Apply Chain not working - freezes

I've just updated to 2.2.0 (Mac w/El Capitan) and cannot get 'apply chain' to work. Any time I apply a chain to the project, a square black screen pops up as well as the apple rainbow wheel, that cannot be reduced or placed behind any other window, until I 'force quit' the program. Doesn't seem to matter which chain I apply, the program crashes. I use chains on every project and had no issues with previous versions.

There is a crash issue with Chains in 2.2.0 which has already been fixed for 2.2.1.

If you're feeling bold you could try that latest 2.2.1 alpha nightly from here: https://www.fosshub.com/Audacity-Mac-Nightlies.html

It's actually pretty stable and well worth a try - please report back if your chain works with this version.
