Help troubleshooting specific patch crashing VCV rack

Hey everyone,

I’ve been using VCV rack for a little while now and I really love it. I have a patch I have been working with recently that I am quite happy with. The problem is that recently it will not open. I added an LFO module to the patch, it was working, then VCV crashed. Now it crashes whenever I open that patch. Any ideas? I would attach the patch but I’m a new user and cannot attach files. Am I just screwed here? I don’t want to lose my progress on this patch.


patches - autosave.vcv for example - are just text files (json to be exact), you can open them with a text editor, also you could paste it here as any message, or even better, by using `` around it

so it will be shown like this

usually you can delete individual modules by hand, if the file itself isnt corrupted.

Great, that fixed the issue, I manually removed the LFO module. Good thing those webdev classes in college counted for something :slight_smile:

Just curious … what LFO was causing this ?

I wouldn’t assume it’s the cause. Could very well be adding that LFO just happened to trigger a crash in some other module. I’ve seen plenty of cases here where it was not obvious which module was the culprit.

You are right, but when you’re bughunting you have to start somewhere :smiley:

for sure. crash dump would be useful… Would “be nice” if VCV could upload all crash dumps and send them to devs, like microsoft used to do :wink:



if you have the time, I am sure that the developer of that LFO would find it useful if you’d report the bug for them in one way or another.

It was the Nozori_84_LFO version 1.1.7. I’d be happy to submit a bug report if possible. Where are those logs placed?

you can find contact info for modules in the library, afaik nozoid is not active on this forum, but they have a github repo and email link here

i’m still betting it’s someone else…

I think most of the Nozoïd modules need 96khz Bitrate. Maybe that is the problem?

It very well might be but as @Yeager said, you have to start somewhere.
