Bass Station VSTi freezes Cubase 8

I just started using Cubase 8 on Windows 7. When trying to add the VST instrument track with Bass Station, the application freezes. The only way out seems to be via End Task in Windows Task Manager.

Hint: I succeeded in adding the instrument without freezing when I pressed Ctrl+Shift+S (with intention to save project) the moment I added the Bass Station instrument (milliseconds apart). So I guess it’s related to windowing.
