This started happening probably about a week or two ago.
If I use more than two Fuzziplz UnwieldyTracker2's in one project, I get weird clicks, drop outs and such. It's an inconsistent problem (as far as I can tell so far), and I'm not even sure if the more than two thing is a factor (that might just be statistics), so I can't really give an exact description of how to replicate it, but it keeps happening.
I tried re-downloading the machine (from Buzzmachines). Didn't help. I tried installing Buzz on top of itself. Didn't help. Is this something in the latest Buzz build or my computer? Is anyone else having this problem?

I use several instances in every track, haven't noticed anything unusual happening. You are using the newest version of utrk right?

That depends. Where can I find the latest version? I'm using the only version I could find.

Maybe try settings: disable multithreading.

(and check if these lines are there in your gear.xml which is in the buzz/gear folder:

<Machine Name="Fuzzpilz UnwieldyTracker" Multithreading="False"/>
<Machine Name="Fuzzpilz UnwieldyTracker2" Multithreading="False"/>
<Machine Name="UnwieldyTracker" Multithreading="False"/>)

The third one (the third line) is for a version with the note column on the left,
but I think it's not recommended to use it, because it has bugs I think,
and is obsolete. (but I guess it doesn't hurt to have the line there in gear.xml
just in case)

The first/old one can still be used in case you want to be able to use the bmx
in the old buzz 1.2 or load older bmxes.

No such file in that location. There's a gear_defaults.xml, with similar contents. Should I add it to that one?
By the way, I only have UnwieldyTracker 2. I don't have either version of its predecessor.

mutithreading is something that is not compatible with some buzzmachines
(like UTrk)
(look here viewtopic.php?f=2&t=173)

all you have do do is go to settings -> engine and set multithreading to false

and then if the problem stops, then multithreading was the problem.
(you can leave it that way if you don't use that much proccesor power for buzz, afaik)

The solution (in case mutithreading was the problem and you still want to use
mutithreading for most other machines) is to disable mutithreading for the version of UTrk that
you want to use, and this can be done by opening gear_defaults.xml in windows notepad
and save it as gear.xml after editing it.
And add the lines in my previous message to the gear.xml file that you are
going to save.
(so the default one will stay too, untouched, but buzz will use
gear.xml and has gear_defaults.xml as a backup),

And the version that is recommended to use is Fuzzpilz Unwieldytracker2 (2!).
(the one on buzzmachines.com you downloaded)

However, if you want to use the bmxes in old buzz 1.2 too or want to have compatibility with
older songs, you can have the other version(s) in your gear/generators folder as well.
(and disable multithreading for them too, by editing gear.xml)

(and now I hope it was just the multithreading thing that is your problem :) )

in short :lol:

open gear_defaults.xml with windows notepad and
add "2" after the word Fuzzpilz UnwieldyTracker,
and save as gear.xml.

(maybe I shouldn't use that many words to say something ;) )

except you shouldn't use gear_defaults.xml because next time you install / update buzz it'll be overwritten again. so yeah, make a copy gear.xml and edit that.
