Used to piss me off, especially the STBB where maschine crashed on me, I think it was about 27 - 29 times, wasn't a vst, it was loading a 10 min sample to chop something small, every time I would try and load the fucker BOOM!. You can learn some great lessons on patience and anger control out of this, my attitude now if something crashes, is either leave it alone or, you can blatantly do better. Now you know which vst kicked you in the nuts, see if happens again if it does don't use it. But it does suck, when you have your flow going your feeling what your doing and then it's gone, it's like death, I'm sure, we go into shock and then mourn our beat that never happened ha ha!! so chin up, as you were, and don't let it BEAT you.

I hear you on this. It got me in the habit of saving more often. One good thing I can say about Ableton, I've had a plugin crash it 3-4 times and it has always auto saved.

unfortunately FL Studio is like the retarded step-brother of Ableton, so instead of saving it'll just sit there drooling until it crashes over some unknown reason...but yeah, in the end it's completely my fault for not taking the two seconds to save. it's tough though, especially once you get in that zone.

word. the auto-save function is one of the things I really like about ableton. There was one time where it didn't work, but it was pretty much my fault, cus I didn't save for like 6 or 7 hours and ableton didn't manage to reconstruct all the shit I've done. Other than that, it works pretty well. Long story short: Frank, you should get in on ableton. hehe.

Oh shit! I almost spit my drink everywhere. Haha! Yeah James, ableton is nice. There's a big initial learning curve, but after that it makes more sense than any other DAW I've used and I've been through most of the major ones. Of course, we all know that creative dudes can use whatever, but it's definitely worth a stab.

I can vouch for this. I used Reason for about 10 years also, and I don't think it ever crashed unless I had it Rewired through Cubase and the shady copy of Cubase was probably the culprit.

I use to have my MPC plugged into a bootleg surge protector and every time someone walked passed and yanked it a tiny bit it would cut off. It use to piss me off but now a days I can usually whip it back up in no time.

yeah, i should probably start investing $ into actual licenses and legit programs lol...up to this point i've only been using either my SP-303 by itself or a cracked version of FL Studio 9 with VST's and plugins i downloaded for free from various, possibly shady websites. fyi "expo" was the culprit in this particular instance, so watch out for that.

Look up your image line folder ---> FL studio (xx) ---> Data ---> backup... Works for me most of the times...

Yeah, ten years of reason and cubase...

One time reason couldn't load a song anymore because of a "corrupt file" or something like that?
Still don't know what that was about... it prevents you from loading samples that are not compatible...

Cubase is pretty solid too... have a cracked version... sometimes have to start it up twice...
Lately it's getting more glitchy... but my gear's also getting olderand I'm doing heavier and heavier projects.

I takes a while to get over a loss... but after several years ;) you realize you can then make a way better track than the lost one was...
