(Linux) SynthV Studio crashes after loading a voicebank

I’ve installed SynthV Studio on Linux (because it doesn’t support Windows 7 rip), only to run to a problem–the software crashes the moment after I load a voicebank. It gives me this error saying Illegal instruction (core dumped)

I also ran it under gdb, so it might be of some help.

(gdb) run

I’d like to hear back, thank you!

Which distro are you using? AFAIK Synthesizer V requires Ubuntu 16.04 or later. I’m not sure about other distros like Fedora or Arch etc. but the newer the better chance SynthV will run

Edit: found a tweet from developers stated about crashing with 3rd gen Intel processors. Check your SynthV version and update it if it’s still in 1.1.0

Double-checked, on Ubuntu 18.04 and at 1.1.1. Found out the problem being only the AI voices, still not sure what’s going on.

Maybe this’ll help better:

I think the issue is the AVX2 instructions, which are used in AI-only engine.
