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.
