Reproducible crash in 2.3.0 when applying "Bass and Treble" filter while playback is running

Fedora 29; audacity-freeworld-2.3.0-1.fc29.x86_64 from RPMFusion repository.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open MP3 file
  2. Select all
  3. Effect > Bass and Treble…
  4. Enter some random values
  5. Click “Start Playback”
  6. Click “Apply”

Application freezes.

I’d love to paste my stacktrace but everytime I try I get “Sorry, you have been blocked” shown by Cloudflare.

This works fine on W10


Audacity 2.3.0 is for Windows and MacOS only. It should not have been packaged for the RPMFusion repository as a “release” package as 2.3.0 is “experimental” on Linux and known to have some serious issues (including the one that you describe).

The current release version for Linux is Audacity 2.2.2.
The next release version for Linux will be Audacity 2.3.1, which is scheduled for January.
