Last week I had several gigs during a conference. Daily one in the morning and one in the evening. Unfortunatelly Cantabile twice stopped working at the beginning of the show that week and I can’t figure out why. I did find a fix, that I want to share, and I’m hoping to get more insight in what causes this.
In both cases Cantabile starts normal, without any messages. I can see it’s receiving midi and producing audio streams from Cantabile’s master output rack. Still its not producing any sound. My Motu 624 audio interface does work, but it’s not receiving audio from Cantabile. Resetting and rebooting doesn’t help.
When I start Cantabile with a different config label ( I use multi-config) everything works fine. So I decided to restore 4 files : plugins.json, plugins.user.json, settings.json and Background Rack.cantabile from a different config and change it to the correct settings. This worked, problem solved… but still: what is happening here?
I didn’t make a backup of the 4 replaced files. wish I did, but hey, the show must go on, the heat of the moment etc…
