Plugivery Forums _ Nomad Factory _ Magma Crashes Conistantly

Posted by: blade_master777 Jun 17 2017, 09:05 AM


I just purchased Magma, installed 1.66. It's a great concept, however I have had my machine lock-up close to a dozen times in the first hour of use, on a machine that is as stable as a rock, and hasn't had a single crash in nearly 3 years of running daily with a heavy load. I've beta tested lots of software, and am a tech, so I know my way around. It's no one thing that causes the crashs. It also takes out my ASIO driver, so I have to hard reset the machine. I've uninstalled the product for now.

My reason for writing is I know the situation is in flux at the moment, and you guys will be having a look at the state of the software, code etc. I just want to ask that you take a look at magma, please. I would like to be able to use in my productions at some point in the future. Also I am happy to provide proper detailed feedback in the various ways it currently crashes, and I'm sure I can find new ones.

I wish you luck in your new endeavors.

Rather than start a new thread .... Just wanted to echo the previous post. As long time NF user I just purchased Magma (recent Don't Crack Sale).
Software is buggy and crashes Constantly and Consistently! It has been uninstalled until further progress can be made.

Tried Magma 1.6.6 and 1.6.5 Reaperx64 Win10x64

In the interim, would it be possible for your team to code a mfx wrapper that would load a single effect until the rack gets sorted?

Hi guys,

Sorry for the late reply on that one.

We are aware that Magma can be buggy with certain DAWS, under certain circumstances.

When we took over Nomad Factory sometime ago we looked at the complete product line and we have decided that we would migrate all products to a new framework. That will greatly help us improve the overall products stability on so many OS systems and DAWs.

But as you can imagine, migrating over 70 products to a new framework is very difficult and time consuming. The new framework is ready and we will shortly launch products that will gain great stability.

We might extract all individual plugins from Magma and make them available to Magma users but again, that is 100 plugins that we need to migrate to the new framework.

We're on it and we'll keep you posted ASAP.

Thank you for your patience and your understanding.

Thanks for the reply: It helps knowing that Magma has not been abandoned. If I am able to provide any help in the process please feel free to contact me.

That is very kind of you.

We'll definitely get back to you at beta stage...

Hi Peter,

Thanks for replying on the status of the project/s. You've got a rather large challenge on your hands. To help lighten the load at beta stage, please include me, if possible. Am happy to help in that regard.

It's time to update Magma. My worst plugin.
I did not get it for free.
In Studio One Pro, 64bit, after a few minutes total failure.
Not usable for years.

Hi all,

For any/all technical issues, please contact our support team via our site. They shall be able to assist where possible to address problems.

Please note, our developers are dedicated to fixing all outstanding issues (among developing new products) and are working to port products through our new framework. This indeed may take some time to oversee for a small team and extensive catalogue collection.

Best regards,

Magma causes big problems for years, but you better make new plugins.
I will not buy anything from DC until it's done.
I have a company myself and I know what's important. My customers!
Best regards, cool.gif

I'd love to have this work properly. As it is I don't use it because its never lasted longer than 20 minutes before crashing.
Reaper, win 10
It's a great idea,please keep us informed as to progress.
Best regards

Hi all,

Just to keep you updated, we have a huge extensive catalogue to port through our new framework, this indeed taking some time with a small development team. @airbeat, you may not have been aware but our Nomad Factory CEO passed away from 3 year battle with Cancer so during that time also development was staggered (as you may well expect), and ourselves now having taken over have had the huge task to go through old code and refresh. That is also why new products have come to light as they have been easier projects to start and push. We have to continue as a business and releasing new products, right?

We look forward to releasing updates such as you may have seen also recent with BBE Sonic Sweet (done through our new framework).

Best regards,
