Bug: Crashing when adding first element to new chain.


I just found that if you don’t use the effects BEFORE putting them into a chain the following may occur:

I choose new, name it, click on insert, click equalizer, click edit parameters and then I get the bug window and Audacity closes, or the program stops responding and I have to close it.
Same if I then edit the new chain.

Hmm, I can’t find the file it supposedly created. Is it overwritten if the program works on the next try?


Which version of Audacity are you using?
Which version of Windows?
Did you reset preferences when you installed Audacity?

Thanks for the report.

I believe this bug was in 2.1.1 but not 2.1.0. Subject to final testing, it’s fixed and so should not occur in 2.1.2 when released http://bugzilla.audacityteam.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1088.

But as Steve said, Ian, if you are reporting something serious like a crash, it is imperative you give us your Audacity version (all three numbers, plus the date if it is an alpha build) and your version of Windows.

For example if you were saying the crash still occurred in a build made right now, we would obviously have to look again at the fix.

If you are worried you may lose a setting, you could save a new Chain.
