Wim,
I suspect that you are trying to use the default desk. This is corrupted in v10 as well.
Try the following:
Project > New (Ctrl+N)
In the wizard choose DSD Project
Choose the sample rate you want to use (There is no SRC in a DSD project and you can't mix DSD64/DSD128/DSD256)
Setup your workspace (Or not if creating a template) > Next
Choose "Use Mixer Wizard" > Finish
In Mixer wizard choose > Next
In Configuration Wizard enter the number of channels in multiples of 8 (8/16/24) If you choose multiples of 8 you get a multichannel bus. If you choose an odd number you get a ton of mono busses that take up the whole screen. (Just choose 8...) > Next
Choose "Connect automatically as many inputs and outputs as possible" > Finish (If you skip this step you will get the corrupt mixer message!)
You should now have an empty 8 channel DSD project. Before saving or mounting any media, create a template of this. The template will work correctly.
Also remember, you can't change the DSD rate once you create the project.
Welcome to the brave new world of pure DSD.
All the best,

Hi Mark,

thnx, yes that works out OK.
But it creates 8 mono_channels, I can drop my DSF file there, all plays back nice, but is there any option/trick to get stereo_channels ? or is that NON_DSD )))

Wim,
The DSD session is a player recorder only. Fixed routing and no changes to level or processing. If you make an edit it will click. Think of it like a tape machine.

All the best,
