Arranger track pauze not working (9.5.50)


After updating cubase to version 9.5.50, our arranger track no longer want to pauze after playback. When selecting the “Repeat Forever” mode, this works fine. However, the “Pauze after repeats” does not pauze but just goes on to the next section in the current arrangement. We’ve got a show coming up next weekend and I’m already struggling with this for hours without any luck. Anyone got an Idea how to solve this? I’m not sure if this is a bug or something else.

Update: I’ve tried this in a new project and also in that project it is not working. Seems like a bug.

Steps to reproduce:

  • Create new project

  • Add an arranger track

  • Create Event A (bar 1-3)

  • Create Event B (bar 3-5)

  • Add Event A to arrangement

  • Add Event B to arrangement

  • Activate arranger mode

  • Set mode of Event A to ‘pauze after repeats’

  • hit play => playback does NOT pauze afer Event A is finished and continues into Event B

  • set mode of Event A to ‘repeat forever’

  • hit play => playback repeats Event A forever as expected

Sytem information:
OSX 10.15 with Cubase 9.5.50. No VST’s involved.


Hi and welcome,

Yes, I can confirm.

I reported this to Steinberg.

Btw, Cubase 9.5 is not (and will not be) officially compatible with macOS 10.15.

Works fine here (Windows 10, 9.5.50). Probably a Mac only bug?


Interesting, I cannot reproduce it anymore. I’m doing something different way now.
