If you are experiencing the graphics and GUI issues that seem to be plaguing a good amount of Mac users, then this is what needs to happen if you want a fix!
I’ve been talking with Fabio and we need to consolidate as much info as possible to try to help remedy this longstanding and painful issue. Please carefully read what he is requesting and how to get it to him, and directly send Fabio the information. You can post it here as well if you want, but you MUST email the info to him.. I want to get this remedied and this is the only way to help make that happen.
Friends, please: ONLY post here as specifically outlined below. No angry posts, rants, other issues, or other discussions at all on this thread, please. Keep this productive and laser-focussed – leave anything else to another thread.
From Fabio: "GUI issues on OS X are known since a while, although they affect users and applications in very different ways. The point is to see if it’s possible to improve the situation for those who experience the issue with Cubase, not start an argument. Those who want to report can send a system report to: info[at]steinberg.de - please, make sure to use "Mac slow GUI issue - ref. fbmgi16" as the subject.
I need to specifically know the kind of project, how the issue manifests, GPU (graphics card) used, amount of screens, resolution and type of connection. In order to restrict the search, please, also make sure to:
Remove automatic hitpoint detection
Render time-stretched events
Consolidate tracks made up of hundreds sliced events
Make sure there are no formerly black-listed plug-ins in use
Check that no backup service (TimeMachine) is running while the issue occurs and that the file-system is not encrypted
How to get a system report (make sure to do it while Cubase is running):
– Apple menu
– About this Mac
– System Report
– Once open, File -> Save
And any other details you feel are relevant. Thank you!"
