I´ve noticed a strange issue today with the Audio file player. When I open my gigfile it tells me the Audio file player is missing or disabled.
When I try to move from there (wiring view) to setlist view to a Song using audio file player, GP will instantly crash. (I can upload the crash dump if it helps)
But when I open a rackspace using Audio file player it will open normally and work. And after using a rackspace with audio file player I can move to Setlist view and open the same Song without crashing GP!?
I´m on GP 4.5.8 in Rosetta mode on a M2 Macbook MacOS Ventura 13.0
Ok, I got the message but the Audio File Player exists.
Then I cleared the audio file player lanes - as I do not have the referenced audio files - and saved the gig and after reload the message did not occur anymore.
I think I found the root cause.
Turn that button “OPEN PLAYER” off, save the gig and reload the gig.
At least I do not get the chameleon message on Mac.
Seems that when the player should be opened automatically and some files are missing, then the chameleon is shown.
Yes, by re-saving the file I was able to get rid of the chameleon message, but GP still crashes when I load the Gig direct to Setlist View, (First Song: Get up also has the Audioplayer in use) or when I load the Gig to wiring view and switch immediately to Setlist view as soon as it´s loaded.
When I load any other rackspace first in wiring view, then I´m able to go to Setlist view without a crash.
To be exact, this has nothing to do with missing audio files.
Seems when using predictive load and open automatically the pluging then the chameleon message appears.
When predictive load is disabled the chameleon message does not appear.
When I open the Gig in native M1 mode, the chameleon message still appears, but it doesn´t seem to crash, which is good news.
So it´s another reason to get rid of the few plugins that don´t support M1 natively yet.
