This, Steinberg, this is ALL your fault. Have you ever considered that maybe, just maybe, Cubase starts behaving weird and freezes some stuff and you’ll want NOT to save the session but just run the last autosave? Are you people serious about the way you do things?
Context: Macosx Catalina, Cubase 11.0.10, I’m working on the final automation touches on my mix session (working for the last 4 hours). The track I’m working on has W(write auto) on, I’m opening a new plugin on that track, search for a preset and notice Cubase is writing automation on that too, because the plugin has W enabled since it’s on the track(which is stupid, it’s a new plugin, the track should have W on only for whatever fader volume and mute, I can enable W in a new plugin by myself, thank you!). Whatever, I notice it wrote automation and click ONCE the UNDO button in my mixer (top left) and ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE. It tells me that the auto data that I’m supposed to undo can not be recovered later. OK, I press that, nothing happens, the dialog box doesnt move. I press it again, it freezes and presses it by itself another dozen times. I then click cancel a few good times and the dialog box finally disappears. I’m looking at the auto data in my main windows and I CAN’T SCROLL!!! I can’t see what it’s done, what it has undone, the scroll feature doesn’t work anymore. Panicked, I quit Cubase without saving(because I don’t want to open a crashing session, right?). Well, Cubase deletes EVERYTHING I’VE WORKED ON FOR THE LAST 4 HOURS, including autosaves and data. What the hell? Are there files in the trash? NO! Can I possibly recover my work? No!!! Is this a glitch that Steinberg didn’t solve and lead to this? Of course! That’s how you lose hours of work! Thank you, Steinberg! Thank you so much!
