Still having export issues.
( setting buffer size to 512 seems to help a bit though.

I wonder if buying something like this could help ?
The one I am using is rather old, and if has no surge protection. ... ker-620459
Interesting. Is your computer running slowly, with other programs?
If so, lets hope it's not the computers PSU (Power Supply Unit), going bad.
Because sometimes when PSU's are going bad, it can cause things to slow down
and even, slow down rendering. :P
Pc seems fine, last render I did, was while I had multiple program open, and that render was fine.
( after removing and replacing that one vst for synth 1 )

Pc is also stable, so I don't think there is any hardware issue's .

I might do some test, but this one vst, om2 does not seem to play nice when I export the track.

During playback in lmms only this vst sometimes goes out of sync too. I think that's another indication, this vst does not work 100% right, at least not for me on Linux.

Its a shame because it sounds so nice.

I think you nailed it! Especially since you wrote that its using samples! Then we are right back to the sample-usage, and if you remember, i have rambled on about how artefacts happen if samples are initiated 'out-of-sweetspot(s)' -so when you 'swing' the output, its likely initiating in a out-of position, and you get your artefact only guessing :p
My first suspect were the samples too, but I noticed crackling and stutter when no samples were played, in the audio file processor.

I had already tried a few thing, but then you asked: What are you doing different this time ?

Then I almost instantly thought of that one vst. All other synth and vst, I have used before and never gave me any trouble.
( I had also used samples before without any issues )

So you did put me on the right track. :)

Might do some test with a new project and om2, but for now two zynaddsubfx are playing the bassline.

Good detective works. Well done Holmes :D

Just did another export, 6min 57.

Instead of two om2 now 2 zynaddsubfx are playing the bass line.

Not one crack or stutter :)

( except of course the crackling in the samples, clearly recorded from vinyl )

Now maybe a test with om2 in a new project.
The plot thickens. Did another test.

I made something, 1 min 20 long.

bass line , kick and hi hat. Bass Line is om2. ( just inserted the vst, and changed nothing )
Exported the track and no problem at all. :o
I think I am done.

No OM2 any more, I used zynaddsubfx for the bassline.

Think I will release in a few days. :)
In a few days I said....

Mixing wise I am breaking records. Never before I spend so much time on mixing a track.

Probably doing it right this time, not mixing too long, then leave it until at least the next day.

Latest small step forward, a bass booster on Kraze, You want to start this party right ?

Might be getting there finally, last two days mostly been turning down some instrument volumes.
Yeah, mixing does take up, alot of time sometimes.
