I can't seem to get any cassette selection via internal menu to crash the UI (or make it freeze) using "spectrum" machine.
Can you make sure there isn't some .cfg or .ini setting that may be interfering or, if you can, install a fresh 0.226 and see if the same thing happens?
Anyone else have it happen?

Deleted "cfg/spectrum.cfg" and it works now, thanks.
It looks like "<device instance="cassette" directory=" was set to a folder which didn't exist anymore.
