Hi,

Sorry about that.

Could you check if your computer supports AVX ?
See section 2.3 of Spat5-ReleaseNotes.pdf :
You can check the extensions supported by your hardware by typing the following command in a Terminal: “sysctl -a | grep hw.optional” (a value of “1” indicates that the extension is supported; “0” is not supported). Spat 5.x requires AVX 1.0 extension (hw.optional.avx1_0).

Does the crash occur with all spat objects ?

Hi T.,
after checking AVX, my MacBook Pro (mid 2010) is not supporting AVX1.0, too bad.
Thanks for your help, T.

All the Best

Sorry about that. AVX is required since v5.0.9.
Previous versions should run on our laptop.
