Hey guys, love your work.
I’ve had recurring problems with Ardour 5.12 where sessions with several MIDI tracks, all using the FluidSynth plugin would (after reaching a certain level of complexity) become seemingly corrupted such that Ardour would crash when I opened the session.
I could open in “Safe Mode”, but the only way to get the session closing and opening correctly would be to delete all plugins, then add them and configure them again one by one. (Very painful.) And the problem would soon (if not immediately) recur.
After reading Paul’s blog post about the changes in the upcoming Ardour 6 release, I cloned the source code and compiled from master - and everything now seems to be working beautifully.
No questions, I’m really just posting this in case anyone else is struggling with similar problems.
