I upgraded from 4 Full to 7.5 recently and did a new install with no other Cubase elements on my system.
At first I loved the new design and features.
Then I started my first project. Everything worked great until I went to export a demo of the track as an mp3. The project (with 1 stereo audio track and 2 minor samples) froze. The load on my system was minimal, with little ram or multi-core cpu being used.
Rebooting my laptop I reset the Cubase preferences on startup (alt+sht+ctrl) and loaded up my project to try it again. It plainly refuses to load, crashing early into the load-bar process and cubase then is “not responding” in task manager (windows pro 64bit 7).
There were no error messages so I can’t send the cause to Steinberg. All in all, I’m pretty unhappy. Cubase 4 was a bit buggy, but it always worked. I now have a track that is dead. I perhaps should have incrementally saved, but I had auto-save on.
Obviously there is no way to help me, but in the future how can I go about getting a log? I’ve never had to bother finding the errors to report in my previous years use with C4.
