Cubase 11.0.40 Crash when i insert EQ MP from Softube. After Restart cubase, and rename the title (to save the progress) to xxxx-02, Performance meters are full all the time ( Average and Maximun) at 256 buffer, and at 90% in 512.(RME UCX).
The sound is a mess with droputs, peak noises…
I´d try everything, from power configuration to other more advance conf in windows and bios, but nothing seems to solve the problem.
My other projects are fine, the problem is only with this one.
Select ‘Delete Program Preferences’ and then ‘OK’.
Even simple things like color scheme can cause problems, my computer now doesn’t like high power scheme for Cubase, it works great on ‘normal’, go figure…I am baffled but at least I got to work, and I too had horrendous spiking issues.
You just said this is being caused by a third party plugin. Try saving your project under a different name and remove the plugins until you find the culprit, then check if there’s an update available for the plugin. If there is not, consider contacting the developer about the issue.
Sadly, I believe that the file is corrupted. Cubase does that, as I said, save constantly (save new version is a good idea) and at the first sign of trouble, abort the session.
Try a couple of other things:
Save the project as template - open a new project and open your template on this new project.
Start a new Cubase session and import all the tracks (you will have to import the tempo track from the corrupted file, I am not sure if Cubase 11 can import the tempo track).
Open an empty project, open the Cubase file you have trouble with. Don’t activate. You can disable all tracks on your bad Cubase session. Once you have done that, activate the session, see if this works for you.
Again, I am so sorry to hear that. I hear you. I tried to move to Studio One and it was like an Alien console to me…Cubase is unfortunately irreplaceable to me and I have to take all the issues that come with it…
I’m confused. In this topic you’re saying that this is an one-off issue (as far as I can tell) that was caused by a third party plugin, but your takeaway from it is that you should switch DAWs? That makes no sense to me.
Check other forums and you’ll see plenty of horror stories about corrupted projects from pretty much every other DAW. This sounds very tame in comparison. As I understand, performance issue aside, this project is still fully functional and should be completely salvageable. If removing plugins doesn’t help, then open your old original project or create a new one, then use File > Import > Tracks from Project to extract the tracks from this broken project. That should work, or at least help you locate the track that’s causing problems.
You said earlier that disabling all third party plugins made the performance meters drop down to 5%. It sounds like you’re missing something.
You should try temporarily uninstalling the Softube plugin that originally caused the issue. There could be a “ghost” version of this plugin inserted into one of your tracks. Remove both VST2 and VST3 versions of the plugin.
