VSig Noob: I made an Emote crash loop

Hello, 

Just started teaching myself VSig, and I'm in a situation where Emote crashes on launch repeatedly.

 

Steps:

  1. Create VSig Basic Stereo Delay
  2. Load to Next Empty Preset Location
  3. Duplicate the Template - Default FXChain
  4. remove connections from the thru module
  5. move the thru module "over"
  6. drag in my Basic Stereo Delay
  7. Emote crashes
  8. further launches of Emote crash unless I delete the FXChain containing the custom preset.

 

Can anyone point me to my error?

I'm seeing the same behavior here.

First thing is a workaround, after Emote crashes:

1. create a new VSig document (empty)

2. upload it to FXChain 1 / Slot 1

3. restart Emote

This will overwrite the module that keeps crashing Emote.

OK, that was a tricky one to figure out.  You have two problems, one causing a crash:

1. your knobs *and* the objects they control are connected to the "basicMenu" menupage object.  That is causing the crash (although, that should be filed as a bug).

2. your "statement" strings in the knobs are not correct.  They need to be in %f form.  $f for unformatted, %0.3f for zero-leading with 3 decimal places, etc.

I've attached a corrected sigfile.

Thanks for the help! 

What's the suggested process for filing bugs?

Eventide should answer that. Wondering myself...

Generally we follow the forums and support email and add tickets to our tracking system when we see bugs reported.

I've added a ticket for this one, and it will be known as EMOTE-632 in our tracking system.
