The problem here seems to be the plugin. does it work when creating a track without synth?

No problems with empty track.
BTW, recently, I think I missed a second problematic plugin, SinGen. It crashes in the same way, but at least I can use it by swapping another working plugin in the project (this method does not work for General MIDI plugin)

SinGen crashlog attatched.

The problem is that 6.9 was the last version with PPC support.
So those reports are a bit too late (https://discourse.ardour.org/t/request-for-help-testing-before-6-7-release/105912 ).

We've meanwhile moved on "modern" C++11 (also 10 years old now), but that requires at last macOS 10.9.

I understand.
On my G5 with Debian Bookworm 64bit those problems not occur :)
Btw, thx for you effort.
