Cubase 12.0.50 continuously crashing and I keep losing all of my plugins


Running the latest version of Cubase on a new M1 Max Mac Studio (macOS 12.6.1 / 64GB). This is on a fresh install of the OS and Cubase.

I’m getting constant crashes and when I restart Cubase and re-open the session(s), I get an error and a list of all the sessions plugins that can’t be found. I then have to go into the Plug-In Manager and manually rescan all of my plugins. This is happening constantly.

Corrupt preference file maybe? Cubase has so many not sure where to begin… Thanks for any help. Trying to finish school and this is getting seriously frustrating.

Simply start the daw in Cubase Safe Mode, and disable preferences to test if that’s the problem.
