JUCE AudioUnit crashes when quiting Logic 10.3.2


I’ve been reported by a customer that Logic 10.3.2 always crashes when closing with instance of our plugin (soothe) on it.

I’ll attach one of the full crash logs I’ve received:
soothec_au_crash2.txt (89.7 KB)

What we’re interested of here is:

The missing symbols are:

AUBase::DoRender(unsigned int&, AudioTimeStamp const&, unsigned int, unsigned int, AudioBufferList&) (in soothe) (AUBase.cpp:1503)

AUMethodRender(void*, unsigned int*, AudioTimeStamp const*, unsigned int, unsigned int, AudioBufferList*) (in soothe) (AUPlugInDispatch.cpp:296)

I haven’t been able to reproduce this. We’ve received several crash reports from the same user, with always the same symbols.

The plugin is compiled against JUCE 5.1.1 (we’re having problems with anything later, but that’s another topic). Has anything like this been fixed since, or is this a new issue? To me this seems JUCE AU wrapper dependent, which is why I’m asking here. :slight_smile:


Looks like something in your code is reading or writing to a dangling or null pointer… Without any more symbols I’m not sure how you could find out more, but it’s impossible from this to say whether it’s a mistake in your code or juce.
