I am completely unable to use Vital (after I think an update broke it) or open any old project files I had that used Vital, because there’s a bug that crashes the entire DAW. I’m able to use the LV2 version for a few minutes before parts of it turn black and it crashes, which either means the crash is GUI-related or that LV2 has always been for people who put up with using only open software no matter how buggy it gets.
I am using
vital-synth 1.0.8-1 from the AUR.
Edit: now Surge XT crashes, that makes me think it might be a REAPER problem.
