With the proviso that i don’t have mega huge projects … C12.0.30 works pretty darn well on my very old computer (c. 2014) which was middle grade at best when I bought it (details in forum profile).

I read your info on your new license policy, and I thank you guys very much for the one-time registration on each computer. Nevertheless, I just ran into an issue, just today.

I have two desktops with Cubase, and a third on a laptop that I just installed two weeks ago. Just before this latest update. I am using it to control my software synths (Halion, etc.) for live performance. Just before we went on, the computer locked up, requiring me to connect the the internet so that cubase could check the license. I then had to restart the laptop for the system to work. Now… everything I have is legally purchased; I do not cheat on licenses etc. So this was extremely inconvenient. Hopefully this bug can be sorted out?

Thank you for your kind consideration. I love Steinberg products, by the way. Always have, but they are better now than they’ve ever been!

I just had a similar problem. Cubase Pro 12.0.50 would sometimes scramble audio in/out settings. I have not found a pattern yet. I usually open older projects with older Cubase versions. But I think the problem started when I unknowingly open an older(11) project in 12.0.50

A post was split to a new topic: I didn’t receive the plug-in vouchers from the last sale

Update installed without a hitch and is running just fine. Thank you.

I decided to take a chance and install Cubase 12 again in the latest version on a clean installation of Windows 11. After installing some Steinberg plug-ins, to my surprise everything worked flawlessly. I started installing more plug-ins including SynthMaster 2.9 in its latest version and my joy quickly disappeared. It was not even possible to move this plug-in on the screen because the PEAK indicator was red all the time. I uninstalled this plug-in and installed another ones i.e. NEXUS, SPIRE and AVENGER and everything works perfectly! I am really pleasantly surprised that after the latest update Cubase works really well. I just hope it will stay like this :slight_smile: Just in case, I turned off automatic Windows updates for a while :wink:

My metering scale and colour setup still not working. Always locked
with default metering colour scheme and scale. OS: Windows 10.

Maybe a daft question, But you are clicking on apply after making changes, right?
Edit: ignore this, I see ggmanestraki below was more observant than me.

Those settings don’t affect the channel meters.

Thanks for the reply. The point is that I don’t see the changes being applied on both metering and colour scheme.

Basically I was expecting the mixer channels to have the same scale and colour scheme as the meter on right tab.
Can somebody tell if already faced same issue and how to overcome it. Or this is a known and reported bug?


look again at my pic, you need to select the one that says ‘Channel Meter’ in the scale box to change the colour of the channel mixers.


Thanks, I’ve got it now :wink:
Personnaly I would like to have the channels metering reflecting the same meter as the one on right tab instead of been locked on the +3b digital scale and juggling around with the colours of it…
And the meter on right tab is the master one…

Guys. Metering colours has been broken for a long time - do a search.

But in the two topics you linked, the given solution is to select the right meter scale in the selection box to set its corresponding colors… The same answer was given by @SurrealistBunny a few posts above in this current thread, screenshots included. It’s in no way broken, but simply a user mistake.


Try it - its broken! At least on Mac.

The right hand master meter works OK - although you can no longer set your scale / colours like you could when this was available from within the main preferences cabs in C11

You CANNOT however get a channel preset to work from within the main preferences tab - choose what you like from the dropdown menu, but you’ll always get the +3db Digital (Channel Meter).

All the other options DO NOT work. So no K metering, VU metering, LUFS etc in the channel meters.

The only thing you can currently do is edit that +3db Digital meter preset to show different colours.

As explained in the posts you linked to, that preference screen is not setting the channel default, it’s purely a selector to change which meter you’re changing the format of.

To set what meter type is used you can only change the right meter type. Channel strips are fixed to +3 Digital scale, and always have been as long as I’ve used Cubase.

It was previously just “Channel” and “Master” colour schemes which is probably what causes the confusion when people say it’s broken(?):

Obviously you can set up colouring to create your own db zones to suit, the only difference to the old method is you can have many metering types on the master/right now, hence why there’s a selector within the preferences screen.
