Critical graphical glitch Cubase 10.5

Hi guys,
I just bought the upgrade from C10 to 10.5 opened the C10 project and realized that I cant continue my work because the graphics, waveforms… colours are all over the place, faders missing etc. Is that something to be expected in 2020? :laughing:

Here is the same frame of the very same projects:
Thanks for any suggestions.



Hi and welcome,

Could you try in Cubase Safe Start Mode, please?

Try to update your graphics card driver, please. Or use native Windows graphics card driver instead of the manufacturer driver.

Hi and thanks :slight_smile:

Starting in the safe mode did not fix the issue, unfortunately.
I also have the newest drivers installed.

Just to clarify, I never had any issues like this before updating the Cubase in the past. Only now going from 10 to 10.5.
Also, the 10 runs still fine.

Also tried that second option (disabling all 3rd party plugins) didn’t work…

I’ll try a reinstall.

So re-installing the 1.5 somehow fixed the issue :slight_smile:
Hopefully it stays that way because I’m really not aware that I did anything differently.

Did you mean to write ‘10.5’? If not, what do you mean by 1.5.

Oh yes 10.5, sorry for the confusion :slight_smile:


This is Graphics card issue. Try to use native graphics card driver, as I suggested, please.

Some users already reported the same issue here on the forum multiple times. At the end, it was on the graphical card side.
