EQ causes Logic to crash

Fri May 22, 2020 11:44 am

Logic 10.3.3 on El Capitan, all of a sudden clicking on the EQ in the channel strip or opening an instance through the list of plugins causes the program to crash. This isn't just a corrupt file as it repeats this behaviour with a new project. Any idea whats going on here? It worked fine before.

Update: Its doing it w/ the Gain utility as well. Makes me think something is up w/ all the stock Logic plugins. Any way to fix this w/o doing a total re-install?

I removed the com.apple.logic10.plist preference and restarted. The crashing still persists.
Is that the only file or are there others that should be removed?

If you have controllers connected you can trash the cs preference file.
Did you install any new 3rd party stuff lately?
How much space left on your system HD?

I've got EU Control for the (now Avid) Artist Mix unit loaded (not using it at the moment). I"ll try trashing that as well.
Can't say I've installed anything lately.
I've got over 60gb free on a 500gb drive.

I have seen posts recommending 20% free space on your disc. Can you trim your disc to get that?
27" iMac Pro 1.1 8 core 64 GB 1 Tb SSD with 27" Apple Thunderbolt display
MacOS Catalina 10.15.4, Logic X 10.4.8 (10.5 also being investigated/trialed)
4 TB G-RAID via Thunderbolt Display and 4 TB TBolt HDD Timemachine only,
RME UFX via Firewire to Thunderbolt Display,
MOTU MIDI express XT to USB, Seaboard 25 via BT or USB,
Roland AT45, Kurzweil PC2r & PC3X, Arturia MatrixBrute, 12Step & BCF2000 via MOTU’s MIDI
PC3X, MatrixBrute, 12Step and BCF2000 occasionally via USB.

I can do that but I don't think that will solve this problem. All 3rd party plugins work fine. Why would the ones that come built in cause the program to crash? I ran Disk Warrior on both my drives (I have 2 built in), it rebuilt the directory and cleaned up the files but that didn't help.

Does the crash log point to anything in particular?

Whoops, sorry for the late reply. I checked it out but don't know exactly what to look for there.
