Pedalboard without screenshot

I have been having issues the past few days with my Mod Duo X. Sometimes I save a pedalboard and it’s fine, other times, I get the message that it saved, but when I load it something goes wrong and it doesn’t work. I had one where once I went to the second page of assigned parameters on the hardware, I saw none, and then every page was blank - no parameters.

I have noticed that when I go to my list of pedalboards in the browser, some do not have a screenshot, but have the purple zero. What specifically does that mean? The pedalboard just doesn’t have a screenshot? or it is broken?

All pedalboards I save look like this (no screenshot) so I’m interested as well. Dwarf 1.12.0.2934-RC3

I caught this a few times, there are some fixes for the v1.12 series coming.

This happens to me from time to time. Usually, saving again and waiting for the image to generate usually works. However, I only experience this on a 1-at-a-time basis, and not all the pedalboards at once.

just to confirm - you are saying that the lack of screenshot is not an indication that there is anything wrong with the pedalboard, other than a screenshot not being generated?

In my case, it seems like pedalboards which are broken, also don’t get screenshots but this may just be coincidence.

It is a combination of many factors.

What I have seen lately is that there can be a plugin instance referenced on the pedalboard that is not actually used, but didnt get fully removed properly. Can happen if, for example, loading the template/new pedalboard that includes a plugin that was removed (which makes it spread to all saved pedalboards) or if something crashed during add/remove plugin action and then the pedalboard page was reloaded.

Maybe happens in more cases, but I have seen these 2 as triggers of this issue.

Got a new one today, the gear is spinning:

p.s. I have never had a screenshot generated on this dwarf, even when running older firmware.

After reboot, still spinning!

Are you saying that if you have a reverb sitting in the pedalboard, but not wired to anything, that this will cause an issue? Because I do that all the time. When I’m working on complex pedalboards, I will have reverb settings I want to keep, but need to move things around, so a few plug-ins sit ‘in waiting’ without being wired to anything, but with the settings I want for each.

No, I am saying there are some occasions where unexpected things happen, which trigger other unexpected things. And when saving that pedalboard, any based on it will have that as part of them.
