What Does FFmpeg Exit Code -1073741819 Mean?

I'm using FFmpeg 4.2.2 on Windows to mix two audio tracks, however the filter I am using is causing FFmpeg to crash:

ffmpeg -i 1.wav -i 2.wav -filter_complex asplit[a][b];[a]amix[c];[c][b]acrossfade 3.wav

After running the command FFmpeg hangs for a couple of seconds then closes. Using echo %ERRORLEVEL% shows the error code is -1073741819, but I can't seem to find anything on what it means.
