I have the Cue1 source button in the control room panel always set to “mix” (yellow). The Control room source button is always set to “Cue” (blue). I always save with these settings. After re-start of Cubase these two buttons have always forgotten their saved settings, Cue 1 being set to “Cues” (blue) and Control room being set to “mix” (yellow). Is there a way to have these buttons keep their saved settings?
I’ve had this problem also with 6.xxx versions as far as I remember.
Probably because Cubase has the tendency to soft crash upon closing a project. So it cannot save CR state.
If you are able to open an easy project, set up CR, save, close (without crash), reopen, maybe you create the proper CR state, so that if it crashes, it will default to proper saved state. Just a thought.
Do you have any UAD? What plugin if any do you have on CR?
Thanks for the reply. I have stuff from Native Instruments, Rob Papen, Garritan, Voxengo, Waves, Music Lab, Toontrack, iZotope… No UAD, but I do have TC Powercore Firewire & PCI (Classic). I’ve had some problems with the Powercores (e.g Powercore plugins not initializing while loading, or distorted sound initially), but the Powercores always start to work ok after re-booting. There has also been quite a lot of crashing when quitting Cubase, never found out why…
To test the theory of the Powercores making the status problem: I disabled the Powercores (from the Windows control panel) and created a very simple project, set the Control room buttons as I wanted and saved. Exited the program (no crashing) and then reloaded the project. The Control room settings were not recalled… so maybe the problem is somewhere else then.
Up until 7.05 I believe it was, CR settings were recalled - particularly which panels were open. I’m not sure if these were saved globally or in the Project .
It’s funny how these ‘feature requests’ that nobody seems to remember ever being an issue find their way into Cubase, yet features that have been requested over and over with each new version seem to be ignored.
Who in their right mind (except perhaps an anticubase jerk) would suggest a feature like this - “Please don’t save CR settings.”? What kind of decision maker at Steinberg would think “oh yes this would be a great feature” and approve it?
No, I refuse to believe this is the result of a feature request, it’s an error in the programming.
