  • VEP 5.4.13741 being rather crashy

    When I load up a Digital Performer project and it starts connecting to my VEP instances, VEP will often crash. Anyone else running into this? Makes me wish I had my samples on SSD drives...

    Mac OS 10.10.3.

  • Hi Mdesigner, 

    No other reports about this, but you can always send your crash logs to

  • I installed the latest version and have been unable to revert back.  Logic X is my host so I use a mac host and pc slave instances.  I have a PC slave and older projects that load Kontakt 4 and when I click on the VEP instance on the PC the instances crash every time.  

    What is the process to revert to the past version?

  • Hello MDesigner, 

    Seems like I have not received any crash reports or DP projects from you yet. Do you want to send those to


    @thedr: Our Software Archive has an older version of VE PRO 5 available.

  • Hi Paul,

    I tried reverting both mac and pc to previous version and I received a version mismatch error on the mac plugin.  It would not see the pc slaves either.  

    I have not been able to revert back to the previous version without this issue. With this project I am ok as I am just figuring out what I loaded on the pc by quickly taking a screenshot as it crashes and reloading it on the mac in kontakt 5.

    Still I am very concerned about other projects that I will be going back to in the near future.  

    How do you recommend I troubleshoot or revert back properly?  Also where do I access the crash reports on windows 7 ultimate?

  • Hi thedr, 

    Rolling back to previous versions should be easy (even without uninstalling first). 

    Can you send a screenshot of the version mismatch error to, with a short reference to this thread?

    Please include the sequencer project as a zip file, maybe we can reproduce this here, somehow. 

    The location of the crash dump file on windows is shown in the message you get after the crash (please include the *.dmp file as well).
