I just installed a Cubase Pro 8.5 today. V8.5.15/64bit.
The command “Render in place” (DRY setting) behaves mysterious ways and crashes.
On midi tracks with VST instruments with multiple channels activated this happens:
If I select one track, Cubase will create all tracks for the VST instrument in question, and it will create empty tracks but the one I asked to render.
If I select six tracks for the particular VST instrument, then for each track Cubase will create six tracks of which five are empty.
Every time it will crash either during rendering or subsequently when playing back the tracks.
I tried this with Maschine (VST64 v.184.108.40.20669) and Battery (VST64 v.220.127.116.11), and Halion Sonic SE.
For a single channel VST instrument track there is no problem rendering full tracks or single parts.
I have been looking forward to playing with this new software. I am very disappointed, so I hope that someone in this forum will be able to help me out. The described setup will be my standard setup, when moving my projects from Maschine for mixdown.
