Synthesizer V Pro VST Ableton Crashes

Running Synthesizer V Pro VST in Ableton Live 11 is causing many crashes and lock-ups of Ableton. Especially if you try adding a second voice to Synthesizer V Pro. Windows 10, latest versions of Ableton and Synthesizer V Pro.

Anyone else experiencing similar problems?


UPDATE: Fixed it. I reinstalled Synth V Pro. I accepted the default installation path. Works fine now. Seems Synthesizer V Pro does not like you changing the default directory or disc when installing.

To the developers: don’t let users change the installation path and default drive if it breaks the program.


Great to hear. :grinning:

Please let me know if you have any problems using it with Ableton, once you have had enough time to evaulate it.

Thank you

So far so good but only the first hour of day one since purchase. Will update if any problems.

Thank you very much.

Good luck with it!

@ ArkAngel so far it has worked perfectly in Ableton. No crashes, Tempo syncs well with the DAW. Having the VST is really good, it makes working on a song much easier.

Hi @NewHeart ,

Thank you so much for letting me know. :grinning:

Yes, I agree, using the VST “live” inside your DAW does make it a lot easier.

I used to sync the old version of Synth V up to Ableton via its included network connection.

I am so glad the VST will replace the need to do that.

I will no doubt purchase it myself very soon.

Thanks again, and good luck making that hit record! :crazy_face:

What is the default installationg path for the vst?

On Windows I believe it’s C:\Program Files\Steinberg\VstPlugins\synthesizer-v-plugin64.dll

Thank you! Wow, I would never have expected this to be a problem. Would be really nice to be able to install anywhere, since I’ve already filled a couple of disks with music-related things. Anyhow, thanks.

It was really crashy and stopped playing vocals altogether until I installed to the default path. Well, hopefully it’ll keep working anyway.
