Importing Apple Lossless (ALAC) files downloaded from bandcamp consistently crashes Live
Just wanted to know if anyone else has had this issue—I wrote to Ableton support about it a few months ago and never heard back, I wrote to them again just now…
I buy a lot of music from bandcamp, mostly in Apple Lossless format. Importing these files straight from bandcamp 100% CONSISTENTLY crashes Ableton entirely. It starts analysing, gets to the end of the waveform, and then bam, Live quits unexpectedly. Not all Apple Lossless files do this, e.g. files converted from FLAC to Apple Lossless (using XLD) don't have this issue.
I'm on Yosemite, rMBP (2012 model), Live 9.1.9, etc etc…
Anyone else put in a bug report for this?
