I was editing the midi-notes.
Steps To ReproduceUse Ardour for a couple of minutes
Additional InformationI don't have a lot of coding knowledge, maybe the fault is on my end. I really look forward to using the program.

I now used Ardour for a longer amount of time without crashing. This time I didn't load any samples or drawn any midi notes

This is not common behavior.

Apple's "crash logs" are normally not helpful to us in determining causes. We need our own full backtrace to do this, described at

Sorry that it's not possible to say more about your crash.
