Quick question: when fast-forwarding DOSBox while using SCVA, midiplayer will often freeze and the process needs to be killed. Is this an SCVA issue?
I do not know what you mean by 'fast-forwarding DOSBox' but you can test easily if your problem is SC-VA related or not: Stop SC-VA and use the BassMidi soundfont output under the same conditions and notice if the same problem happens or not. If it's not happening then you can also narrow down the potential causes by testing if the problem is related to BASS_VST in general or not: That is try another VSTi plugin. The built-in OPL3 GM VSTi is a good candidate since it does not require any further configuration for testing (unlike Munt VSTi).
BTW, VST(i) plugins are in-process simple dynamic libraries so yes, a problem in the plugin can cause the whole process to freeze/crash.
