Logix Pro X crashes instantly upon opening Xpand!2

I can insert the Xpand!2 plugin into a channel without a problem, and the default patch (a pad it seems) plays no problem. However as soon as I try to open the Xpand!2 plugin interface (in order to choose a different sound) Logic Pro X crashes. Worse yet, since Logic defaults to opening the last file worked on, Logic Pro X will no longer open without crashing.

I just bought Xpand!2 this evening, but I don't feel I am off to a very good start.
Any help would be appreciated.
thanks

  • Hello,

    Thanks for posting. Can you please provide me with your full system specs? If you open a new session does Logic crash? Does this happen in another DAW?

  • Logic Pro 10.2.4

    OSX Yosemite 10.10.5
    MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Early 2015)
    3.1 GHz Intel Core i7
    16 GB 1867 MHz DDR3

    When I open a new logic session it works fine. I can add and use Audio Tracks, Midi Tracks, Virtual Instrument Tracks, etc no problem. I can even place the Xpand!2 plugin on one of the virtual instrument tracks and play it with my midi keyboard. As soon as I open the Xpand!2 plugin in order to change the selected sound logic hard crashes. When I try to reopen logic, since the default setting is to reopen the last working file, it tried to reopen the Xpand!2 plugin interface and again crashes the program. I must start again with a new file to prevent it from crashing.

    I don't have any other DAWs to try this out on.

    I hope that helps.
    thanks

  • Thanks for the additional information, Michael. I would recommend testing this in another host DAW. This will help to isolate if the issue is stemming from the plugin itself or your DAW. Check out the link below to download a trial for Ableton Live, which can be used for testing purposes:


    In addition to testing in another DAW, I would recommend dragging the plugin out of your Audio folder, launching and rescanning, closing Logic, moving the plugin back into the folder and scanning again. If you experience crashing in Logic but not in Ableton, this would indicate a problem within Logic, which will need to be reinstalled. If Xpand!2 crashes in both hosts, then you will need to reinstall the software. 

    Let me know how this goes.
