I have been having problems with plugins failing to load on boot up among other things. The biggest problem is trying to create a plug in chain. If I create a chain and then open a plugin to view its parameters, play back stutters, and runs slow and often crashes requiring a reboot. It appears the implementation of VST 3 and 64 bit processing has rendered this software almost unusable to me. I have reinstalled Sound forge 11 and the same plugins, in 32 bit form, work perfectly. I feel as if I have wasted the upgrade money I spent. This is not a random event. It happens every time I use the program and is easily duplicated. I would be happy to co-operate with Magix so they can fix this but it should happen sooner rather than later. Its one thing when users requests take time to get implemented but, IMHO, Sound forge 12 should never have been released running the way it does. For what its worth, this is not a hardware issue. I get exactly the same response on 2 different machines running Windows 10 Pro and Windows 10 home respectfully. Please tell me there is a fix on the NEAR horizon.
