[BUG] Beatbox sample preview crash

I've had a few lockups/crashes with the release version of C3 on my HTC One. It locked up one time when I tried loading my caustic community jam track and I had to force quit it. I submitted a report for that one and the phenomenon has not been repeated.

The more serious one which I can repeat is C3 crashing when previewing samples from the beatbox. It seems to be to do with trying to preview a sample when one is already being previewed. I was trying to do this with some breakbeat samples when auto preview was enabled.

It doesn't happen with all samples, but I can replicate it every time if I enable auto preview, go to the beatbox presets folder->606 and tap through the samples really quickly, so hopefully others can confirm without needing my sample library!

NOTE: I tried the same thing with the PCM and it did not crash.

yeah, I manged to get it on my HTC one too. I'll see if I can trap it either on iOS or windows where I have a real debugger.

This happened to me somewhat

This happened to me somewhat often on Caustic 2.1 in BeatBox preview as well as PCMSynth preview... not nearly as often in Caustic 3, though.

well, this is to do with the new preset open in the beatbox, which wasn't in 2.1

Ah, I actually meant sample

Ah, I actually meant sample previews... I would preview loops and it would hang, then close.

My Caustic 2 had this same

My Caustic 2 had this same problem. If I tried loading a preset I made in Beatbox then Caustic would freeze and then shut down. The annoying part was that if I hadn't saved the whole file, it would dissapear and I had to start all over again if I loaded the wrong preset. However updating to CCaustic 3 removed this issue for me

Frequent saving while you're

Frequent saving while you're working will help save some headaches... I've learned that lesson the hard way myself before...

Sometimes I get a new idea

Sometimes I get a new idea and forget to save. C2 would do the exact same thing evalon described. Thank fuck C3 rarely loses my progress the few times it still happens.
