"Error #1 Something went wrong" in Spitfire instrument




  • Scott Mason

    It's working now; it appears that after the initial problems, my pro tools session became corrupt. It is running without problems in a new session. Cheers!

  • Jeremiah Lyles

    I have reinstalled my version of Studio One thereafter, I reinstalled the Spitfire sounds but this did not fix the audio problem.

  • Eldar Ibrahimovic

    I tried everything posted on this thread with no success...
    Will you try to fix the installer and let us know once it's working?

  • andy pawlak

    I fixed it after a right fanny on. If your on windows 10 it assumes you are the computers administrator.
    It places files under the admins user name. So go to users - find the admin name and there will be a spitfire file in there, copy it to your user name. Then make sure All the files are in your vst folder.
    Bingo. It’s fine if you are the admin , but if your not......                that’s the issue.

    Question... anybody has a problem with the 32 bits plugin.... because for me it doesn´t seems to work... I don´t hear any sounds or few chopped sounds, wich is bad for me because I use ableton live at 32 bits

  • Ben

    Hello everyone. We understand the frustration for anyone visiting this page for whom the fix does not work and we're working on more descriptive error messages along with fixes for various problems that people are having.

    However, it's very important for me that we get you working, for your sake but also for ours, so that we understand the problems and can fix them for any other customers with the same issue.

    So I implore, I beg you, if the fix listed doesn't work please click on the chat icon in the bottom right of your screen and talk to us - if the chat icon isn't there and you see a "help" icon with a question mark, click that and submit a ticket.

  • Wes Deckers

    I do get the error message but when I click it away, can load and play the instrument. When I want to load another instrument, the message pops up again but can, again, be clicked away. Perhaps this might 'work' for others as well.
    Windows 7. Nuendo 8.

  • Andy Robinson

    This isn't going to answer everyone, but for those on Windows 10 and are reinstalling LABS, it may help. The "Repair" option did not work for me, but the cog symbol, to the right of the Repair option, gives you 3 options "Repair", "Locate" or "Reset". Using "Reset" reinstalled everything and is now working perfectly. Please note, you will need to do this for each LAB library you have reinstalled. Restart your DAW and fingers crossed. Good luck :-)

  • Jeremiah Lyles

    @Andy Robinson:
    I tried that and though the software was reinstalled, the clicking noise prevailed. Spitfire has informed me that there is an issue in the 32bit version.

  • Andy Robinson

    @Jeremiah Lyles: Sorry to hear it, I'm running 64bit and it solved my issue. Hope they find a solution for you. Best.

  • Jeremiah Lyles

    @Andy Robinson:
    When things like this normally happen, it's usually a programmer error somewhere or the lack of foresight of a programmer.
    The same, or similar can be stated for the Pallette Primary Colors string ensemble. In another forum another member mentioned the software could have run in Kontakt 5.3 or higher with a few changes but they force the end user to use 5.7.3 which results in clicking there as well.
    Unfortunately, that library will not be patched or fixed for 5.3
    Everything's good though. I'll wait for the spitfire fix.

  • carl koto

    After reading a bunch of these posts, I deleted the Spitfire Labs folder on my Sample Library drive and let the Spitfire app install it where it wanted to in the first place.
    I thought about moving it but seeing that all 3 instruments are just 1.6G, I just left it where it was.
    Works perfectly and I love the interface.

  • George Nikoglou

    even after the update the error message is still there..i tried everything it just doesn't work!!!

  • Kirk Kienzle

    I thought these guys were great with their service! The problem with me turned out to be that I had the LABs Folder downloaded in multiple places. Once I trashed all the old folders and then re- installed everything worked fine.

  • Marco Iannello

    Apparently, updating the Spitfire Audio app to the latest 1.0.3 version has resolved the error for me. When adding it as a new instrument track, or opening a previous session, I do not get the error message anymore.

  • jeff williamson

    So every time you prompt a new fix or even an update it creates a new folder. I now have 10 labs folders for two libraries. Should I be deleting the older folders and just keeping the ones that are newest?

  • Joakim Alraek

    I had tried everything, for me what did the trick was something so simple as to right click the shortcut icon for my DAW and choose run as administrator. So for people on windows, just give that a try. Hope it works for others as well.

  • Jacob de Graaf

    If you've got problems with the LABS on Mac, check out Sean Thompson's solution - this one really works, especially if you have your audio libraries installed on external disks.


    Thanks Sean! :)

  • Markus Jansen

    Please have a check in your Download or Install-directory:
    example here:
    D:\Install\Musik\Spitfire-Audio\Spitfire Audio - LABS\Samples\LABS Soft Piano
    Please have a look in the SAMPLES-Subdirectory.
    If there are no files of your favorite instrument, please then have a complete download of LABS Soft Piano again or copy your Sample-Files into this subdirectory.
    Then eventually do your Upgrade via Spitfire Audio Library Manager.
    Then Start your DAW and select your instrument.
    Then it will work.

  • Tom Silvino

    Oswald, As of the first week in August 2018 it appears that the problem with LABS 32 bit on PC in Ableton Live is still there. The plugin loads and receives MIDI control but does not react to it correctly. The 64 bit plugin works perfectly. I wanted to reinstall the 32 bit plugin but couldn't find the installer on my HD or on SF website. Where do I get the LABS Plugin installer from? I can't remember! Anyone!...

  • Des OConnor

    I am running reaper under windows 10 and needed to perform the repair actions. After repairing all instruments I have had no further problems. The soft piano is wonderful...Thank you.

  • Richard Reifenstein

    Had to replace hard drive on Windows 10 64 bit machine. Previously I had no troubles with install and playback of samples. However on new hard drive with fresh install of Windows 10 64 bit, I am running into this error no matter what I try. I've done the Spitfire suggestion of the repair...no joy. I've done the "use locate" suggestion (twice) still no joy. The strange thing is that some of the samples work. I have the soft piano, drums, cello, and string libraries. The drums and cello will still sound regardless of the error. I don't understand what changed from last month to this month.

  • Dan Melius

    Windows 10 here, and LABS isn't loading things anymore. It wasn't working, than a repair and update did the trick, now it's not anymore. Here is the logfile. What's up with the \/ going on there?

  • Paul Bird

    very slick install / update process - impressed!

  • Florian Lengyel

    I'm running ProSonus Studio 4 Professional under Windows 10 and encountered the same error. Repair did not resolve the trouble. Here's what I think went wrong, at least in my case: if you start a LABS instrument download before the previous one completes, you can get the persistent 'Let's fix it' error. Reinstalling one LABS instrument at a time for each installed instrument (I had downloaded four) resolved this trouble.

  • Visegrad Alliance

    Yeah...I'm definitely not spending any dough here. Good luck everyone. F

  • Ben

    Hi guys, if you have problems, please contact our support department at spitfireaudio.com/support and they'll get you up and running.

  • Jeremiah Lyles

    Contacted support, got the software running but then is stopped for some reason.
    I removed the software until the issues are fixed.
    Some of the sounds are great though.

  • Des OConnor

    Its worth persisting. I initially had common problems using Labs but following the corrective instructions which have been issued these problems evaporated and use of the plugins is now smooth and productive.

  • Gino Torres

    Thank you for the post update, Spitfire. Unfortunately, despite the troubleshoot, I am still experiencing the error upon launching the plug-in. To get it to work each time, I repeatedly have to fix the error. Hopefully, though, an updated or alternative solution comes out as I really find Spitfire's Labs instruments beautiful.
