Output Arcade crashes

Getting started with Juce and loaded Arcade Output vsti into the AudioPluginHost and it crashed:

Exception thrown at 0x00007FF948138D26 (Arcade.vst3) in AudioPluginHost.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation reading location 0xFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF.

Any ideas please?

Are you running a debug version of the plug-in? Without a debugger attached you’re not going to get much information about what’s caused the crash.

Access violation reading location 0xFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF implies that something hasn’t been properly initialised. If you’re running the AudioPluginHost with a debugger attached it’ll show a callstack of where the crashed occured that should tell you if it’s a problem with the plug-in or with the host.

Thanks for this - looks like it’s Arcade? but how come the plugin works fine in Reason and Ableton?

The AudioPluginHost isn’t really a fully fleshed out DAW so it’s bound to fall short in some places.

It might be worth sending a bug report to Output about the crash just incase it is an issue they can fix on their end.

Even if they can fix it, I don’t think you will have much joy with this kind of plugin (injecting beats/samples) without a PlayHead, which the AudioPluginHost doesn’t provide.

That’s my hunch why it crashes, they might not check for the absence of a PlayHead, since there is nothing useful to do for that plugin (there are better options than crashing though :wink: )
