3.2.0 Crashing a lot, not supporting vst3 ERA, no real time EQ.

I use audacity for podcasts and it’s acting weird after update. First off, software is crashing a lot, even with clean install. Second of all the vst3 plugins from ERA 6 are just insta crashing audacity. Effects that can be used in real time does not have EQ, eq is mostly a key to mixing, it still forces me to use another software like fl studio with their parametric eq, since the one from audacity is really outdated. Also the themes in audacity like the dark one still has frames in white color. At this point the previous versions before 3.0 were much more efficient.

I am also facing the crushing issue with ERA bundles. Even the playback is not working when I add any ERA effects.

Well now on top of that, all my project crashed, and no matter which file I’m opening I get insta recovery menu, none of it works, nice. I didn’t do any changes, this is raw software with few ERA plugins and that’s it.

I don’t have a solution, but there’s a couple of options available to you:

You could go back to an earlier version of Audacity. Many older versions are available here: https://www.fosshub.com/Audacity-old.html
(I’m currently using Audacity 2.4.2 for production work due to unresolved problems in Audacity 3.x).

You could ask, or inform the developers of the problem on Audacity’s discord channel: https://discord.com/invite/audacity

I went back to the 3.1.3, when I worked with 2.4.2 the issue were huge file sizes, when I edit 2h podcast it could go up to 200 gb if I didn’t saved for a while.
I kinda found solution, whenever I opened any project file I had this recovery menu, I just had to discard the project, recover or skip wasn’t doing anything.

Do you still have the same issues with 3.2.1 ? https://www.audacityteam.org/download/
