Just upgraded to Cubase 11 today, and then spent the day installing and authorising plugins. It seems that Cubase gets more and more temperamental with each upgrade. I have all kinds of random issues.
Several plugins get blacklisted because Cubase claims they’re 32 bit, despite the fact that they are in fact 64 bit, and were running fine in Cubase 9 (also 64 bit only) yesterday. One of these is a GRMTools plugin, installed a part of a bundle of 12 plugins, 11 of which run fine, but this one got picked out randomly, and told it was 32 bit.
Several more get blacklisted with the simple message ‘Not a valid plugin’ - again despite running fine in Cubase 9
One (Image-Line’s Vocodex) gets blacklisted because Cubase says it can’t find a specific file in Image Line’s common files folder. So I checked, and the file was exactly where it was looking for it. More to the point, another Image-Line plugin, which needed the same file is running.
Several plugins actually made it through the scan, but then crashed Cubase when I tried to open them. And when I say crashed, Cubase simply vanishes, without any kind of error message. Again, nothing seems to link these plugins. For instance one is Soundtoy’s ‘Little Alter Boy,’ although a whole bunch of Soundtoys stuff is running fine.
Is there a list of known plugin issues anywhere? And are there any workarounds?
