Can’t click anywhere in Cubase with any response whatsoever.
Totally bricked after the startup routine is completed and the project window gui is shown.
Becomes useless and unclickable.
What do you need from me Steinberg? Please let me know how I can use my $600 DAW. This is too much freezing and crashing and without good cause.
Others reporting Cubase Pro 12 crashing a lot too, not just me. How can this still be happening so much, so frequently?
Cubase runs very Stable on Win 10 and the number of posts you see out of the number of actual users is not a lot but your being unlucky, could you please post a crash report so someone might be able to guide you to what’s causing the problem .
BTW 12.0.5 is very stable , if you do manger the get a project open try saving a version of it under the 12.0.5 and see if your still having the issues
If you launch the Cubase by opening the CPR file directly, you can give it a try to launch the Cubase itself first and then open the CPR file.
If you already do this way, you might want to try deleting the profiles as well as disabling the 3rd party plugins tentatively. Once Cubase is launched properly, it might be fine to open the project with the 3rd part plugins again. I don’t know why but I get the same situation and I can fix with this way always so far.
my honest hunch is that certain Cubase windows that I made ‘always on top’ were causing this GUI freeze (where the Cubase program becomes unclickable), maybe in combination with making the outer program window maximized. I don’t know, but so far the freezes are kept at bay when I’m not using ‘always on top’.
I can’t say for sure, I guess I gotta learn how to analyze the freeze dump file.
Yes, could also be 3rd party plugins (a frequent culprit). I will also try to disable unused Profiles as mentioned above.
Hi, I have exactly the same problem on Windows 11 and Cubase Artist, freeze in hub on project start. You state that Cubase is working on the issue, but I can see from other people that it has been a problem for many users for quite some time. Do we have any indication on when Steinberg will solve this critical problem?
I have no idea, but having an acknowledgement from Steinberg Support that this is (a) known and (b) actively being fixed is probably as good as it’s going to get with regard to knowledge about what’s going on with this bug fix
Today Cubase is being extra crashy. Can’t use it at all, even after PC restart.
Starts up fine, loads the project window fine, then consistently I have about 3 seconds where I can click around until everything becomes frozen.
Every single time I fire it up today, this is happening. So far 4 PC restarts and about 10 times I’ve opened Cubase Pro 12 in total.
Edit: it’s a TIME thing. If I don’t touch the initial Hub screen, it freezes again after a few seconds. If I quickly load a project, it will load the project, and then again after a few seconds everything freezes.
Tried various projects, none of which have the same plugins. So it’s likely not a plugin.
Bumping this as I have the same problem, more frequently in recent weeks (without updating anything or changing the installation of Cubase as well as used plugins). Puzzling and extremely annoying, especially since killing Cubase then gets the license server upset, so the quickest and safest way to the next try is to reboot the machine… Sigh…
Thanks for your quick response. That did not do it for me. License Manager says everything is peachy. Cubase still froze this morning about 30s into starting my project directly (this has been working almost flawlessly for two+ years). I suspect its either Win10 having updated the graphics drivers, or me adding and removing a couple of portable drives and Cubase not liking that. Would be nice to have a watchdog in Cubase that notices when it freezes up and then gives you some indicator why this may have happened. Alas, I understand that diagnostics are not sexy for a product…
