I had never run across this issue before, but after a search I found at least one example of a Dimension Pro 1.5 preset that can crash Cakewalk (and several other DAWs). This is a necro post from 8 years ago, but apparently still applies. And the fix works for me too! Dim Pro 1.5 X64 Users Please Read (Cakewalk Too...)http://forum.cakewalk.com/FindPost/2075408
The buggy preset is in the factory bank 08-Guitars, "Almost Together".
The setting parameters for the fix to this particular problem are in the Dim Pro MIDI Matrix, "Random Unipolar Depth".
The curious thing is that Dim Pro running this stock preset crashes every DAW on my PC, EXCEPT for Studio One Pro.
That list includes Cakewalk CbB, Ableton Live 10, and Reaper.
One thing I know about PreSonus Studio One is that it does not use MIDI internally. Just speculating here but since this is a MIDI Matrix parameter in the plugin causing issues, perhaps the PreSonus code is immune to this particular bug? I don't know for certain, but it is an interesting observation.
And as far as drum grooves in Dim Pro goes, there may be issues with some of those REX files, but I have removed them all from my PC since I never used them.
