Xpander crashes DAW (Reaper Mac)
Downloaded and installed it 2x, but as soon as I try to add Xpander as a FX, my DAW (Reaper, Mac) crashes. Any idea?
We are sorry to hear you are having trouble with the Xpander on Mac. Since release we have found out that the Xpander can cause a crash on some Sierra (10.12) / High Sierra (10.13) systems upon loading. We are working on a version to fix this bug.
We do have an alternative solution for our Sierra / High Sierra users. You can download and install the Xpander version that is meant for BigSur system. That version does not cause a crash and is fully functional as it normally would be. The only drawback is that it has a slight color gradient difference on the interface, near the knobs. We believe this is a good temporary fix until we release an update.
The BigSur version of Xpander can be downloaded here: https://webshop.oz-soft.com/en/vst-plugin/9-xpander-vst-plugin-macos-bigsur-only.html
Instructions before installing:
Please delete the earlier version manually. The component file can be found here: System/library/audio/plug-ins/components/
A new / different version of the Xpander cannot be installed until you remove that manually.
Please let me know if it all worked out or if you have any further questions.
Thanks - that did the trick! I got a warning about a previous installation, so I removed the /library/Xpander folder (just to be on the safe side), and everything works well now!!
Thanks again for the super-quick response, and I've now got my hands full playing around with Xpander - veeeeery sweet stuff!0
Happy to hear that Dave!
