Constant Crashing with BiasFX/Amp/Pedal Demo and MainStage 3



  • Hello
    I'm trying out the desktop demo version of Bias FX...within MainStage 3.

    From the get-go, Bias is constantly crashing--within Mainstage. Is this a known issue and/or are there workarounds?

    The iPad version of Bias FX works great.

    High Sierra 10.13.4
    Macbook Pro 16 gig 2.8 GHZ Core i7
    MainStage 3.32
    Bias Amp 2 2.12 (demo) with Bias Pedal and Bias FX as audio units

    Any usage help in evaluating Bias FX (within a Logic/MainStage environment) is appreciated.



  • It's solid as a rock for me with latest Mainstage 3 + MacOS. I am using full versions though. If you didn't reboot after installing the plugins you probably should. Mainstage has been acting funky if I don't do that when installing a new plug since upgrading to High Sierra but really that is the only issue I have seen in a while.

    You are probably better off filing a support ticket and you can send them a system dump etc.

    How comprehensive is mainstage for adding scripts and custom functions and stuff?

    How are you guys setting up the hardware for convenient live use?



  • @elric thanks. I'll restart and see if that helps...I'm glad to know it works well. Sometimes, Apple goes abandonware....

    If it keeps giving you grief, come on over to the dark side. I should have some setup files ready for basic stuff that you can mod soon



  • @pipelineaudio Not sure what you are looking for but it is pretty awesome and easy to use. Search on youtube for 'mainstage guitar live rig' etc. A lot of church gig, 'Praise and Worship' players seem to be really into it.

    At one poit it was Nine Inch Nails main rig: link text
