I have GP installed with the same-ish plugins on at 2017 Windows 10 PC, and on a “mid-2012” MacBook Pro which is running macOS Mojave (10.14.6)
The MacBook is part of my onstage rig – I’ve been using it in live shows with (formerly Propellerhead) Reason since 2012 with no issues to speak of. I just used the Reason DAW and fiddled with a lot of buttons/knobs during the show to get the sounds I needed
I recently moved to GP for my live setup, because it’s awesome! No more fiddling with controls! But I’m finding that on my MacBook, Reason crashes GP constantly (SIGSEGV), Garritan CFX sometimes freezes GP where I need to force-quit it, and there are a few other plugins with varying degrees of problems on my MacBook.
What’s super interesting to me is that the exact same gig file, opened on my Windows system, works perfectly! It’s snappy and stable! On Windows, I can’t reproduce any of the issues that I have on macOS.
At this point, gentle reader, you might be wondering what my question is … and I’m not 100% sure, but I’m sorta curious to get a “room read” on whether I should even expect to have a smooth experience on my old MacBook at this point, or if I should just abandon ship and just get a Windows laptop to use onstage?
Side-note: I do have a ticket opened with Reason Studios right now…
