Default Crash just after opening any vsti

So im experimenting with moving over to mac, and since updating my native instruments plugins I'm having some irritating crashes. Ive tried opening them standalone, removing the database files and the usual fixes i can find online, however i get a crash with ANY instrument...within seconds of opening.

Ive included some of the crash report below, i think this is the relevant stuff but i can post all of it if required:

I miss the thread 0 part in your crash log.
Thats the thread that seems to crash.

Can you maybe post that part ?

I thought i might have fixed it, i wasn't (and still aren't) super familiar with how OS X structures things...when i first got this macbook i immediately put a bootcamp partition on it (works fine) and i installed a few things on the mac side with a view to eventually moving over.

That first initial mac install got a little messy with other day to day stuff so i made a strictly audio user profile, not realising that a lot of what was installed on the original profile still shows up on the new one.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling as much as i could find, and i believe that reaper was searching other file locations for plugins on the original user profile as well as the audio one. I removed those locations, making sure it was only looking in locations on the audio profile, cleared the cache and rescanned and it seemed to come good, However i just tried installing a new plugin (HY-SEQ, a free step sequencer that works fine in windows), and i am back to it crashing every time i load an instrument. Ive put that new crash report below:

Seems Fabfilter Pro Q plugin is the culprit for Reaper crash.

- Are you sure you have updated that plugin to the latest version ?
- Are you sure you have authorized that plugin correctly ?

- I see you are running OSX 10.10.1
Any reason why not have updated to latest ? (OSX 10.10.5).
I would recommend you do that.
After this OSX update, run "Disk Utility"
This is a program inside folder Applications > Utility
In Disk Utility, check "repair diskpermissions" and let it do its thing for a few
minutes.

Oh pro-q? thats interesting!!!

Yes as far as i am aware (although now i will double check) it is fully authorised and up to date (IIRC they moved on to pro-q 2 which i cant afford and this is the latest version of pro-q 1).

I have not updated the OS yet as i was nervous about it messing up my bootcamp partition, my edirol UA-25 does not have supported drivers for the newer versions and there seems to be another new version on its way soon from what i have read.

I will do some more investigating, thank you so much for your advice, i never thought pro-q would be causing this, the fabfilter stuff is usually so problem free.

Thanks again!

I use all Fabfilter plugins and love them. Never got any issues with them BUT I run Sierra.

I had issues with some other plugins, and to find which one was wrong, a load my session without FX and reload them one by one.

After some further reading i might have to either use something else besides pro-q or keep using windows. Upgrading to sierra looks problematic as my sound card definitely isnt supported, and i know everything works with win 7. It sucks a bit, there are certain aspects of working in mac that i think are far smoother, even some plugins work better...drumatic 4 for example....loading sounds is quite laggy in win but no issues on mac... but so far ive had far fewer problems using windows overall. I dont have any issues with Pro-L or Pro-MB on mac..i suspect maybe because Pro-L is an older product?

Maybe it's the reason. and maybe you could try something else.

Few weeks ago, when I left Logic for Reaper, I had issues with Breverb 2 and QL Space. Each time I loaded those 2 plugins Reaper crashed.

When I installed the plugins, I install all versions, VST, AU & AAX.

Because I use AU most of the time, I delete the VST version, and now everything's all right.

Then If you have both version install in your "Audio - Plugins" folder, try to remove the VST version, and load the AU Pro-Q ?

No more idea :-(
