Crash on Auto Fades Settings Dialog

Cubase is crashing when I try and change, or even see the auto fade settings. Any ideas? I can’t even find a way to disable them in this current project.

Cubase 10.0.20 on Windows 10

Hi,

Could you try in Cubase Safe Start Mode?

If it’s still crashing, could you attach the *.dmp file, located in Documents/Steinberg/Crash Dumps folder, please?

Yes - it causes crashes for me as well.

However worse than this, Auto Fades is completely broken 10.0.20 - I’ll make a new topic about it in issues.

Hi,

Please attach the crash dump file.

The issue persists when booted in safe mode. dmp file attached.
Cubase 10.0.20.187 64bit 2019.5.4 15.28.38.312.dmp (1.53 MB)

And a Mac one using Safe Start -

Hi,

I cannot reproduce it here. But I reported it to Steinberg CAN-22633.

Do you have an older Cubase preferences folders? Could you try to rename these folders, to make sure you get really the Factory Settings, please?

If you check the Nuendo forum they are also having this problem there as well, so it seems like an across the board code issue.

Mine doesn’t crash all the time, but if for example you were to to check out what was wrong with auto fades in general (as in its totally broken as described in my other post here!) and flicked between the general settings and the tracks settings a couple of times, you would get a crash I’m sure :wink:

I can confirm Auto Fades settings is broken. I got all the time crashes.

Auto Fades Broken here too.
I consider this a very serious issue, as autofades are an integral part of my workflow, and such a basic feature.

Does Steinberg acknowledge this? Any plans for fixing it?

Thank you.

Hi,

Thank you.

I can reproduce them and I reported to Steinberg CAN-24602.

Hi,

This issue has been fixed in Cubase 10.0.40 update.

Well that’s just great - the feature STILL does not work but the crash has been fixed!!!

What is going on at Steinberg? How can this be left broken like this for so long???

Hi,

What exactly doesn’t work, please?

Its not just Cubase - Nuendo is also broken as was reported in the Nuendo forum after the 10.0.20 release

Hi,

Sorry, I cannot test it right now. What do you mean by “unstable”, please? Does it crash?
