Hm, the only thing that comes to mind is that upon loading, it excpects an audio configuration that’s not there (device, sample rate, buffer settings) and hard crashes. Always tough to guess bluescreens because hardware failure is sometimes possible.
I never followed up with that problem as it runs fine in all my DAWs. Cubase 12 is still fantastic with it even though there is technically no support for vst2. And, BFD3 is my last vsti that has to be updated to vst3.
I just don’t open BFD3 in stand alone.
I will however, try it again on the next major update to see if the problem is sorted.
I always go with the saying if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. But in this case it is broke in stand alone and the only way to avoid blue screen is just don’t open it in stand alone.
