ASAnnotation: Communication error between Audiosculpt and the kernel SuperVP

Dear all,

Is the software ASAnnotation still supported? I downloaded ASAnnotation 1.0, and tried to do a fundamental frequency analysis of a single file. When I first opened the software I could open the file and do the analysis (with the default settings), but briefly after that action the software crashed. Since then I cannot do a fundamental frequency analysis anymore, nor any other analysis and instead always get the error message “Communication error between Audiosculpt and the kernel SuperVP”.

I already tried killing all the supervp processes running in the background (a new one is started whenever I tried to do any analysis), and I also tried a restart. Neither did help. After a restart I may instead get the error message “Fundamental Frequency Analysis unexpectedly quit”, but only once, then I get the above-mentioned error again. I am using Macbook Pro (Retina 15-inch, Late 2013) running OS X 10.9.5.

Thanks a lot for any advice!

Best wishes,

Possibly related information: I localised the supervp commandline application within the ASAnnotation. When I call that directly at the commandline, regardless of parameters I always get “no ethernet interfaceProtectLibV7 Error: 1038”. Older forum net posts suggest this indcates a protection code error (http://forumnet.ircam.fr/fr/user-groups/modalys/forum/topic/protectlibv7-error-1038/). Indeed, I did not register any software, because ASAnnotation is free software…



Hi Torsten,

Sorry, but we do not support ASAnnotation anymore. The communication between the gui and the kernels is broken since the Mac OS systems >= 10.8. So if you want to use it again, you need an older system…

All features are now concentrated under the same flagship, AudioSculpt 3, which support the recent mac operating systems, all the annotation features, and much more.

Best regards,

you need an older system…
Thank you!
