Crash: time-stretching audio clip in project window

Are you getting more and more frustrated with Cubase crashes and buggy features?

  • Not at all
  • No worse than other DAWs
  • A little
  • Yeah, starting to chafe
  • OMG, what’s going on at Steinberg?

Sigh. I’ve had a really bad day with Cubase 9.5. First I had a corrupt project (which still is corrupt). Then in trying to salvage the project the export functions failed to export Media (fixed in the newest download). But now, just slaving away comping vocals, I go to time-stretch a mono audio clip in the Project window and POOF!!!

Crash log below.

Soapbox rant: I’ve been a software professional since 1984 and a Cubase user (first PC, now Mac) since the early 1990’s, starting with Cubase 32 on Windows. I know it’s a complex piece of code; I get that. But it seems to be getting buggier, and this is a real source of frustration and consternation, whether you’re a music production professional and the clock is ticking, or a hobbiest who only has a few hours to make progress. Either way, crashes that lose work and bugs that take hours to work around (like Cubase corrupting a project) are not welcome. This cannot continue.

Is it just me?
