I’ve used Audacity for some time, and recorded many guitar parts using Guitar rig 5 plugin. Then i bought a new computer with windows 8.1 (earlier I had W7) and every time I try to apply plugin “Guitar Rig 5” to the track, Auduacity freezes and crashes.
I’ve reinstalled with reseting preferences, nothing happened.
Reinstaled Guitar Rig, nothing happend.
I don’t know if it’s the system fault because it’s the firs time i use Audacity on Win 8.1
Other plugins work correctly ( I have only one VSTi plugin, which doesn’t work)
Tried to download and install free amp simulators, ended up with 5-6 programs providing spam and unwanted Opera bowser.
I don’t really know if it’s VSTi, what I know that i put the file guitarrig5.dll into the Audacity plugin folder.
Are you using Guitar Rig 5 Pro or the free Guitar Rig Player?
Guitar Rig 5. I’d rather spent some $ than buy every single effect in existence (and amps).
What version of Audacity are you using?
Lastest, 2.1.1. I just downloaded the 2.0.6 version to check if it’s the version fault.
Does the problem only happen if you apply the effect while playing audio, or does it happen even if you stop playing before applying the effect?
What I do is: start recording (thorugh Rocksmith RealTone Cable) → play something → stop the recording, i got clean sound from my guitar. Then I go Effects → guitar rig and this is the problem.
Today I found off that when I delete three files in Audacity’s folder in Appdata: pluginregistry.cfg, pluginsettings.cfg and audacity.cfg i can install the plugin again- then it’s working. When i close the window, i cant and I got to delete the files again.
