Well to be fair, I guess it's not "always" Analog Lab's fault, but about half the time it seems. Here's the latest email I received from Ableton support. I'm sure this info could be of use to someone else as well:
thank you for your email!
I'm sorry to hear that the stability issues persist!
The log file lists seven Live runs since you upgraded to the 64-bit version of Live. Six of those seven runs crashed. Three of the six crashes happened while loading the Arturia plug-in Analog Lab. Another crash happened while loading the plug-in Glitch.
But at least some crashes also point to Live itself. This particular crash fingerprint is filed already in our bug tracking system. And our development was able to create a reproduction scenario. Unfortunately, at the moment I can't give out further information when this particular issue will be fixed.
Another thing you can try is to reset Live. This way we make sure that the problem isn't caused by corrupted Live setting files:https://www.ableton.com/en/articles/reset-live/
Please send me the new Live Crash Reports if Live continues to crash on your machine.https://www.ableton.com/en/articles/live-crash-packs/
Thank you and best regards,
Haven't tried resetting Live just yet, but I will later today.
I cannot wait til I can just sit down and write a phreakin' song without my software crashing EVERY 5 MINUTES...
