Chain conversion crashes Audacity 2.2.0

Post by Merowinger » Fri Nov 03, 2017 9:19 am

Hello!

I'm a big fan of the Chain conversion feature of Audacity but it doesn't work with the new version anymore.
I use the feature to normalize and export files in VBR 1 but when I try it with the new version Audacity crashes.

The upgrade from Audacity 2.1.3 to 2.2.0 is substantial and there could be some incompatibilities with old settings. Have you tried making a new chain from scratch?

Have you tried doing a normal export as MP3 (not from a chain)?
Does the problem occur with one specific project / file?

No, the export works with single files.

Update:
It has been verified that there is a problem with some Chains. Developers are working on this now.

And I have QA tested this on Windows 10 and macOS 1.13 High Sierra - now works on both those platforms - just waiting for a Linux test till I can formally close this bug as Resolved.
