I am running Audacity version 2.1.0 on Windows 8.1 64 bit (version 6.3 build 9600). My system is a I7-4710MQ with 16 gigs ram, NVIDIA GeForce GRX 860M with 4 gigs video ram. Also running DirectX 11.
The plugin I am using is QM Vamp Polyphonic Transcription on a 128k MP3 file. When the plugin gets to 100% completion, Audacity crashes. I converted the file to WAV format with the same result. The plugin works fine on other audio files, MP3 and WAV. Anybody have an idea what is causing this?
How long is the show? You can get into trouble if you have a very highly compressed multi-hour MP3 file. Audacity blows that out to an uncompressed, 32-bit floating file which would be huge and easily overrun the capacity of the machine, depending on what else you have running.
Also, Audacity is not a 64-bit application, so it and the OS are running in different spaces.
If the track you imported the file into does not show 44100 Hz in the track info (above Mute / Solo), make sure the project rate bottom left is 44100 Hz, then click the track info area to select the track and choose Tracks > Resample… from the menus at the top. 44100 Hz should be preselected in the dialogue that appears, so go ahead and resample to that rate by clicking OK.
I attached a screen shot of Audacity with the rates. I also linked to the file in question. The other songs I have used poly on have been both longer and shorter than 4 1/2 minutes. This one has got me baffled.
My name is Georgios and this is my first post.
I’m writing from France.
I’ve used Audacity for a number of years, as well as Sonic Visualizer.
Both have always worked well until I added some VAMP plugins into the Program (x86) file “Vamp Plugins”
Unfortunately, I find no way of avavoiding the following crash

inactivation of VAMP in “preferences” followed by rescan and UN check of qm-vamp-plugins.dll
results in a new crash upon “START”.
the only solution is to RENAME the “Vamp Plugins” file to
“Vamp Pluginsx”, in which case Audacity starts well, but
Sonic VIsualizer re initialises itself, after “amputating” itself of all the useful plugins.
Might there be some “easy” solution to this, for someone like myself who has only superficial knowledge conerning computers?
Thank you very much for your quick response, Gale.
When does the “old” crash happen when VAMP is enabled in Audacity Preferences and checked in the dialogue for loading plugins before Audacity starts?
– RENAME the “Vamp Plugins” file to “Vamp Pluginsx”
– open Audacity
– UNcheck loading of VAMP plugins
– close Audacity
– RENAME the “Vamp Pluginsx” file to “Vamp Plugins”
– open Audacity = CRASH!!!
Are you able to use those QM plugins OK in Audacity after you enable them in the Plug-in Manager? I think there is a problem between Audacity and that 1.7.1 version.
As soon as I place the v1.7.1 qm-vamp-plugins.cat, qm-vamp-plugins.dll and qm-vamp-plugins.n3 files in C:\Program Files (x86)\Vamp Plugins (on Windows 7 x64), then Effect > Manage… (or Effect > Add / Remove Plug-ins… in 2.1.2-alpha) crashes.
It looks like you’ll have to use the older v1.7 plugins which I think are safe with Audacity.
