Adding a VST/i whilst playing the project is a gamble!

Easy solution = press stop, save project, add vst (or vsti), hope cubase doesnt crash.

Proper solution = steinberg fixes issue allowing any vst to be added at any point in the track while playing without cubase crashing


1 Play project with 1-4 instruments and midi data.
2 Add vst effect to any of the instruments
3 “cubase has stopped working”

(frequency of bug estimated at 1 in 6 times)


Can you write down a list of the VSTi that you have used to test this?
Are any of those VSTi from Steinberg, E.g. HALion 5, HALion Sonic?
What VST effects have you been adding?

Best regards,

Hey thanks for quick repsonse, i need to do more testing but to be honest i dont think steinberg plugins cause this bug. it has happened with:

voxengo deft compressor vst
jupiter vsti,
waves kramer master tape vst

I will test more and report back



Then, please make sure that you have the latest version installed for those plug-ins and remove them one by one from the project, until you find the one that is causing Cubase to crash.

Best regards,
