    Hi, Andy. You need to enable website storage in your Flash player. You can either do it in the global options or in site specific options.

    1. https://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager07.html
    2. Find soniccharge.com in the list and select it
    3. Set to "Always allow"

    Did you enable website storage globally or just for our site? Sounds odd it only worked one time, once the setting is changed, it should allow us to save data. Do you by any chance have any plug-ins or blockers in Safari that could prevent Patternarium from saving data?

    Hi Fredrik,
    I can't think of a better Sunday activity or pass-time in the studio then to make it through the next gen. But I've had similar issues of the Patternarium not reloading after a preset save, not loading after a refresh page, and the like. It just spins and hangs...and the "lights off" with a black screen

    Flash setting by default is to accept website storage, and specifically indicated for sonniccharge. Could it be a subdomain issue? Enabled it for the direct page and still no go. A safari issue? I think I also tried this on Firefox. Just figured I'd reach out, seeing as the Gen24 announcement just arrived in my email. I let it slide when I experienced the same problem with the previous generation, thinking updates would come out and the problem would turn around, or that I was just not reading the fix carefully enough. But still no such luck...

    thank you for your response in the .mtpreset spotlight discussion, btw. Appreciate how long that took to chase down, and it really makes a difference

    Hey, does it load the flash player but not the patterns?

    if you pull up the network tab in the Web Inspector in Safari.

    Then try browsing through the patterns and you should see your flash player trying to load the resources through your safari browser. You might get a hint there on why the resources do not load correctly.

    You're a fast draw!
    I can't even get the page to force reload. Web inspector is a blank page. Hold tight and I'll quit safari entirely. Wanted to mention that I have no extensions running, and that I do have the latest flash player, as well as Java, Jazz, and Zoom launcher, all of which are now set to "on" for soniccharge.com but were set to "ask" previously and did not come into play. Still could be an issue though...

    I'll add a screenshot of the debugger Tab as well if it ever loads...

    My process is to down vote with the "-" when I pass on a preset and let Patternarium cue the next pattern for playback. Then for ones I like, I hit "S" to save to an already-designated folder, Return to accept, then Shift+"=" for the plus symbol.

    Either the Save is still happening in the background, despite the save window clearing the screen and file being saved. But it's by the time I hit the "+" that the whole thing hangs, and the refresh hangs as well.

    I do not have an application shortcut assigned to the "+"

    Odd. As you can see on the network inspector it loads the current pattern and then the next one as a pre-cache so skipping to the next goes faster. You can see by the names which one it loads. When you press the + and it hangs, does it load anything at that point?

    Save should be fast as the data is already loaded it just need to save it from memory.

    Have you narrowed it down to exactly when it happens? Like if you only browse with next, does it work? If you up or down vote only, does it work? Is it always after a save it hangs or after a number of saves?

    Hi all,
    I'm encountering exactly the same problem as described by braduro. On Safari 10.1.2. with updated Flashplayer. Patternarium used to work perfectly on an older version of Safari (can't remember which, but maybe from six months ago).
    I believe the only thing that causes the freeze is the "save" procedure, no matter if I use a mouse click or the keyboard shortcut. Only thing that helps then is closing the tab and restarting Safari.

    I'm going to try above mentioned ideas and also if maybe the "copy" procedure works for me.

    Hey, I'm taking the opportunity: Your software is amazing!!! (I owe Microtonic, Permut8 and Echobode) - so inspiring and joyful to work with!

    Hi Lidstrom,
    To answer your question, the Patternarium hung just as soon as I pressed the return key on the Save window on the first save. It's hard to say, because it might have already been hanging by the time the pop-up window appeared. Other thing I can tell you is when I come back to the Patternarium after a restart or a month later, it'll typically include the file I just saved. So it's not registering my up/down vote before it hangs. Maybe it'll work now that the preset filetypes are recognized by my mac? Nope, just checked it again. It's otherwise still an issue.
