Default [macOS] crash: "too many open files"

When I'm trying to open one of my projects where I made a lot of drum slip editing, I get the following crash dump:

Exception Type:        EXC_CRASH (SIGABRT)
Exception Codes:       0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000
Exception Note:        EXC_CORPSE_NOTIFY

Application Specific Information:
terminating with uncaught exception of type std::__1::system_error: random_device failed to open /dev/urandom: Too many open files
abort() called
Increasing the file limit works as a workaround:
sudo launchctl limit maxfiles 64000 524288
I don't know if there is something that can be done about that from the application, but maybe the error handling can be improved.
