Ref to Engine Prime 1.6 Crashes Analyzing Mass Files!? Crashing issues.
After digging in the Mac Terminal, it looks like Engine Prime 1.6.x has a serious memory leak bug while importing and analyzing tracks. I used the HTOP command under Home Brew and found that EP ■■■■■ all the memory down to zero then crashes, aka quits without any error or warning.
The temporary workaround I added a root purge command to ‘Launchd’ automation which runs every 60 seconds. Unfortunately, this only works for each import and often requires a restart of EP for every import session.
In a nutshell, Denon needs to either fix the memory leak bug or start from the ground up - But knowing how slow they are to implement any fixes or new features, I’m guessing we are stuck with this pretty poor application.
It’s a shame as it shows some real potential if they can get the basics working first.
