    Did you send a crash report ? If MadMapper doesn't come to the point of detecting crash logs, can you send it manually ?
    They are be located in ~/Library/Logs/DiagnosticReports/ (Finder / Cmd+SHIFT+G / Paste "~/Library/Logs/DiagnosticReports/" / Enter)
    Thanks !

    I've just successfully tested on the exact same Mac as yours, also running macOS 10.14.6.

    Could you copy & paste your crashlog so we can fix the problem?

    Eventually we'd like to have USB-audio support in miniMAD Video as well, but we don't have any specific date for that yet.
