More information

Does it crash it every time? Is it any 4kb text file, or one in particular?

I just fed it 4k of lorem ipsum, and it performed fine. 600 words, 7 paragraphs, 4096 bytes.

Output was obtained by both String With File and Shell Command Patch "cat ipsum4kCrashText.txt" stuff. Neither seemed to crash.

Any other hints about what was going on? (9 threads seems like a non-trivial use :)

Reproduced it

Ok, got it to happen too. Mine had a different backtrace though:

Thread 2 Crashed: 0 ...thesis.MacinTalkSynthesizer 0x15db00a9 MEOWReader::MEOWReader[in-charge](void const*, char) + 29 1 ...thesis.MacinTalkSynthesizer 0x15d9264c MTBEPhraseProcessor::Create(VoiceDescription const&, void const*, MTBEPh raseParam const&) + 86 2 ...thesis.MacinTalkSynthesizer 0x15d8dc31 MT3BEngineTask::ParseNextPhrase(void) + 1083 3 ...thesis.MacinTalkSynthesizer 0x15d95062 MTBEWorker::WorkLoop(MTBEWorker) + 510 4 ...thesis.MacinTalkSynthesizer 0x15d950bd MTBEWorkerStartMPTask + 17 5 ...ple.CoreServices.CarbonCore 0x903ddc6c PrivateMPEntryPoint + 51 6 libSystem.B.dylib 0x90024227 _pthread_body + 84

As a side note, it looks like the speech engine spawns many threads, so 9 isn't really too crazy.

Going to investigate this more, thanks for noticing it. If you find a way to trigger it more dependably, please clue me in:)

further inspection

Ok, I've reproduced it without needing a huge text corpus. Simply hook up an LFO to the trigger, and put in 1 word of text. eventually (after 5-10 minutes?) it'll crash.

For me, the backtrace is always

Thread 2 Crashed: 0 ...thesis.MacinTalkSynthesizer 0x162320a9 MEOWReader::MEOWReader[in-charge](void const*, char) + 29 1 ...thesis.MacinTalkSynthesizer 0x1621464c MTBEPhraseProcessor::Create(VoiceDescription const&, void const*, MTBEPhraseParam const&) + 86 2 ...thesis.MacinTalkSynthesizer 0x1620fc31 MT3BEngineTask::ParseNextPhrase(void) + 1083 3 ...thesis.MacinTalkSynthesizer 0x16217062 MTBEWorker::WorkLoop(MTBEWorker) + 510 4 ...thesis.MacinTalkSynthesizer 0x162170bd MTBEWorkerStartMPTask + 17 5 ...ple.CoreServices.CarbonCore 0x903ddc6c PrivateMPEntryPoint + 51 6 libSystem.B.dylib 0x90024227 _pthread_body + 84

which is not where mrphoton's was. Never the less, it's in a similar location.

Watching the memory usage as its running, and it seems to continually increase. This indicates a memory leak of some kind. Still checking this out.

in the system log, the message "Speech Synthesis can't map voice file (12)" always happens when setVoice is called, and it crashes immediately afterwards. The return value for setVoice does not indicate a failure, which is troubling.

Got it!

Ok, found out the problem! NSSpeechSynthesizer is a leaky class, meaning creating and destroying the class repeatedly eventually exhausts memory and causes weird problems. I've worked around this in the development branch, expect a 0.3 release sometime in the next 48 hours to resolve this publicly. Thank you mrphoton for noting this bug :)

Fixed in v0.3

The above should be fixed with v0.3, released today --- http://kineme.net/QuartzComposerPatches/SpeechSynthesisPatch/0.3
